Have any thoughts?

Very cool. Much easier for newbies who are "adubadub?" to find what they need to.

Nice work Michael.

I will miss that front page though, so many memories.

*deleted*

and now they're gone.

As said previously the client side code leaves some to be desired but thats not a big priority since it'll work cross platform/browser anyway (oh and who gives a shit about w3c validation really, clean code is more about making it easier to maintain as well as keeping the amount of tag soup to render to as little as possible).

The layout is perfect, easy to navigate and gets you right to the heart of things.

The design is spiffy but I feel that the site lost some of its personality, right now I get the feeling that it's a generic template (albeit a really good one).
This is mostly because the header graphics doesn't feel very talk show, sound, katg ish and could be used on any website really.

It is good to move away from centering on the ipod, should help new people browse the site with an open mind, not thinking you need an ipod specifically to enjoy the show.

One thing I would love to see added is pictures of the guests at the "Past Guests" sections. I feel its more enjoyable to listen to the show if you have a concept of how the person look.

And perhaps having a section on the front page with the latest big thing. Would be handy both for getting exposure (like the Canada trip, new items you can buy at the store and buying live shows). It also makes the users feel that the site is changing and that it's not just a static page you have no reason to go back to.

And creds to Michael for coding it and Rellek (I assume based on the graphics style) for designing it.

Edit* Didn't notice the google ads (adblocker took em away). Perhaps alter the color to a more fitting scheme, while maintaining some contrast to make sure people notice it.

Great looking site. I'm not gunna nit-pick the html - it runs on FireFox and my ad-blocker doesn't break it so it's all good Maybe for history's sake the old layout could go up somewhere as mentioned before. Lots of memories on that one.

One question though, Google Ads? Really? Here's one:

"Download MP3 Podcasts
Hundreds to choose from. Save 50% for a Limited Time only! "

What a steal! I better go buy me some of those podcasts!
