Summer Playlists and Todbits.tvby
I admit, I’m bad with playlists. John has running playlists (up tempo and low impact), songs for happy times, and rainy days. I basically abuse my “On-The-Go” which turns into “On-The-Go2” to “On-The-Go6” whenever I plug my ipod into my computer for juice (pause for shudders here).
I try to make and maintain playlists, really I do but I just don’t keep them up to date. Currently I have “summer”, “november”, “‘mallow” and “winturr”. Yes, original I know but seriously I’m still listening to songs I was hooked on about 18 months ago. Sure, there’s nothing wrong with re-visiting favourite beach tunes such as The (International) Noise Conspiracy, The Black Keys, Aberdeen City, Mates of State, and The Dandy Warhols (who are @ the Commodore this weekend), but it’s time I broadened my horizons.
To get a taste of what we’re into or going to be into, check out the RadioZoom podcast – other than that… I have a few favourite artists [Matt][Holly] with albums dropping this summer and am always on the look out for some killer new tunes. Great sources are Promonet, podsafe music network and well, John.
Speaking of podcasting and media, local CBC insider, radio and podcasting guru Tod Maffin is launching Todbits.tv this week.
Well, itâ€™s been a long time in the making, but Iâ€™m finally pleased to announce that Iâ€™ve inked a deal with Alliance Atlantis to do a six-month season of Todbits on video! The show, called Todbits.tv, will include my visits to some tech companies around Canada, showing off the latest cool gadgets, and 45 minutes of your tech questions, answered live (with you on video, if you have a web cam too).
We’ll have a bit more to say on the topic when the next episode of RadioZoom is released but in the meantime, but first Todbits.tv goes to air Friday night at 10ET/7PT.
