Favoriting April 21, 2023: The Reluctant Return of Lost Decade Radio grab-bag #5
The next to the last attempt at personal nostalgia crap (mine) unearths tracks like Zappa going "disco". Pink Lady tumbling through the US and the last shread of A. M. Top 40 radio in Los Angeles (well, KHJ would hold out for another year with Rick Dees but that got ugly. So much for learning from history)

Hi Don-O. Stereo looking good on you.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:04pm

Is it the track, or is stuff breaking in/breaking up regularly on this?
Avatar 6:04pm

Hey, WR! Thanks, though I'm not too sure about my 'net......
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 6:06pm

sounds like some crazy white kid trying to do some scratchin'

Lots of stream interruptions here, too, doc.

Another track from around this time is "Ugly People with Fancy Hairdos." It's at least borderline crap.

This is turning into the Hour of Crap Pastiche.

If this keeps up to the 40 minute mark, I'm going to pull the plug!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 6:12pm

this has a real love boat vibe.

Thinking it was the wild and occasionally unpredictable
Frank Zappa 12” mix … that was dropping-out & being interrupted with audio drop-ins of AM radio sounding qualities (commercials and retro sounds from ‘mom & dads hipster’ collection / as well as retro radio ads / other novelties).
Anyone else experiencing this ?
Since I’m a newbie to (only one hour of) “Crap” - I wasn’t sure if this constant interruption style was it’s mode of normal function !?!?! 🤪🫥🤭

Are you buffering, Don?

I'm having internet trouble. I live in a shitty town with shitty internet. So, this is accidental crap going on.
Avatar 6:19pm

↳ Krys O @6:16
Oh yea. I'm buffering and burning out. If you guys want me to continue, because I'm not in the mood to sit here for 3 hours hear the signal going ALL crappy on me. Now, I can't hear anything. Yay or Nay?

Ok … now I read & see : others have reported in.

Don-O : fyi … when you were testing out your equipment at the end of other evening Sheena streaming shows ,
These random dropping in & outs were happening then as well !
Krys O:

Are you streaming an mp3?
Krys O:

The bitrate should be 44.1K 128kps
Avatar 6:22pm

Okay, I'm listening through my laptop and I haven't heard any skips yet. So this set will have to do.
Krys O:

Anything other than that can cause problems.
Krys O:

Seems okay now.

↳ Krys O @6:22
That's my setting. I sadly have a long history of internet problems since moving here in Bullhead City.
Avatar 6:26pm

Well, looks like if I don't listen to my show while streaming it. I'm good. Well, I do have my old laptop hooked up to my stereo, so I get to hear my crap and my voice from the big speakers!!
Avatar 6:27pm

....and if I don't post any track in the playlist and the chat room.....
Krys O:

Right, bandwidth issue.
Krys O:

Maybe you can publish the whole playlist in the future.

I *vaguely* recall KTNQ. Transmitter was in Industry, not far from where I lived.
Avatar 6:31pm

↳ Krys O @6:29
"bandwidth". I better bug Optimum when I talk to them.
Avatar 6:33pm

Yea, I better send this file to FMU site and replace this f-ed up version with a clean copy. I certainly have done that MANY times before. BTW, I netter throw this fact out there before the net goes out on me.
Krys O:

Are you still connected to BUTT, Don?
