#70 - Summer's Here?

Summer seems to have suddenly switched on!  At least, that's the case in Ottawa.  In today's slightly shorter episode, I've picked some "classic" songs and some newer songs, and also was completely unaware of the technical glitches at the start of the podcast.  No solid topics of conversation in the show, just lots of great music.  If you're an App developer, you have until June 9th to submit something to the Jamendo App Contest.


To listen, download from Archive.orgiTunes, or Stitcher.  Please note I am aware of the technical issues downloading the podcast from iTunes; if you have an iOS device, you should be able to download from the Podcasts app without problem.  Or just get Stitcher - it's pretty great.

#67 - Brad Sucks Remix Show

I didn't have anything prepared, so I went and downloaded a bunch of remixes from ccmixter.org.  Actually, I used the new "dig.ccmixter" tool that they just launched.  Check it out here.

I couldn't find exact links to the tracks that I found, but view the search results here - I've copied the titles of all of the songs I used, so it should be fairly easy to find them!  I only went a few pages in.


  1. Making Me Nervous - The Furious Remix - wellman
  2. Ain't Fixin' My Brain - copperhead
  3. Sick As A Dog - Straight Out The Hood Mix - J. Lang
  4. Plastic Surgery (ft. Brad Sucks, Robert Siekawitch) - copperhead

Back with a new show this week!  I scoured the Internet for new releases, and had to stretch a bit for what I considered to be "2013" new releases.  What I found were some pretty great tracks, and if it wasn't technically a new release, it's a bit of a preview of what is to come this year.  Going by the tracks I picked, it looks like we're going to have another great year of Creative Commons-licensed music!
