Great listen.

Thanks so much for the alternate music pics from Magnatune. I always thought it was more for classical music since that was the origin. I definitely appreciate hearing thought on different music. I like most of the genre in the show.

P.S. I nearly fell out of my chair when I was listening and the TTS said the show had Dave and then that it had an explicit tag.

Now I have more for my playlist.

Thanks for the feedback

Glad you liked the show. We had fun making it since we were in the same room and actually listened to the tracks in real time.

I mark all my shows explicit since it means "stated clearly and in detail, leaving no room for confusion or doubt", and that's what I aim for. They aren't meant to be offensive though (unless you hate detail).

CC licenses and subscription model

Still listening to the show actually, only started this afternoon... :-)

CC licenses are irrevocable.

Also, you mentioned Amie Magnatune changing their subscription model, is this why you can't sign up monthly anymore?

Re: CC licenses and subscription model

Thanks Dave,

Your comment on the licensing issue is useful. I was confused by the fact that Magnatune offer commercial licenses by subscription (see but the license for non-commercial use is Creative Commons by-nc-sa, which I now understand is perpetual.

The subscription model has changed. In the very earliest days there were several, and you could buy individual albums, including on CD (I have a few). I think a monthly "all you can eat" subscription followed that: I was a monthly subscriber for many years. Finally, about 5 years ago they changed to only offering a lifetime subscription. I imagine this significantly reduced their overheads.

There's a blog where their business model has been discussed, for example:

good stuff

Just wanted to say thanks for this, I really enjoyed the episode and some of the music. I find it kind of hard to find new music so this was pretty great!
