Back on December 12, 2009, Humble and Fred recorded Humble and Fred's Fifth Podcast
It's a good thing we didn't make this Christmas themed, because here it is going live on January 4th. The home page for this podcast, should you want to subscribe to the podcast in iTunes or download the MP3, is http://www.torontomike.com/humbleandfred/.
Thanks to Acme Pictures for donating the web space, Dan Duran for producing the audio and Bingo Bob and PROUD-FM for donating the studio. Oh yeah, and thanks to Humble and Fred for another hour of great
As I type, Humble and Fred are recording Humble and Fred's Fifth Podcast. The top secret location can now be revealed. It's the home of PROUD FM at Church and Wellesley, the first gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender focused station in the country.
And here's a pic of Humble and Fred's arrival. In the background, you'll see Dan Duran and Bingo Bob.
As soon as Dan punts me the MP3, I'll make it easy for you to hear the magic for yourself. In the meantime, keep reaching for that rainbow!
When it comes to getting my news, I turn to the CBC first. It's straight up, solid information, and it doesn't appear tainted by glitz, glamour or bias. I like CBC Newsworld for my television news and CBC Radio One for my radio news.
A tremendous resource when it comes to news and current affairs in this country is the vast assortment of CBC Podcasts available online. One gem, which you might not know about but will thank me for pointing it out, is the CBC Radio Hourly newscast that's always current and always available at the same url. This is awfully convenient. Download it, or listen to the < 5 minute broadcast at http://podcast.cbc.ca/mp3/hourlynews.mp3.

I spent the afternoon at the Dominion on Queen enjoying the live recording of the Humble and Fred 20th Anniversary Podcast of Memories. I'll have complete audio and hopefully some video to share early next week.
It was a great crowd full of family, friends, fans and many who worked on the Humble and Fred morning show. The guys covered the entire history of the show, sharing great stories and many laughs. Special guests included Nick Kypreos, Tyler Stewart from the Barenaked Ladies, Psychic Nikki, Lou Schizas and Humble and Fred producers Dan Duran, Bingo Bob, Scary Pete, Chicken Shwarma and Andy Wilson.
It was great fun and a fantastic way to spend a Saturday afternoon. Here are some shots I took. The rest are in this photoset. Stay tuned in the coming days for more audio, video and photographic evidence of the hilarity that ensued on Queen Street East this afternoon.
I've been a member of Odeo for many years. Odeo was where I'd upload MP3s for sharing on this site. I always considered it YouTube for audio.
Odeo is how I'm streaming Ok, Blue Jays, Tom Cheek's Greatest Hits and these old Humble and Fred Christmas bumpers. The Odeo Studio was like a jewel in the rough, exactly what I was looking for. But now, Odeo has stopped allowing uploads, effectively eliminating the studio and forcing you to host your mp3 files elsewhere.
Is there a YouTube for audio files? I'm looking for a free service where I can upload MP3 files and easily embed a flash player.
I've got some audio I want to share but I'm not interested in hosting the files myself. If you know of a service I can try, leave me a comment.
Update: Testing Hound Bite
On Fred's entry today about his new job in Peterborough, Humble just left a comment.
Congratulations on the next phase. Feels great to be back doing something don't it? As you know I wish you all the best in the world, I just thought I'd say it here as well. Let's start thinking about the H+F 20 year anniversary podcast.
Let me be clear about this, I will do everything in my power to ensure this happens. There will be a Humble and Fred 20th Anniversary Podcast and I'll be there to take pics and witness the fun in person.
Fellow Humble and Fred fans, I will not let you down. You have my word...
Lately, instead of syncing my iPod with the typical playlist of old favourites, I've been loading her up with podcasts. Here are a few of my favourites.
- CBC Radio Podcasts - There is so much great content here, I had to lead with it. You can download MP3s of "DNTO", "Sounds Like Canada", "Vinyl Cafe Stories", "Quirks and Quarks" and more. It's one of my favourite pages on the web.
- This American Life - Here's the trick with This American Life. The podcasts aren't free, but the most recent one is... so every week I shoot over and download the freebie. It's fantastic.
- Anti-Hit List - I first discovered John Sakamoto's "Anti-Hit List" in Eye Weekly, but followed it over to the Toronto Star. Although he only plays songs by the indie artists in his weekly chart, for licensing reasons, it's always a treat. Maybe it's because he only plays indie artists that I like the AHL so much.
- ESPN Radio Podcasts - "The Best of Mike and Mike", "Pardon the Interruption", "Baseball Today"... it's all here.
- AlternaGeek - This one is for the geeks, but I like it anyway. AlternaGeek podcasts cover topics including Linux, Mac, Windows, internet tech, blogging, web2.0, gadgets, software, tech news, howtos, and reviews.
Let me know about all the great podcasts I missed in the comments and I'll check them out.
It was chilly today, and the kids and I were looking for a fun little project to tackle together. I thought I'd take my emarketing skillz and apply them at home. And so, the Family Podcast was born.
Originally it was going to be a true podcast, with an RSS feed and everything, but the production values were so poor I just decided to throw in on YouTube. If you're going to do this, I highly recommend you use an actual microphone and not the default internal mic that's built into your laptop.
Very few of you will find this interesting, but this isn't for you. This is for the grandmas and uncles and aunts.
Here's our first Family Podcast. I'll work on the production values and maybe even encourage coherency for round two. Enjoy...
A year ago this week, Humble and Fred recorded together for the last time. When we were recording the Valentine's Day Podcast of Love, I assumed there would be a fourth podcast. There wasn't.
The archivist that I am, I'm hosting all the Humble and Fred podcasts, including this one. They're now living at http://www.torontomike.com/humbleandfred/. As you'll hear, I wasn't just in the room for this Humble and Fred finale, I was a part of the show.
Happy Valentine's Day 2007 everybody!
Happy Valentine's Day! Humble and Fred's Valentine's Day Podcast of Love is now available at http://www.humbleandfred.com/.
Head over there for just under an hour of hilarity. The ensuing laughter is not only good for your heart, it's also free.
