Irish, Celtic, Folk and Acoustic Podcasts

Now that I’m back in the world of the working iPod I’ve been going through podcasts almost as fast as gas money. Here are a couple of my favorites thus far.

Irish & Celtic Music PodcastMarc Gunn’s Irish & Celtic Music Podcast has some of the best Irish and Celtic music I’ve heard. Ranging from the very traditional right up to edgy punk-fusion all the music is high quality Irish and Celtic music. Marc manages to get two or three podcasts out a month and is always great about giving artist and album information. Get it at iTunes.

TransAtlantic Acoustic ShowTransAtlantic Acoustic Show highlights a larger variety of modern acoustic music. Hosts jill no jack of the US and Sam Salter of the UK offer great info and background on the artists. Sam can be a little hard to understand (because of his voice, not his accent) but it’s nothing a little extra volume won’t fix. These come out almost every week. Get it at iTunes.

Both of these podcasts are free, and remember you don’t need an iPod to enjoy podcasts!

I’m going to start keeping a list of my favorite podcasts in my links in my sidebar, so as I find more good podcasts I’ll post them there.

Cube Farm – The Song

Cube FarmFor those who slave away in a cube farm, this song’s for you.

My Cubicle
Lyrics by: Morning Sidekick
Performed by: Jym Britton
Parody on You’re Beautiful by James Blunt

My Cubicle
My cubicle
It’s One of Sixtytwo
It’s small space
In a crowded place
Just a six-by-six foot booth
And I hate it that’s the truth

Thanks to my former cubemate Dee for sending the song to me.

The Pope Gets an iPod!

Engadget reported yesterday:

The Pope just got his very own iPod nano, engraved with: “To His Holiness, Benedict XVI”.

How hip can you get! Read the full article here.

What color did he get? White, of course.

Wonder if he has “Stairway to Heaven” on that thing…

Pink Floyd: Pulse on DVD

Finally on DVD and ready for preorder on Amazon, the video of Pink Floyd’s final concert tour, “Pulse”. I wrote about this before, but at that time it was not available to pre-order at most sites. Due for release on December 6th, this is certainly a must-have for the Floyd fan on your Christmas list.

Here’s the rumored track list and extras. This was a fantastic concert and my VHS is long overdue for replacement. The DVD extras and Dolby Digital soundtrack are just icing on the cake.

Echoes from the Past: Pulse on DVD

PULSEPink Floyd “Pulse” tour soon to be available on DVD!

Arguably the greatest live rock performance ever (though you won’t get any argument from me), Pink Floyd’s final tour has been available on VHS since 1995. According to a article it will be available on DVD this December.

Scheduled for North American release on December 6, I’m afraid I won’t be waiting until Christmas for this one.

This is not yet listed on Amazon for pre-order, but I’ll keep an eye on it and post an update here when it is available.
