Recording the Humble and Fred Christmas Podcast, 2010 Version

podcastI've just returned from a visit to the PROUD-FM studio at Church and Wellesley where we recorded the Humble and Fred Christmas podcast. This is our 8th podcast overall, and once again we were joined by Dan Duran and Bingo Bob. Humble also brought along the first Humble and Fred Podcast intern, a Ryerson student named Ari.

I've sat in on a bunch of these, so I've witnessed the evolution, but if you were a Humble and Fred fan from the 90s you'd likely be pretty surprised by the content. Instead of targeted a young male demographic, it's completely organic. The result is more heartfelt, with discussions about Humble's separation, Fred's daughter's wedding and the birth of Bingo Bob's first child. Don't get me wrong, it's still damn funny, but there's far more substance and thought-provoking discussion and slightly less dick and fart jokes. It's compelling stuff, and I hope you listen when I post the audio early next week.

As usual, I took some pictures. If you want to read more about Humble and Fred, this is the category for you. If you want to hear previous podcasts, hit up this page. If you want to hear about Dan Duran's herpes, Humble's new girlfriend or Fred's newfound appreciation for sitting down to go pee, wait for the MP3s next week.

Humble and Fred's Podcast of Bronze

podcastHumble and Fred recorded a podcast that would have been perfectly timed had it been released during the Olympics. Unfortunately, Dan just got me the MP3 today and the Olympics are looking pretty distant now in the rearview mirror.

Nevertheless, Humble and Fred have recorded this for you, and they're not charging you a dime. Enjoy...

Farewell Odeo, iMeem and Houndbite, Hello SoundCloud

soundcloudI've been searching for the YouTube of audio for years. I'm just looking for a place where I can upload an MP3 and embed the player on my site. I used to like Odeo for this, and then Odeo dropped the ability to upload. Then I started using iMeem, until iMeem was bought by MySpace and disappeared completely. Then, I discovered Houndbite, but it too has bit the dust.

Once more, I was on the hunt for the YouTube of audio. That's when I discovered SoundCloud. SoundCloud only gives you two hours of space for free, but it's exactly what I need to share old Blue Jays songs and Tom Cheek calls.

To demonstrate this new discovery, here's Lloyd Moseby's Shaker's Rap.

Here's hoping SoundCloud sticks around for a while. And if you liked the sample above, you'd love this page.

Humble and Fred's Fifth Podcast

PodcastBack on December 12, 2009, Humble and Fred recorded Humble and Fred's Fifth Podcast

Enjoy!

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 radio audio.

CBCWhen 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.

If you're looking for Toronto info, Metro Morning with Andy Barrie makes several segments available for download at http://www.cbc.ca/toronto/features/podcast/.

Pictures From Humble and Fred's 20th Anniversary Podcast of Memories

micI 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.

Odeo Stops Uploads, I Search For YouTube of Audio

podcastI'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
