Radio On

Since I've been working a lot with digital audio lately, I figured it was time to reacquaint myself with RealAudio and, in the process, offer up some actual music for your listening enjoyment.

Specifically, I've put up one of my old radio shows from when I used be a Record Hospital DJ on WHRB. It's one of only three or four (out of ~50) show tapes that I've gotten around to digitizing -- at two hours per show, it's kind of tedious and time-consuming. But the reward is that I get a bunch of new music to listen to on my iPod, given that almost half of what I played was from vinyl and would therefore not be part of my MP3 collection.

Links to listen to the show in whole or in part are below, so check it out now while you can. That's right, I'm not keeping this one up for too long. Even though ASCAP and BMI collected their broadcast royalties the first time around when this was originally aired, and it's streaming (not downloadable) audio, I'd hazard that it's still not 100% kosher to post.

The show was randomly chopped into three rather large segments so I didn't have to upload a single 200 MB file to the server. However, I've provided a playlist below, noting DJ breaks so you can fast-forward through those. (Yes, I already know I talk too much -- I don't mean to inflict it upon you!) Each artist name links to a page or site elsewhere that I thought might prove useful if you're looking for more info.

Now onto the music...

Listening to your show right now. Wish it were live so that I could win those Swirlies tickets. The digital transfer is super. The microphone is so warm. Is that a Sennheiser? You sound sultry. Yowsa!
