We Are Experiencing Technical Difficulties...

Sorry it's taking so much time to get a new show up, folks. I've been upgrading the podcasting setup with a new laptop for (eventual) mobile shows, a new mixer, and a groovy new mike. I had set aside some time this weekend to record a new show on the old setup, but the old setup was apparently older than I thought. It's now moved on to the great beyond where it frolic in the clouds with TI99-4As, Commodore 64s, and Apple 2Cs for eternity.

I'm going to try and salvage the hard drive tonight so I might conceivably get a new show out within the next few days. As for replacing the desktop, our association will be auctioning off their old computers in the next couple weeks, so I may be able to snag one cheap that way.

Bear with me. I have some really awesome tracks lined up for the next few episodes.

84: Trying to remember when I could fix anything with sound.

Lots of yummy music in this edition of the show. I meant to throw in a special thank you at the end to Parthenon Huxley for stopping on a dime and throwing together a couple of excellent "show IDs" this morning.

Also, I urge you to send me some feedback regarding the little news segment and the midpoint of the show. I know it's a bit raw, hence the "no frills," but I really want to know if I should put more effort into it or just pile it on the scrap heap.

Oh, and of course, subscribe to the James Deem/Ed James Popcast in iTunes and check out information for the Charlotte Popfest in July.
