Clever Amazon

First of all, I feel I should say that I was saddened as I know so many were at the news of the premature passing of Steve Jobs. If it wasn’t for him, it’s unlikely I would be producing the Yes Music Podcast.

R.I.P. Steve.

Amazon - we know what you're thinking... (click to enlarge)

I was also interested to note this week how clever Amazon are getting. Alongside new sci-fi technology from Apple – Siri, it seems that Amazon’s artificial intelligence is hitting the mark. Here’s what Amazon recommends I buy this week:

Seems to know something about me then…

Changes to email updates

What do you want in your email updates?

Hi everyone. I have just changed the Yes Music Podcast email updates.

If you have already signed up for updates via email, you will have been getting a message every time a new blog post or episode is posted.

For boring technical reasons, this was messing up the Yes Music Podcast listing in iTunes and only 3 episodes were showing up.

So, if you sign up now for the email updates, you will still get all blog posts and episodes. However, if you are already receiving emails, you will now only get the episodes. If you are OK with this, that’s fine by me. Otherwise, please sign up again using the email sign-up form on the right hand side of every page.

 

Sorry for the messing about!

Interviewed on School of Podcasting

I can't afford this kit...

I set up the Yes Music Podcast after taking part in Dave Jackson’s ‘Free Podcast Bootcamp’. Dave runs www.schoolofpodcasting.com and was kind enough to interview me recently about the Yes Music Podcast and how I had approached finding you – i.e. the audience.

Take a listen to the interview here.

I’d like to thank Dave for all his help and support – without him, you wouldn’t be reading this!

What Yes memorabilia do you have on your desk?

Pride of place on my desk goes to this fabulous item:

Yes mug 2003
What a mug!

It’s from the Birmingham ICC concert of the Full Circle Tour, 2003.

So, what’s on your desk?

The best thing about starting the Yes Music Podcast? – Yes Music Podcast

It’s all about you

(I've Seen) All Good People

It’s an easy question to answer. By far the best thing about starting the podcast is being able to connect with the people who have been kind enough to listen and comment.

It’s been an amazing experience to confirm to myself that there are people out there who, like me, are fascinated by the music of Yes – and who are prepared to listen to me talking about my passion for the music.

I have received a remarkable number of comments via the website, email and Twitter, considering I’ve only recorded one episode so far!

Thank you

So I’d like to say, “Thank you,” to everyone – you know who you are – you’re the best. Keep listening and I hope someone will be brave enough to record a message on the answerphone (details on the right) so I can play it on the show at some point. Go on – you know you want to hear yourself on the podcast!
