Codex is a weekly music podcast hosted by Jean Snow, recorded in Tokyo, Japan.
A long, long time ago in a country far, far away (that would be Canada) he used to have a college radio show. He had two of them, actually, first when he was truly a university student — believe it or not, it was called The Jean Snow Show — and then 10 years ago when he was back in Canada for a year, he did another show on the same station (CKUM) which he decided to call Codex (for reasons that have long been forgotten). He’s long missed those days of hosting a weekly music show — in a proper studio — and although he can’t replicate that same environment, he’s recently started doing similar but on the net, in podcast form.
He’s also co-host of Radio OK Fred — along with Editions OK FRED’s Yoshi and Ay2 — but this is something he does on his own, although he’s not opposed to the occasional guest. Recording of the show is done live in one take using the Djay software on a MacBook Pro, using the Zoom H2 Handy Recorder as a mic.
The show itself is a weekly mix of 10 tracks he’s into, and it is usually recorded at home, but occasionally at various spots, including Cafe Pause. You can subscribe to an RSS feed of the episodes, so as not to miss any.
