82 Un-covered

For a change, sets of tracks that are linked by title only, everything else about them being different.  Once we started looking we found lots of candidates, so there will be more shows on this theme, unless you’d rather we didnt’…

The preshow contained one track excerpted from the main show, Dog Eat Dog by afrobeat legend Fela Kuti – at fifteen minutes it would have eaten into the time too much – and we overran as it was.

The show theme meant we had a wide variety of styles of music, showing off our ecelcticism if nothing else.  Unfortunately, some of the tracks turned out to be poor examples of the musicians talent, which we will try to correct next time.

Postshow was stuff from Mal’s stash, as he put the show together.

This will be the last show in 2017, as our next slot would be on Christmas Eve and we all plan to be busy then.  Have a great time over the holiday, and we’ll see  you on January 7th with a show paying tribute to all those musicians and performers we lost in 2017.

By The Book: Chapter II

Sunday, 26th of November, we will present our second show of songs inspired by literature. The selections are diverse in style, so we feel everybody will find something they do not like… and vice versa.

80 Biting The Hand That Feeds You

We got the glitches out of the way at the start, with Ed having to restart his systems to cure a problem – which it did, and we ran through without any difficulty after that.  I do wonder if we lost a few of our early starters though.  The show was a lot of fun and we got ourselves thoroughly mixed up at one point when working out who was going to talk next.  Only 21 listeners tops, which is down on recent shows, but it is European carnival season and perhaps that lured some away.  The cavern was quieter than usual too.

Interruptions to the broadcast will usually cause your player to disconnect from the stream, and you may well have to reconnect to the stream once it is back up.  There is a handy indicator on the radiofreedni.org home page that shows you if the stream is up or not.  Urutunes also has one.  Once you see the stream is back up, reconnect your player to the stream 🙂

Anyone who did drop off missed a successful show 🙂  Preshow was taken from my stash, now in the L’s and the postshow was stuff that didn’t quite make the cut.  It was a long show, and we sort of sneaked in one more track as the first of the postshow, announcing it at the end.  And overran a bit too.

Turn it Up!

Sunday, October 29th we will present a show of songs that have a hook that makes you turn up the volume. In selecting tracks, we were going for recognisability of the opening as well fingersnappability of the track. There may be a few surprises in there…

Remember that Europe goes off daylight saving that day, so for our American cousins, the show will be an hour later than usual.

See you in the Cavern,

Diamonds and Ice: The 75th Show

Sunday September 3rd we are going to celebrate our 75th outing with a show themed on diamonds and ice. Expect diversity! As usual, the show starts 1300 KI time, but pre-show will begin about half an hour earlier.

See you in the Cavern,

73 Rock Humour II: Turned Up To 11

Preshow was a selection from the G section of the stash, plus Hayseed Dixie to set the scene for the show. Postshow was stuff that didn’t quite make the grade for the show, plus a repeat of The Eagles’ Get Over It for AyaHawkeye who had the stream drop out for her during that track. 30 top, 26 most of the time.

The History of Creedence Clearwater Revival

As announced earlier, on Sunday we will present the history of CCR, from their beginning to the band’s untimely end. In the pre- and post-show bits there will be some rare live takes by the band, and solo material by John Fogerty. One of the shortest careers of any major Rock band, during their five years of existence, CCR have helped create the genre of modern Hard Rock, as well as their very own style, which was later titled Swamp Rock and given its epitaph by Southern Rock band Lynyrd Skynyrd with their song “Swamp Music,” commemorating the disbanding of CCR a year earlier. Did you ever wonder how such a successful band could go down the drain so quickly? Listen in and you’ll find out 🙂

See you in the Cavern,
