HCI Radio: Festivus!

Happy Halloween! A special episode is out today, highlighting the buried, unsigned (!) treasures at

The show is twice the length of normal, clocking in at 59 minutes.

So, iPodder + Dial-up = suicide. That said, I've decided to NOT sacrifice the audio quality that these songs deserve. All shows from today forward will be encoded at 128k/Stereo, so you're looking at an average file size of 35MB (except for this beast which is about 55MB.) If we podcasters want to take over the world (that IS the plan, right?) and compete with crappy Radio, we need to sound excellent. That's my goal.

Enjoy today's show! It was a thrill to make, and it only represents a miniscule percentage of the quality bands out there.

As always, thanks for listening!


  • Did you say ? I didn't catch it, no matter how many times i rewound (can't do THAT on radio!)... and its not in your blog.

    You have great taste in music, this is so refreshing, so much music I've never heard, this is the first time I've felt like buying a CD since ... well 2 years or so.

  • Bummer. Well it appears that unless I can find a place to d/l your show, my listening days of your show are over. Your 1/2hr shows took alittle over 1hr to d/l which I thought was acceptable. Doubling that is not.

    If the job situation improves then I'll come back with high speed, until then best of success to you.

  • Hi, I've enjoyed visiting your blog. I am trying to get my creative zen mp3 players site up and running. At the moment I am concentrating on the Zen Touch and Zen Sleek. Sadly, the Zen micro does not appear to still be available from Creative.

    I've certainly got some way to go before that site meets the standards of your blog.

  • skype com

    Hi, great blog by the way - didn't think you'd mind me posting this anonymously - as you do allow anonymous posts ;-).

    Anyone tried this Skype program yet for free telephone calls over the internet? A guy at work uses it all the time and because he signed all his friends and relatives up he saves a fortune on his calls. Might be worth a go.

    Good luck with the blog
