Doc Searls Live On The New Jazz Thing This Thursday, April 17, 2003 - The Intersection of Blogging and Radio
Doc Searls, godfather of blogging and accordian legend, will be phoning in Live to The New Jazz Thing, this Thursday, April 17, 2003 (time to be announced). You can hear the interview on Jazz 88, KSDS San Diego, 88.3 FM or via Webcast (I love saying that) at http://KSDS-FM.org.
A Googlism of Doc would seem to indicate more geek than renaissance man, but a brief reading of his weblog, one of the most read in the blogosphere, shows that he's more than just that or an accordian player. He's also a former radio man with lots of ideas on lots of Things. And most of them New. So it's a 2/3 fit for TNJT!
In particular, Doc has recently talked about RSS (a syndication format taking over the world) for Webcasts, a subject we've touched on before on TNJT and hope to implement for Jazz 88.
He's also been rumored to have a hand in new Radio and Blogging efforts in Boston that we will want to get some ideas on. He'll be bringing Radio, Marketing, and Blogging experience galor to any things he's involved in and we'll try to get a scoop on what he's thinking.
And since Adam is itching to get back into the Radio Blogging thing, I'll impart a little bit about what I see as some integration points. My goal is to have each and every 'spot' on a TNJT Live show available as an RSS entry on the station's blog. Each tune, each public service announcement (psa), each break where I read from someone's blog, even each seque between tunes as an blog post, accompanied by the audio from the show, as a beginning point for conversation. Tunes are obvious, with communication being a review of the tune and what each listener who wants to blogticipate giving their own review. PSA's are also pretty good starters for discussion, with people who have used these services or participate in them giving everyone the real lowdown on how they serve the public. The point I make as I try to scoot out the door, is that there are lots of individual points of information that come out of a show like mine (and many others) that just scream for feedback of a blog-kind.
Bill Yeager of the SDSU Jazz Ensemble Live on The New Jazz Thing This Thursday, April 17, 2003 at 6:20 pm PT
Bill Yeager will be joining the fun Live on The New Jazz Thing, this Thursday, April 17, 2003, around 6:20 pm PT. You can hear the interview on Jazz 88, KSDS San Diego, 88.3 FM or via Webcast (I love saying that) at http://KSDS-FM.org.
Bill is the director of the San Diego State University Jazz Ensemble, which has a new disc out on Sea Breeze Vista (studly big band Jazz label) called "Where's My Hasenpfeffer?" We'll be playing some tunes from the disc and chatting with Bill about how this album came together. We'll also try and get some info on what's New at the SDSU Jazz Studies program that Bill and others have made world famous,
And Bill is a Jazz stud in his own right, so we'll see if we can find out if he has any time for New Jazz Things of his own,
Buddy Blue Live On The New Jazz Thing This Thursday, April 17, 2003 at 7:20 pm PT
Buddy Blue will be hanging out with us in Hour 2 of The New Jazz Thing Live (around 7:20-ish pm PT), this Thursday, April 17, 2003. You can hear the interview on Jazz 88, KSDS San Diego, 88.3 FM or via Webcast (I love saying that) at http://KSDS-FM.org.
We'll be talking about his new disc, "Sordid Lives", his various writing projects (one of which we linked to last week), and what the future holds for this long-time San Diego wild-man institution. Jazz chops abound on the new disc, so we'll be playing a few tunes from it also.
Where Does One Get Quicktime Videos of Current Events That Can Be Re-Published?
I'm looking for a Quicktime video of President Bush's speech today about his tax cut. One that I can freely mess around with a little bit in iMovie. Is there some publicly available content like this that independant bloggers like ourselves can use for quotes, etcs?
Associated inspiration for the above search comes in care of Jeff H., long-time friend, Jazz mentor, and wise-young-sage. In response to linkage to that currently-trendy-and-oh-so-deserving http://WeLoveTheIraqiInformationMinister.com by another sincerely searching coworker, Robert J drops this attributed poem bomb on us along with his sage-ish punch line...
"The Ogre does what ogres can,
I just pictured the video of Bush that I watched this afternoon on Feedroom (link thanks Dave), surupticiously muted in my square piece of office property we fondly call Cube-a, with no sound and the words to the above poem scrolling up like the opening scene-setting text in a Star Wars movie. With a bit of Quicktime video and iMovie titles, I should have been able to make that bit of commentary happen lickety split.
Here's a prototype using a photo borrowed from somewhere...
Obviously, black text doesn't work real well there. And I need some graphics training. Oh what I could to with a little more time and some resources. I'll bet nobody ever really says that. Onward!
