Deeper Shades of House Now On Your iPhone

DSOH on iPhonesA few of you might have already discovered the new link right underneath the LISTEN NOW button, suggesting iPhone users to click if they want to listen to the show.

When I finally got my iPhone a few weeks ago, I realized that with the missing flash player it was almost impossible to listen to the Deeper Shades of House show just by visiting
Of course, you could subscribe to the DSoH podcast, have iTunes sync with your iPhone and then listen to the show using the iPod player, but I wanted something a bit more immediate and something which also allowed new visitors to the site to get a taste of the show right away.

For that reason, I created a simple, fast-loading page that allows anyone with an iPhone to listen to anyone of the listed shows and stream it using wi-fi, 3G and even the Edge network (the latter is quite slow as you might know, so I don't really suggest it). Point your iPhone to and click on the desired show.

I also created a phone number for you to call to leave comments, suggestions, and shout-outs. Click on the number and the iPhone will dial it for you. This phonenumber is naturally available for all of you to use, iPhone owner or not. Feel free to leave a message at +1 (419) 844-6217.

If you own another type of smartphone, please let me know if you can stream the show using the same page, or - if you can - provide me with some more information about how I could enable you to listen to the show on your phone.

first Deeper Shades of House wallpaper
It'd be boring to just post the links to the wallpapers so I give you a bit of background of how edition #1 came about.

Kathy - for those who still don't know, my wife and creative brain behind most artwork and images you see on and Deeper Shades Recordings - discovered, a web app that creates pretty cool images based on text used in RSS feeds.
After playing around with it a bit, I posted my first result via my Twitter and my buddy @mika73 suggested it'd make a pretty cool wallpaper. I didn't wanna blow it up in size because it would be quite blurry so he hinted that I should just create different size images with a black background and copy the wordle image in the center of it. Simple and easy and the first sizes (1280x1024 and 1024x768) were completed. Another Twitter buddy @we5 sent me 2 more sizes (320x480 for the iPhone and 1440x900 for Macbook Pro's) after I posted the previous ones and here we are.

The first Deeper Shades of House wallpaper generated out of the text included in the podcast RSS in four different resolutions. These are completely free downloads for you, so get 'em, put 'em on your machines and send 'em to your friends who dig Deeper Shades of House as much as you do. :) ..

I know someone blogged about it somewhere :) . . . Followed closely by the 2nd hour of Classic House Special DSoH #200 and so forth. The additional views and clicks in this screenshot show how many people clicked back to the site from the podcast (via Itunes or other podcatchers).
