TomCast 018: Back, but not back to normal

I’m still having major difficulties with my internet connection, but at least this week I do have one.  Currently I’m running at 1Mb/s download speeds which means it take about 20 minutes to download an album.  A painful experience.

Also, I’ve had a fairly hectic and entertaining weekend and I’m feeling a tad fragile today so I’ve made an easy show, just 7 tracks back to back and a round up at the end.

No TomCast This Week

Hello again folks.

Just a quick note to say that sadly there will not be a new episode of TomCast this week.

Further internet issues have meant I’ve been unable to get any new music, and various commitments over the weekend mean I don’t have time to record.

Hopefully I’ll be back on track next week, although I have no idea when my internet will be fixed. This saddens me.

Thanks for trying to listen.

TomCast 017: Better Late Than Never

Getting this week’s podcast sorted has caused some issues. My internet died on the day I’d set aside for research and recording so I couldn’t do that at home.  Instead, I bundled my iMac, mic and other peripherals in my car and headed to my parent’s house, only to find that their internet is down as well.

Not one to let trivial things like this get in the way I’ve recorded a show with music that I already had on my computer. As I write this on the WordPress app, I’m dreading the process of uploading the podcast and artwork via 3G on my phone.  Hopefully it makes its way to your ears. I’ll make sure the tracklist is up to date as soon as I can.

TomCast 015: Catching up with Latest Releases

This week I’ve been struggling with some internet troubles and an ISP with no interest in helping me fix them.  Nevertheless, I did manage to procure some new tunes whilst perusing the latest releases from some of my favourite web based music sources.

Sadly, not having an internet connection at all when I came to record the show, I couldn’t do any detailed research about the artists so info is a bit scarce.

I did add a backing track when I’m speaking to make up for it though.

TomCast 014: Something With A Bit Of Swing

This week’s podcast concentrates on music with a swing sound and influence, I’ve got various different swing related grooves for you that will make your feet tap and your head bob.  Maybe with some full on dancing too!

Quick side note because I’ve had a good week for various reasons.  The first is that I’ve now got a proper microphone  so the quality of my voice recording is now much better!  Woop!

Also, I had this week off work so I spent some time designing some new artwork for TomCast (now you don’t have to put up with my speaker cone infested face!).  I’m not much of a designer though, and there’s no way I could produce a vectored cassette tape.  Of course, the internet solved the problem, so I would like to thank Antoniu over at his webpage Fuzzimo, he does loads of graphic design stuff and puts it out there for people to use, you should check it out!

TomCast 010: Recap

Slightly different format today.  I thought that as this podcast pushes me into double figures, I’d have a recap of some of the music I’ve already played.

Today’s episode contains different tracks from artists I’ve already played.  One artist from each previous podcast.
