If you haven’t listened to the Disquietude podcast I can strongly recommend it

I’ve been listening to it today and it really is very good. I can highly recommend it.

Some thoughts from the Smart Radio conference

This was a little while ago, but I’ve been busy, so I’m catching up at the moment. I go to a lot of events, especially right now it seems. Not all of them are of interest, but some are and so I thought I’d share some thoughts from this event which was all about Smart Radio.

Now a lot of what was in this event wouldn’t be of interest to Palm Sounds readers. However, there are a few snippets that I think will be, so I’m focusing on those.

So, what was interesting? Two things. First off …


I’ve known of Mixcloud for ages as I’m sure that many of you have, but I’ve never done anything with it at all. However, hearing about it first hand made me think of how it can be, and in fact is being used, and then how I might adapt that for what I’m thinking about doing.

I’d also be interested in know what any of you use Mixcloud for too.

The second thing …


There was quite a lively debate around podcasting which really grabbed my attention. As you might remember I was involved in the first mobile music podcast show, the TouchSound podcast. Sadly it stopped running some years ago and whilst there have been a few podcasts that have run for a while, there is still a podcast shaped gap in the mobile music world.

Listening to the debate made me think about the show again and if it would be possible to resurrect. I’m still considering it, but if you think it should come back I’d like to hear from you as to what you’d like to see in the show.
