Technical Difficulties Part II

So I've been having difficulty uploading the shows to again and am looking for a suitable substitute until I can figure things out. Any suggestions are welcome. My sincere apologies to anyone waiting on a new show or three (all two of you, I know you're out there).

In the meantime, Toni Halliday of Curve has a new project called Chatelaine and you can stream the entire album on their website here. It is, predictably, amazing. It's good to hear Toni's voice again.

Upload Issues

So, a problem I've encountered over the last month is an inexplicable inability to upload the podcast properly to, who graciously host each episode. Uploading from the KISU station computer seems to work fine while my work and home computers upload only blank space. The punchline of all this is that the podcasts will probably have to be posted on Sundays rather than Thursdays. I don't know if that actually effects anyone, but I thought I'd mention it.

In the meantime, here's one of my favorite songs, "Mercy Seat" by Ultra Vivid Scene:
