Want your music on a Baseball Prospectus podcast?

Postby Carl on Fri Dec 31, 2010 2:13 pm

A couple of the guys who write Baseball Prospectus have a weekly podcast in which they spend about an hour talking baseball and an hour talking about music, food, and other stuff. One of the two, Kevin Goldstein, is a big fan of a lot of the music the people on this board play. A couple months ago, Kevin interviewed Rob Warmowski, and he’s used tracks from Shellac and Dianogah as bumper music. Each podcast uses one band for 4-5 tracks, and they discuss the band briefly about an hour and a half into the discussion.

Now that the podcast is 30 episodes in, Kevin’s looking for more bands to feature. A few weeks ago I sent him a couple names of PRF bands he might enjoy. Since then, he’s featured Bear Claw and the Bismarck, and he told me from what he does know of the bands on the board, he’d love to hear (and feature) more he hasn't heard yet.

Drop Kevin a line at podcast@baseballprospectus.com with a link to a couple of tracks if you’re interested in getting your music played in between discussions of Venezuelan shortstops. Doing so will help me and countless other baseball geeks across the globe listen to good music as we wait for spring training to start.

The rock band .22 reference baseball on occasion, most visibly on the incredible album The Worker.

Dude -- thank you for the tip. The number of people who have heard our music has finally grown to over eight people!

He's not kidding, folks. Write these guys.

I have no idea who the band is on this week's podcast, but there is an amusing discussion of a few White Sox "prospects."

Hi everyone, I'm Kevin Goldstein, the host and producer of the podcast in question. A couple of things:

A. If you've already emailed us and haven't heard back, I will be getting in touch with you this week, I just got caught up in some real world stuff. We'll be using you as we can, one week at a time.

B. Just to clear up the misconception, you certainly do NOT need to have songs about baseball. Rocking and dissonance are what is favored. While the show is ostensibly about baseball, it's really about 2/3 baseball, 1/3 yammering about things like music, film and the joys of Coca-Cola that is manufactured in Mexico.

Supporting the independent arts is important to us, and we're thrilled to have a forum that allows us to expose new music to a few thousand listeners with each show. We use music as bumpers in between each segment and always play one song in its entirety at the end of the show. We also have a brief segment where we talk about our musical guest and we're always happy to tell our listeners where they can get your music and/or share details about any upcoming shows. If you'd like to get in on the fun, just email me at podcast@baseballprospectus.com and thanks so much.

Kevin interviews Steve for about 40 minutes, talking about everything from Johnny Bench to the 80s Chicago punk scene to Dolly Parton to Oney Guillen. Great stuff.

Steve, I can put you in touch with someone who had recorded Willie Nelson frequently if you want. Recording Willie is about as achievable a goal as gaining weight on a steady diet of Lou Malnati's.
