The Freio Music Podcast
Episode 00 - Introduction
This episode is an overview about the Freio Music Podcast
This short episode of the Freio Music Podcast provides you with an overview of the podcast itself. This episode lays out my hopes and dreams for the podcast. I discuss the layout and format of future episodes and reveal who has 'the cutest voice in the world'. If you want to hear artist interviews you can skip to the next episode as this episode only features me, the host of the podcast, aka Michael Morahan. Welcome to the Freio Music Podcast!
Welcome to the Freio Music Podcast. I am your host Michael Morahan. This is episode number zero. THis episode is going to be about the podcast itself. So we are going to get super meta and talk about what we are going to talk about. So, who am I? I am a music student. A Musician. A music Lover. I go to different shows all over the place. I love, love music for sure. I also love to produce. What that [producing music] means to me is using the computer to harness bits and bytes and make some bad ass beats. Beyond that I also love sound engineering. The back end of how everything works. Thinking about the signal flow… Basically, what interests me is how I am reaching your ears right now. That is interesting. I would say that I am a mad-scientist and a musician at the same time. But beyond that the podcast is not about me. The podcast is about artists, other artists. I am going to be interviewing artists from around the world. I am not going to limit myself to genre. It’s going to be far and wide so I hope you enjoy. Hopefully you will find some new music that you have never heard of. Some new artists that you appreciate, that you have never heard of and maybe you will see some that you are familiar with. They are going to be sharing nuggets of wisdom. Young artists, listen up because these individuals and bands they know what they are doing. They have been through it so you can learn something from them. Let them help you along your way to becoming a musician because I know it is not an easy path. It is not; pick up the guitar, plug it into Garageband and you are going to have a new hit single. That is not going to work. You need some guidance.
But if you are not a musician, the podcast will hopefully still be interesting. It is not merely talking about types of instruments and cables and stuff like that. We are going to be talking about stories. How they got to be where the are. You are going to get a behind the scenes… like you are opening up the curtain and shedding some light on who these artists are. It is going to be an interesting podcast
Moving forward, this podcast is likely to evolve. And I want it to evolve because music changes. Life changes, everything on this earth changes. So if you think the podcast would be better with X or Y, I would love to hear it. That could be an artist [that you would like to be featured] or music news, or anything that I cannot even think of, that would be awesome. So please give your input and let me know what you would like to hear on the podcast moving forward. I will do my best to cater to it. Of course can't make a promise that I will incorporate everything that everyone wants, that seems unreasonable. But your input will be listened to and will likely have an impact on the podcast moving forward.
Feedback is very much appreciated. Leave your reviews on iTunes and comments on FreioMusic.com/Podcast. You can get all the episodes and show-notes there. Parents, forewarning, there might be some explicit content. It is unforeseen when it will come up. So just know that if it is something that is unacceptable, maybe this isn't the podcast for you. If you are open to it, we will see where it goes. Basically, I just don't want to filter these artists. I don't want to mute their worlds. Let them come out and say what they need to say and how they need to say it. So that is my stance on explicit content. Not every episode will have any swear words but just know my stance on it. So that is your warning.
In case you were wondering who that cute, partially coherent, voice was at the beginning of the podcast, that is my nephew Declan who is obviously one of a kind. And, in my opinion, has the cutest voice in the entire world. You have got to agree, he has the cutest voice in the world. And if you don’t, whatever. I think it is awesome. He went off script, delivering the priceless line “Pottycast”. Which, I could never have foreseen. He looked at me, out of the corner of his eye, started smiling even before he said the word because he knew what he was going to say. And he knew it was naughty but he delivered it excellently. So thank you Declan for being to voice of the podcast and being the intro. I couldn't have done it without you.
Moving forward, I hope you enjoy the podcast. And please share it with your friends, leave some comments, give some feedback and enjoy the next episode.
