Dancechapel goes exclusively Podcast

After 18 years of doing The Dance Chapel on 89.7 FM WOCR, I’m ready to try something a little different.

First off I’d like to make it clear that this is just a selfish decision on my part, and not prompted by WOCR at all.

They are very supportive of The Dance Chapel and I have an open invitation to come back anytime!  I’ve loved working there and will miss it :-)

I just have a variety of reasons why it’s challenging for me to do on Friday nights.  I miss spending time with my family, and I don’t find driving a long distance through blizzards at this time of year appealing.  My day job at a TV station can be really crazy on Fridays and make it very challenging and stressful to make it to the radio show on time.

There’s a whole list of pros and cons, but I’ve been thinking about it for quite some time and have finally made a decision that I think is the best for me.

I’ve been doing this for a little while and I feel like I’ve accomplished some things over the years.  Now I’m less concerned with being a “professional” and I primarily do it as a fun hobby to share music I love with others.  With the advances in technology and changes in the music industry I can do that from my own home!  It’s a little less magical, but a lot more practical.

The biggest downside is it definitely wont be as frequent as a weekly show.

  1. This sounds right up your alley! More time with the family and more time to prep the shows. I got really excited when you started posting more of your shows to the Internet this way since I wasn’t anywhere local to tune in via radio. You’re right that the “Intertubes” and technology has a lot to offer and I think this is a step in a great direction!

    I look forward to the new “online” dance chapel and keep up the great work!!!

  2. You could always go for the uncompressed MP3 or AAC format (I think FLAC is also the format too) that is essentially the “raw” format that offers the most sound quality for the audiophiles.

    For the “average joes” like me, a standard 192kb VBR MP3 sounds great.

    Just some thoughts. Keep up the great work!

  3. Wiki wiki. More fam time is good. Glad your still doing the show. Ps I miss the old tasty boards. Just got a mix track pro. No reason not to send a mix now.

    1. Thanks Tom, great to hear from you! Unfortunately I haven’t been doing a very good job with keeping podcast regular, but I haven’t thrown in the towel yet either :-)
