  1. The BassCast for Tuesday, September 27, 2005

  1. Opening music: This time its another selection from “The London Double Bass Sound” CD produced by Cala Records . The clip is from the track “Carmen Fantasy” - music by Bizet.

  1. My setup: Cheap headset with microphone incorporated, Audacity for converting sound clips, GarageBand for recording and mixing the podcast, iTunes for making the conversion to mp3 and of course its all done on a brand new (09.14.05) PowerBook G4 15 inch 1.67 GHz with 1.5 GB ram and a superdrive (of course) which I bought on my trip to Canada this summer at Evolution Concept in Montreal.
