"Motorola recently revealed plans to distribute a podcast for ROKR owners. While that may sound like a “me too,” the podcast comes with a unique extra twist — it contains legitimately-licensed music by signed acts. The podcast was originally slated to go live on Monday, though the company still has a “coming soon” notice on its site. The transmission was recorded in New York in September, with hip-hop star Common and DJ Gilles Peterson emceeing the experience. It takes place at a time when digital deals to allow legitimate music use in podcasts are in their infancy, giving Motorola a nice window to “shape the future” of the medium. Meanwhile, these types of licenses for digitally-distributed music content were directly encouraged by the European Commission as part of its recent recommendations for a pan-European music licensing system.
Following the release, two more podcast updates are planned. In one, music writer Robert Elms and DJ Bobby Friction talk listeners through London’s most influential music venues. The third update features DJ/actor/MC Ramon Rodriguez and journalist Tom Terrell on a tour of New York's five top nightspots. Elsewhere, Seattle-based mobile music provider Melodeo has furthered its entrance into mobile-based podcasting, or "mobilcasting". The company recently made its Mobilcast application available for the RAZR, ROKR, and 5 other phones by Nokia and Samsung, part of an expansion that also includes new podcasting content. "Our catalog of podcasts is growing at an amazing rate," said Stan Sorensen, senior director of Product Management & Marketing at Melodeo."
