Every year since 2012 there is a celebration of music and brethren that takes place at BOXO Studio on Hamilton Ontario as Barber Shop Podcast celebrates another year of showcasing the truth and beauty of original independent music and original independent media. In a world where 80% of podcasts fail to last past 10 episodes, Barber Shop Podcast has been delivering the goods every week for well over 200 episodes and there is no sign of slowing down.
The opposite in fact is true, in that we co-ordinated a Go Fund Me campaign to assist in the upgrade of the cameras and lights to allow for 1080HD video content. Making sure the show looks as good as it sounds goes a long way to showcase the treasures we have around here in proper fashion and we chose this episode as the debut of these new systems. It would have been nice if things went off without a hitch, but that wouldn’t be a true representation of what we are all about at all – for our fans love us not despite the fact we are messy – but BECAUSE we are gloriously messy – at times.
So here we are, the mighty 4 year open house anniversary spectacular wherein we have no real idea as to who is going to show up and who is going to be playing what with who. This year, gremlins and glitches had Ryan going a bit nuts and Gary running for cover while I did my very best to entertain and consume beverages for the roughly 2 hours past show time on top of the 2 hours of the predicted and advertised start time of 8. We had a whole bunch of great folks who had to leave before the show even started and the ones who stuck around enjoyed the snacks and copious amounts of delicious booze…..so…..it kinda started late and went even later………
So here it is – farts, warts and all. I ramble and espouse for a good 12 minutes to start the show as it’s almost prophetic in its profane pronouncements but skip ahead to the first act and the host of sudden sidemen if you wish to skip the preamble – Here she be for all to see, the glory that is, and ever shall be,………… Barber Shop PodcastTweet
