A story should always begin with a nice introduction -

Welcome to the “Wow That’s What They Call Music” Podcast where comedians, improvisers, musicians, and various other interesting personalities chat about the unstoppable “Now That’s What I Call Music” enterprise.  This isn’t some snarky clip show where we are trying to take cheap shots - it also isn’t an indiscriminate love-fest for every minor redeeming quality these tracks may possess.  We’re using NOW to capture time-and-place through our own memories and perspectives.

Wow That’s What They Call Music is launching across all ear-waves and internet-machines!  We had so much fun on this first episode, that we broke it into an excellent two-parter.  Second part coming tomorrow, but for now - enjoy this episode:

Mixing Girl Power with a splash of Tonic, NOW Volume 1 (Part One) is a classic snap-shot of late-90s teen angst!  HAMPTON YOUNT (@hamptonyount) and KAT RADLEY (@katradley) re-live the dreams and nightmares attached to these first 8 “hits!”   What the hell happened in Fastball’s The Way?  Is everybody coming to get me?  Check out wowmusicpodcast.tumblr.com and www.jeffmackinnon.org.

LAUNCHING with LOVE!

Now HELLO friend!

Welcome to the "Wow That’s What They Call Music" Podcast where comedians, improvisers, musicians, and various other interesting personalities chat about the unstoppable “Now That’s What I Call Music” enterprise.  This isn’t some snarky clip show where we are trying to take cheap shots - it also isn’t an indiscriminate love-fest for every minor redeeming quality these tracks may possess.  We’re using NOW to capture time-and-place through our own memories and perspectives.

Feels fitting that we are launching on February 14, 2012 (Valentine’s Day) so that we can throw some love out on the day when people feel forced to throw out some love. Except that this is and never will be forced.  It’s recorded, cut, and delivered to you with free-flowing love…

Speaking of love, if you love or at least like it a lot, please DONATE to the show.  We are 100% listener supported and like it that way.  So drop us some love through Paypal, tweet us some love @wowpod, or find us on Facebook!  

Now, let’s do this!

Cheers,


Jeff
