What's in YourSpace?

From the files of the Foreign Correspondent:

There's been a lot of talk in certain quarters lately about audio groups making use of MySpace to promtoe their shows, and it is a pretty good idea... if for no other reason than it's free for heaven's sake. And signing up for a Music page does let you post up to four "songs" (or compressed episodes in this case). It's a swell foot-in-the-door for new listeners who stumble across your page. Oh, I haven't really drunk Uncle Rupert's Kool-Aid, but "free" and "easy" are two adjectives that tend to get my attention. (And yes, I just thought of a hundred and six bad jokes to go with that turn of phrase)

Where was I? Oh, yes. Most of us who've posted shows on MySpace don't have that much material to draw on that regular listeners won't find somewhere else. That's not true at all with the Texas Radio Theatre's page. Since much of their material was previously only available on CD, there's a big catalouge of shows for them to draw from... and they've got some very new material up too, including the first episode of the latest Colonel Nickels adventure; Colonel Nickels and the Sea Monkeys of Atlantis, which I listened to this morning. The globe-hopping, thrill-seeking upper-class twit is a favorite of mine, and this one is a lot of fun. You should swing by and say hello.
