From the Producer
I began the Ed's Mixed Bag podcast on Oct. 6, 2005. By that time I had already been bored to death by terrestial radio except for one program produced by NPR radio called, "This American Life." The in-depth and real audio heard in these productions was unlike anything else on the airwaves and served as my inspiration that an radio production could be worth listening to! In addition, I had always, from my youth, messed around with analog music mixes on reel to reel tape machines and later on with cassette tapes. In the late summer of 2005, podcasting came to my attention, and as they say, the rest is history.
The Ed's Mixed Bag podcast get's its name from the idea that one show can contain many genres of music. It began like that and then evolved to also contain different contests and featured segments. With a new show produced weekly, I soon thought up a handy slogan followed thereafter by a 2nd slogan. The first one is, "Remember...If It's Saturday, It's Ed's Mixed Bag!" The second one is, "The Podcast That's Out of This World!" (inspired by my Dad's first and last flight aboard a 747 commercial jet aircraft). The graphic logo you see on this page is my own creation using Microsoft's "Word Art" feature in the WORD program. The street sign with the podcast's URL, was generated by an open source software program available on-line. With my background in photography, graphics, and audio-visual technical work, and with an assist from my musician-nephew, taking me from the analog world to the world of digital audio, podcasting became a natural fit for me. I taught myself basic html coding and let Libsyn (initially) handle the web hosting, rather than taking a course in XML Programming 101!
Being six years later, the show is now produced twice monthly. Ed's Mixed Bag can be heard, downloaded, or subscribed to at Mevio (http://www.edsmixedbag.mevio.com). The one-click subscribe iTunes button is there and the show is also listed in the iTunes Music Store in the Podcast category. To all in the podisphere community who have helped out in many different ways to date, (they know who they are), THANKS!
