Well over a year ago, I was contacted by an online radio station that wanted a weekday radio segment of our weekly 80's Nuts newsletter. I had already done some radio news spots before at local radio stations and always had this weird dream of being a DJ myself (they really don't make much money.) So I started the 80's Nuts Update. It was pretty difficult at first to squeeze the contents of the newsletter into little 2 minute segments (less actually after the intro music and exit) but I had it down. Sadly, the radio station went off the air and even though another station wished to pick it up... it wasn't the same.
During my time doing the radio segments, I had talked with the station about the idea of podcasting. They were excited about the concept. At the time, I really didn't know enough about how to set one up to make it a reality... until now. The only thing holding me back from taking the next step forward is the lack of a good name for it. When I started the 80's Nuts newsletter, I had no idea that it might confuse some people. Some wanted movie and television news also. So then I acquired the 80sMusicCentral.com domain name to go with my 80sNuts.com domain. This helped people understand that it was about the music and not about elderly testicles or collecting peanuts, pistachios and almonds from the 1980s (don't laugh, I got emails about both. The worst were the food preparation companies that called and emailed me when I ran the 80's Buffet DJ Service.) If I can find a name that says 80's music news without sounding that generic, I can feel better about this thing and worry about the technical issues. Any suggestions?
