The 6.5 Questions
1. How long have you been podcasting?
We began in October of 2004. Buzz Bruggaman, the father of Active Words, turned me on to the concept and after hearing Adam's show, I knew we needed to be podcasting, too.
2. How many shows have you done?
We've just recorded our 16th program. The shows typically run 30 to 45 minutes depending on the content. We usually produce do one a week.
3. How has your quality/performance changed since your first show?
We've tried to elevate the production to a broadcast quality level. WKNR was a class act during it's day and we try to live up to that standard. The show has evolved into a mix of music, air-checks and interviews, all produced in the style of 60's Top 40 radio. We've paid all the license fees to do it legally and try to keep it relevant, up to date and fun.
4. What podcasts do you listen to and which are your favorites?
Brian Ibbott does a terrific job with his Coverville Podcast. And for the latest tech news, Todd Cochrane's Geek News Central show is one of the best.
5. Tell us about your show and who should be listening to it?
The Keener 13 Podcast celebrates the days when Top 40 radio was being born and the rock and roll was truly in its prime. WKNR was a legend in Detroit from 1963 through 1972 and we celebrate its legacy with a mix of classic air checks, pop culture and rare 60's music. We also do a weekly podcast and media news update segment, talk with other podcasters about their programs and do occasional historical features about events in the 60s that shaped our lives. The show is primarily aimed at those who grew up during that era, but we hope it translates well to any generation.
6. What is your background (especially if relevant to your podcast)?
I grew up with radio dreams and worked in the biz for ten years, before becoming a telecommunications executive. When we launched www.keener13.com in March of 2002, that lead to several opportunities to resurrect the station in Detroit for the annual Woodward Avenue Dream Cruise event, which features classic 60's muscle cars. While my day job is all business, I still enjoy the opportunity to return to my radio roots each week.
6.5 Is there anything else your listeners should know about you, your show, etc?
The program is totally interactive and we try to produce content that the listeners request. We did a JFK assassination program in November that had over 30,000 downloads and we recently did a Johnny Carson podcast with some stuff that wasn't shown on the many TV tributes.
