Every man and his dog has a podcast these days. I now have 3. Podcasts, not dogs.
But my latest one is perhaps a little more relatable than four nautical-themed characters prattling on about old timey things or two guys irritating Michael Caine…
David M. Green and Other Famous People!
It’s a collection of interviews, all of them featuring me and another famous person. The first two episodes are now available on iTunes for your downloading pleasure.
Episode 1 is my 2006 interview with Tony Martin. I’ve also managed to dig up an ID he recorded as John Howard, which I’d completely forgotten about and hasn’t seen the light of day since it first aired on the now non-existent Flinders University Student Radio.
Episode 2 is my first interview with Shaun Micallef. And I’ve also included the ID he recorded, which won me the 2007 South Australian Community Broadcasting Association “Bilby” Award for “Best Station ID” for some reason.
If you’re not a fan of iTunes (I’m certainly not), you can hear the episodes RIGHT HERE:
But hey, don’t think this’ll just be a junk yard for my 6-year-old Radio Adelaide interviews. I’m planning on recording some NEW interviews with NEW famous people. Stay tuned.
And if you’re wondering what ever happened to that podcast I was doing with Anthony McCormack – The Good Show – we’ve been struggling to find adequate studio facilities and nice people to let us record there for free. It looks like I’m going to have to bite the bullet and buy my own equipment so I won’t be faced with this problem again.
It’s quite ridiculous the history of trouble I’ve had with getting access to recording facilities.
SAFM said I could use their studios when I worked there in 2008, but they wouldn’t give me a computer login, so I could record but I couldn’t get the audio off the computers. Around the same time I was making sketches for 891 ABC Adelaide, but they wouldn’t let me record the sketches there, which were FOR THE ABC. Ridiculously, we had to use community radio facilities at Radio Adelaide, until Radio Adelaide found out we were recording non-Radio Adelaide things. They didn’t like that.
For a brief time when I was working at MTR, I had access to their fabulous studios. Until they shut down in March. Fun Fact: “Studio Pleasant” is now the SEN news booth.
I feel like Monet without a steady supply of canvases. Or Beethoven without his hearing.
So I guess I’m saying I’m Beethoven.
