The time has finally come to say goodbye.
Audio Gumshoe has been in production off and on since 2005. The show as first titled Miami Valley Musicast during the first few months of 2005. It featured only musicians from southwest Ohio (not Miami, Florida as many people thought). Following a cease and desist order by a domain squatter who owned the rights to the name musicast* the show was renamed Audio Gumshoe and the music began to feature a range of talents from around the globe.
A member of the Association of Music Podcasting, Audio Gumshoe was teamed up with a diverse group of music podcasts that featured every genre of music imaginable. It was a pleasure to get to know and work with this great group of producers from countries all around the planet.
Unfortunately, life happens and we all have had to go our many separate ways. But, please know that it has been a pleasure producing for you and sharing the many great songs and talents. Wow. Thirteen years of music and production. I only wish I had the time to do more. However, I, too am a musician and I find that I’m enjoying time performing with my own band. I’m writing when possible — AND — I’m enjoying watching my own son write and perform music with his band, as well. So — the craft continues.
I’ll be compiling all I can from the archives and placing them on to Archive.org as soon as time permits. Look for some of the back catalog from both Miami Valley Musicast and Audio Gumshoe there now. And watch for some of the more recent shows in the very near future.
For those that have recently submitted music, I apologize that we couldn’t connect and get your shows produced. Perhaps someday we’ll get to try again. For now, Audio Gumshoe has certainly run its course. The glass is in the drawer; the cap is on the hook and the shingle is off the wall.
Cheers to all,
