Hi MB!

hey MB!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:01pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

That playlist looks excellent - looking forward to listening :-)
  4:01pm Martinibomb:

I'm actually doing a bunch of other work today so I pre-recorded this show late last night.. was getting pretty sleepy toward the end.
Avatar 4:02pm worldsworstrecords:

I saw... I'm sure it'll be a blinding show: the track listing looks ace
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:02pm Jan Turkenburg:

Well, I will hear the sleepy part at breakfast tomorrow! LOL
  4:02pm Martinibomb:

Plus it's kinda fun for me to get to listen to myself
Avatar 4:03pm Linda Lee:

beautiful opener, MB! bravo!
  4:04pm Martinibomb:

kind of a fun one to talk over because the repition and the vibe is cool
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:05pm Jan Turkenburg:

Bedroom with whipped cream?
Avatar 4:06pm worldsworstrecords:

this is the United States Naval Academy Band? Not what I expected at all!
  4:06pm Martinibomb:

Thanks Alina!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:06pm Jan Turkenburg:

Yep, yoghurt, whipped cream ... what is that stuff doing in the bedroom????
Avatar 4:07pm Linda Lee:

what's all this about dairy in the bedroom? :-D
Avatar 4:08pm Linda Lee:

time to put on the plastic sheets! :-)
  4:08pm Martinibomb:

@Worlds Worst check this link out? www.youtube.com...
  4:09pm Martinibomb:

I met this guy, "My Robot Friend" who's doing this song I'm playing --- he lives in NYC. I met up with him for breakfast and he wore a pretty cool devil horned knitted hat.
Avatar 4:10pm worldsworstrecords:

Cheers MB
Avatar 4:12pm worldsworstrecords:

awesome Beatles cover: new to me too
  4:13pm Martinibomb:

@WWR says it's not sequenced all electronic instruments played by hand
Avatar 4:14pm worldsworstrecords:

  4:15pm Martinibomb:

Got it from that youtube link that user has a bunch of cool stuff. Met him on the strange/unusual group.
Avatar 4:16pm worldsworstrecords:

i'll check him out
  4:17pm Martinibomb:

he was kinda kidding with me about wanting to do a show here but looking at his youtube he'd be a great addition heh
Avatar 4:19pm Linda Lee:

how does that happen, MB?
Avatar 4:21pm Linda Lee:

honestly have no idea! audition tape? interview over cocktails? extrasensory communication?
Avatar 4:21pm worldsworstrecords:

Haha! I was headhunted by Mr Fab
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:21pm Otis Fodder:

Back from the grocery, Sheena stream still on, piped through the rooms.
Avatar 4:22pm Linda Lee:

really! :-)
  4:22pm Martinibomb:

Hey Otis,Linda!
Avatar 4:22pm worldsworstrecords:

He would be the ebst person to talk to if you were interested. Linda
  4:24pm Martinibomb:

@Linda yep Mr Fab is the one to send your demo tapes to heh
Avatar 4:25pm Linda Lee:

me? no, i'm not headed that way yet. my entire life is now under renovation. not the time to take on a new obligation, even if I were invited. i've always been curious though.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:25pm Otis Fodder:

I was also headhunted by Fab. Oh, the arduous interview process.
  4:25pm Martinibomb:

a weekly show is hard and it's way more fun to listen to other peoples shows
Avatar 4:26pm Linda Lee:

Avatar 4:26pm Linda Lee:

what's hardest, do you think?
Avatar 4:27pm worldsworstrecords:

Yeah, finding new stuff to play every week isn't easy!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:27pm Otis Fodder:

Waking up in time for the show. Ha.
  4:27pm Martinibomb:

Djn is hard work for sure. I'm always tired after I get done
Avatar 4:27pm Linda Lee:

ha! I hear that. especially on a Sunday. :-)
Avatar 4:28pm Linda Lee:

is it the performance bit? that you're 'on' for the duration?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:29pm Otis Fodder:

In reality, hardest part for me was (and getting better at it now) hitting the playlist timing just right when lining up physical media. Now I do a 10-second or so click, even if it's just the artist (so I don't ever have to re-listen or go timestamp, just move on).
  4:29pm Martinibomb:

maybe in my case because I have a standing system?
Avatar 4:31pm Linda Lee:

i get the standing. sure.
haven't even considered the playlist part!
Avatar 4:31pm Linda Lee:

hmm... the 'now playing' selection over the playlist isn't working today.
  4:32pm Martinibomb:

I pre-recorded this last night and entered the playlist -- one o the downsides
Avatar 4:32pm worldsworstrecords:

That's because MB put the whole playlist up in advance, rather than as each song plays
Avatar 4:32pm Linda Lee:

what is this, MB?
Avatar 4:33pm worldsworstrecords:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:33pm Otis Fodder:

I find it much easier live though personally. When it was pre-recorded I spent more time weekly putting the show together (as I could always go back and edit). Now my only pre-planning is finding a show title, an image, and be sure I have stacks of vinyl/cds (and sometimes digital) ready to go. Need to play more tapes too!
  4:33pm Martinibomb:

I'm working on a project and I knew I couldn't do both at once heh but I can kinda monitor the chat.
  4:33pm Martinibomb:

This is Spiritualized doing a cover of Spacemen 3 song
Avatar 4:34pm Linda Lee:

understood for sure.
thanks! great track.
  4:34pm Martinibomb:

@Otis I pre-recorded it *live* I didn't pick out anything before hand so it took me exactly 3hrs to do it.
  4:35pm Martinibomb:

@Otis and agree just recording it or doing it live is faster than trying to edit a show. I'd spend double the amount of time
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:35pm Otis Fodder:

That's how I did more of my shows as well... but always found myself thinking a lot about it being pre-recorded.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:35pm Otis Fodder:

Always takes more time as you have to pre-record for 3 hours and then spend 3 hours watching the playlist. Double.
  4:36pm Martinibomb:

I also think my live stuff is better even if there's mistakes the freeform just picking music as you go kinda works well for me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:38pm Otis Fodder:

Whatever is most comfy though. I agree, always like the live freeform, hit go and go. Like now, all I have to do for Sunday is just pick a playlist image and a show title and be here on time. Waking up is tough (or getting home after a long night).
  4:38pm Martinibomb:

I'm juggling a few projects right now. Will drop in the playlist every 30min or so see how it' s going. I'm listening along with y'll and thanks for listening.
Avatar 4:40pm Linda Lee:

loving the set, MB! beautiful.
Avatar 4:41pm Linda Lee:

that's the thing about Sunday, right?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:43pm Otis Fodder:

Oh yes, lazy day. Perfect day (for me) for the show. Everything is a bit slower here.
Avatar 4:43pm Mr Fab:

(back from lunch) Linda, I recruited DJs initially from ones i knew from the past (Otis and I go back like spinal column). Rich, Darryl, Spacebrother and Don-O i knew from my blogging days. Otis recommended some folks like Georgy, Rich recommended martinibomb.
Avatar 4:45pm Linda Lee:

very cool. love hearing the backstory to the amazing radio i'm hearing. and depend on!
Avatar 4:45pm Mr Fab:

and Martinibomb recommended Ursula 1000. Becky the Holy Tonk Radio Gal from the main broadcast channel recommended DJ ARB. And so on, and so forth..
Avatar 4:45pm Mr Fab:

oh, and Otis recommended Jan, too.
Avatar 4:46pm Linda Lee:

the sense of a tribe is strong. now i see! :-)
Avatar 4:46pm Mr Fab:

and Georgy recommended Danny's "Record Roulette Club"! Is that everyone? Ha ha. I'm still contacting folks, too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:46pm Otis Fodder:

Oh yea, fill up that schedule with goodness Fab.
Avatar 4:48pm Linda Lee:

the Sheena stream really is fabulous. i love it. i love the Djs most.
Avatar 4:49pm Linda Lee:

i'd love seeing the family grow.
Avatar 4:51pm Mr Fab:

and we love you! If we didn't have an appreciative audience, wouldn't be much point to this crazy contraption.
Avatar 4:54pm Linda Lee:

just now recommended the show to someone I know from the mothership chat board. always driving traffic this way. that's my mission. people who love music should know Sheena's.
thanks for the love, Mister F! :-D
Avatar 4:57pm Linda Lee:

I love the gentle people track. superb.
Avatar 4:59pm Linda Lee:

oh dear! just lost my left channel!
Avatar 4:59pm Linda Lee:

let's try a reboot.
Avatar 5:00pm Mr Fab:

yeah, it went out in one channel near the start of the who, but came back
  5:04pm Martinibomb:

ANy complaints so far?
  5:05pm Martinibomb:

ah it's back hmm.. okay
  5:05pm Martinibomb:

Well this was off a crusty record and I remember it had a hairball going last night so that's probably the issue
  5:08pm Martinibomb:

speaking of which I think there might be some "Dead Air" coming up. Not to alarm anyone.. it does happen. I just keep the tapes rolling
  5:09pm Martinibomb:

Will happen around the 90min mark
Avatar 5:10pm Mr Fab:

Both channels loud n clear.
Avatar 5:12pm Linda Lee:

Avatar 5:13pm Linda Lee:

sound! sound!!
  5:14pm Martinibomb:

@Linda the issue was on my end ;-/
Avatar 5:14pm Linda Lee:

it's beautiful now. I'm loving this Paniks tune!
Avatar 5:15pm Linda Lee:

what a gem!
Avatar 5:17pm Mr Fab:

Did Andy Kaufman actually release that? That was cool.
  5:18pm Martinibomb:

He did not release it himself I got it on vinyl 10yrs ago as some kind of official release?
  5:19pm Martinibomb:

It's a whole album of andy and his grandmother literally
Avatar 5:21pm Mr Fab:

Ha, so great.

What was the steel guitar-ish instro?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:22pm Otis Fodder:

Great mix mb. Still listening, moving towards the kitchen to make some grub.
Avatar 5:23pm Linda Lee:

sorry I have to ask. what's this right here, MB? it's lovely.
Avatar 5:24pm Linda Lee:

never mind, got it. I always love Alessandro!
Avatar 5:30pm Mr Fab:

I would sell it, but who'd buy it?!
Avatar 5:30pm Linda Lee:

I find this really amusing.
  5:31pm Martinibomb:

takin' a coffee break and checking in.. I think there is dead air after this "The SOund of B&W - Tobacco Sales Meeting Music)
Avatar 5:32pm Mr Fab:

This is genius. I love how that one track was *almost* the BeeGees.
Avatar 5:32pm Linda Lee:

so incredibly odd.
Avatar 5:33pm Linda Lee:

selling power, power to earn, BMW wants you to turn on.
  5:33pm Martinibomb:

This must be the dead air -- heh sorry not sure how long it lasts
  5:33pm Martinibomb:

Enjoy your John Cage moment!
Avatar 5:33pm Mr Fab:

Who's doing this John Cage cover?
Avatar 5:34pm Mr Fab:

Ah damn, ya beat me to it!
Avatar 5:34pm Linda Lee:

i see the Boosh coming up. love the Boosh.
  5:34pm Martinibomb:

Lol yeh this is me covering John Cage
  5:35pm Martinibomb:

I thought this compilation was 10min and I took my dog outside wow it was a really long span of dead air gawd.. radio failure!
Avatar 5:35pm Linda Lee:

I hear a lot of tapping over some type of low rolling hum, like the sound of air heat coming up through the floor grates. really interesting.
Avatar 5:35pm Linda Lee:

oh! it changed!
  5:36pm Martinibomb:

ohhh I probably had my Mic on and it picked up the speakers in the room/reverb heh oops more radio failures lol - oh well it's still better than the "Algorithm"
  5:36pm Martinibomb:

gave it a lil more ambience heh
  5:37pm Martinibomb:

This is Damu The Fudgemunk playing currently
Avatar 5:37pm Linda Lee:
