GUEST 23 - BUILT FOR GHOSTS - LESSONS IN ENDINGS (FOR BEGINNERS)


Our next guest mix comes from BUILT FOR GHOSTS!

"Slabsofabsence plays guitar and sings for Built for Ghosts. He likes angles, words and rhythms that dont sit together easily. Narratives that make no sense. He follows innocent people around the city then dials the wrong number. He burned photographs in the sink humming the themetune to a gameshow after burying masks on the beach. Sea filling his eyes, he now stares glassy at the animals as they bark politics into plastic bags."
- Slabsofabsence (Built For Ghosts)

Bloody great mix, as ever.
The worms know their onions.
Why don't you put the tracklistings in the info section of the podcasts?

Oh, and thanks for being MyFriend (TM).
kisses on the bottom. xxxx

Thats a good idea Ugy, cheers. Im not sure how to do it though so any tips would be well received.

According to the Apple site, after some digging, include the
(itunes:summary) tag in your RSS feed. You can have up to 4000 chars in here. (/itunes:summary)

I can't use the bloomin' triangle brackets, cos this comment thinks it's html, but you do see what I mean don't you?

I hope this is useful.

thats great cheers Ugy, watch this space and expect tracklists in your itunes from now one. Cheeeeers!

delifinger said...

I didnt have any luck with this im afraid. When I included the tags and info itunes rejected the podcast. It may be down to where the tags are placed or something so Ill keep trying but for now I couldnt delay the new release while I worked it out.

ugy said...

Eesh. I don't know whats up...
I got the info from here

As ever, Olo is the holy mushroom in the damp cellar of the blog.

Ahh
It says you can use the description field if itunes:summary isnt present and we already use the description field so I guess the two were clashing. Would a link to the tracklist from itunes be any help or would it be best to have the list displayed actually in itunes?

delifinger said...

Oh and cheers for the info by the way. :)

ugy said...

No worries!
I sincerely hope this isn't just making life more complicated than it needs to be...

Um..it doesn't say that the two tags can't co-exist in the same feed, just that if there is no <itunes:summary> it will use what's in the description one. Which suggests you can have both...

I think it would be better to have all the info viewable in iTunes, but that's just me.

No problem, we want this to be as user friendly as possible. The next podcast that goes up, Ill have a proper play around with it, just didnt really have time on the last one because we wanted to get it out asap. Cheers again for the feedback, and fingers crossed it will work next time.
