My dude Sean Cannon laying it down, talking about music podcasts:
Four years ago, I started telling music industry friends and acquaintances that they should create high-end podcasts built around their artists/albums/labels. At the time, I got two main responses: “So you’re saying we should get our bands on Maron? Do you know him? Can you get us on there?” or “Oh yeah, (insert musician here) is really funny. I’ll have them talk to their buddies.”
I worked with Sean on my music blog from 2005-2008, where he was bascially my right hand man, and helped me really build and expand.
Then when I started Noise Creep at AOL Music, I was able to hire him as my deputy editor, which was both awesome and crazy at the same time (20+ posts a day was nuts).
But Sean went onto to work big time in radio and won a freaking Peabody award. He recently made the the Striped podcast, which is all about the White Stripes.
The thing is, there is so much more to be done with music using the medium of podcasting. Super glad Sean is one of the people leading the charge.
