WebProNews reports that a new site called PodBop makes it easier to know what's going on musically in your community. Shel Holtz says he thinks applications like this will help increase the number of people using podcasts.
But, it's going to take work on the part of club owners, musicians and listeners to make this kind of thing work. A PodBop search on Charlottesville turns up nothing, but a search for Richmond pulls up mp3s from acts soon to appear at Alley Katz. This is a great idea, but there are so many great ideas out there and only so much time.
