** Podcasting suspended **

Unexpectedly high demand for the Podcast syndication of the Bike Show has caused me to massively overshoot the bandwidth limits on my web server.

As a result I have had to suspend the Podcast syndication facility. However, I will be looking for a way around this. In the meantime, I will continue to provide the Bike Show in streaming Real Audio from the following site (and linked to from the blog):

www.unstablesound.net/bike.html

I will endeavour to put the MP3 files up for manual downloading as well.

Sorry about this, my strong suspicion is that the surge in demand was as a result of the latest version of iTunes being Podcast-compatible.

If anyone has any tips on where I can inexpensively host the Podcast MP3 files and not overrun bandwidth limits, please let me know!

Thanks for your consideration and support.

13 June – Bike Week Special!!

There was an special, extended 90 minute Bike Show broadcast on Resonance FM on Monday 13th June from 12 noon to 1.30pm.

The show features footage from Sunday’s Bike Fest in Trafalgar Square, preview of other Bike Week events and a look back at the past 6 months of the Bike Show.

Guest in the studio is Barry Mason of Southwark Cyclists.

The show is now available online as a Real Audio feed. I have split the MP3 version into three parts, and there are links to these in subsequent posts (one post per file, to work better for the podcasting community).

Chapeau!!
