So I posted that note last night, musing on the old 4am music podcast I used to do.
Checked the dump email account this morning, and found people had started sending music overnight, presumably not completely understanding what I was saying.
So now I feel bad about having gotten the music.
So… maybe I’ll try this again.
I am experimentally resuming a podcast here called The 4am. It’s composed entirely of music sent to me by bands and musicians. If I like it, I play it, basically. I like all kinds of music, field recordings, noise, spoken word, anything. The 4am has ranged between 2500 and 8000 listeners per podcast in its history.
If you think you’d like to be on the podcast, please email me your music (mp3, 128k or better) at warrenellis @ gmail.com. That’s my "public" email address that gets checked every day or two, not my personal one. Please include a link to your preferred website. Tell your friends. But I can only play mp3s sent by the artists themselves. If you send me mp3s from bands you really like, I just have to delete them. Okay? Thanks.
Spread the word.
(And I warn you now, I’m not going to mix the fucker down to 128k this time around.)
