Im not sure if its the right forum to write about it. But wouldn't be great to have java radio? I mean, a real internet radio with
Java music, Java discussions and Java people? Is it worth thinking of? What do you think?

I don't know what you mean by 'java music' - and doesn't this site as-is already provide java discussions by java people?

or do you mean real live streaming audio of people talking about java?

The problem there is who has the time to be the 'host'?

A JavaRanch Podcast might be a somewhat interesting idea to entertain.

fred, "java music" it could be everything, but maybe java people have some common tunes? It would be great to know.
Yes, i meant steaming audio. I could be opportunity to teach Java different way. Video podcasts are there but its often a single
lecture which engage all attention and time. Radio makes you free to do everything while listening.

We talked about this once before.

The idea is that we would have four or five staffers call into a conferencing system and then talk about some topic. Then another. And maybe another. The conferencing stuff generates and mp3. Then make the MP3 available for download.

Classics such as:

I Just Want to be Your Interface

You Ain't Nothing but a Memory Hog

When Will I Compile You Again?

Voulez-vous pair program avec Moi, Ce soir?

and

Everybody Makes a Tool, Sometime

That would be nice, those mp3. Is it really going to happen or is it just a thought?

Bear, we also can't forget about those:

Something happened on the heap.
You're making me static.
Hold my reference.
Don't let your exception fall on me.
Shake that class.
From the bottom of my stack.

Heres a new one on the block

I cannot hide it, no more can I act,
Without you my class is abstract.

Whether it is destiny or it is fate,
without you I cannot instantiate.

You took care of me, when i was sick,
my collections are now neat and generic.

this songs been sung, its been read,
now come on baby, lest start a new thread.

The Java Posse is probably the most famous Java podcast.
