Today I'm bringing you the third and final installment in the SquireCast interview with Kent's answers. Enjoy and don't forget to listen to the latest SquireCast; it's a Christmas episode and it's embedded at the bottom of the interview for your listening pleasure.
How did the original Squire show get started?
It's a great story -- we should tell it on air sometime. The short version is that we participated in a college radio promotion that involved meeting some DJs, and they told us that it was pretty easy to get a show on the radio station -- even though we were only in high school at the time. We were on the air from 1995-2000, in a few different incarnations.
What was your favorite part of being on the show back then?
Also, interacting with the listeners was always a hallmark of the show -- taking requests, holding contests, having an internet presence. I think it helped us get a loyal following of people who would tune in every week. Plus, we got to meet a lot of chicks.
Whose idea was it to "get the band back together?"
How did you want to new show to resemble and/or differ from the old show?
How does podcasting change the nature of what you were doing on the radio?
How do you choose music to play?
As far as my personal choices, I try to always include a few newer songs, and add some of my favorite older tunes or bands. Of course, one of the best things about podcasting vs. radio is that we can play anything, without having to worry about format or FCC restrictions -- as Rob so eloquently demonstrated during Episode #4.
What has been your favorite SquireCast so far and why?
What can listeners expect in the future?
