Hello and welcome to the 2nd jazz podcast. While the first jazzcast focused on new music, this one has music from 1947 to 1961. It’s more of a Jazz 101 type pod, as some of the songs are considered classics. We start with Stan Getz (pre-Bossa Nova phase), slide into Clifford Brown, then get a classic Oliver Nelson tune that is followed by Cannonball Adderley. The final set has Mingus, Monk and Bill Evans. Beautiful music. Thank you for tuning in.Download here
Hello and welcome to the new edition of the podcast. In today’s show, we start with one of the break out bands of 2014. We then dip into the 1960’s before apologizing for what we might have done. The next set features a Rolling Stones’ cover and we get psychedelic in our final set.Download here

Hello and welcome to the newest PB Podcast. Hope you enjoyed the first PB Podcast, and if you haven’t heard it yet, it should still be available on brennick.net. Today’s podcast doesn’t have any theme whatsoever – I started out with the first song (“Breakdown” by Alice Russell) after hearing an ad for the new season of Mad Men, then played whatever song I was thinking about while hearing the first song. The results are songs from the 1960’s through today.
I will say that the song by Asa – “Ok, Ok” reminds me of what is happening in Nigeria right now, with the kidnapped girls and Boko Harum. Very scary.Download here
I decided that I wanted to share music with others and so I started recording podcasts to share with others. The podcasts are about 1 hour and will consist of ‘general’ music that I like. To share the podcasts I got a website and started a weblog called brennick.net. I haven’t seen too many podcasts that play ‘general’ music – general as opposed to genre-specific. The only one I’ve heard that I listen to consistently is Radio Free Wohlman done by Dave Wohlman. I started listening to his podcast 7 years ago, and I’ve heard every podcast he’s put out in that time at least once. I urge you to listen to his podcast.
When I was younger I used to make mix tapes for people, then moved onto putting together CD’s of music. Doing a music podcast is the next logical and technological step. The change with the podcast is that I am introducing the podcast and songs between sets in the way a DJ does on the radio.
I started out by recording two podcasts, trying to learn how to use the technology I have to build the podcast. I wanted to have a consistent opening to my podcast, and I put together a fairly complicated set with music, voice overs and sound effects. After listening to the opening countless times I decided to scrap it and have a simple introduction (for now).
After listening to the 2 podcasts I completed, I scrapped them and wondered if I would ever move forward with the project. I was still having technical problems, and I really don’t like to hear myself talk. I then sat down and really learned how to use the equipment properly and have recorded some podcasts that are much improved. There is a lot more improvement to make, but the music is excellent and the transitions between songs work very well.
My goal is to have one new podcast every week. I may also have an occasional special podcast that might be more genre-specific. I’m thinking about doing a semi-regular jazz podcast and perhaps an occasional blues podcast. I’d like to get a consistent audience for the podcasts – I’d like to have people listen and validate what I’m doing. Please listen and make comments and suggestions – I’ll be looking to improve what I do (and maybe find an intro I actually like).
Thank you for your time and ears.
