On A Podcast by Cruisebox: Podcasters’ anthem. Stick it to the FCC!

07Aug05

I’ve been listening to Adam Curry’s podcast for more than two months now and he would start his podcasts with a short introduction that goes, “Delta Sierra Charlie… Something reamarkable is happening here… With $60 million worth of airplane strapped to my…” and then a song clip. I forget what the song clip sounded like. Then on his July 27th podcast he played a song by Cruisebox entitled On A Podcast. The song is written by Greg St. Clare who also is the producer of the band Cruisebox. The MarketWatch calls the song as the “battle hymn of the podcast nation.” The lyrics goes:

Do you remember, way back last summer
When mainstream radio was such a freakin’ bummer
No indie music…nothin’ too funny
Clear Channel radio did it for the money

But somebody heard the call
Now, you can have it all

I heard it on a podcast…rockin’ freakin’ radio
You want it, you got it…just download it and pod it
On a podcast…no one’s gonna stop ya
Tell the FCC to stick it…kick it…
The revolution’s on

Do you remember your first computer
That piece of junk was like a freakin’ roto-rooter
Now we’ve got wi-fi, downloadin’ files fast
Listenin’ to everyone who’s ever done a podcast

It’s history, now you see, each and every nation
Radio has got to go, it’s our emancipation
Play that song, sing along, mash it up and mix it
Radio was freakin’ blow ‘til Adam Curry fixed it

Yeah, somebody heard the call
Now, you can have it all

Turnaround
Mp3 killed the radio star…

I heard it on a podcast…rockin’ freakin’ radio
You want it, you got it…just download it and pod it
On a podcast…no one’s gonna stop ya
Tell the FCC to stick it…kick it…
The revolution’s on a

Podcast…rockin’ freakin’ radio
You want it, you got it…just download it and pod it
On a podcast…no one’s gonna stop ya
Tell the FCC to stick it…kick it…
The revolution’s on

The revolution’s on
The revolution’s on
The revolution’s on
The revolution’s on a podcast
The revolution’s on a podcast
The revolution’s on

On August 3rd Curry made “On A Podcast” his starting theme.

I like this song. It’s an in-your-face-big-establishments kind of song that praises the indie producers and podcasters as they wrestle control of the airwaves from the big companies that have tried to control what people can and cannot hear. The internet has indeed given freedom to those who yearned for it for years.

You can download the song here (get the explicit version here) or visit That Podcast Song.com for info about the band and the song. It also has links to remixes of “On A Podcast.” MDN
