This Week, I thought I would do an End of year Round-up of For the Sake of the Song and replay some of the great music I’ve featured this year. It was tricky picking just 12 or 13 songs. Since March, I have recorded 45+ episodes of For the Sake of the Song. If each song had 3 or 4 songs, thats over 120 songs to choose from. This is episode 37, so you can see from above that I already have a number of shows ready for 2008. Upcoming guests include John Lunman, Peter Judd , The Undesirables, Trout Fishing in America, Mark Blevis, Manitoba Hal, Pork Belly Futures and Chris Yale.

I have also continued to be a regular contributor to the Librivox Community Podcast and have started a podcast for Podcamp Toronto. In 2007, I produced about 60 podcast episodes, and I’m not sure how many chapters and poems for Librivox.

I can’t be at PodCamp Boston 2 this weekend.  Woe is me.  But I can participate through the magic of the Internets.  I’ve been watching some of the sessions on and participating in the conversation on twitter and on Bill Dey’s chatroom.  I’m also preparing periodic special reports live from Podcamp Boston.  If you are at podcamp and you’d like to give me a brief update, skype ductapeguy.

Here is my first special report from Bob Goyetche of the Bob and AJ Show, Podcasters Across Borders, and the Canadian Podcast Buffet.

At Podcamp Toronto, I hung out a bit with Doc Wu. He had a wealth of knowledge about podcasting, a great sense of humour, and a never ending bag of the neatest recording gear. This week, I am the featured artist on the Buffalo Live! Music Podcast with Doc Wu. He interviewed me about my performance and my music. A good portion of our discussion concerned Librivox. He certainly puts in a good word for me and Librivox on the podcast (not to mention playing a whole whack of my music Smile ) .
