Below is an exact replica of my Radio Page. I have been on and off producing podcasts since 2005. I intended to update my radio page tonight and it morphed into a semi blog post so I thought Id share it here on the blogs–I haven’t made written one since March of 2015-Sorry its been crazy with a toddler- But good crazy. Anywho, I figured maybe this would reach people who didn’t know about my podcast and also share some insight to when, how and why I started doing a podcast:

I have always had an interest in music, radio and the technology behind it.

Back in 2005 I was a subscriber to WIRED magazine. Specifically the March 2005 Issue featured a story about how a guy named Adam Curry ” Wants to make you an iPod radio star”  I had just bought an iPod in September of 2004 ( this is a rough estimate of time- I’m getting old…) and really hadn’t learned much about it yet. I also had just started liking Talk radio during the build up of the 2004 elections- My First Time being able to vote. So after reading the article I wanted in on this new internet sensation but had NO audio training and didn’t really know what the heck I was doing, not that my “shows” now are that great but I enjoy making them and hope to improve the “art” as I go along.

It was tough, my audio sucked and I’m not sure anyone really listened back then. I hosted my “show” on a MySpace music account as that was easy… I eventually got it on iTunes but I think its all lost now some 7 years later. The very next year I started the Entertainment Technology program at GTCC and finally got some audio training and continued the podcast but I have quit several times due to “life” happening and not having the time to dedicate to it. in 2016 I am hoping to change my format more to fit the talk radio I feel most in love with– The Allan Handelman Show, Rock talk but also more. Allan has been an inspiration to me ever since I first heard him on the local (now defunct) FM talk radio station. He had an AWESOME afternoon show- just in time for my commute home from College to work; as well as his Sunday night show.

I wanted to update this section but did not intend to type this much. I think I will copy this and make it a blog post as well. Thank you for checking out my “Radio” page and please be sure to check it out via the links below:

  1. Hey, man! How have you been? I’ve been doing pretty good. It’s been forever since the good old days at GTCC. I have some performance videos on my YouTube channel at YouTube.com/benjimartinmusic. Check them out when you get time.
