I wish shopping stores still played music like this in em. I remember when it was like this.. miss those days

Hi GeorgyGirl and Hi-Waisted Modernists!!
Avatar Wed. 11/6/19 3:07pm worldsworstrecords:

I am loving this!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/6/19 3:07pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

After I did all the vaporwave editing, I got this ridiculously brilliant plugin called Izotope (?) Vinyl, and one of the things it can do is warp the crap out of music ;-) So that's the wonkiness you can hear. the rest is all speed and bass cut and reverb :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/6/19 3:07pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Glad you like it :-) I had sooo much fun doing this :-)
Avatar Wed. 11/6/19 3:07pm Rocky Horror:

I've just sent a 'clean' version of tonight's WWRRS to the guys at WFMU for the archive: should be available to stream soon
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/6/19 3:12pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I was reading up on the subject and apparently malls had a reverb button that they could crank up depending on how many people were there. Plus they divided their cassettes up into shopping segments, so they would get more hectic at certain times of the day. All fascinating stuff :-)
Avatar Wed. 11/6/19 3:12pm worldsworstrecords:

Listening to this brings to mind my all-time favourite Twilight Zone episode

There's that great scene in "Messiah of Evil" as well in the supermarket :-)

ah well... whatever will be, will be
Avatar Wed. 11/6/19 3:14pm Mr Fab:

Love this! I agree, this is much preferred over the bad top 40 pop blaring out of stores nowadays. I literally sometimes bring headphones when I have to go grocery shopping.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/6/19 3:14pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

This is making me very nostalgic for childhood Christmasses
Avatar Wed. 11/6/19 3:15pm worldsworstrecords:

I can see that
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 11/6/19 3:15pm Rich in Washington:

I loved the supermarkety scene in Messiah. I also love 70s-looking supermarkets, so there's that.
Avatar Wed. 11/6/19 3:15pm worldsworstrecords:

This might just be my favorite episode or HWM to date
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 11/6/19 3:16pm Rich in Washington:

That K-Mart reel seems like a more up-to-date version of the music on the Seeburg 1000 live streaming jukebox.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/6/19 3:16pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

They always seemed low and long when I was a child - that great architecture :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/6/19 3:16pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Oh, thank you, Darryl! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 11/6/19 3:16pm Rich in Washington:

I got called away to a company meeting. Sounds like the streaming issues got sorted out.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/6/19 3:17pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

That was my favourite bit right there ;-)

i like how this has real store ambiance to it. Pardon me - could you direct me to men's wear?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 11/6/19 3:18pm Rich in Washington:

Loved that bing bong ID.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/6/19 3:18pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I made myself smile with that ;-)

the Von Trapps will be turning in their graves (well, the dead ones, obvs)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/6/19 3:19pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Slow it down, take all the bass out, and apply a crap ton of reverb. Then warp it to high heaven. :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/6/19 3:19pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Are any of them still alive?
Avatar Wed. 11/6/19 3:20pm worldsworstrecords:

Probably not...
Avatar Wed. 11/6/19 3:22pm worldsworstrecords:

Apparently the youngest, Johannes, is...he's 80

God, he must have been tiny, bless him.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/6/19 3:23pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

So far I don't have the urge to buy anything so the subliminals must be weak in this one ;-)

Although weirdly I ... MUST ... KILL!!!

I've just read that he was born in 1939 when the family were touring the States, so after the period in which the film is set. I bet he never sang Do Re Mi in his life!

It still amazes me that they managed to make such a cheerful film about something so terrifying!

off to get a cuppa... back in a bit

Don't forget the biscuits!
Avatar Wed. 11/6/19 3:28pm Mr Fab:

This is kind of ominous, actually. Are we trying to scare the shoppers out of the store?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/6/19 3:28pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Oh my God - I've just looked out the window and someone's put their bloody Christmas lights up.

Hi DJGH I feel like I am listening to Radio 390 from Shivering Sands in the mid 60's. Excellent! PS emailed you for the We Transfer link to Monday's LHT but something bounced. :-(
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/6/19 3:29pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Mr Fab - I did realise about halfway through editing that I could have done this in October. ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/6/19 3:29pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Hi Dave! It bounced? That's a bit naughty :-(

There was a furniture store near the big Safeway when I was a kid and they had jars full of those sugar sticks (like candy canes without the hook). I always got a maple sugar one when we went there. This is making me want a time machine so I can go back and get one.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 11/6/19 3:41pm Rich in Washington:

Been watching this series of videos on YouTube about Top of the Pops by year and one of them had a great breakdown of what Light Entertainment Television was. I'd heard the term for man years but didn't have even a vague idea what it entailed. Fascinating.
Avatar Wed. 11/6/19 3:41pm Rocky Horror:

@GG: What you created here is called Mallsoft
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/6/19 3:41pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

There you go :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/6/19 3:43pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Rich - Light Entertainment was HUGE when I was a kid. And the viewing figures have never been equalled. It was thrilling to know that you were watching the same Two Ronnies that millions of other people were watching :-) The Christmas specials always had insane figures.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 11/6/19 3:43pm Rich in Washington:

Is it really called that, Rocky Horror, or did you coin that phrase?
Avatar Wed. 11/6/19 3:44pm Rocky Horror:

It really is called that
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 11/6/19 3:44pm Rich in Washington:

I suppose the Yank equivalent would be network TV variety shows.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/6/19 3:44pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I call this particular genre Scaring The Crap Out Of My Listeners And Making Them Want Time Machines. Wave. ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/6/19 3:44pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Rich - absolutely! Sid Caesar and so on :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 11/6/19 3:45pm Rich in Washington:

This tape is fun because it's more the department store music of our youth. Another fun one is that Seeburg thing I mentioned earlier, but it's easily the music of a decade or two before - sort of reminds me of visiting a store in my early, early youth.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/6/19 3:46pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

There was a special on the BBC about ten years ago where they recreated an entire night of vintage light entertainment Christmas viewing. It was wonderful :-)
Avatar 🎃 Wed. 11/6/19 3:46pm Martinibomb:

agree it may say 1973 but I suspect they played this all the way thru the 80s hah
Avatar Wed. 11/6/19 3:46pm Rocky Horror:

@Rich in Washington: Search on YouTube and Bandcamp for Mallsoft
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/6/19 3:46pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I've listened to some of the Seeburg ones - instant nostalgia trip, like you say! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/6/19 3:47pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@MB - most definitely!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 11/6/19 3:47pm Rich in Washington:

Love those bing bongs. It sounds like Fred Meyers stores from my youth.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 11/6/19 3:47pm Alina Brennaman:

All the auditory pleasures of K-Mart shopping without the hassle of pushing broken carts, this is fabulous!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/6/19 3:47pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

When we went to the US supermarket on the Army base in Germany in the 80s it was still this kind of music over the speakers.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/6/19 3:48pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Thank you, Alina! :-)
Avatar 🎃 Wed. 11/6/19 3:48pm Martinibomb:

@Rocky ooh I haven't heard it called mallsoft.. supposing it's some kinda vaporwave sub-genre?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 11/6/19 3:48pm Rich in Washington:

I think you're right, Martinibomb. I suspect some stores and even chains either subscribed to really long-in-the-tooth house production services or had their own playback systems with really antiquated libraries - see Seeburg 1000 again.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 11/6/19 3:49pm Rich in Washington:

That's cool, Rocky Horror! I didn't know that was a thing.
Avatar 🎃 Wed. 11/6/19 3:50pm Martinibomb:

"Glo fi" I like that one heh
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/6/19 3:51pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I love that with every advance in technology to hyper crisp photos and razor sharp sound, we find more and more ways to make everything look and sound crap. ;-)
Like all the Polaroid filters for Instagram.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 11/6/19 3:52pm Rich in Washington:

Speaking of vapor/mallware, etc., I still have this sick fondness for Opus Number One from on-hold music hell. It's the soundtrack to your soul being slowly drained from your body by the inexorable process of capitalist-bound bureaucracy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 11/6/19 3:52pm Alina Brennaman:

This is really nice!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/6/19 3:53pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Rich - Someone on YouTube has done a ten-hour loop of hold music ...

Still got about ten minutes to go but Martinibomb is up after me with Medium Cool :-)

I know! It's fabulous! I like to listen to it while holding my head under a slowly dripping bath faucet.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/6/19 3:55pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

There used to be this option on Virgin where you could select from four channels of hold music and they were ALL crap.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 11/6/19 3:56pm Rich in Washington:

I think anything as hold music is in itself torturous. It should really be harsh or shrill noise, that way when you do actually talk to a human, you'll gladly tell them anything.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/6/19 3:57pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Exactly! Normally the hold music puts me into such a foul mood that I either hang up or just end up having a really terse conversation and have to apologise.
Avatar 🎃 Wed. 11/6/19 3:58pm Martinibomb:

I better get ready cya on the other side! awesome show today
Avatar Wed. 11/6/19 3:58pm Mr Fab:

Such a brilliant show, GG. When i conceived of this channel, i did not know exactly what wonders would come if it. I am so proud.
