ok... I hope this is Ok to post here. I'd really like to make this work.

Is there a way we can do an internet radio show on Redszone? OR, can I get someone to help me make my own with links to and from Redszone? I probably need to be making this request to Boss, GIK, GAC and the rest but would, could anyone help?

I think it is possible.

You just need something to record the show with (i.e., computer with a microphone), software (it's free) to convert the audio file you record to MP3 (preferably), and someplace to put it on the Internet. It would be nice if RedsZone let you put the recorded show on their site. You would have at least one listener in myself! I always enjoy reading your insightful posts. Just let me tryout to do the intro and outro songs for the show! :)

No tryouts needed. You spoke up first, you get to go first.

Managing the phone calls would be tough. Reading e-mails, doing a few interviews, much easier.

A few things to think about:

How will you be recording? do you have equipment to record phone interviews?

Committment. Can you commit to a consistent schedule?

Content. All teams? general info? one team? your format will be important.

GREAT questions.

I do have equipment to record. Even if I need more I will go buy it.

My season is nearly over. So, yes I do have time. During the season it will be touhger but instead of going to the movies while on the road I can do the show. 3-4 days a week would be good. I seriously doubt I or anyone can do 5-7 days a week.

We should focus on the Reds but also talk all of baseball as news comes up. 70/30. Basically the format of the board. No matter who I work for I will always be a Reds fan.

Have you listened to ESPN's Baseball today podcast? Lame announcer, but the content is pretty good. Lasts about 15 minutes i think.

IF you can get access to a radio booth, that would be great. If not I think you have to have a guest to keep things rolling (before web development, I was in TV for about 12 years). I'd start with 1-2 times a week, and max it at 3-4. Whatever feels comfortable for you, so long as you get consistent with the schedule. I'd also solicit topics from here for your podcasts. that way you can plan a programming schedule. I'd also contact a major outlet like BA or BP for a partnership of some kind. Not that Redszone isn't great, but there might be money in this for you.

I'm all about the money.

Money is good but I'd be more interested in getting this off the ground and teaching this baby how to walk. We get this thing to where it is a "quality" show then you and I can put our heads together. Great idea. We'll probably need money for Bandwith soon!!

Since Team Clark and I go way, way, way back...I thought I'd throw out my 2 cents worth.

Probably better to deal with emailed questions/opinions, etc. You would need multiple phone lines and the proper and tricky phone equipment to record a live show. If the show goes 'live" you have the problem of dealing with the 'Banana Phone' type callers. No need to waste valuable time with dumb callers, dumb questions, pranksters, and the folks who spend and waste 30-60 seconds saying "hello" and trying to exchange pleasantries and small talk such as "Great weather we're having" or "How 'bout all that rain?"

You have the benefit of editing if the show is recorded for later play, such inserting a commercial message where needed or re-recording an opinion/answer if you are not happy with how you sounded on the first take.

Seems best to sort out the questions before hand and then record a show. You could have a deadline for questions under consideration for the next show. Certainly the show should be available for archiving and podcasting.

Also, editing would allow for the show to be made into two versions. One version could be made available thru a site known as BaseballOnThe Web.com. Another version could be available for attaching to RedsZone.com.

The BaseballOnTheWeb version could include commercials and everything BUT the RedsZone segment.

A fellow and prominent RedsZoner could be interviewed or take part in a segment that would be added to the RedsZone version. The RedsZone.com version would include the show AND the RedsZone segment MINUS the commercials.

Just tossin out ideas.

As always, Linedriver's ideas are well thought out and of great substance. :laugh:

The "live" idea is a no go. Having a "guest" as a caller and recording them is a must. I've done that in the past and it is GREAT! Linedriver has also done that and had a blast as well.

If we ever get this to the point of getting "Banana Phone" type callers then we have exceeded all expectations of this brainstorm.

Editing is a good thing. I have been on several shows in years past. Having heard the segments when aired I felt like I could have sounded better, said something smarter, etc... :laugh:

I have already had some terrific PM's from 'Zoners who have produced Radio shows. They are more than willing to make sure the show is organized correctly and the content flows accordingly. Talk about getting off on the right foot. :beerme:

LD... Good thing we know the person who owns BaseballOnTheWeb.com :devil:

I really want to involve Redszone members. Whether it be questions, an interview, whatever, it only works with them aboard. IMO.

I'm not sure about the two diff't shows. Especially if we were to ever get advertisers. I think they would have a problem with that. Just guessin'

Thanks for all of the insight.

You already have an audience of people at Redszone who would be instant viewers. And my guess is that we would spread "TC Redspod" throughout our network of friends and relatives who are not Redszone.com followers. For instance, out of my extended friends and family who are Reds fans, the number of people is probably about 50 people whom I would probably want to connect with "TC Pod". So, even if you just thought about a show that was tuned to our interests, my guess is you could reach a much wider audience.

At this point, if I were creating the show, I would focus on podcasts that provides the same kinds of insights TC brings to the board. Add to that some appearances from our illustrious illuminati (the "10"?) and I think we'd have a winner. And given the exponential "friends and relatives" component of this, my guess is TC Redspod could swim along in the Internet underground as a bonafide alternative to what comes out of WLW.

That would be very cool.

A guy I know from another message board does a Boston Celtics podcast. He has been very successful. In the first half year of launching he has already interviewed one of the guys who does the Celtics TV pregame and he has an interview set up with the Cs play by play guy.

This is a great idea and something I am sure would be VERY successful if done right.

wretch.

The first step is the site. Either the one you and LINEDRIVER mentioned or another one, doesn't matter. get the site up and running. Even if it is just a warehouse of podcasts, and the link is here on Redszone, it's a start.

An initial podcast describing the "show" with a topic or two thrown in. I'd limit the cast to 10 minutes max on the first one. I'd then expand to 15 minutes and probably hold there. Your first topic can be deadline trades. I think you have an opinion or two on them. :)

But getting the site up and running is the first priority. gotta have a home for the content.

Some quick editing with software could make two shows, not alot of hassle involved there.

I was just throwin that out that idea if you are interested in making the show available thru RedsZone.com. AND your BaseballOnTheWeb.com website. I'm not sure the RedsZone bigshots want sponsors/commercials on the RedsZone.com

However, if 'The Joe Blow Potato Chip Company' wants to shell out some bucks and sponsor 20 shows over 60 days, for example, do you say bye to Joe Blow or RedsZone??? LOL !!!! My line of thinking was to be nice to the great folks at RedsZone and look out to make a buck if it can be made. The best of both worlds, no doubt.

TC, whoever else is working with this. Another way to get the word out on the thing when its ready would be to maybe cooperate with all of the Reds bloggers out there maybe. There are so many good ones out there from redreporter to redlegnation to reds(and blues) and many more. The traffic they all get to the sites they run would probably bring in some listeners as well, becuase well they are all reds fans who go to those sites.

And TC, I dont know who all is going to be doing what with the thing, but something as simple as taking a first airing of it, with commercials and then a second edit airing without the commercials would honestly take all of 5 minutes to create from the original file for someone who knew what they were doing. I am sure those working with you will know exactly what I mean if you dont.

Gizmo Project (http://gizmoproject.com/) would be a great choice for this, since it's free, has a built-in recorder (http://gizmoproject.com/call-recording.html) and a free conference calling (http://gizmoproject.com/conf-calling.html) feature.

its basically internet radio.

most podcasts i've usually seen are usually recorded and then uploaded.

i've done a couple shoutcasts in my day and its hella fun. if you want to keep it live its the way to go. you could set up an IRC chat or have people AIM questions to you whilst you are internet talking and it could work.

As far as networking the radio show, below is a couple of examples of the dialogue I had earlier today. the rest were eerily similar. :)

Me: Would you be willing to listen to a radio show discussing baseball with TCII?

One of my girlfriends: Who is TCII?

Me: A scout/player developement guy from the Tampa Bay Devil Rays.

One of my girlfriends: Ummmm, no.

Pretty good game going on there then.
Quick question about Delmon....He obviously can hit with the best of them. Does the lack of walks have anyone worried? I mean I guess its hard to hit .330 and walk a bunch too, but whats your opinion on that?

In time I think he will relax a bit more at the plate and become more selective. He may walk more. Then again, he may find a way to continue his aggressive ways and find success. I tend to think he will end up walking more.

Dude can rake. No question.

But could SteelSD keep his answers to a 30 second radio format? ;)

What? You want pithy responses in 30 seconds? No problemo if the questions are pre-screened. And hey, I've got the voice for radio.

I'm up for it if a cable modem connection can be used to connect me to the conversation when I have time for it. But the real question is whether or not Team Clark is comfortable taking me on in real-time without resorting to Furman-level hyperbole or the tactics he's recently used on the board. If so, I'd welcome a real live-air debate format.

Could be a partnership made in heaven. But, again, it really is dependent upon Team Clark's fear level.

TC, how are you gonna find the time for this?

I'd think someone in your position might be a little pressed for it.

Wouldn't it also be some kinda conflict of interest thing, doin' a Reds broadcast when you work for another team and all?

Yea', one of them. The girlfriend laughed when she read the post.

My question again.... which thread was it that you were giving Steel "a bunch of crap"? I hate to ask again, but I'm not inclined to read every thread on two different boards.

I haven't read this whole thread. I have a friend who set up his own internet radio show. He does it once a week. I don't think I have his link anymore. It's pretty neat. There's actually a chat feature right on the broadcast, so you can interact with him during a live show ..... questions etc. The whole thing sprang from a trivia group I was involved with.

I just did a search and found this: http://www.pirateradio.com/

I'll look around some more when I have some time today. I'm certain to have it in an old mailbox.

I feel like watching Point/Counterpoint with Bill Murray and Jane Curtin on Saturday Night Live.

I did radio in Athens for 10 years. I had to quit when I took my current High School Althletic Director job. I would love to help anyway possible with being involved with the show or being part of the show, or helping host the show.

Just let me know. I might be able to help get things set up.

Needless to say this is really coming along. TRF, Buckeyenut, MartyFan, Brutus, RyanParker, Javy and SEVERAL others are really making magic happen.

The more I talk to people the more I hear that I should do this aside from Redszone. I really want Redszone to be integrated and have some pretty cool ideas for that.

I'm not sure if I am allowed to post that we are need of some funds to make this a reality. Is it possible to do a funds drive on Redszone for this?

I already asked him, he's a "go". I lost George Foster's number but Ken is set to e-mail it to me. I'm sure I'll be able to get Tom Hume and a few Reds pitchers. Pat Tabler, Marc Hill, Ricky Bennett, Ty Taubenheim, T.J. Beam and a few minor leaguers have all indicated they would do it. I called Buddy Bell and left him a msg. I'd love to have David on with him. Johnny Alamaraz is a possibility. Tough to get ahold of.

Lookin' good. :thumbup:

Just for everyone's information, I charge 350 bucks per appearance, and I darn well BETTER have bottled water provided.

That and a couch in my dressing room. If I don't get a couch in my dressing room, I'm going to be very upset.

Very. Upset.

Ronnie Oester said he would make an appearance for $250. Bob Boone called to say he would undercut Ronnie and do it for $200.

However, when Boone gets to the Green Room, he wants only yellow and green M&M's and his personal commode with Charmin butt tissue.
