I'm celebrating ten years of my podcast "Club Kerry NYC" on Jan. 13, 2019. This began as a medium to share my mixes with friends across the U.S. where I have previously lived. I'd typically show up with a mix CD in N.C., Indiana, Michigan, New Jersey, but I moved to NYC!
Podcasting was an abysmal failing medium created by Apple that was in danger of disappearing due to low usage, so I was using it when nobody cared. My friends subscribed, then eventually thousands of people worldwide. I was taking a risk by uploading remixed music marketed to dance club DJ's with residencies in clubs around the country. Some superstar DJ's (Tiesto, Armin) were getting away with broadcasting their recorded live mixes and original sets as a podcast, thus stretching the copyright. Why couldn't I? Fan email: "Hey Kerry! When is the next mix episode? It's been over a week! Ugh. I need it now. Don't make me listen to Club Life! (Tiesto)." Somehow this insignificant podcast became more than just a little hobby! :)
10 Years of Stats:
- 6 million streams/subscribers/downloads;
- Listed "What's Hot!" by Apple;
- "Top Electronic Podcast" on Player FM last 3 years;
- Consistently ranked top 100 iTunes Music Podcast;
- "Featured" podcast on Castbox/NS Player/Stitcher/Tunr and others.
- Agents, artists, and record companies now send me unsolicited free promo music in hope that I will include the track(s) in my next mix! Some of them are borderline harassing me. They do not give up.
Big thanks to the fans around the world on every continent; country; island; land mass; ship in the middle of the ocean; archipelago; and remote African, Asian, Middle East, and Global South (Central/South American) locations that have subscribed and streamed this sound against all odds. I see you! - I am humbled.
I am unsure how long I will continue this podcast, and sometimes the mix episodes are not as frequent as past years, but as long as the creative musical desire continues, then so will my podcast. Write me at firstname.lastname@example.org. - Kerry Poynter
