On August 12, 2007 our first radio programme was broadcast on internet radio station Sunshine LIVE. At that time we didn't have a website, so there was no podcast yet. Of course I kept the programme, and you can still listen to it via our archive
At that time I made the programme with 3 other persons, Missy, John Werkman and Henk Wever. They did the presentation, I was the sound engineer. Nowadays I run the the complete project mainly on my own. Catself is still helping me, but mainly on the background, helping me with correcting some texts. Not this one, so sorry if it is not perfect.
This week I started to prepare the eleventh season of TalentCast, selecting music for the upcoming radio programmes and fixing some last tiny issues with the new server software. Last season I had to deal often with many issues, because all hardware and software was end of life. Now everything is new, software is up-to-date, and the hardware is much more robust. I also have a spare server now, which I hopefully won't need.
There are also some website updates, but most are hidden for you. The previous website caused some memory issues which needed to be fixed. The almost 10 year old login page is programmed from scratch again, and I added a new feature: You can now stay logged in. I also tried to make it a bit harder to manipulate results of the voting. For the rest I changed the look of the main page of the forum, and added some new tools for myself to manage and monitor the website more efficient.
Starting September 1, you can expect new weekly editions of TalentCast again. Artists who read this: I still need a lot of new music. If you recorded new songs this summer, feel very welcome to upload them.
