RadioZoom is one of the earliest podcasts to come out of the initial wave of excitement about the new medium in 2004. What started out as an experiment, a nerdy implementation of recently discovered coding skills, and in a era post-college radio days, RadioZoom became an adventure in social networking among fellow podcasters and people who actually listened to what I was publishing to the world. Stories, soundseeing, and music. Podcasting for the hell of it.

    I know that it’s been a long time, but here is another episode of RadioZoom. In the spirit of Earth Hour, I used some rare down time to record a Six Song for the first time in a long time. Without getting into more detail, I hope you enjoy it.

    This afternoon I headed out to the Commodore (with Raul in tow) to interview one of my all-time favourite bands. Chris Demakes of Less Than Jake was great to talk to and we’re really looking forward to the show tonight.

    Tickets are still on sale but they’re going fast. As this is a quick episode, you have time to listen to the conversation, the tunes, and still make your way down to the Commodore for the show as Less Than Jake takes the stage around 11:15pm.

    Special thanks go to Tris for lending me his audio recorder for this episode (although my mic levels are all over the place). Our mobile podcasting gear is still missing/nowhere to be found so we’re making due right now and getting by thanks to the generous social media community in Vancouver.

    Trying my hand at podcast producing yet again, we go mobile for this special episode. Yesterday Keira and I met up with Zac, Taylor and Isaac Hanson before their show in Vancouver. We learned about The Walk, what they’ve been up to in the 8 years they’ve been away from our city, and most of all that these grown men truly do have talent and a whole lot of heart.








    Music in this episode:




    Clip: MMMBop from the album Middle of Nowhere by HansonClip: Great Divide by Hanson – Available for $0.99 on iTunes, proceeds going to HIV/AIDS research



    Links to note:




    Hanson’s official websiteTake The WalkTOMS Shoes



    My official article has been posted on E!Online. You can also check out Keira’s wrap up blog post, including her photos, as along with my recap blog post. Big shout out to Dave as well for lending me his M-Audio since our mobile gear has gone missing.

    I sat down in a local coffee shop, opened up my MacBook (since our mobile gear is missing), and had a chat with Mark Latham of Voter Media and the Vancouver Election Blog Contest.

    John is back for a super special Six Song with a theme. In fact it’s so special, there are actually seven songs for your listening pleasure.




    Dandy Warhols – Mohammed, NietzcheLocal H – How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Rock, 500,000 Scovilles, What Can I Tell YouLess Than Jake – Motto, History of a Boring Town



    And yes, I produced this episode hence the many many seconds of non-speaking at the beginning. But hey, I don’t claim to be a radio professional by any means eh. Thank goodness for podcasting.
