Britcasters meet-up Beer and beer with Adam Curry, Ron Bloom and Kris Jacob from Podshow inc. hanging out with a great bunch of podcasters. Amazing pioneering spirit and everyone helping each other. If you can imagine 50 people who spend their days talking or thinking about talking you’ll realise that it really wasn’t like a Quaker meeting! There are some photos on Flikr at the Britcaster tag (click here)
Don McAllister runs Screencasts Online and the Euro Mac podcast – he’s doing really well through great content and being a really nice guy. He recently gave up his day job to focus on podcasting. I’m sure there will be a few doubts in his mind for a while but take it from someone who has been freelance for the last 20 years, “Risk is the toll you pay for leaving the land of predictable misery”. Go Don!
Also met up with Bryan Page aka Jesta who created the modern classic Me my music and my iDog

Millenium Point, Birmingham – Surprisingly few pictures available but take a look at the interactive floor plan at Millenium Point
Miggs – Suddenly Wonderful
John Meed recommended this one – a good find John. Miggs have just finished a serious spring tour.
They have a comprehensive site so take a look at it for details of CD purchases, gig dates, etc.
Gokee Qwateto – Bad Writer
There is virtually nothing to be found on the band’s website or in their PMN listing. If you know anything more, please drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org
The limited PMN note points out a similarity with Dan Hicks and his Hot Licks who have been producing fine many years.
Gokee Qwateto at PMN
Loads that there wasn’t time to fit in again. There seems to be more and more music on PMN and other sources and so little time to sift through it.
Don’t forget that Frappr Map!
