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.

79 Turn It Up!

A new theme, the rationale for this one was tracks that have a great musical hook (something that draws you into the music straight away), are memorable (so you want to hear them again) and make you want to turn it up, to hear it better.  Despite my making a mistake about the broadcast time, because the UK had ended DST in the early hours of Sunday but the US would not do so until the next week, we had a great audience, and more people on the plaza than we’ve seen for some time.

The preshow was from my stash again, and ended with Robert Plant and the Sensational Space Shifters singing Turn It Up, which seemed only right.  Postshow was taken from some of the tracks that didn’t make it to the show, as usual, but we still have plenty left.  Let us know here if you liked it enough for us to do another similar show.

We also introduced an new feature (or possibly bug), Awful Warnings.   As the last track in the postshow, I put in a track from my folder of songs that you probably don’t want to hear twice.  At some time in the past someone will have requested these, at a disco or party.  The folder has novelty songs, over-the-top stuff and other strange items.  I think it’s wise to let them have an airing occasionally, in case they get bored and start trouble 😀

78 Lazy Days I

A change of pace with this set, as we gave you a show of slower numbers, but not without some excitement.

Preshow was once again from my stash (now into the J’s of this pass through one section – there are three more once I’ve finished this one) and picking slower tracks again, from Jethro Tull, Jeff Beck and Jimmy Giuffre.  The postshow was made up of tracks that didn’t make the cut for the show, because we’d used them before perhaps, or did not fit into the storyline I’d assembled.

Once again, we had 30 listeners at peak, which is very satisfying.  Of course, we would always like more 🙂

76: Let’s Eat – Breakfast

Something close to all our hearts (well, just below in fact), food, and being the first of several, this one’s about breakfast. In the preshow we had Alan’s Psychedelic Breakfast (I wanted to get that out of the way early) followed by some stuff from the H section of the stash, Hayseed Dixie and Huey Lewis.

The breakfast theme included Cyril Tawney’s Chicken on a Raft, a made-up sea shanty – Cyril served on diesel submarines – and includes some Royal Navy slang – a short glossary is included below

Chicken on a Raft = Fried Egg on fried bread
Jimmy = Jimmy-the-One = 1st lieutenant
Comic Cuts = A sailor’s personal file, record of service, misdemeanors etc.
Dabtoes = seamen (not specialist ratings), used the Foreward Mess
Dustmen = Engine Room specialist ratings (originally stokers), used the Aft Mess
middle, forenoon = watches
Whalin’ crew = Whaler’s Crew / Whaler = Ship’s boat
pusser = purser
DonnyB: Donnybristle in Fifeshire, not far from Rosyth dockyard

The postshow included some alternate takes (my, we are getting good at this) on songs from the show, plus a couple of ones that didn’t quite make it.

75 : Diamonds and Ice

The 75th show made use of the wedding-anniversary convention and had a theme of diamonds – which had to be augmented by ice (the slang term for diamonds, we are lead to believe).  A very wide-ranging selection was the result of combing all our stash for suitable candidates.  In the end we had enough to cover the pre- and post-show requirements as well.

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.

72 Gentle Giant

We were without Edison for this show, as he was having some well-earned time off.  The show was presented by me, AlanDJ, and I nearly always remembered to shut my mic off between announcements…

We got up to 20 listeners at one point, which was better than expected given that it is the first weekend of the British school holidays and the US folks have been on holiday for a while.  Thanks for listening, as always, and mention us to your friends…

Given that I was doing the broadcast all on my tod, I started the preshow early and also went on a bit longer with the postshow, moving on to game soundtrack music and then a ‘Fire’ theme.

Fire And Rain James Taylor  Sweet Baby James 1970

 

71 No More Fillers Any More

A fine time was had with our No More Fillers Any More show on Sunday 9th July.

Preshow is still from the G section, and the postshow was the Big Hits from the albums we had featured in the show.

Fewer tracks in this show as more of them were longish album tracks, and grouped in pairs.

15 listeners max, 13 for most of the time.

The next show will be a light frolic through the 10-year career of odball prog rockers Gentle Giant.
