Time for another (short) podcast! Most the songs on this list are new releases, plus I have the latest official single from I Am Not Lefthanded. I talk about Serial Podcast again, the 2015 NHL All-Star Game, and Project 52.
Kicking off 2015 with a somewhat lazy look at 2014; most of these tracks were taken from Jamendo’s Best of 2014 playlist, with a few exceptions. I’m going to try to keep up with the podcast on a more regular basis in 2015 as well. In today’s episode I mostly talked about random things. Apologies for some of the music hiccups! My intention today was just to get a podcast released. Stay tuned to the end of the episode & hear some podcast recommendations.
It's Saturday afternoon, and now's as good a time as any to release a podcast! I had no central theme today - just thought I'd find some cool Creative Commons music and string together a show. Still, I seem to have gravitated to a mostly Punk-themed selection but there should be a little bit for everyone (except maybe the hip hop crowd).
I found this report via the Free Music Archive. It's called the State of the Commons report, and basically highlights the strives forward that we've seen for Creative Commons licensing since 2006.
The first level of the report is a pretty neat looking infograph; there are printable versions in various formats (PDF, PNG, JPG - you name it) so if you were interested in printing it off and hanging it somewhere, you could. In it, the highlights include the increase of licenses from about 50 million in 2006 to a whopping 882 million in 2014. That is huge!
There is also a link to the much longer, wordier report - which to date I admit I haven't read. It looks like there is some solid information in there though, so I fully intend to read it (I am a copyright junkie, after all). If you're at all interested in copyright and Creative Commons, I think it's in your best interests to read the full report.
Overall the Creative Commons put together a very informative, extensive report that should be shared everywhere. Here's to even MORE licenses in 2015!
Not to be confused with the CBC Radio 3 Podcast Road Trip special, I've done this a couple of times in homage (read: rip off) of my favourite Canadian music podcast. While this podcast does not feature 100% Canadian music (in fact, I think it's 0% this week!), I talk about the Trans Canada Highway and some trivia related to it. All music today comes from Jamendo.com - check it all out below.
It's only been a few months...so time for another podcast, right? A lot of European artists in this week episode as I take a look at some of the top Jamendo artists in the EuroMusic contest. Links are below!
