History

Punkcast was started in September 1997 by Joly MacFie to cover the visit to NYC of punk band One Way System, in order to demonstrate the internet's broadcast potential to the band's manager John Bentham who had run Jettisoundz, a major creator/distributor of punk video in the UK.[1] In the early days the site covered old-school punk, but in 2001 MacFie started shooting the local indie scene, including the Moldy Peaches and Yeah Yeah Yeahs.[2] In 2002 he shot Joe Strummer's final USA shows in Brooklyn.[3] In 2003 - 2004 he supplied the majority of the programming for New York Noise - a local music show on the nascent municipal tv station NYC TV. [4] In September 2005 MacFie launched a video podcast.[2]
