I like imagining where they are
Avatar Mon. 5/5/14 7:07pm northguineahills:

Love the shipping forecasts.
Avatar Mon. 5/5/14 7:08pm People Like Us:

do people in the US know about these UK shipping forecasts? I have no way of knowing... I gave some to Ken once
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 5/5/14 7:08pm dale:

I remember catching some UK shipping forecasts on the shortwave radio I got for my 11th bday when I was in Japan.

(not a radio geek).
Avatar Mon. 5/5/14 7:13pm People Like Us:

ah very nice
Avatar Mon. 5/5/14 7:14pm People Like Us:

oh look, two of you just said "Japan" at the same time

Dagnabit! I forgot about the show 'til now. Stupid monday brain!
Avatar Mon. 5/5/14 7:14pm Rich in Washington:

Are you going to play all of 9 Beet Stretch tonight?
Avatar Mon. 5/5/14 7:15pm People Like Us:

that's OK, you just missed a load of horn honking
Avatar Mon. 5/5/14 7:15pm People Like Us:

I would if my show was longer
Avatar Mon. 5/5/14 7:15pm northguineahills:

I've been wanting to hear Harbour Symphony since I read about a year or two back.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 5/5/14 7:15pm dale:

turned on the shortwave recently and reception was awful. then i shut off the lights, which are fluorescent bulbs. and shut off the wifi. and shut off the tv. and things started to come alive.
Avatar Mon. 5/5/14 7:16pm Rich in Washington:

You could do it in installments.
Avatar Mon. 5/5/14 7:16pm People Like Us:

yes, remote controls make radios go crazy too
ok, this is instalment number 1
Avatar Mon. 5/5/14 7:22pm People Like Us:

I'm making you all go very quiet
  Mon. 5/5/14 7:23pm cloudnein:

we turned off our radios and wifi ;D (seriously, I'm using wifi provided by the train, which is spotty)
Avatar Mon. 5/5/14 7:24pm People Like Us:

yes, train wifi isn't quite there yet
Avatar Mon. 5/5/14 7:24pm People Like Us:

I'd be very impressed if you did all switch off your wifi
Avatar Mon. 5/5/14 7:28pm Rich in Washington:

Oh oh. Our dial slipped to a classic rock station!
Avatar Mon. 5/5/14 7:28pm People Like Us:

playing radio on the radio
  Mon. 5/5/14 7:29pm cloudnein:

that and I contacted WFMU to get my "Heart" for live playlists (I donated during the pledge drive, just hadn't set up an account; yay for the Chart Sweep CD!)

Love the radio interference sound! Took me a minute to realize I can't turn the tuning knob on my MBP.
Avatar Mon. 5/5/14 7:29pm People Like Us:

I wonder if anyone is retuning their radio
Avatar Mon. 5/5/14 7:30pm Rich in Washington:

This is kinda like those Sublime Frequency 'Radio..' series, only in America. I wonder if hipsters would collect these in Syria, Thailand.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 5/5/14 7:30pm Andrew Waterloo:

There's one thing you can say about train wifi... you can really pass a 2 hour trip quickly if you're really focused on trying to get it to work.
Avatar Mon. 5/5/14 7:30pm People Like Us:

oh, glad you got Chart Sweep
Avatar Mon. 5/5/14 7:30pm Rich in Washington:

Poor WBAI. Such a sad story.
Avatar Mon. 5/5/14 7:32pm Adrian:

As a brit it's weird to hear you guys talk about the shipping forecast as something strange. That brings me straight back to my childhood on the south coast.
  Mon. 5/5/14 7:33pm MrFab:

Sadly things haven't changed much since Cage and Feldman had this conversation. I like that idea, of having ambient music in public instead of blaring pop. But like Cage using these bad experiences to create his radio music, I took a horrible Pussycat Dolls song I was subjected to while trying to eat my pizza by making a mashup with it. I got my revenge!
Avatar Mon. 5/5/14 7:34pm People Like Us:

yes, mashups made me like a lot of things I'd not have liked otherwise
  Mon. 5/5/14 7:35pm cloudnein:

Mashups are how I stay "hip".
  Mon. 5/5/14 7:38pm cloudnein:

F=MA, yo! Gotta go, listening on my phone using the WFMU app. :) TTYL!
Avatar Mon. 5/5/14 7:38pm People Like Us:

byee!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 5/5/14 7:39pm dale:

getting creeped out by this. thanks!
Avatar Mon. 5/5/14 7:40pm People Like Us:

ha sorry
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 5/5/14 7:41pm dale:

are you kidding? how often does radio (or television or writing or...) move one to some kind of feelin?
Avatar Mon. 5/5/14 7:42pm People Like Us:

true
  Mon. 5/5/14 7:43pm cloudnein:

Record scratch, tape stretch, cd bit rot. Lost sounds! Jean-Michel Jarre used the "cell phone interference" sound in a song. :)
  Mon. 5/5/14 7:44pm cloudnein:

David Rothenberg, google him
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 5/5/14 7:45pm dale:

i have some turkeys that started coming here in the winter for seed and still come back. such an ungainly creature, but i agree with mr. franklin - they should be out national bird.

Avatar Mon. 5/5/14 7:49pm People Like Us:

yes, well you and WFMU :)

Avatar    Mon. 5/5/14 7:52pm ranjit:

too slow to tune in....
Avatar Mon. 5/5/14 7:52pm People Like Us:

the collective knowledge at WFMU is amazing - this playlist I'm doing has an autopredict for what song entry you are about to do - and no matter how original I think I am I always find it predicting what I'm going to play, ie someone has played it before on the station
Avatar Mon. 5/5/14 7:52pm People Like Us:

and that is a gooooood thing
Avatar Mon. 5/5/14 7:53pm MikeY:

opps double post sorry we have hundreds of wild turkeys arround where I live some are so huge they will fly into cars and really do some major damage
MY boss 700 dollars to repair his grate on his truck

great show this week.
Avatar    Mon. 5/5/14 7:54pm ironybread:

Once I've downloaded this broadcast, what ratio should I use to speed-compress the entire show to hear the secret message that's been playing underneath the whole time?
Avatar Mon. 5/5/14 7:54pm MikeY:

Im getting hungry for some bird right now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 5/5/14 7:54pm dale:

.......not that they aren't every week.....just exemplary this week for my personal wacky tastes.
Avatar Mon. 5/5/14 7:55pm People Like Us:

thanks, trying to do something different each week
Avatar Mon. 5/5/14 7:57pm MikeY:

One of my favorite is one you did using Glenn Campbell in mashup I dont have it now but wish I did.
Avatar Mon. 5/5/14 7:57pm People Like Us:

ah yes I remember that - I put it on one of my end-of-season downloads
Avatar Mon. 5/5/14 7:58pm People Like Us:
