The New Publishing Schedule for the Wade-O Radio Podcast

DJ Wade-O from Wade-O Radio on the Mic

I hate change. I know hate is a strong word, but I really do dispise it. Based on your feedback, its time we make some changes though.

Starting this spring at SXSW in Texas, on thru PDY in North Carolina and even last week at Legacy in Chicago, I’ve had the chance to connect with many of you at various events this summer. For those who have met me in person, you know I always ask how we can make the show better. Thru your great feedback, a consistent theme emerged the past few months: the podcasts were too long.

Initially, I didn’t think much of it, but it kept coming up. By and large, everyone loved all of the content. But two hours IS a lot to listen to each week.

So internally, we began to discuss how we could shorten the show, yet still maintain our obligation of providing a two-hour program for our radio station partners. To make a long story short, we decided not to cut anything, but rather to release the show in intervals of 30 minutes four days a week. That way, we’d shorten each podcast, yet maintain all of the same content that we produce.

Starting today, the new system will go into effect. To keep it simple, this is what will happen each week:

Monday

  • Podcast Episode A Pt. 1
  • iTunes, RSS and Mobile App)
  • Going In Mix and HHH News Blast w/ Sketch Pt. 1

Tuesday

  • Podcast Episode B Pt. 2
  • iTunes, RSS and Mobile App
  • Music, Artist Interview and Wade’s Way Back Track

Wednesday

  • Podcast Episode A Pt. 3
  • iTunes, RSS and Mobile App)
  • Wade’s World Wide Top 5 and HHH News Blast w/ Sketch Pt. 2

Thursday

  • Podcast Episode A Pt. 4
  • iTunes, RSS and Mobile App)
  • Mix of the Week and The Thought of the Week

Friday

  • New Show: Podcast Episode B Full Show
  • Mobile App
  • Episode B will be released in 4 Parts Mon – Thurs the following week.

So if you are a iOS mobile or Android mobile app user, nothing will change. You will get the full show on Friday’s and the full interviews on Wednesday or Thursday’s. If you subscribe to our podcast in iTunes or subscribe to it via RSS, you will get the show in 30 minute increments Mon – Thursday.

Our goal in doing this is to make it easier for you to listen to the show (30 minutes is easier to digest than 2 hours) as well as align our format more with the top music podcats in iTunes. Most of those podcasts are 30-40 minutes in length. While this will increase our frequency of release, we’re hopful the shortened format will appeal to new listeners who may have been intimidated by a 2 hour podcast.

We’re set to try this thru the month of August. Please give us your feedback as we ultimately, want to serve you guys in the best way possible.

As always, thank you for your support and patience with us.
