Nobody asked me but my nomination for album of the year is "Henki" by Richard Dawson and Circle. It came out late in December and isn't on any year-end lists I've seen so far.

How'r ya doing these days?

Handy Haversack:

Yeah, I'm totally dissolute over here. Sleeping past 9! Discipline has grown very lax. But the kittens were cuddling, and that made it pretty hard to get up.

They're doing well! They even took pity on me and gave me room to work last night -- and I hooked up the "new" turntable. We are now a fully functional music battle station!

(Well, I gotta get an FM antenna.)
Avatar 9:27am
DJ Guin:

@Handy - a digital tv antenna might do the trick..admittedly the over the air signal can be spotty
Avatar 9:29am

I've never bought an antenna, it's pretty easy to make a simple dipole out of speaker wire
Avatar 9:29am

@Heidee Surviving. Holidays were lonely as usual, think I'm sick, and still knocking the health stuff off the list. But I'm alive, so really can't complain. Hope your holidays were better! 2022 is gonna be our year, I can feel it.
Avatar 9:30am

@HyperDose, yes! Here's to a much! better! year! Sorry to hear you were under the weather. Get better soon.
Avatar 9:30am

Hyper, best wishes to you! Health and prosperity.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:31am
Handy Haversack:

Love this Upper Wilds album!

DJG, I tried moving the antenna from the govmint box that gets TV reception, but that coax has a locking nut on it that prevents my hooking it to the FM coax on the receiver. I couldn't get the one bit of speaker wire I have (also used in the TV antenna) to attach there either, and since there are no radio shacks anymore, it's as easy to order an antenna as it is to order speaker wire. So I did so (and got an emergency radio).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:34am
Handy Haversack:

Yay, Mama Tried! Great place!
Avatar 9:34am

Yeah, I miss the Shack sometimes. But I've got a lifetime supply of wire in my closet. Just a matter of untangling it!

Hey hyperdose, handy haversack and yeti Bob. Just wondering do you three just sit on your duffs all fucking day and post your drivel?

Avatar 9:38am

JM: Not all day, just in the morning :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:38am
Handy Haversack:

... yes?

Our wire tangle yielded no coax, I'm afraid.
Lake Hiawatha Doug:

I went to opening day of Vision Fest thanks to your recommendation, Tom. Got to see Ava Mendoza play with Dave Sewelson, among others. Definitely a great show. Thanks for that! Happy New Year!

@handy - ideally you could connect the radio receiver to a roof antenna -- i would have to see what's what for a solid recommendation

@HyperDose - sincere thanks for 2021 and for being a buddy. who knows what things we'll accomplish in the next twelve months.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:58am
Handy Haversack:

I'd say roof antenna is extremely unlikely, DJG. City living. Reception in the bathroom is good! But we have never managed to pick up FMU in the front room. The quest continues.

Also, am I sure I know what part of me is the "duff"? What if I've been doing it wrong? When is that call-in show?

Step 2: Move everything into the bathroom.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:03am
Will the Sound Guy:

get some shielded wire, coax would be best. xlr 2nd instrument cable 3rd.... hook up 2 small wires @ your stereo. ground to shield, fm ant to signal wire... then at the bathroom put the 2 2.5' wires connected to the signal and sheild of said wire...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:05am
Will the Sound Guy:

get some thumb tacks and position the "whips" or dipoles for perfect FMU reception

Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:30am
Will the Sound Guy:

right on so you can fashion a loop of wire that is about 11' 1/2" in length for a full wave antenna... then you just have to connect a wire to it and the fm ant connector... you could coil it into a wreath, but will probably pick up interference. alternatively, there is a kink you can refer to for other simpler designs. www.techwalla.com...
