About

Sitting Duck Podcast artworkThe Sitting Duck Podcast (SDP) was originally published weekly from 2006 to 2010, featuring “podsafe” music. After undergoing a number of format changes, I fell off the wagon, since when it has been retired and relaunched a number of times.

What has remained relatively unchanged is the presence of between 5 and 8 songs per episode, which I play because I enjoy them. (With a single exception many years ago) every single song played is properly licensed. They used to be mostly sourced from dedicated podcast music licensors, and occasionally through personal contacts. These days, there is more ‘mainstream’ music but I’ll still dip back into my ‘podsafe’ catalogue from time to time. There are some real gems in there.

My favourite music styles are Pop, Rock and Acoustic, but I’ve also been known to play Alternative, Blues, Comedy, Country, Dance, Electronic, Folk, Funk, Groove, Holiday, Jazz, Lounge, New Wave, Reggae, R&B, Soul, Surf and World!
