I have great news for those of you who have a healthy ZEST for RETRO! For quite a while now I have been chomping at the bit to start the RetroZest Podcast, and I have finally done it! The issue, for me, has always been that I didn’t want my podcast to be a carbon copy of anyone else’s. I shared this briefly in my Blog Post about my Top 5 List of Retro-Themed Podcasts from January 25, 2019.
Since that time I have made many connections in the podcasting community. I attended the ROCKNPOD Expo with my son Christian last August, and made some really great friends who ALL have been a great source of encouragement with regard to my endeavors. You may recall I wrote Blog Post about ROCKNPOD. Aaron Martel of the Ridiculous Rock Record Reviews Podcast has even had me on as a guest co-pilot to participate in a track-by-track analysis of two of my favorite albums, Rush’s Signals and Sammy Hagar’s VOA (if you click on the links, you can listen to those episodes).
With the RetroZest Podcast, I believe I have taken the several things I like about several podcasts, put them all into a virtual blender and made something which is uniquely my own. As a Generation X’er, I have many great stories to tell about the ’70s and the ’80s, and my goal is to ignite some wonderful memories in you the listeners. If I do so, then the Podcast will be a dialogue between us rather than just a monologue from me.
You may access every episode of the RetroZest Podcast (to date, there are four episodes) on this website at www.retrozest.com/podcast. However, the Podcast is also currently available on these popular sites (please avail yourself of the links)…
Please subscribe to the RetroZest Podcast at any of these locations and leave a review of it (especially if you like it) once you have given it a listen. 5-star Reviews of any podcast on Apple Podcasts / iTunes are especially helpful since it bumps it up on the charts and makes it visible to more people searching for content.
I’m really looking forward to this ride. As is the case with all good podcasts, my hope is that mine morphs into something that is palatable not only to Gen X’ers like me, but also to Baby Boomers and Millennials. The RetroZest blog will remain here so that it and the podcast may complement each other.
Thank you, as always, for reading… and now, for listening! If you have any feedback or suggestions, please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Cheers, and keep a healthy zest for retro!
