Next in the list of wonderful blogger sites you may have missed during your online travels is Classical Connections, a blog authored by Edmonton Symphony music director, Bill Eddins…
Bill’s blog isn’t so much a traditional blog as it is an outlet for Bill’s (free) Podcasts about Classical Music and the History of the World. My understanding is that Bill was the first music director to launch their own free Podcasts about classical music designed to help generate increased interest in classical music.
His offerings are all wildly entertaining, relevant, and are accessible on a multitude of levels. Bill provides this entire service free of charge and is not remunerated for his efforts (a selfless quality not often found among the ranks of pro conductors) and creates the entire production from his home studio.
There are several offerings to select from already although finding them on iTunes can be tricky. When asked about the Apple based SNAFU at Classical Connections, Bill wrote,
“I’m a dedicated Mac head, I own 6 Macs, I love them, but I’ve found that there customer service sucks out loud.”
At least it’s comforting to know that MAC and PC developers will share the same level of Hell together, albeit for different reasons.
