Show #005: CA3

For those of you who thought maybe my moniker of "music geek" was somewhat unwarranted, this episode should either put your mind at ease, or put you off the show altogether. But hey, it's my show, so expect me to be self indulgent, exploratory, and rebellious once in a while by appealing to something other than the greatest common denominator when it comes to music and interview topics, since that's really the whole point of this podcast.

I even conducted this week' interview without research or extensive notes (which is unheard of for me) -- just played their tracks a few times and decided to improvise. To that end, this show continues my experimentation with different interview styles and locations. This week, as you can tell, we are in public, at a sidewalk tavern located on a busy intersection in downtown Indianapolis. As such, the urban ambience (and wind) may be a bit loud at times, but hopefully will not detract from your listening enjoyment. It also makes the editing a little more obvious and choppy-sounding. Hopefully you still aren't expecting professional-quality production values from me after all these weeks.

On the backside of things, the podcast continues to grow in popularity (by about 50-100 listeners per week). This is mostly due to bands promoting their appearance on the show, obviously, and has little to do with anything I've done. However, it's been gratifying to see that, contrary to my expectations for a local music podcast, we actually have listeners in Alberta, Ontario, and Germany, which is extremely cool.  Since I didn't get a chance to say it in this weeks' show, a special thank you to those of you who subscribe (or at least regularly download) this show, and a hearty welcome to those of you who are here for the first time.  Check out our website (which I also failed to plug in the show) and our MySpace page for additional goodies and tidbits.

Solicitations and Submissions

Solicitations for blog posts can be made by sending and email to "blog -at- indyintune -dot- com" and should follow these guidelines:

  • Local (Indianapolis-based) acts always have priority.
  • Visisting acts playing a bill with one or more local acts are also considered.
  • We generally don't like to repeat content found on other sites. If your request already has a lot of coverage on other sites, it will be considered low-priority unless you can give us an exclusive angle.
  • For obvious reasons, we don't do solicited album reviews, though we do appreciate you letting us know when you have a new release. Consider coming in and talking about the album yourself live on the air or a podcast.
  • All of our staff writers are unpaid enthusiasts. All requests for blog posts are entirely at their descretion.
  • As such, they generally need a lot of lead-time to put something out -- we're talking weeks of lead time, not hours.
  • That said, individual authors have full authority to ignore the following guidelines and write whatever they want ... if you can convince them to.
  • In addition, feel free to write your own post and submit it for posting as a "guest blogger." Those almost always get accepted.
  • Finally, regional or national acts submitting without meeting the above guidelines are generally ignored. We're not trying to be dicks, but if you send us a generic form-letter with your press release, and it doesn't even remotely concern a local artist or event, then you're not part of our core focus.
