I was bemoaning my lack of time to do good travel mixes a couple of months ago so I did something about it. I spent some time and put together song lists for an all covers disk, an all instrumental disk and an all local music disk that quickly became 2 disks without repeating bands. I actually cut the 2 local music disks and like them a lot. A whole lot. Enough that I thought - man, I should blogcast this stuff!

So I picked up a cheap microphone at Radio Shack and put together a couple of half hour NC local music blogcasts that I was pretty pleased with and went to post them when I realized that I have nowhere near enough space through Earthlink to post 55+ MB of data. I'd been thinking about getting a hosting service for some time for my photography site and for Jennyslash's art site, so that may be a solution.

So I've got a couple of questions for you guys - any interest in a weekly series of NC local music blogcasts? And any suggestions on a hosting solution? I'm looking seriously at iPower but I haven't decided. Input is most welcome!

While you're waiting for the blogcast, check out NC History Dot Com - don't know who's running it but there's a lot of good info on NC bands, particularly more recent stuff.

I host my audio at File-size limit is 25M, which is a bit of a hindrance for the type of format you envision, but # of uploads is unlimited. Also? It's free.

Though I know zip about podcasting, I would attempt to learn how to listen to one JUST FOR THIS. I also know a gal through my, uh, vampire porn contacts who just recently left Durham and would love this, I bet. So you have at least some audience!
