A few months ago, I had heard of this thing in the news called "podcasting". It's kinda like - you make your own little broadcast via this thingie called an iPod (I believe this is an Apple product), and it's like radio, without all the commercials.

Shortly after, I started reading Clayton's blog The Weight of Glory. Guess what... he podcasts.

Tonight, before the 7:00 PM Mass, I learned that Fr. Finelli now has a podcast going called iPadre. Definitely worth checking out. And check often for updates. Yours truly may have a couple of little ditties on one of his casts. After Mass, he asked me if I could record a few things - two in particular, The Angel Gabriel from Heaven Came, and Victoria's Ave Maria (I managed to adapt this as an organ solo - but it's really best when sung in SATB a capella, trust me). Then he asked me to play any old Advent tune that's pompous. I gave him my own impromptu (which grew to near full organ) of Wachet Auf.

Working on a dialup really stinks, but I'm working on trying to get DSL. But in the meantime, I'll get some time to check some of these podcasts out myself. Fr. Finelli's an excellent preacher. I can imagine how well he podcasts.

By the way, here's a really cool promo he did!

+In Christ,
