Good morning Julie

Everybody Dance!
  3:02am mike noble in dc:

new soundtap clock starting now!
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 3:02am Julie:

Hi Fred & Pie
  3:03am Deepak:

From Black metal to Pop, only at wfmu. Morning Julie.
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 3:03am Julie:

Hey Mike wanna fill people in on that?
  3:03am other david:

fancy meeting you lot here :)

G'morning Julie & listeners, feels like the first time listening live in circa 3000 years
  3:04am mike noble in dc:

hey everyone! so this website soundtap.com is running a non commercial radio march madness bracket. soundtap.com/madness
  3:04am mike noble in dc:

you should go to that website and sign up for an account and give julie and wfmu a listen through that website (rather than through wfmu.org or itunes or however you normally listen)
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 3:05am Julie:

@OD good to see you! Glad you survived St. Patricks :)
  3:05am mike noble in dc:

you can log up to 90 minutes of listening per day to add to wfmu's total.
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 3:05am Julie:

We are being CRUSHED over there
  3:06am mike noble in dc:

we're currently in the last day of round 2. wfmu won round 1 w/o really trying (because it seems soundtap didn't notify anyone that this tourney was even happening)
  3:07am mike noble in dc:

most of yesterday, day 2 of round 2, WFMU had a 10-20 hour lead on WOBC-Oberlin. somehow in the past 8-12 hours WOBC managed to turn that around and they now have a 57 hour lead! a 70+ point turnaround!
  3:08am mike noble in dc:

it's the hottest competition in the entire tournament so far too, no other station approaches the #'s wobc and wfmu are racking up.
  3:08am other david:

survived/turned into zombie, same difference!

I listened on Soundtap yesterday, audio worked for a while then became choppy and unlistenable. I call shenanigans.
  3:08am Deepak:

do i have to register?
  3:11am T-Zero:

Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 3:12am Julie:

Morning T Zero! Mike the Noble is a font of info
  3:13am Destroit:

Hello Julie and all listeners, happy to be at the dance.
  3:14am Deepak:

had to log in before they started the 90 min.
  3:18am other david:

Listening via that site again, seems like ultimate winner in all of this is soundtap itself
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 3:19am Julie:

i want the disco light back!!
  3:22am Destroit:

Single strobe, low ceilings and fog. That's all you need! Dance.
  3:24am fred von helsing:

Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 3:24am Julie:

Mystery song!
  3:28am fred von helsing:

something wrong with the timbre on this cut?
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 3:29am Julie:

did it sound weird?
  3:30am fred von helsing:

yup, hard to describe tho
  3:34am Mark T in VT:

This radio station battle of the bands thing is very silly and I am suspicious of the what is behind it all. But if we want WFMU to "win" I suppose we could just log in to this soundtap thing and mute it and go about our regular business. including listening to WFMU the way we normally would.

Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 3:37am Julie:

@Mark I don't quite understand it either..but Ken cares..so we care
  3:38am mike noble in dc:

wfmu is the greatest. even if it's silly we have to win!
  3:39am fred:

Could soundtap reduce the bandwidth costs for the station if it takes off as an alternate way of listening?
  3:40am other david:

Yep the main thing seems to be free advertising for soundtap, but meh, I'll forget about it whenever WFMU is out

Enjoying this set a lot, Julie
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 3:44am Julie:

Thanks OD.. I am trying to explain to another Irishman that he CAN listen, for some reason he is having trouble :/
  3:45am Rob W:

Re: Soundtap contest: WOBC is clearly stuffing the audio ballot box... they are beating FMU handily but FMU is second overall and substantially ahead of the third place station overall (KFJC).
Poor innocent freeform WCBN Ann Arbor (U. of Michigan), my alma mater, which has to be among the top ten college stations if you ask me (unbiased of course), didn't resort to any such chicanery - and absurdly lost to KSCU Santa Clara University in the opening round. Santa Clara University - ?
The fix is in, I tell you!
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 3:47am Julie:

I think Ken was a WCBN guy wasn't he?
  3:47am Pie:

Unfortunately a lot of these online things are very subject to gaming
  3:48am fred von helsing:

WOBC gets the gold mine, WFMU gets the shaft
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 3:49am Julie:

oh and HI ROB!
  3:49am Destroit:

I love WCBN. Hate this silly 'contest'.
  3:50am Rob W:

Hi Julie, thanks Destroit, and yep, I met Ken at CBN - his last year there was my first.
  3:51am other david:

Julie, perhaps he's still too hungover from the weekend?

(*holds up passport* I'm allowed say that!)
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 3:51am Julie:

Yeah I don't know what the deal is..I told him to click the flash player
  3:53am mike noble in dc:

rob w -- i forget if i've asked you this before. did you know paul fowlie at cbn?
  3:53am Pie:

It may not even be something on his end. Never rule out ISP chicanery when even simple things fail
  3:55am mike noble in dc:

also rob, your show is quite popular on soundtap. that's something, right?
  3:55am Rob W:

And on an earnest note re: the contest - it's cute but the concept is contrary to the spirit of freeform radio at least, where one of the defining concepts is that stations like WFMU put people and shows on the air that we think are worthwhile even if they may not appeal to the largest possible audience.
  3:56am Rob W:

As for my show being popular on Soundtap... er... like I said, it must be rigged!
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 3:57am Julie:

^Not appealing...to a large audience
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 3:57am Julie:

for all the upside down bats out there
  3:58am other david:

Oh Bats! Not baps. Hm.
@Julie - has he tried ye olde stream link: http://wfmu.org/wfmu32.pls
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 3:58am Julie:

if only the 1000 irishmen could get in
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 3:58am Julie:

hah I dunno I will try that
  4:02am mike noble in dc:

if you look at it another way... this contest is encouraging people to listen more. i found myself listening to several college stations i'd never tuned into before. i put on several losers and underdogs trying to help their totals.
  4:02am Glovanie:

I had to do my special dance ;P
  4:03am mike noble in dc:

when a KDVS fan was bad mouthing WFMU on the bodah comment board, I actually found myself giving kdvs 90 minutes of play. mostly because i'd like to see them win so wfmu can crush them in round 3!
  4:04am mike noble in dc:

if it didn't have a 90 minute limit, the contest could encourage people to listen to those unpopular shows, or at least the shows they don't normally care for.
  4:04am mike noble in dc:

you'd have to turn love of station x into love of every single program on station x.
  4:10am fred von helsing:

I would recommend the flash link to people. It's very reliable. Also for archives you get a great clickable playlist function too. Just remind them to click on the "f" icon-button if they see it (flashblock).
  4:10am Rob W:

@Mike Noble - I know Paul Fowlie from work but I don't think I knew him in Ann Arbor. Two FMU alumni, Bart Plantenga of "Wreck this Mess" and the Professor from "Audio Kitchen" both have WCBN roots.

  4:28am ausmanx:

evening, all. sounds too difficult to me... i just wanna listen to the radio is all! julie, sorry for late arrival, was that Bliss track a cover of Dead or Alive??? bizarre. anyone seen the episode of Wife Swap where Pete Burns is the "wife"? absolutely brilliant!

actually i'm no friend of Macgowan's silliness either, really, but Clannad are a bit beyond the pale... i thought you'd like the Prunes, though, Miss Julie... Gavin's a charming nutcase

Orinoco Flow ? Just for a pop infusion ?
