Update on JBP#025 PDF Paper & Give-A-Way

In Jersey Boys Podcast #025 we mentioned two items that should have some follow-up:

  1. Stephanie wrote a great English paper that focused on her experiences with John Lloyd Young's Tony Award acceptance speech.  Here is a link to the PDF.
  2. We have Jersey Boys t-shirt and a signed Jersey Boys program by the the four main Broadway cast members John Lloyd Young, Daniel Reichard, Christian Hoff, and J. Robert Spencer that we'd like to give away to a Jersey Boys Podcast listener via a free random drawing.  The details on what to do to get in the free drawing are in the podcast, so you have to listen to participate.

Podcast Update - Feeling Under The Weather

Just a quick update on where we stand with a new Jersey Boys Podcast.  I am still recovering from feeling under the weather over the last week which caused me to get a sore throat and a cough.  In addition, I had to go on a quick business trip from San Diego to Washington DC, and that has cause some work load backup.

I was able on Sunday afternoon to completely produce the content for the next podcast, but my voice is still not ideal and I'm going to postpone recording the next podcast until things sound better. 

There will definitely be a new Jersey Boys Podcast by Oct. 29th.

Thanks for all the support and great feedback. -- Steve

Podcast Recommendation - Good Night Burbank

The JerseyBoysPodcast was at the recent Podcast & Portable Media Expo (PME) 2006 and one of the video podcasts that seemed interesting and innovative was Good Night Burbank.

It is a humourous look at the TV news and reporter business, with production and writing that is appealing for those looking for a quaility podcast program. 

So ... check out Good Night Burbank and let us know if you want more new media recommendations!
