Show #179: Richard Caudle

Our busiest year ever, and countdown to 250 by the end of the year continues.  This is somewhat relevant now, as I just scheduled podcast #199 for early next month and relaized I have made no plans for an episode #200 yet.  I understand the popular trend is to just ignore episodes ending in double zeros, but geez, it's been four years since Episode #100, and most of the people who were on that show have been conspicuously absent from Indy In-Tune for the subsequent 100 episodes. (Not my doing, I assure you.) Also, go figure that, despite the fact that this is (supposedly) a weekly show, I'm only on episode 200 after nine years.  Please don't do the math.  Meanwhile, upstarts like Chris Brake and the Free Beer Express have managed to polish of a quick century of episodes in seemingly record time, so I really need to assert myself as the "old school" of podcasters in this town.  Basically, I'm ready for a party.  So, I'm thinking at the very least we take over Studio C or the Sabbatical deck for an afternoon and have a half-dozen or so really cool people drop by and play some tunes, right?  On second thought I'm gonna need a beer sponsor for this, aren't I?

This week's guest, Richard Caudle, is a character.  A fantastic singer/songwriter known throughout the midwest, he is in possession of a very distinctive voice and an even more distinctive moustache.  I've seen a lot of weird stuff in 200 episodes, you know.  We've had nudity, surrealism, hilarious word combinations, beer through the noise, spontaneous music, earth-shaking revelations, just about everything, really.  This,  however, was probably the first time I've had a guest meow and puke on the same episode -- and the guy was so incredibly professional otherwise.  He even brought a manager/agent who tried to keep him on script the whole time.  Important tip for you: never let us catch you doing this; we see it as a challenge to drag you off script and into the weeds at every opportunity.

Solicitations and Submissions

Solicitations for blog posts can be made by sending and email to "blog -at- indyintune -dot- com" and should follow these guidelines:

  • Local (Indianapolis-based) acts always have priority.
  • Visisting acts playing a bill with one or more local acts are also considered.
  • We generally don't like to repeat content found on other sites. If your request already has a lot of coverage on other sites, it will be considered low-priority unless you can give us an exclusive angle.
  • For obvious reasons, we don't do solicited album reviews, though we do appreciate you letting us know when you have a new release. Consider coming in and talking about the album yourself live on the air or a podcast.
  • All of our staff writers are unpaid enthusiasts. All requests for blog posts are entirely at their descretion.
  • As such, they generally need a lot of lead-time to put something out -- we're talking weeks of lead time, not hours.
  • That said, individual authors have full authority to ignore the following guidelines and write whatever they want ... if you can convince them to.
  • In addition, feel free to write your own post and submit it for posting as a "guest blogger." Those almost always get accepted.
  • Finally, regional or national acts submitting without meeting the above guidelines are generally ignored. We're not trying to be dicks, but if you send us a generic form-letter with your press release, and it doesn't even remotely concern a local artist or event, then you're not part of our core focus.
