Free Podcast Music: All Week

Another Royalty Free track for Podcasters and Video Podcasters. The song is called “All Week” which I created for a video but didn’t work out in the end. It’s got a very urban beat and a lot of change-ups. You can use these tracks in your podcast shows without repercussion. I ask you link back to either www.geekazine.com or www.howtorecordpodcasts.com on your sites and the theme title with @geekazine or @RecordAPodcast in your credits. If you would like to use these tracks outside of podcasting (commercial film or TV), you must get written permission. Contact me to find out how. Like what you read?...
