New jingles...niiiiiiice. Good job , Rob. I like. Smooth, classy, professional sounding.
Sympathise about the crowds and all, I prefer one on one contact with people, intimidates me too. Hey, don't be taking the mick out of people from the Midlands, okay. Nuff said. Hope you guys have a great time at Podcastcon, looking forward to hearing about it on TOTP. Mentioned you to DailyBuzz in reference to seeing if they were planning on doing a podcast. Sure enough they are, and they asked for some suggestions. I asked if they would do an item on podcasting, let's hope they do.
Great show. Cheers!

p.s. "Top...Ten" was better than this new countdown thing. Prefer the pregnant pause, soz.

Great job on the new jingles! Have to agree with PH on missing the top..........ten one, tho.

Have fun at podcastcon! I like conventions. Was going to go to the big anesthesia convention this year, but it was scheduled to be held in New Orleans. Oops. (They've moved it to Atlanta, but I already decided to wait until next year.)

I want to see pictures of you two dressed as Hank & Eugene!

Sorry I'm going to be boring and old. I don't like the new jingles as much as the other ones. I enjoyed the melodic harmony of the previous jingles.

Did a Google on "Top of the Pods" got some interesting hits, this was one of them.

Nice work with the new jingles, might take a little getting used to though. I had got quite attached to the old ones. ;)

I would quite like to go to Podcastcon but it's a bit too far for me to travel really. I would have to set off very early to get there at a reasonable time.

i like the new jingles, esp the intro...I got fed up of that "there's these 2 blokes, right..." & was fast forwarding it!

Nice jingles , and good list. Good start to the show with The Jam :-)
Dont worry about the show time Rob. An Idea that you could do at Podcastcon, is to record people saying "Tops of the Pods" etc and play the good ones during the show.
Thanks Rob n Jon

Darnit, what a day for my iPod to break!

Not only does Scott Sigler's Ancestor podiobook start coming out, but I miss the new jingles too.

I love the new jingles, especially the introduction featuring the King of Music Podcast, Mark Hunter Esq, the much maligned alleged alcoholic.

He's a top bloke and I can't wait to get his autograph at the conference this saturday.

Found an obscure beta site. What do you know, I posted TOTP and 2 other podcasts and now they are near the top for popular :-).
Head on over and register, it's good fun if nothing else.

I'm in two minds about the jingles, but then again I'm very set in my ways and I'm a swine to shift into accepting change !

I'm sure they'll grow on me. Doing my own podcast now means I appreciate the hard work that's gone into creating them - well done Rob.

Why not create another few using Jon's hiccupped speech ;-)
