For the last couple of weeks I have been working to turn Bill Smedley's Old Time Music Hour into a podcast, this is to run concurrently with Colm Daly's excellent Padlet page. Colm's page will continue to be updated weekly and contains the archive of all previous shows. I have started the podcast with show #143 and will also update weekly. I am hoping that distributing Bill's show as a podcast will help to increase the audience of The Old Time Music Hour as this platform offer's the perfect way to listen both on and off-line and podcast's are fast becoming the next big thing :)
As it takes some time to get listed on podcast directories the best way for immediate access is to enter the RSS feed into the podcast player of your choice. If you have no idea what I am talking about Podcasts? RSS? then it's no problem because I have set up a web page for you so that you can play Bill's show from there.
If you have not yet listened to The Old Time Music Hour, give it a try as it really is a great show for all Old time music fans.
