Live Music Blog Podcasts are on hiatus.
Some of you may have notice that I haven’t put out a podcast in a while. I wasn’t sure how I was going to break it to the public so I better just let it all hang out…
From a letter I found on my desk a couple weeks ago…
Last night, I got together with you, your music selection and your microphone to talk openly about the strong feelings I’ve been having that our podcasts had run their course and that we should end it now while it’s still on a high note. Once we started talking, it quickly became apparent that our feelings, while not all the same as mine, were similar in many ways — most importantly, that we all love and respect the podcasts and the Live Music Blog podcast audience far too much to stand by and allow it to drag on beyond the point of vibrancy and health. We don’t want to become caricatures of ourselves, or worse yet, a nostalgia act. By the end of the meeting, we realized that after almost fifty podcasts together we were faced with the opportunity to graciously step away in unison, as a group, united in our friendship and our feelings of gratitude.
So I’m going to kill myself to ensure that Live Music Blog podcasts don’t continue. We are proud and thrilled that our last podcast was Oysterhead’s awesome set from Bonnaroo 2006. For the sake of clarity, I should say that this is not like the hiatus, which was our last attempt to revitalize ourselves. We’re done. It’s been an amazing and incredible journey. We thank you all for the love and support that you’ve shown us.
– Justin’s Hard Drive
It was certainly a sad day for me but I do plan on getting the podcasts back together at some point in the next couple weeks. Just pretend the hard drive quit to pursue medical school — it might help ease the pain…
