News and reviews of podcasts from around Liverpool and beyond
I came across this the other day while seaching for something else (often the way) - Inspidered are a local history group that meets , to discuss and produce representations of time and place. This is a new feature taht they introduced in November 2010 and contans interviews, personal recollections, stories and such things as soundscapes – ambient sounds capturing the moment. The first recording is of Sandra who recalls her Grandfather, and how he took charge of the family horse and cart business at the age of 14.
Check out the Inspired site and the podbean site for their podcasts.
In an effort to bring Art in Liverpool FM more arts and music audio from across Liverpool (and the Wirral) we have mananaged to convince Dan Lynch from Rathole Radio to let us mirror his fortnightly podcast Rathole Radio.
Broadcasting every fortnight Radio Visual offers an insight into the New York Art scene. With high production values derived from the producers who are Claire Hamilton, the BBC Radio Merseyside arts reporter and John Connor the ex curator at FACT, Liverpool.
Podcasting is simple and we can show you how.
If it wasn’t simple I couldn’t do it, plus it’s a great way for communicating with your audience!
Let people know what you are up to, or what project is coming up next, maybe throw in a bit of performance and you have a great magazine programme. Let them listen to the excitement in your voice rather than the italics on the page.
It's here - Bernie Connor ex Crash FM DJ brings us his musical delights in podcast format.
Here Bernie is free from the constraints of Radio Station play lists and can once again express his love of music.
Good on you Bernie, we want more.
Preston FM has been doing a great job in the North West's third city. Built out of the 20 years of experience in arts and community projects from PRESCAP, Preston FM has had a great first 6 months.
If you start off serving the needs of the community in which you live and work as PRESCAP have done then it naturally follows that you will try and give the people a voice of their own and this is just what Preston FM has done. All of the ideas and talent comes from the local area with all sorts of community groups getting involved.
They offer full training in radio productions skills - even more reason to get involved. Or you could always give up some of your time each week as they are also seeking volunteers to help out. And maybe if you are looking for something more serious at the moment they are advertising for an assistant station manager
If you live in the area then retune that dial and pick up the real stories in your area, and if you live a little further away there is always Listen on line, and if you prefer your radio in bite size chuncks then they have a great range of podcasts available
