Cavalcade of Wonder Podcast
The only music podcast hosted by a person using text to speech.

I use text to speech to host a music podcast of stuff I find interesting. All eras, all genres, whatever instills wonder in me. Songs, Airchecks, Maships, tributes, etc.
Role: Host, director, producer

Woo, I'm glad you got this posted. Just jumping in at the first episode and, dang, that Sly & the Family Stone take on Que Sara Sara—I just heard it for the first time a week or two ago sitting down and watching Heathers for the first time all the way through, and it's the end credits song and really blew me away. Synchronicity.

Wow, that "Make it Groovy" is great -- echoes of several other things mixed in there (or vice versa?) - you say the band is P.P. Dynamite?

(not the only podcast to use TTS: from 2008–2013 I ran The Automatic Podcast, a daily ~30 minute random selection from my music collection with tracks announced by Flite from the ID3 tags. Given that it was the aural equivalent of pocket fluff, it never gathered too many listeners.)
