Why Music Podcasts Are Exploding In Popularity

Aug 17, 2007
The Internet has become a very popular for a way of getting music. Many people go online to find songs to download for their phones, or iPods, or MP3 players, or even to make their own CD mixes. The Internet has become an easy way for people to access a lot of music from home.

Podcasts are another way people are sharing their music over the Internet. Podcasts allow musicians to share their music with others. Most times these musicians are small independent groups who are trying to gain publicity and get a larger fan base. This is a great way for these musicians to get their music out there, and hopefully get noticed by the music industry.

Fans also love these Podcasts. The Podcasts allow the musicians and fans to have a closer connection with each other. Fans can give the musicians their feedback on their music. This is also a great way for the musicians to get a better idea of what their fans truly want from them. The musician may get a lot of requests for the same thing, and can know change what ever he needs to in order to make his fans happy. This also allows the musician to gain a loyal fan base.

Fans can get on these Podcasts and listen to music from their favorite musicians. You can listen to music before you go out and buy the whole CD. This is also a great way for the musicians to gain interest in their new releases before they come out in stores.

Musicians are not the only ones who can benefit from Podcasts. DJs are also benefiting from this. They can Podcast their own mixes and get some publicity as well, although, most of these DJs play Podcasts just for the love of it.

Podcasts will probably soon become subscription based just like the other places you can download music from. This will allow musicians to start charging a fee for their feeds. This should not be a problem as long as the musicians keep updating their music with new songs for their listeners. There are some non music groups that have already said they would Podcast their files if it became subscription based.

If you are a music lover this is a great way for you to stay connected even more. You can get online and sample new music, and even find a new band that you might really like. You never know what you will find and what you might like. You may find a new band that peaks your interest. You can even give your feedback and have a close connection with your newfound band of liking. The Podcast benefit the musicians and fans alike, what a great combination.
