The Podcast is The Thing
The North Fulton Drama Club in Atlanta, Georgia http://www.northfultondramaclub.org has a really innovative podcast that now includes Magnatune music.
Thomas L. Strickland, artistic director for the “upstart” theatre company recently contacted us about including Magnatune music in the podcasts. The club had been using podcasts to accompany production progress since April of 2006 and wanted music to enhance the shows.
Since the play’s the thing, two of the podcasts were recorded for a spring production of Love's Labour's Lost. More have been produced for the group’s current show Twelfth Night, which just opened in October.
For their latest, the podcasters used remix of Lisa DeBenedictis’ Below http://www.magnatune.com/artists/lisa_debenedictis

Space Music NASA took the highest resolution
pictures ever obtained of two of the Universe's most-beautiful objects: the
Eagle Nebula and the Whirlpool Galaxy. By
projecting these amazing images on the planetarium dome along with the
compositions of our artists, the show is undoubtedly awe-inspiring.

A nice variety of Magnatune music was used for the presentation, from Celtic harpist Cheryl Ann Fulton
to the choral songs of the Ukrainian Saint Elijah Children’s Choir
