Podcast Ping Bonus 3 - Ghosts

This episode complements The Halloween episode; it's an episode with the theme of ghosts.


If you notice I've added some buttons to the podcast page at http://podcastping.blogspot.com to make it easier to subscribe. I've also put a link which allows one to subscribe by e-mail; each time a new episode comes out an e-mail is sent to your inbox. This service is offered through Feedburner and I don't have any control of it so if you have a problem you'll have to deal with them about it, but I've tested it and it works.

I've also added a player from Podcast Pickle to allow you to play the podcasts right from the webpage.

Addendum: You can see the pumpkin I carved this year and those I carved in previous years at http://www.geocities.com/writerpatrick/pumpkin.html.

Podcast Ping 21 - Spooky Stanzas

And here is the Halloween episode:


It's filled with songs and poetry I've been saving up just for this episode. It's likely one of the best I've done so far and I'm sure that there will be at least one piece you've never heard. If you're tired of all the radio station playing Monster Mash over and over again, then you'll enjoy this one. The bonus episode later this week will follow-up with the theme of ghosts.

I've been working on the rest of the shows for the year, including the Christmas ones. I have two because one will be original music and one will be traditional. I've also packaged the original music in an interesting way, one a little different than I've done before.

I'm planning to clear out everything I've saved up this year, including the poetry, and if I haven't played it by the final show if the year it will go into that. I want to get into all new music and poetry for next year. Some of the poetry I have is stuff I've written years ago. I'm planning to drop themes, with the possible exception of holidays, since I find I'm using music more because it fits the theme than any other reason. This makes it difficult to play some good music that doesn't fit in anywhere. The end of year show will be filled with many of those pieces.
