The Quiet Village Podcast

Exotica, Polynesian, Lounge music, featuring interviews and rare vintage recordings from yesterday and today. So come join your host DigiTiki as the record lazily spins on the phonograph and we sip mai tais in our own private palm tree oasis. And best of all ITS FREE.

When I first started the show back in 2008, Apple was THE standard for podcasts.  So, I opted to released the episodes in AAC format, which is an Apple proprietary format.  It is not playable on every device out there.  So I am currently working on converting ALL episodes over to MP3 format - which is universally compatible.  

FOR CURRENT SUBSCRIBERS: keep in mind when this change over happens, you subscription may look like there are 80+ new episodes all at once. Just keep that in mind. The feed may treat the new formatted episodes as new episodes. I'll try to keep that from happening, but just a heads up. THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT OF THE SHOW OVER THE YEARS!! NEW EPISODES ARE COMING VERY SOON.

A quick note about some changes to the podcast.

How to subscribe to the Quiet Village Podcast.

If you are unfamiliar with a podcast, don't worry.  Think of a podcast as an on-demand radio program.  Way back when Apple first release the iPod, one of the features was the ability to load your music library from your computer into your iPod and take 100's or 1,000's of songs with you in your pocket.  In the internet, something called RSS feeds were being used to allow people to see up to the minute news articles.  The feed would search the news source it was connected to, find the newest articles, and download them to the user's computer--to be read at their leisure.  Someone had the bright idea that you could also use that same function to download audio files.  Hence, the podcast was born.  Suddently you did not need to tune into a particular radio station at a particular day and time to listen to your favorite show.   You could have your software download it when it was released and have it waiting for you when you got up in the morning or came home from work.

So a podcast show is essentially an audio recording of a radio show (or similar type of show) that is downloaded automatically to you becuase you subscribed to the feed that the show is released on.  Pretty cool!
