The 90.1 signal keeps cutting out
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:20pm Irene Trudel:

Linda, where are you listening from? I want to let someone know if there's a problem. Anyone else having trouble listening?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:20pm Irene Trudel:

Thanks Tommy. I'll let Ken know.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:23pm Ken From Hyde Park:

It was acting like this about a week ago. It's on for about five seconds and then off for five. Back and forth like that.
  10:24pm Ken:

Thanks Tommy checking into it now.
  10:26pm Ken:

Is anybody having problems with the 91.1 signal or is it only 90.1?

Irene can you call me from the terminal room when you get a chance?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:29pm Irene Trudel:

I'll have to put on a record Ken. I'm in the middle of a live performance. Might be a few minutes
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 10:31pm -Ken:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:52pm Irene Trudel:

I think Ken talked me through fixing the signal. Hopefully all is good on air now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:54pm Ken From Hyde Park:

When all else fails, I use this procedure:
1) Unplug the thing.
2) Wait 30 seconds.
3) Plug it back in.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:56pm Irene Trudel:

Good advice Ken!

Irene you're way too cute.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:47pm Ike:

I admit I flipped briefly to WNYC a few minutes ago (but now I'm back) and the New Sounds guy had a live set and said "engineered by Irene Trudel." So congrats on breaking the rules of time and space and being in two places at once. That's how hard you work! Kudos! Ha ha.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:53pm Irene Trudel:

Thanks Ike! I do engineer for John Schaefer a lot. Was it the Tribecastan session?
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 11:54pm Michael 98145:

Fahey always was, always will be, great.
  11:57pm Tommy Jack Haynes:

90.1 seems to be broadcasting correctly now
  11:59pm KP:

Good night Irene!
  12:00am Tommy Jack Haynes:

I broke away to watch the BBC version of Tennessee Williams's "Suddenly Last Summer"...stick with the earlier Kate Hepburn / Liz Taylor version
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:01am Ike:

I think so @Irene, but honestly, my memory is horrible. I also like The Sporkful on which you are sometimes credited. Everybody check out that podcast. And congrats to our pal Anne Saini on splurting out a human baby recently too!
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 8:48am Sean in Bristol UK:

Great show, Irene and thank you to Don for a great live set
