MediathekView: Der schnellste Weg zu “Das TalkGespräch” und anderen ö.-r. TV-Sendungen

29. Dezember 2014

MediathekViewAls ich heute den Mediathek-Link zu Olli Dittrichs großartiger neuer Sendung “Das TalkGespräch” postete, erinnerte mich mein Kollege Thomas Leidel an das sehr hilfreiche kostenlose Programm MediathekView (erhältlich für Windows, MacOS und Linux). Das habe ich früher mal beruflich getestet, seitdem aber aus den Augen verloren. Es durchsucht die Online-Mediatheken verschiedener Sender (ARD, ZDF, Arte, 3Sat, SWR, BR, MDR, NDR, WDR, HR, RBB, ORF, SF) und listet die gefundenen Sendungen auf. Per Mausklick können die gewünschten Sendungen angeschaut oder – das macht es besonders interessant – heruntergeladen werden.

A Funky Soul Christmas (Playlist & Videos)

My feelings towards Christmas are similar to The Grinch‘s (without the greedy aspect). The only thing I like about it are the holiday songs. Therefore I put together a Spotify playlist with great Christmas albums and compilations. Feel free to add yours – the list is shared.

For the visitors of River to River. Florence Indian Film Festival Irrfan Khan was the perfect guest: charming, funny and outspoken. I shot some clips during the Q&A sessions for the movies “Qissa” (with director Anup Singh) and “Paan Sing Tomar”, hosted by festival director Selvaggia Velo.

Crowdfunkin': Best of Current Funk (Spotify Playlist)

22. November 2014

“Uptown Funk” by Mark Ronson (feat. Bruno Mars) is one of the best current funk releases I have heard in a long time:

After mentioning this on Facebook, my funky friends recommended many other great acts to me. I threw in some additional favorites of mine and started a Spotify playlist. Put it into shuffle mode … and enjoy!

Augie’s gone. Where do the bop go?

26. Oktober 2014

With great sadness, I just became aware of the fact that singer, songwriter, performer and producer Augie Johnson has passed away on October 10, 2014.

I interviewed him in Los Angeles in 1982 after the album “Make Mine Bop” by Side Effects‘ side project L.A. Boppers blew me away. It featured one of my favorite jazz-funk-soul songs of all time: “Where Do the Bop Go”.
