Well, They’re More Like Guidelines Anyway…

I just made the conscious decision to go against my first guideline that I set in my previous post, and decided to (re)start a new podcast.

This one comes with a slight caveat however…

So, about fourteen years ago I started a podcast called the StickWorld Podcast, which was dedicated to the music of the Chapman Stick, of which I am also a player.

It was a pretty big deal at the time, as there was only one other podcast playing Stick music, but it wasn’t doing it full time. My podcast was so popular, it actually made the iTunes New and Noteworthy list for Performing Arts and was pulling down 500-750 downloads an episode (back in 2004 that was huge).

Long story short, as part of my plan (that I didn’t disclose in the previous post because thought about it after I wrote it) I want to start playing the Stick again.

I figured if I was going to do that, why not start the podcast back up and contribute to the community. The other podcast no longer records, and there are a couple of other shows that only interview Stick players on occasion, but again, there is no dedicated show that strictly plays Stick music.

Anyway, I’d like to introduce to you the StickWorld Podcast. I haven’t had the chance to record new shows yet, but I did post the last show that I recorded, which was the last attempt that I made to bring back the show in 2015, just to get the show listed in iTunes (which only took 20 minutes from the time of submission!).

Also, I’ll be posting links and stuff to my music as I get things recorded. There might be some YouTube videos thrown in as well.
