HiUP #04 – Sweets and Sounds

Wednesday, March 16th, 2005

Show number four, featuring two songs by local artists, and a pair of interviews with local folks selling sweets. I also touch on a few local news stories, and chat with Jen about TV shows filming in Hawaii. I actually ran out of time and steam putting this one together, but that just means more stuff ready to go for show number five!

In this show:

  • 00:30 HawaiiUP Menu
  • 01:10 HawaiiUP Headlines: Mayor Mufi, Weather, FlyHawaii
  • 06:25 “Secret Fantasy” by Jordan Segundo
  • 10:10 Mililani Farmer’s Market

HiUP #03 – Breakthrough

Wednesday, March 9th, 2005

Show number three, this one including our first podcast-savvy local musician. More great artists to come, too. This one’s got everything, from music to news, from kids to food, the wife returns with more on movies, and I take you to the beach.

Actually, the wind was pretty bad, so the beach is almost indistinguishable from static, but if you close your eyes and imagine real hard, I’m sure you can still feel the sand at your feet and the seaspray in your hair.

In this show:

  • 00:15 HawaiiUP Aloha
  • 01:25 HawaiiUP Headlines: Around Hawaii, Around The House
  • 07:25 Hawaiian Music and Podcasting
  • 10:00 “Island Days” by Pali from In Harmony
  • 14:12 Dim Sum at Good Luck Chinese Restaurant
  • 20:00 Pith of Pop: Podcast Edition
  • 23:40 Blank Audio Postcard: Magic Island
  • 26:00 Inevitable Podcasting Talk

HiUP #01 – Imua

Wednesday, March 2nd, 2005

My first actual “show,” featuring two songs from Magnatune and a basic introduction to me and my ideas for HawaiiUP.

Thanks to a comment I got on my test run last week, I encoded at 64k (instead of 128k) to save space. The compression did create some artifacts, but I guess that’s par for the course. I’m still editing entirely in Audacity, but I switched out the crappy Radio Shack mic for an old powered Sony mic I had from my sappy, high-school mix-tape days.

I think the show didn’t turn out half bad, apart from the fact that I still sound like I’m holding my nose. If you can’t take my voice for extended periods of time, just jump to the music. It’s really quite good.

Track List:

  • “Om Asatoma Sad Gamaya” from “Silver” by Beth Quist
  • “Jade” from “Now and Zen” by Norine Braun

HawaiiUP – Testing, Testing

Wednesday, February 23rd, 2005

Podcasting

A trial run of podcasting using crappy equipment (a $10 mic from Radio Shack plugged into the stock sound card in my two-year-old Dell) and free software (Audacity for Windows). Added the ‘album art’ to the MP3 file through iTunes. And WordPress 1.5 helpfully handled the upload and feed wrapping.

This five-minute experiment was cobbled together late one Wednesday night after my family went to bed. I expect future shows will feature a lot of whispering.

First thoughts? I need to practice speaking (I dabbled in radio before, honest). And clearly, white noise is going to be a problem. A better mic would help, but PC noise is hard to hide. Also, featuring music would be great, but licensing is a big issue. This podcast just uses music by people I know, more to test crossfading than anything else, but if I do this, I guess I’ll have to get to know some of the podcast-friendly music libraries out there. Finally, I don’ t think a five-minute podcast should make a 4MB file. I need to get up to speed on bitrates and compression.
