Jamendo on the iPhone / iPod Touch

Here's something I can't wait to try out.

As many of you know I get most of my music from Jamendo.com - a great resource for free, legal music. Anyway, they've got an application in the Apple App Store; I would try it right this minute, except that I only have an ipod Touch with no wireless connection.

So either it'll wait until I get home, or until I get my hands on an iphone.

Malajube

I've been conspiciously absent from my blog! With good reason, though; I'm not only working on the next podcast (I'd better hurry and finish - it's due out this Saturday...), but I'm busy with my real job that actually pays the bills.

Anyway, I just wanted to tell everyone about Malajube. They're a French Canadian band that puts out some really awesome music (in French), and they've got a couple of songs available for download over at Jamendo.com. Now unfortunately, their creative commons license doesn't allow for derivitave works - which means that I can't play them in the podcast.

This really sucks, because I like the music a lot. I'm going to try contacting them and see if they'll make an exception. Until then, check out Malajube!

#5 - Vacation Part 2!

Surprisingly, I've got this podcast completed on time! That's pretty amazing for me, lately. There are lots of good tracks in this podcast. None of them are new artists to Alternative Airwaves, but they are tracks that I haven't played yet.

Unfortunately, I still don't have any pictures to give you from my vacationing. Those will have to come in a separate blog post, but I will be getting some of them this weekend (a long weekend for most Canadians).
