Making your ears stand up and listen
I uploaded an hour of content that will play at 12, 3, 6, 9 AM and PM Friday and Saturday.
@chris: My day is already off to an excellent start. Thanks!
@Cat Chew: HaHa! Boogie Kitty is back! You lucked out tuning in during the test hour.
Just had to mention again that I’m glad BRR is back. I just did the binge thing. Five hours of eclectic and delightful suits me. Thanks! And here’s hoping Live365 stays healthy.
@Cat Chew: Is it now, “All good things in excess?”
@chris: It’s not illegal, immoral or fattening, and I’m gonna indulge.
Hey, you got a new playlist already? 🙂
@Cat Chew: I’ve put up 7 more hours worth of music this weekend and would like to get at least 20 more in the next couple days. I’m going to put it on autopilot so you will get lots of music, 4 minutes of commercials per hour and short station breaks 20 seconds or less.
To put in in context, I’ve uploaded 1Gb of music. I have 25 available with the plan I’m on, so look out, there will be more music than ever before. Trying to figure out how I can keep track of it with the tools I currently have. They are making improvement by the day so it’s a real adventure at this point.
Swinging the Ls? Fun!
@Cat Chew: You caught me! When I started back 2 weeks ago I had no idea what I had in the library, two years wipes a lot away. So, I started the library by Artist and started working my way down the list. I’ve been doing a new 5 hour playlist everyday since.
Today I hit the W’s. There’s not enough left to do another 5 hour playlist so I’ll have to go back to my scientific method to build future lists. I’ve got to get a bunch of new music as I hadn’t had a reason to buy any. I’ve been using iTunes and Amazon to check out new albums when I hear about them.
Chris, It’s great that your music station is back!
I missed your testing hours, but when I noticed the little blue
radio icon, over on the news blog had changed, I figured something was up.
Since the 20th, mostly on weekends, I’ve enjoyed your unique mix.
mmmm good. 🙂
Thanks John. It all happened so fast I couldn’t believe it at first. Still learning the new system and a new way of approaching programming. Thanks for listening!
Is this thing on?
I see from the playlist that I just missed hearing Swing Guitars, Django Reinhardt & Stéphane Grappelli. Serendipitously, I had just run across this tidbit on Open Culture, thought I’d pop it in here, just in case you’d like to hear it:
Lost Recording of Pink Floyd Playing with Jazz Violinist Stéphane Grappelli on “Wish You Were Here”
Jazz ‘Hot’: The Rare 1938 Short Film With Jazz Legend Django Reinhardt
Jazz is Good : )
I still haven’t replaced my Pink Floyd 12″ Albums with CD’s
The turntables are still working, so there is no need i guess.
thanks for the links, that 1938 short film is cool.
I didn’t want to migrate to CDs, in fact I was pretty determined not to buy any (“The turntables are still working, so there is no need” is a good motto) but then Elektra released Rubáiyát: Elektra’s 40th Anniversary set and refused to make a vinyl edition. Felt like a sucker but I couldn’t resist.
Glad you liked the short.
