I Podcasted!

"You're whating a who?" my friend indignantly replies when I inform him I am recording a podcast with Adam and Bradley Sunday afternoon. "I think you just won the hipster Olympics."

Well. Olympian or not (I still maintain my t-shirt isn't ironic enough to qualify me for such a high honor), I had the infinite pleasure of being a guest on Have You Heard yesterday. The episode (number six) hit this morning, and clocks in at a little over an hour.

We go over music news, review Biirdie's forthcoming record Catherine Avenue, and all three of us make an album recommendation. My recommendation was...shocker...Fishboy, with Albatross: How We Failed to Save the Lone Star State with the Power of Rock and Roll. If you're any kind of regular reader of this blog, you know I've mentioned them several times, but I really think it's a record that deserves much wider attention than it's gotten so far. I just enjoy it.

And just for clarification purposes, I really like the Biirdie record. I know it got run through the ringer a little on the podcast, but I seriously recommend it. I've enjoyed having it and listened to it repeatedly, and I encourage you to buy it when it comes out on the 22nd and support this California group. In retrospect, I wish I'd defended it a little more, uh, vehemently.

Go listen! Have You Heard is quality every single week, and I'm honored to have been a part of it.

The episode sounds great, and you did a fantastic job. Looking back Bradley is in hyperbole mode which comes over as more sane in radio than it does in real life.

Like you, I've suffered from post recording regret many times. I think we did a fine job defending the record. Remember we play a track. Their music can speak for itself, and listeners form their own opinion before we tear into it.
