TEXT: Two different attitudes towards podcasting
at showbiz-PR people
MUSIC: Adrian Belew - Whatever
Running time: 08’13”
I have recently mentioned a few summer festivals for the live-music fans in my podcast.
Then I sent the link of that episode to a PR person within the organizing team for those festivals.
For 2 of them, the Luminato festival and the Ottawa Blues festival, I also made an offer to cover the festival in my podcast, asking for press access in exchange.
The answers I got were totally opposite.
LUMINATO = we welcome a podcaster to cover the festival; we will grant you access to shows and maybe access to interview artists.
OTTAWA CISCO BLUESFEST = we are not interested in your offer to cover the festival as a podcaster. Look at our media access policy.
(their media access is for mainstream-media only)
MUZIKK. I know Adrian Belew since 1981’s DISCIPLINE. Not only is he one of the greatest adventurers in guitar artistry, but he is also an accomplished vocalist. I just felt I need to say that.
