I’ve been in contact with Steve from You’re Pretty via MySpace. He said they’ve been thinking about uploading the band’s music to iTunes, but there are some complications. He posted the following status update on the band’s page today:
Considering uploading cds to iTunes ..
He said he’ll post on the MySpace page if they’re able to work out the logistics and I will definitely pass that information along to everyone.
It’s Craig’s List week at http://www.savethescc.com. Fans of Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles are creating postings on the Los Angeles Craig’s List site all week to help spread the word about the show and the fan’s fight to get it back. The site sponsored a Craig’s List Day back in October and there were some really creative and fun ads. I’m looking forward to seeing them all.
And I thought I did everything right when I submitted the podcast feed. They don’t even tell you why. Here’s what they sent me:
Dear Podcast Owner
The following podcast has not been included in the iTunes podcast directory.
Name: Aztalan Turf
Feed URL: http://www.aztalanturf.com/feeds/podcast.xml
Submissions may not be included in the directory for a variety of reasons. For more information, please see the podcast technical specification at http://www.apple.com/itunes/podcasts/techspecs.html.
The iTunes Store Team
Sure would be nice if they even gave you a generic reason as to why the podcast was rejected. Even something like “Reason: Technical” would be helpful. I spent several hours on the document they linked and had the page open the whole time I was working on the RSS feed.
I filed a ticket with the iTunes Support Team, but I am not terribly optimistic that I’ll get any guidance. I’ll have to revisit everything and try again. I am not giving up! I WILL get into the directory, even if it takes me several tries.
