Hi everyone! Three big news items to tell you about today:

1. Archive shows #37 and 38 are now up and running at the podcast blog page. I did a new "generic" intro and closing that I'll be adding to all the shows that I lost the intro/closing files to (quite a few, I'm sorry to admit). Also, due to popular request, I've started indicating the length of each track on the playlists. I'll try to get show 39 up tomorrow. Enjoy, won't you?

2. Attention all New York CIty-area folks! You will not want to miss this! Vintage Bellydance - a stage play and performance harking back to the glamorous days of yore! Tailor-made for Radio Bastet listeners, I'd venture to say! It looks like it's one performance only, tomorrow night (I meant to get this posted earlier - sorry about that!!). I'm hoping if it's a hit, more performances will be forthcoming! If anyone gets a chance to see it, please give us a report if you can!

3. Amaya's American Belly Dance Legends DVD is finally out and WOW it is a stunner! Lots of rarely-seen vintage footage of some of Radio Bastet's favorites - Bert Balladine, Ibrahim Farrah, Aisha Ali, Dahlena, even Jamila Salimpour! You will love it - get yours today!

That's all for now! Hope you're shimmying your summer away!

Rachel Brice just left a comment on the Radio Bastet MySpace page calling me her "all time favorite podcaster"! Golly. I'm blushing.

Hey everyone! Long time no hear from. I apologize; life has been crazy for me lately.

First off, podcasts of archive shows 29, 30 and 31 are now up at the site for your listening and dancing pleasure. I hope you love them! http://radiobastet.libsyn.com/

Secondly, I was wondering if anyone would be interested if I started a Radio Bastet network community over at http://www.ning.com I'd kind of like to consolidate Radio Bastet's internet presences. (There's also a MySpace page: http://www.myspace.com/vintagebellydancemusic ) Let me know what you think!

Love and shimmies,

Hey everyone! I want to apologize for the lengthy delay in getting the new shows up. I was very ill last month, and didn't get much of anything done at all. I'm finally feeling better, and felt one of the first things I needed to do was prepare some new podcasts. So archive shows 26, 27 and 28 are now up for your downloading pleasure. Enjoy and shimmy on!

Oh - and just because I'm feeling completely silly, if I were ever to do Radio Bastet live, it might look a little something like this:

Coming your way, heck - they're here already!

Hey my beautiful people! Your summer (or winter, as the case may be) just got a whole lot hotter - archive programs 23, 24 and 25 are now up at the Radio Bastet podcast blog page for your listening and shimmying delectation! Lots of good stuff this time (as, dare I say, always)!

Featuring cuts from:Collapse )

I'm sure I don't need to tell you to get thee hence and SHIMMY ON!!!

Firstly, I want to apologize to all of you for the three-month span inbetween podcasts. The last three months have been pretty insane for me. My mother had two major surgeries, and I've been very preoccupied with her care. It looks like things are starting to settle down now, thankfully. Thank you so much for bearing with me! Radio Bastet listeners are the greatest people on earth!

OK - now for the good news. Three new archive ("new archive" - is that an oxymoron?) podcasts are now up at the site! Check 'em out today!

Also, I've done a slight redesign at the main site in anticipation of the BIG site redesign that should be happening later this year. I got really tired of the layout and the BLACK. I also took down the playlist and cover gallery pages for some much-needed sprucing up. Stay tuned for further developments!

Thanks again for your patience and your enthusiam - that's what keeps me going!

Shimmy on,

Poll #1144408 Forum?

Should I delete this community and create a forum at radiobastet.com?

Why not both?

This community isn't very active, nor is the Radio Bastet tribe over at Tribe.net (OK, maybe it's a bit more active than this one). I've been thinking of deleting both and just having some type of forum over at the regular site. What do you think? I'd really appreciate your input. Thanks so much, everyone!
