my report yesterday on KYOU radio
and their move to podcasting, I thought it would be interesting to point out a few of my favorites. So what should you tune into on KYOU? With hundreds of podcasts, there’s a lot of programming to chose from.
Fake Science Lab Report
A truly professional podcast focused on digital music, this program would fit right in on Los Angeles’ famous eclectic public station KCRW. One episode featured a report on remote collaboration, and how it affects world music. There was an interesting discussion on creative commons, and the creative differences inherent in remixes vs. collaboration. Another episode featured a segment with Christopher Morris of Ambient Airlines.
Tony Steidler-Dennison’s excellent blues program, featuring obscure and amazing blues musicians who would make an excellent addition to your music collection. As professional as they come, this is one of the station’s more popular podcasts according to Infinity’s Karen Mateo.
Knowledge is in the Pretending
This episode features the host talking about how to get together with your ex, without leaving your current flame. Humorous and entertaining, apparently this was based on a Cosmo article. We don’t suggest you try it at home.
Adam Tinkoff shares some great independent music. Despite my familiarity with the genre, Tinkoff surprised and impressed me, playing tracks I had never heard before, but intend to seek out.
First Thing In The Morning
Host Renee Dupree began with nice mix of ambient chill-out music; a good listen with your morning cup of Joe. Then there was the sound of machines, and metal grating on metal, and my ambient dream mix was suddenly a techno nightmare. Oddly enough, I still enjoyed it.
San Francisco Chronicle reporter Benny Evangelista’s podcast finds a new home on KYOU. Talk about podcasting, and KYCY’s format change to KYOU dominate the episode we heard.
