More Radio, Ikea Podcast

By JoCo July 8, 2005

As mentioned in my last post, Ikea will be the Net Unknown song on this week’s Net Music Countdown show, which as near as I can figure airs tonight sometime on some radio stations. I can’t for the life of me figure out where or when, so I don’t even know what the point of this post is. The only people who will be able to listen are the people who know when and where to tune in because they already listen anyway. I do know that it’s somewhere on both Sirius and XM. If anyone finds it, let me know.

In podcasting news, John of the Ongline Podcast recently contacted me asking for permission to use the Ikea song in a soundseeing podcast of a visit to an actual Ikea store. The audio sounds great. I honestly found it a little stressful to listen to – I think it was the general shopping noise, plus that I’m-having-fun-but-just-barely-holding-it-together conversational tone you only get when people are picking out furniture together. Or maybe I’m projecting. Anyway, it’s a good example of this new Enhanced Podcast that you can do with an AAC file and iTunes 4.9 – you can create bookmarks and embed images and links along with the audio, which is pretty interesting. It must be nice to have your own proprietary format.
