20 minutes until we get a bit weird! ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:00pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Here we go!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:00pm Rich in Washington:

Numbers stations! You can count on me to listen!
Avatar 3:00pm worldsworstrecords:

smooth!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:01pm Jan Turkenburg:

Hi GG, I'm very curious.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:01pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Number stations are super bizarre ... every government denies their existence.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:02pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Hi Jan, Rich, and Darryl! :-)
Avatar 3:02pm worldsworstrecords:

This sounds ace...and slightly unsettling
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:03pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

And ... Blue Ash - Abracadabra: Hippy Shake goes to Elizabeth in New Jersey! Congratulations :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:03pm Rich in Washington:

I know! It's spooky! I love it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:03pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

The Caretaker albums are a six record set over I think two or three years, with 45s he found in a thrift store in Brooklyn.
Avatar 3:04pm worldsworstrecords:

Hey GG! Just going to do my bins and grab a cuppa.... I shall return interfrastically
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:04pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Ok, lovely :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:05pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

The whole series is just stunning - incredibly poignant, and beautifully done. As the albums progress, the songs start to repeat and deteriorate.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:07pm Rich in Washington:

Love this spooky vibe. I'm feeling more apocalyptical than usual, as event after event, including one I've been in the planning stages of, are being cancelled.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:08pm Rich in Washington:

admittedly, I'm a bit peculiar...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:08pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

As I was putting this show together the whole Covid-19 thing exploded so it felt VERY apocalyptic ...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:11pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

This was originally on my shortlist for the October Marathon ... hence the insane creepiness ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:18pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

It's raining outside right now which is making this all super atmospheric :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:19pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Oh! I forgot to say - Josh from the Vernian Process says hi and was very pleased that you all loved the album last week :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:25pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Caetano Veloso & Gilberto Gil - Multishow Live (CD)
and Xenakis - Electronics Works 1: La Legende D'Eer are still available for a minimum $20 pledge, don't forget!
Avatar 3:25pm Martinibomb:

Hello DJ GeorgyGirl, Rich in Washington, Worlds Worst Records!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:26pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Hi MB! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:26pm ParUbi:

Hey there guys!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:27pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Hi ParUbi! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:27pm ParUbi:

Numbers stations?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:28pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

What you're hearing happens all around the world - mainly late at night - on random radio frequencies. Generally held to be secret service coded transmissions, but denied by Governments. Fascinating stuff! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:29pm ParUbi:

Spooky!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:30pm ParUbi:

I listened to some of the raw versions of this, the CONET project. It sounds supernatural to me somehow.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:31pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

It's bizarre, isn't it? The CONET project is an amazing channel :-)
Avatar 3:32pm coelacanth∅:

greetings GeorgyGirl and modernists, frigateers, jungle dwellers...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:33pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@coelacantho - Hi! Which of the two remaining prizes would you like, lovely? :-)
Avatar 3:33pm Martinibomb:

UNGAWA! @coelacanth∅

Hey coel!
Avatar 3:36pm Photocopy Cha Cha:

damn the daylight saving time! I am late! in other words evening all! 7 4 0. 1 8 1.....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:36pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@coelacantho - you can pick Caetano Veloso & Gilberto Gil - Multishow Live (CD)
or Xenakis - Electronics Works 1: La Legende D'Eer (CD) :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:36pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Hi Photocopy!! :-)
Avatar 3:36pm Martinibomb:

Big fan of the Caretaker I am.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:37pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@MB - I'm a recent convert. Just stunning, absolutely stunning :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:37pm ParUbi:

I have to dig more into his work, clearly
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:37pm Otis:

Listening in at work... which is definitely not a numbers station. I do not work at such a station or know of any that exist. However, listening I am.
Avatar 3:37pm Martinibomb:

I think he's done with the project tho.. no more caretaker
Avatar 3:38pm coelacanth∅:

GeorgyGirl Thank you! either one would be great! i Love Caetano and like Gilberto and i think i like Xenakis! if whomever wins the other has a preference i'll have their non-preference, is that okay?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:38pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Otis - hello!!! :-) Although .. who is this "Otis" and what have you done with Hotki Totski? ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:38pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@coelacantho - of course! :-)
Avatar 3:39pm coelacanth∅:

hey Martinibomb! hey ParUbi!
Avatar 3:40pm Photocopy Cha Cha:

Otis, please bring back Honski de Boiski into your nickname, otherwise I will...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:40pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Photocopy - grab it while it's free! ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:41pm Hotsi Totsi Honski de Boiski de Otsi Stoneski:

Apologies for that. Sometimes numbers confuse themselves with letters. I still stand by my assertion that I have never worked for or know of any knowledge relating to bavarian illum 33rd level number stations.
Avatar 3:41pm Honski de Boiski Boisk de Photocopy Cha Cha:

OK!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:41pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

LOL!
Avatar 3:46pm Honski de Boiski Boisk de Photocopy Cha Cha:

GG, thanks for playing this! I forgot the name of this project for a few years after hearing it (until now!) and remembered only the slightly eerie 78 sounds and that this was a John Peel fave
Avatar 3:46pm coelacanth∅:

...i'm actually working and have to get back to it
this is fantastic though, the caretaker
...i think i've barely ever heard high-waisted modernists. i'm almost always busy on certain afternoons.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:47pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@coelacantho - always happy to see you! :-)

i'm having trouble leaving

Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:47pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Honski/Photocopy - glad you're enjoying it! :-)

Martinibomb is after me with the always excellent Medium Cool :-)

i'm going to use that as my private joke from now on..."15728" means misplaced in time
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:49pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I love it :-)

Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:52pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Thank you Hotsi Totsi! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:53pm Mister Totsi:

...and off we float to the land of martinis shaped like bombs.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:54pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

One more track after this and then it's over to Martinibomb's! Thank you all so much for listening and pledging! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:55pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I'll be back on Friday with the Flange - see you all then :-)
Avatar 3:59pm Honski de Boiski Boisk de Photocopy Cha Cha:

thanks for this, will need to look for recordings by the caretaker now that I finally have a name for this, thanks to you, GG (would've been too hard to look for it with "john peel fave" as search criteria)!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:00pm Granny Spicy Tuna (e/em):

thanks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:00pm Rich in Washington:

That was fantastic! And apocalyptic, as befits my mood!
Thanks, GG!
