Another Stick podcast?

Hello folks!

Got a tip that another podcaster will be doing a special episode about the Stick.The all bass content podcast is called Bass Cast and you can find them on the web at Myspace.

New url for our old site!

We have a new url for our original site:

Strada-Sphere Radio

We have a new look with the same content which includes the original Strada-Stream.Please bear with us as we migrate all of our content (interviews,reviews,etc.) over to the new site.

The old address was too long and confusing to remember!
Of course you may still visit this blog and our Myspace site to get any up to date news and the latest episodes as well.

Thanx!

Shane Carey to host next show/Contest thread at Stickist.com Forums

Alright folks!
I am proud to announce that Shane Carey will be producing and hosting the next episode of the Strada-Sphere Radio Podcast! I will be sending along the contest files to Shane in the next week or so and he will be producing the show for a Febuary release.

I have created a thread for the contest at
Stickist.com
and will soon be adding a poll where you will be able to cast your votes for the theme song contest winner.

Here is the thread post:


Strada-Sphere Radio Podcast Theme Song Contest Forum Thread


The contest episode will post in the 1st half of Febuary featuring all contest entries.Listen to the show then head on over to the thread to cast your vote.The poll will be open until the night before the announcement show is ready for download.We will open the show with the winning entry.Not even the winner will know the results of the contest untill the show!
Will I host the announcment show or will Shane? How about both of us? Well, we will have to wait and see.Hopefully I will have my new Mac by then and we could do a "Scype" show.
That's all for now.Thanx for stopping by and please visit to forum and leave any comments!

Take care!

Guest host?

Hello folks!

I wanted to share this e-mail with you all....

Hi Juan,

Sorry to hear about your Mac difficulties. I don't know how practical
it would be, with the contest going on and all that, but the offer still
stands to guest-host, or anything else I can do to help keep the
momentum going.
-shane


That was sent to me by Shane Carey,podcast host for the Nascent Music Podcast.

We are working out the details....

Stay tuned!

Podcast Delay



Due to technical difficulties (a dead Mac,to be exact!) the next Strada-Sphere Radio Podcast episode and the theme song contest winner announcement is on hold.My power Mac G4 needs an $800.00 logic board and I do not have that kind of cash at the moment.However,I weill be purchasing a new Mac instead of trying to fix my current tower.



So,what should I do about the contest? Should I go ahead and accept more song entries beyond the original Jan 31st deadline and do a "Welcome Back Mega Podcast Showcasing Every Theme Song Contest Entry I Recieve Untill I Get A New Mac Special Edition Of The Strada-Sphere Radio Podcast" and ask for your votes to pick a winner? Or,should I just stick to the original deadline of Jan 31st and cut off the contest then and call it done?Please let me know by posting comments at the Strada-Sphere Radio Myspace page or here on this blog.




Looking forward to hearing from all of you!




By the way,the next podcast will be an "enhanced podcast". Those of you who subscribe via the latest version of i-Tunes will be able to experience this version of the show.The "enhanced" version is sort of like watching a Flash movie as I will be adding "chapters" to the podcast which will contain pics,links,and additional extras accessible via i-Tunes.These "chapters" will correspond to the show's content and will add a unique twist to the podcast.You can experience the "enhanced" show in i-Tunes or on your i-Pod.Those of you not using i-Tunes will still be able to experinece the audio content.

Another show...

Hello Stickists!

Hope you all had a gread Christmas and that Santa Emmett left you all a brand new Stick!
I have been getting a few more submissions for the contest so I will do at least one more show before a winner is announced.I plan on doing it in the next week or two.In ight of this,I would like to set the deadline for submissions as the 31st of January,2007. I will announce a winner in the Febuary show so forget what I said in the last show (# 13)! You still have time to submit a 15-30 second tune.
Hit the woodshed and good luck!
And have a Happy New Year!

Merry Christmas and more...

Hello loyal listeners!

1st of all let me start off by wishing you a Merry Christmas!
2nd, I have created a LastFM a page for myself.For those of you who may not have heard of LastFM,it is an online community which allows other people in your "neighborhood" to see what you listen to via updated charts that report your listening habits.Other folks then listen to your picks,recommend music,artists,and so on.As you may have already guessed,there is a lot of Stick music on my charts!In fact,I have been listening to my i-Pod's "Stickists" play list pretty much all day and reporting it to Last FM via my media player (in this case,Amarok running on Linux).I encourage you to sign up and tune in!

Happy Holidays!

Hello Stickists,listeners,and curious folk from all planets...

First of all,a Happy Holiday season to all.I hope that the season finds everyone in good health and high spirits.
As you can imagine,the holidays can be very busy for all of us.I am no exception!So,the next episode may not be up untill....? I have been recieveing entries for the theme song and will continue to accept them (see last post).I still plan on announcing a winner by Jan/Feb of 2007. Manny from Stickist.com has offered a Stickist logo cap and Steve Adelson has offered his forthcoming CD as well. I'll see if I can rustle up some other goodies as well.
So,the next show may be a while so please sit tight.In the meantime,take time to call an old friend,visit a loney soul in a nursing home,help feed the homeless at a local shelter for the holidays,make amends with those who have hurt you (or whom you have hurt).And in the words of Bill and Ted's mentor and super cool future dude Rufus:

"Be Excellent to each other!"

Strada-Sphere Radio Intro Song Contest!!!

Alright folks,seems to be some interest for the theme song contest I have been kicking around and mentioned in the last post.So,let's do it!
So far,Manny Tau,super web guru at Stickist.com,has already said he would donate a Stickist.com hat to the Prize Wagon.So,we have that and hopefully more folks will get on board.


Here are the rules...

1. Must be at least 15 seconds but no more than 30 seconds in leangth.

2. Must be Stick based (duh!) and can either be intrumental or vocal,solo or ensemble.

3. Must be your own original work.

4. Must be in MP3 format

5. Only 1 submission per Stickist,please. <------Scratch that!The more the merrier!

6. Must be submitted by December 31st,2006 to:


stradasphereradio@gmail.com

I will play all submissions on the 1 year anniversary show in Feb of 2007 where I will announce the winner. I am thinking about asking those folks who have donated prizes to help in picking the winner.

The winner will recieve (this list may grow!):

A Stickist.com hat donated by Manny Tau of Stickist.com

Steve Adelson e-mailed me and told me that he would send me his next CD that should be done by the end of November.So that will probably end up in the prize wagon.

Your song played as the intro for a years worth of the Strada-Sphere Radio podcast (from Feb 2007-Feb 2008).

Recognition and pride for serving the Stickist community and spreading the word about the Chapman Stick!

So,what do ya think? I am open to suggestions.Please post comments here or e-mail them to

stradasphereradio@gmail.com

Thanx and good luck!

Where are the shows?

Hello listeners!

I must apologize for the long overdue podcast episodes.I have been having some problems with my audio gear for recording the show.I am having a heck of a time exporting the show as an mp3 from Garageband into i-Tunes.This is usually a very simple process but for some reasons the gremlins must really have it out for me this time!There is a 1 hour show in the can and it awaits it's transition to the proper format.I actually recorded it the week of 08/04/06!I may need to re-record the show but I hope it does not come to that.In addition to this,I am slowly making the move over to Linux.


So please accept my apology! I hate that this is happening as I really love doing the show.
Thanx for your patience,loyalty,and for hanging in there!

Strada-Sphere Radio Show #010.The 10/12th Show!!!


Strada-Sphere Radio Show #010




Yeah,I know I say the show is for July 2006 even though I posted it in June,but...

Strada-Sphere Radio has made it to it's 10th English Podcast! 12th total including the Spanish shows! Therefore....

It's the 10/12th Show Anniversary!

I just want to thank all of you for your support and input.I really enjoy doing the show and value your opinions.

To all of the Stickists, their bands,labels,projects,and sites.I can't say a big enough "thank you". Your contributions to the podcast have been kind and generous.Without you,there would be no show!

Manny Tau,thank you for helping me out when I first got the Strada-Sphere Radio site going and for being my 1st interview.I have enjoyed the relationship with the Stickist community and with you in particular.

Don Schiff,thank you for the advice on recording.I also want to thank you for one of the funniest and insightful interviews that I have had a pleasure of doing (and the "phone in").Get down to Orlando and we'll paint the town caffeine...

Irene Orleansky,you have become a great friend of the show! I am grateful for the wonderful music and interview.I appreciate the support that you have given the show and myself.

To the folks at Soundclick.com and the Stickist community that thrives there. You provided the imputes in the form of a "Stick Stream" that would inspire me to take the site content to the next level.

Zak Winnik and Shane Carey. I enjoy your shows so much! Our little friendly competition can only fuel us into bringing our listeners the best in Stick podcasting!

The listeners! Your support and emails make the task of researching,producing,mixing,mastering,uploading,compiling,code writing,etc., all worth it!

And of course Emmett and Yuta Chapman. You both have been so ultra supportive of what I do.Your advice on the show,my own musical endeavors,Stick maintenance,and Emmett's quirky and insightful e-mails make me glad that I decided to pick up this wonderful instrument.It's more than a technique,I have gained many a friend.

Now,download the shows!

Strada-Sphere Radio Show #008.5 "The Gig Show"


Strada-Sphere Radio #008.5 for June 05,2006. "The Gig Show".





Thoughts on Performing...


Hello folks!This is not a typical Strada-Sphere Radio show.I just wanted to express my thoughts and feelings concerning my recent solo Stick performance debut this past June 1st.


Here are some of the topics I discuss:


Some points that Emmett brought up concerning live performance in an e-mail correspondence.


The gear that I used.


A letter from a listener and participator of Strada-Sphere Radio.


The music in the background is entitled "Yoeme". It is the very 1st piece I recorded on the Stick about a month after I got it back in 2002.Very minimal and extremely experimental!


This past performance had a very positive impact on me,almost "spiritual" without trying to be too corny.It is for this reason that I felt compelled to share this with the Stick community.Your support of this podcast is the sword drawn from the stone,powerful and inspiring.I need to sharpen and care for it as it is now a community shaped show.I am not the only participant!


A very heartfelt "Thank you" to Emmett for his words of encouragement concerning the gig and this podcast.

Strada-Sphere Radio Podcast #007 for May 2006





Show #007 is finally up! And it is long overdue,too be sure.Been way busy as of late as I have a few projects going on.One of which is a new endeavor which I hope will take off.I have started to craft Native American Flutes.You can see some pics and read about my progress at Ollin Flutes.
There is a glitch at about 29:05 into the show.A unfortunate inclusion due to my not proofing the show as I usually do.The cut off word was "Brazil". What I had said was that Andreas Guenther is from Brasil.My appologies to Mr. Guenther and our fellow Brasilianos who have tuned in.
Enjoy the show!

Song(s) you would like to have played and where we can download them OR send an MP3.The music does not have to feature the Stick as a solo instrument,but it does have to be present in the mix.

Your personal statement allowing me to use your material for our podcast and nothing more.This is very important!You must include all of the above info if you want your music played.

I will not profit from this podcast. It is presented as an entertainment and informational show to further advance and promote the Chapman Stick,Stick music, and Stickists.

As soon as we get enough material for at least a 45 min show,I will put the material together,find an RSS server, and post it! the whole world will hear your mastery of the Stick,babes will come a knockin',the $$$ will rain on you like a tsunami, and we can all retire in the Bahamas (O.K, maybe not but people will hear you...)
Let me know and spread the world. It will take time to get this going but I believe that with your help it will be well worth the effort.
Thanx!
