one of my earliest musical memories right here... hippie music.
  Thu. 12/10/15 12:02pm Dean:

Never before realized how much John Denver sounds like Kate Wolf, songwriter-like, I mean.

That "Country Roads" has been a frequent ear worm my whole lofe, especially when I was a kid. Maybe that explains it...
  Thu. 12/10/15 12:04pm Marie:

I have never been to West Virginia. A good friend of mine loves it. I would definitely like to go there!
  Thu. 12/10/15 12:04pm Neanderthal Head:

Didn't the Denver hoard gas or somesuch in the Seventies? I remember some shameless slander on that score.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 12/10/15 12:05pm Stevel:

JD installed an underground fuel tank(s) at his Aspen spread in the midst of the gas crisis.
  Thu. 12/10/15 12:06pm r i s k y:

Yay! Chris and Kurt, what a tag team!!!
  Thu. 12/10/15 12:07pm Dean:

@Marie: If you visit WV, don't miss the tour of sites of coal mining disasters. Great for the family.

Minotaur Maximus!
  Thu. 12/10/15 12:09pm Neanderthal Head:

That's exactly it, Steve1, thanks. Will always love the guitar on that tune, whatever happens.
  Thu. 12/10/15 12:09pm Marie:

@ Dean--educational, eh? Maybe some of the dental clinics for the poor would be a good side trip, too. This is funny but also it makes me think of all the ways humans have mistreated animals... John Denver hoarding gas--funny.

@Kurt - Good deal. I figured you'd have things well in hand, but just making sure. Now I see what the GIF is up to. At first, it looked to me like a silly turkey or a bar-of-soap cozy.
  Thu. 12/10/15 12:24pm Dean:

Is this Mr. Nelson's tribute to Bill Nelson? Come to think of it, I'd love to hear Prince's cover of Be Bop Deluxe's "Futurama."
  Thu. 12/10/15 12:41pm PMD:

Really enjoying!

Oh, for f*ck's sake! I dash away from the office for a few minutes and I miss Sequentia!
Avatar Thu. 12/10/15 1:33pm Mark Helsten:

You will have to listen to the archive, Dean!
  Thu. 12/10/15 1:34pm Dean:

It reminds me to pull their remarkable Aquitania album, a Christmas record like no other. Everybody should hear the closing track, "Plebs Domini." It's stunning.
Avatar Thu. 12/10/15 1:35pm Cecile:

otherwise occupied probably = paying gig!
  Thu. 12/10/15 1:35pm Dean:

Yep, Mark. Archives or personal library copy. Or, what the heck, both!

I need to dig into the archives... 100s of hours of Minotaurs I have not heard!
  Thu. 12/10/15 1:41pm Dean:

Really, listeners, set aside seven minutes for "Plebs Domini": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=86eJ6ptzkSs It ain't your father's medieval music.

thanx Dean - will explore!

Darn, Mark. I can't find another source. Sorry.

Does Pontiac make a small car?

What's the name of the thingee that you can connect to your computer that transmits a radio signal you can use throughout your home, so you can stream music from your computer onto radios in the vicinity?
  Thu. 12/10/15 2:23pm Dean:

Bluetooth?

@(Eyepatch) Fox: or are you talking about one of those FM transmitter doo-hickies that transmit over regular FM so you can use a standard radio?
  Thu. 12/10/15 2:26pm Clay:

Chalky, I love you, man.
Avatar Thu. 12/10/15 2:26pm βrian:

Airport Express offers that function, I think.

Beat me to it, Rich in WA. I missed the radio part.

Rich - yes.
Avatar Thu. 12/10/15 2:32pm (Eyepatch) Fox:

Wow, that was simple! Amazing the different results I get now that I'm looking for an FM transmitter. Last night I tried "radio transponder" and got a lot of weird stuff. Thanks!

Happy Birthday, Robert!
Avatar Thu. 12/10/15 2:38pm (Eyepatch) Fox:

Hmmmmm. If I get an FM transmitter that's used in cars, do you think that would that have enough range for my entire apartment?
  Thu. 12/10/15 2:41pm Clay:

Listening at work. I remember doing pirate radio in Tampa in the late-'90's. Just wondering as to the status of pirate stations today in NY/NY and beyond? Seems FMU listeners would be aware of such things. Our old station, 97X used to get raided by the FCC. Then the station would hold a multi-band benefit to buy a transmitter and set up shop again. We even broadcast from a laundry room back then. Totally fun. At one point the FCC was going to issue micro-broadcaster licenses, but that talk seemed to fade away.
Avatar Thu. 12/10/15 2:43pm (Eyepatch) Fox:

Whoah. Hey, check it out, erotic cyrillic alphabet! bturn.com...
  Thu. 12/10/15 2:43pm Dean:

If it's like this one, (Eyepatch) Fox, probably not: http://www.monoprice.com/Product?p_id=10402&gclid=CJK6-cCG0skCFYlafgodvLgE5A Range is 5 meters. You'd need a repeater, which suggests you might as well go for a whole house device.
  Thu. 12/10/15 2:48pm Marie:

Were those classic 80s production values on that Rand and File song?
Avatar Thu. 12/10/15 2:48pm (Eyepatch) Fox:

Thanks Dean! Yes, the problem seems to be that most of these are made for cars, where range isn't really an issue. I figure its the best method to get music all over my apartment playing at the same time, while allowing me the fun of buying neat old radios! I'm just going to have to find one not designed for cars, which is proving difficult.

listener ike is our expert on the local pirate scene

sometimes interfere with wfmu's 1500 w. signal
  Thu. 12/10/15 2:50pm Dean:

Well, there's this one nominally for the "whole house" (150 ft. radius): http://sourcefmtransmitter.com/shop/whole-house-fm-transmitter-3/?gclid=CPOC_pGI0skCFZBhfgodgV0GLQ
Avatar Thu. 12/10/15 2:51pm Rich in Washington:

@(Eyepatch) Fox: I've used quite a few of them. In my experience, most are really anemic output-wise, due to FCC restrictions. I think C Crane makes a pretty OK 'whole house' transmitter.
  Thu. 12/10/15 2:52pm Dean:

Played Laura Cantrell during the last road trip with the family. Have to pick up this album, though.
  Thu. 12/10/15 2:52pm Clay:

Thanks Tony. I'll ask him about it. Used to be one in Williamsburg back in the day. Not sure if it still exists.
Avatar Thu. 12/10/15 2:52pm northguineahills:

Thanks Kurt, gotta boogie away!

Micropower is still limited to 0.1 w. For instance see Skylands Radio in High Point NJ.
  Thu. 12/10/15 2:55pm Listener Robert:

I'm told 100 mw isn't even enough to penetrate the rain shield in bldgs.
