The Podcast Star Song
Back in the early days of podcasting (2004 – 2006) things were much different. Since there were so few podcasters around the community was much closer, and almost everyone seemed to know each other.
One of the more popular shows at the time was “This And That” produced by Jeff Oestreich.
In 2005 Jeff produced the song “Podcast Star” which became an over night hit in the podcast community. I do have to admit that the community was so small that it may not of been that hard to become a hit.
Some of the podcasts he names in the song are no longer being produced, and some of the produces of the podcasts are now in the Academy Of Podcaster Hall Of Fame.
Podcast Star was very clever, and Jeff did a great job producing this song.
The reason for this post is to share this song with all the new podcasters that have not heard the song, and to make sure it has its place in the History Of Podcasting.
The following information as taken from Jeff's site.
“This song was recorded for our podcast This And That. Adam Curry, playing this song on his very popular podcast, The Daily Sourcecode said “Wow, does that rock!!” Pretty cool from an ex VH1 jock.
This song was also featured on an episode of another very popular podcast The Dawn And Drew Show.
Podcast Star is a tongue-and-cheek look at wanting to achieve stardom through this new production medium. I tracked all the instruments and put the song together in about a week. Instruments include electric guitars, electric bass and drums. The drums were played ‘live' on my Yamaha Motif keyboard.
Hope you like it!”
