This week’s episode includes a recap of my experience in Milwaukee last weekend seeing Walk Off The Earth in concert at the Pabst Theater. I also discussed another avenue for podcast subscription (especially via cars) through Stitcher. A final encouragement was given to ukulele beginners to just keep strumming.
Shout-outs came in triplicate this week to my mama, my brother, and a college friend!
This week’s episode had a two-for-one special for the artist highlight (Grace and Tony; Victoria Vox). Though not a ukulele band, Grace and Tony were highlighted because of the special shout-out below. Cold weather care was also discussed, along with a follow-up to last week’s mention of the Bushman Ukulele Contest.
Shout-out given to Infinity, an 8yr. old who wrote a music review for a concert she went to with her father. You can find her review about Grace and Tony on her father’s blog here. The review ended up making a big splash on a lot of blogs. Congrats Infinity!

As I was home with family for Christmas/New Year’s, this week’s episode involved a quick discussion about strumming options (using your hand or a pick).
Shout-out given to Julie, who commented on the blog that she had discovered the ukulele in a similar way to my own discovery. She now owns seven! If you haven’t seen the video we both saw, then you need to stop what you’re doing right now and watch it. I’m serious. It’s the first link listed below…
Welcomed my first guest on the show…my brother, Chad! If you noticed better quality to this week’s episode it’s because I was using his company’s podcast equipment. He wanted to give it a test run, and I was pleased to be his guinea pig. Thanks Chad! Actually, this whole episode seemed to be a family affair as my mother provided audio for my episode intro. Thanks Mama!
I also tested out a new tag-line for the podcast! Thanks to the suggestions from a few listeners, I was able to combine a few ideas. Tell me what you think of the new tag-line (and any other thoughts you may have) by leaving a comment below.
Hope you have a Happy New Year. Thanks so much for tuning in, and here’s hoping that you…stay in tune!
The topics for this week’s episode focused on highlighting the musical group Fruity Ukuladies and an overview of strumming and plucking technique.

Thanks for listening to Ukulele Lately!
**I made a mistake in listing the sizes of the ukuleles in this podcast. The correct order, from smallest to biggest, is: Soprano, Concert, Tenor, Baritone. Kudos to Patrik from Sweden for pointing out the error!
Things discussed in this introductory episode include: some biographical information about myself, my reasoning behind doing a podcast about the ukulele, and the implications behind the title Ukulele Lately.
