Hi TalentCast Members,

Since the summer break TalentCast has been doing rather well, More people are tuning in and visiting the website. These are just numbers and not a reason to sit back.

So far there has been little response from our members, but for sure some of you will have an opinion or ideas about the radio programme, the website or the project as a whole. That is why I have just started this new thread, to learn from you about what is going right, what is going wrong, what can be improved, but most of all, your new ideas. Your feedback will be very appreciated and I am looking forward to a lively discussion with you.

Very happy with TalentCast, that give independent artists the oppertunity to be heard.

The presentation of the playlist could be better, it's very Dutch-English, sorry for that!

Thank you Piet. I really do my utmost with presenting the programme and I realize myself that it's far from perfect. I am afraid that I am more talented with mathematics and physics than with speaking and writing in foreign languages.

TalentCast started nine years ago with another presenter, but she left in 2010. Although presentation is not my favourite thing to do, I took it over to continue TalentCast.

Also thank you for uploading your new songs.

Great having somewhere to listen to Independent artists

I've been less than a month on TalentCast and I really glad I made it here which I first knew about from my friend John McMenamin from Moscato. It's a great source for us INDIE artists. I love visit this great site and participate in it opportunities to show my music work to the world.

Johan, regarding presentation, one thing I like about TalentCast is the sound of your voice. You're an improvement on MissY.

With Sellaband gone it is nice to have a forum here, so that is one thing that has gone right, even though the forum has not been used much yet.

Thanks Peter, nice to hear that, although I really enjoyed it to make the programme together with MissY.

I am sad that so many people only use Facebook nowadays. A forum is so completely different, not only your Facebook friends and fans read it, but also others who have the same interests and people who find us by coincidence, for example via search engines.

I made the forum, because so far I am making the programme, artists send music and listeners tune in via the podcast or radio, but there is hardly any interaction. I think the interaction with listeners and artists is what I miss the most since the SellaBand forum is gone.

Also nice that almost everybody uploads a photo. This is the first time that I see how the forum really looks. It was quite a job to make it, because I almost never use code of others when I program for the website. On the forum only the rich text editor is made by somebody else, Trix editor.
