Calling all musicians

0 comments

Do you create or produce original music or have a band?

Would you like some help getting exposure?

 

Send us your music and we will include it at the end of our podcast. Upload it to youtube and we will also provide a link to your video in our description. I rather have the video uploaded by you, the music owner, to protect your copyright and any monetisation that may be available to you from the music/video. Feel free to post a link to your video here as well. These promotions will be offered for free as I just want everyone (including me) to see more of the local music that is out there.

 

There are no restrictions on type of music or censorship or content. Music that uses live instruments will be given preference as I would really like to showcase our local talent.

  • Everyone that I talk to about my podcast always asks me two questions 1. How do I start my own podcast? 2. How much does it cost? It seems that many people are very interested in the idea of having their own podcast but feel intimidated by the expected financial and time requirements. Others (like me) are both willing and able but have no idea where to start. It took me roughly six months to go from wanting to start a podcast to publishing my first episode, mostly because I had to figure all of it out as I went along, so, in an effort to save future podcasters from the hassle and time wastage that I went through I thought I would include everything that I have learned here to help others over those first few hurdles and get Trinidad and Tobago into podcasting for good. Most of this is off the top of my head so I will keep updating this as I discover new things. Feel free to add to it in the comments below. What do I need to start my own podcast? 1. Recording equipment (video recording optional) 2. Editing software (video editing software optional) 3. Podcast Host with RSS feed (If you don't have an RSS feed then you don't have a podcast) Each section is covered in a separate comment below so help keep comments organised.

  • Recently there was an interview held by TV6 about the helicopter crash. The interview was held with a mute and there were many people who voiced their displeasure about it. Will topics on disabilities and special needs treatment in Trinidad be discussed.
