There is a lot of great Creative Commons licensed music out there, but it can be hard to find things that you like. Grant Robertson started a podcast at the beginning of this year called CC:365 where every day for a year he would post a CC-licensed song. I listened from the beginning and wrote a fan letter and then found out that Grant was moving up to Halifax, which is close to me and where I work every day. Things were rolling along quite well, but after 142 days and 143 songs (one was a preview) there was a bit of a break and Grant asked for help with the podcast and I eagerly jumped in and now there are 5 people doing it as a team that rotates the awesome power and responsibility of picking songs. I’m coming up to the end of my first round of picks and I love it. I’ve been able to convince three new people to officially release Creative Commons licensed tracks, so I feel as if I’ve really accomplished something. Now I have about a month to come up with another seven picks, so I’ve got to keep looking.
