Podcasts : Episode #1

 Friday, September 30th 2005, 12:15 am

You may remember a while ago that I talked about some ideas I had for the website to keep things fresh. Well finally I’ve managed to get things up and running in my studio and you’ll find something quite exciting happening…

What is it then?

Introducing the DJ Cruze Podcast!!

[podcast direct download] | [podcast RSS feed]

In case you have no idea what I’m talking about then here is a quote from Wikipedia:

Podcasting is a method of publishing audio programs via the Internet, allowing users to subscribe to a feed of new files (usually MP3s).

I’ve done a radio show but in a compact MP3 format. It’s about 50 minutes long so that’s about 35MB in total (at 96KBps). If you have a broadband internet connection then it shouldn’t be too bad to download. Download it, stick it on your iPod, portable MP3 player or computer and you’ll have me, DJ Cruze, playing some of my new tunes and talking rubbish!

You can download the show using the link above if you want. Just simply right click on the link above and save it to your computer. But a better way to do it is to to subscribe to the podcast rss feed. If you don’t know what to do then here’s a quick run down of how to do it using Apple’s iTunes:

  • Run iTunes.
  • From the main menu click “Advanced” and then click “Subscribe to Podcast…”.
  • In the box that appears enter the URL for the podcast feed, http://www.djcruze.co.uk/cms/podcasts/feed/rss2, and click OK.
  • You will now be subscribed to the DJ Cruze podcast and iTunes will download a new one when you run it and it finds a new show. How cool is that?????

If you don’t have iTunes or you don’t want to use it then why not download another tool to get the podcasts. Try one of these applications. Ipodder is particularly good:

  • Subscribe to djcruze.co.uk podcast via iPodder
  • Subscribe to djcruze.co.uk podcast via iPodderX
  • Subscribe to djcruze.co.uk podcast via Nimiq
  • Subscribe to djcruze.co.uk podcast via Doppler

The show was done last weekend so sorry it’s a bit late getting onto the website. I had to do some things to get it running properly. The tags might not show up properly in iTunes yet but that’s something I’ll tweak over the next couple of weeks. It’s better getting the show onto the website than not!

So what’s in the show?
As I said, it’s about 50 minutes at the moment and it comprises of my latest chart, some chat and a classic tune. I’m hoping to do the show every two weeks and I’ll vary the format until I get it right. You guys and girls have to tell me what you want from it so get involved and CONTACT ME.

I hope you like it as I really enjoyed doing it. You’ll no longer be able to complain that I don’t do any mixes as you’ll get one delivered hot and fresh to your computer every two weeks (and maybe more often if you all subscribe and tell me you enjoy it). Let me know if you like it and what you would like to hear on the show!

News : Loads of mixes to upload

 Thursday, September 8th 2005, 5:45 pm

I’ll bet you’ve been wondering where I’ve been again haven’t you? I’ve mainly been busy going to lots of weddings and drinking lots of alcohol.

“That’s the same as always though Mr. Cruze isn’t it?” I hear you say!

Well, ok. Yes it is!

Lots of DJ Cruze mixes!Well here is the other thing that I’ve been doing. I’ve been sorting out my old cassettes and flyers so I can put them online for you all! Look at that big box of tapes! I’ve got at least 100 mixes from DJ Cruze, DJ Vuish and loads of the old DJs that used to come to Vibration with use. Remember Ian Richie? Curly? Big Danny? Mark Currie? I’ve got mixes from all of them! But mainly you’ll be able to download loads of mixes from me and Vuish.

As I said, I’ve also been making some changes under the hood of the website to make sure it’s easier for you guys to download stuff. Hopefully I’ll be able to get newer site live in the next few weeks. I’ve also got a big plan for something interesting which I’m hoping you’ll all like. Fingers crossed…! ;)
