48 Connections 1 – The Clapton Complex

A new idea here, to explore by means of songs the connections between various artists and albums.  At the center of this first collection is Eric Clapton, but the connections are sometimes not obvious.  Mal has now posted a little bit more of his research findings…

Preshow and postshow continue the theme with more related tracks.

16 listeners for the majority of the show with a peak of 25 and 23 at the end.  I think lots of people were enjoying the holidays and only joined us later – but that’s fine, as long as you were entertained.

As there were several folks wanting more, I carried on with some stuff from my stash in a post-postshow show.  I managed a peak of 14 listeners with 9 for most of the time, despite you having to restart your music player and re-find the stream.  Some people reported that if they used the Urutunes link, they got a repeat of the just-broadcast show, whereas if they used the link from the radiofreedni.org site (this site) they got the new stream.  We must investigate.

  • Concerning the “lag” for those who experienced it, I suspect they were using the web player; that would have cached the stream within the browser cache and then played it back soon as the player got the signal from the server to resume playing. WMP and iTunes also use a cache, but normally refresh as soon as a stream is re-acquired. So, if all those who had that phenomenon were using the web player, that would explain it.
