Show #152: Kiefer Jones and David Lee


It’s Always a treat to introduce new talent to the audience at large, and we’ve done a lot of it here.  Some of these names have gone on to make waves, some of them disappeared shortly after appearing on Indy In-Tune.  I don’t take any credit for either of those.  Kiefer and David from this week’s show have a really neat sound to them, which I would be tempted to generalize as John Mayer meets Eminem, except that this would also show how, while I consider myself on a expert in the music of the seven-county area, I know almost nothing about current music outside of Indianapolis.  In fact, have I ever even heard a John Mayer album?  Or am I only familiar with his music from people covering it on open mic night?

That said, I really do like what these guys are putting out.  Good, solid songwriting and lyrics, with a bit of edginess.  If we can get some production behind them (come on Azmyth), then I think they might be on to something, assuming they can find a venue to call home.  The other problem with doing something just a bit different is that you tend to be real lonely.

Show #151: The Chris Brake Show


I discovered podcasts back in late 2004/early 2005, as near as I can remember.  The first ones were tech news mostly.  TWIT, Morning Coffee Notes, Geek News Central, etc.  I quickly expanding my listening to include “subculture” stuff like Evil Genius Chronicles, Random Signal, Geek Fu Action Grip, and the RU Sirius Show, along with geeky faire like Wingin’ It, Slice of SciFi.  Music stuff came in the third wave, mostly because I was so overloaded with talk podcasts.  It wasn’t until I got my first iRiver, featuring double-speed play, that I was able to free up enough time to add in music shows as well.

The point being, when I first got into podcasting, my heart always lay in the free-form banter shows like Chris Brakes, and up until now, I’d never gotten to do one.   Okay, there is a pilot for “Dinner with Geeks” (my infamous GeekLabel meets Dinner for Five concept … that I will get back to one day) out there that pre-dates Indy In-Tune by about a month, and I made a couple of appearances on the Free Beer Express, though they were topical shows.  This is the first one where we just turn on a mic and see what happens.

Naturally, this leads to the next set of issues.  I have had some tough edit jobs, and I have had some long edit jobs.  I think this one wins on both counts.  The original raw file for this clocked in a just over three hours, as it was taken from the radio feed from that Saturday night radio broadcast.  I then had the unenviable task of whittling down 200 minutes, down to 60.  That process began back on January 17, and was just finished about an hour ago.  In the end, after playing through the file and only managing to trim out 10 or 15 minutes each time, I finally decided to completely scrap the whole thing, start with a blank file, and just paste bits into it until I had 60 minutes.  Believe me, I have every minute of that evening committed to memory, and I’m not convinced these were the best 60, however they were the first 60 that I could easily isolate and cut over. 

In all, it probably wasn’t my funniest night on the air, but it was still a lot of fun.  Enough so that you will now be hearing new episodes of the Chris Brake Show (without me … or at least with me relegated down to a five minute spot) three times a week on Indy In-Tune.  Check the page for exact times and they’re bound to move around while we find their sweet spot.

Listening Party 01: The Grinning Man - Watch Where You Point That Thing


Here is a bit of an experiment I’ve always wanted to try:  A CD listening party live on the air.  It’s a bit of a different animal from a podcast in that it would be focused mostly on music, and less about the interview, there would be no opportunity to edit, and it would be in a strict one-hour timebox instead of the usual practice of recording 75-90 minutes and taking the best 60 as a show.

So that is what you are getting with this download, with the exception of the last few seconds (which were clipped together from the initial signoff and then a second signoff 30 minutes later), this represent the original listening party exactly as it aired on July 10, 2013, wherein we debuted the The Grinning Man’s latest release, “Whatch Where You Point That Thing,” in its entirety.
