Introducing Bar Towel Radio!

Postby Cass » Tue May 08, 2007 11:33 pm

Hi folks,

I'm happy to introduce something I've been thinking about for a while - a Bar Towel podcast, a.k.a. Bar Towel Radio!

The intention is to have Bar Towel Radio provide introductions and overviews to beer fans about what's happening in the Ontario beer scene. I think many people are coming to the site for the first time and there's a lot to digest about what's happening out there. I'd like BTR to help give new beer fans a resource for all the great things in the beer industry.

I'm aiming to do a new episode every week or two, each nice and compact at 10-15 minutes.

Initially I'm going to focus the episodes on interviewing beer personalities in the industry - and for the inaugural episode I'm happy to say that Black Oak's Ken Woods was our guest.

You can download the MP3 file of the episode at the following link.

This is my first one, so comments are welcome.

If anyone would like to be interviewed for a future episode, please drop me an email at cass@bartowel.com.

Great Cass!
I've listened to it twice now.

The info is fantastic, and I found out a lot about Black Oak.


This will be a must listen for me!

I just want to say this is a fantastic idea and about time. While I listen to great homebrewing Podcasts like Basicbrewing, Bar Towel Radio is a great way to stay on top of the Ontario scene.

Keep up the great work

That guy sounds like a whiny wanker.

(actually it was a lot of fun and went really well after Cass's dog stopped barking at me, critical even before the interview)

I look forward to hearing more of these.
Guess i'll have to upgrade my 286.

Cheers
Ken

Great addition to the site Cass! I just played the first podcast and the audio is clean and clear...at least by the standards of my small polk audio set up. Great idea to get some inside background on the brewers we have supported in the local craft market.

How interesting, it seems the Ontario Craft Brewers just launched a podcast. Their first episode has an interview with Wellington County.

Their concept seems somewhat familar... :-)

Cass - how did you find out about the OCB blog & podcast? Unless I'm missing something, the main page of their website still seems to be the same old page that hasn't been updated in two years or so.

I found about it in a roundabout way - my friend told me about the podcast as it was indexed in iTunes' directory. I listened to it and it mentioned ontariobrewer.ca. Very odd that their home page isn't updated with this info.

So brand new URL ontariobrewer.ca redirects to ontariocraftbrewers.com/blog, while the established URL ontariocraftbrewers.com hasn't been updated in almost two years and doesn't mention the blog or podcast at all.

Way to go, OCB. :roll:
