First episode up and available for download!
The first episode features a special interview with Tiki Kiliki, the producer of the Hukilau and an audio trip to the Tiki-Ti bar in Los Angeles.

Nice work !

The Ooga Booga chant from the Tiki Ti is especially entertaining.

Thanks! More exciting episodes are in the works!!

Wow...and it's even an "enhanced" podcast! Nicely done..great sound...I even learned a few things. I also enjoyed the sounds of Tiki Ti being someone who's never had the experience. Now I REALLY want to go.

Digi,

Nicely done!

Ditto the above comments! And the sound quality is good too. That's always a plus. Looking forward to more!

Kenike,
Thanks! Yeah, I wanted to try to capture the feel of just sitting at the bar. I'm gald you liked it. I wasn't sure if people would like that part of the podcast or not.

D

THanks Vic! I'm a fan of your podcast! I've got every episode saved in my iTunes!

Had a chance to listen to this last night... very, very enjoyable! Well-done.

I liked it too. Good flow, and mix of new and old. Have to listen once more, because one track was especially awesome and I can’t remember the artist right now (I was working along).

Great listen!!

Your production quality and style give it a very Public Radio feel which I love!

It's very polished.

Thanks!

New episode available now!

BRAVO on episode 1. The ambient recording of Tiki-Ti made me feel like I was there; huzzah! Fantastic idea and fantastic tunes. Sound quality is excellent as well. Thanks for this podcast, my subscription awaits the next episode...

Mahalo!

Hey DigiTiki, we really enjoyed the 2 Quiet Village podcasts. Keep 'em comming.

Thanks for the kind words! Got episodes 3 & 4 in the works with more interviews and some rare exotica as well!!

Gratefully recieved, much appreciated.

Good stuff, keep em coming!

D

I've got a killer interview with Tikiyaki of the Tikiyaki Orchestra in the upcoming QUiet Village #3 along with a rare, unreleased Tikiyaki Orch. track!! I must-have! New episode will be posted May 1.

Thank you, Digitiki - Your podcast sounds great, and fills a void left by the retirement of Vegas Vic's Tiki Lounge. Look forward to future installments. Many kudos to you!

Yeah, I just notices that Vic is no more! It sad because his web radio station on Live365.com was what fueled my vintage exotica collecting bug! Vic, You did a great job!!!

D

Episode 3 now up and running--featuring interview with Jim Bacchi of Tikiyaki Orchestra + super rare unreleased Tikiyaki Orch. track!

To Boss:

Gone to the Quiet Village. Be back much later....very possibly, we'll see.

Just finished listening to #3. Loved the music. Love the relaxed tone of your voice. Good interview with Jim Bacchi.The interview element sure does a lot to make a show more interesting. The only problem we have is that the show is too short.:D

The Hoptiki's

D

Yeah I toyed with the idea of making the show longer. I was just paranoid that it would be too big of a file to download. Would an hour be about right?

Another nice set, thanks muchly!

An hour sounds good to me. MrHoptiki says two! But honestly, the podcast must be a lot of work to put together. Whatever you decide, just keep doin it :D.

Hi Digitiki!
Bravo on the podcasts!
Re: the length... I routinely download a daily radio show that runs near 1-hour segments (via iTunes) and have no problems with that.

That being said... the longer the podcast is, the more I tend to put off listening due to the time commitment. My suggestion would be keeping it between 30 and 60 mins; that way it doesn't take as long to create or listen to... and therefore frequency might increase!

I freely admit that Tivo and iPods are shortening my attention span far more than MTV ever could. :) Am loving the sound quality and sets - keep up the fine work!

Best,
Rupe

D

Thanks! Got some killer shows in the works...rare tunes and I'm in the process of lining up some more interviews! Stay tuned.

Digitiki~

THANK YOU!

Now that Coconut Wired and Vegas Vics are no longer pod casting, and Radio Bamboo never got past episode 3, I was getting worried about getting my exotica Podcast fix!

Great podcast! Really like the format. I think the length of more towards 60 mins is good. (I like a good long show to listen to while working). Exotica info, fantastic music, old and new, plus interviews from exotic locations with key members of the tiki tribe - really great!

Will you be doing any casting from any big events? It'd be great for us who live out here on volcanic islands, and can't get to them!

Keep it up!

D

Yes! in fact, I'm planning on bringing my field recorder to Hukilau this year and doing several interviews and soundscapes across a couple of episodes at least. I'm planning on an all-Hukilau 2008 episode.

An Tikioasis?

Digitiki
I can't thank you enough for the incredibly cool podcast! I've listened to the first 3 episodes over and over, and I can't wait for future episodes. Please, please, please keep it up. I know it must be an incredible amount of work, but thought I'd let you know how much it's appreciated. Sound quality is excellent, and the atmosphere and mood you've created is fantastic. Great work my friend!

I just wanted to chime in here and let everyone know that episode 4 is completed, but I'm in the middle of moving, so my internet is cut off until the first. I try to post 2 episodes a month, but #4 looks like its going to be pushed back until the first week of June. I've had some emails from people worried that I had stopped. Rest assured, I have some great episodes coming up. Number 4 is a fun one--spotlight on Japanese CD reissues of vintage Hawaiian LPs. There are some real rare treasures in it. So hang in there.

Thanks for the update! I'm really looking forward to it.

Podcast #4 is posted...it automatically downloaded yesterday (Tuesday the 27th) when I opened my iTunes. Haven't listened to it yet, though...can't wait!

I've tried to download it through iTunes for the last couple of days. It keeps saying that the file may be corrupted. The other episodes have been fine....any ideas??? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I'm having similar issues :(

Yeah i don't think anything but the title of the podcast is actually posted yet.

I love these podcasts, but I'm having problems with 4 too.

Podcast alley shows the file size as 47.5Mb, but when I download I get about 20Mb of file, and an error message when I try to play.

RB

As I said in my previous post, I hadn't listened to #4 yet...and encountering the same issues as everyone else. It's about a 20 mb file, and after it's done downloading, it's nowhere to be found. So until Digitiki says it's ready, I'd recommend stopping the automatic iTunes download.

Yep same probs here, been keen to hear the next show but no luck with itunes.

D

Sorry about that folks. I've been in the middle of moving to a new hut. So my internet has been cut off. I can only check my email and occasionally Tiki Central at work. I tried to get #4 episode up and running on a friend's computer and screwed it up somehow. I should be all moved in in the next 5 days and my first order of business is to re-upload the episode and get that working. Sorry about all the error messages.

Man, having no internet is light having your right arm cut off!!!
