Filed Under (for the sake of the song, music, podcast) by Sean on March-12-2007

On March 10, I played at a benefit bonspiel for the Minesing Swamp Unplugged Festival. While I was there I recorded a few episodes of my new podcast: For the Sake of the Song: Conversations with Song. I also learned podcasting hard lesson #1. A little ambient noise is OK in a live recording, but recording live shows 30 feet from the refrigeration room of a curling rink is not OK. There is a lot of hum in the recording, but it was great to talk with Steve. I had not seen him perform in over 6 years.

Sean I loved the first show! I was on a plane late last night when I listened and it really hit on my mood! Your Song took me back to the time during the power outage. I felt in that place at that time and it was kinda nice to get out of the plane! Keep up the great work and I look forward to hearing the next show!
