Something a little bit different today - a bit more evocative, and very relaxed :-)
More of a soundscape :-)

Also, let me know if the text is too dark on this background
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:28pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Just changed it - that's better :-)

Looking forward to it x

hey, GG, I checked your instagram, did I get it wrong, or did you have an instagram live set? I have no account (any social media except WFMU)

This is lovely
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:03pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Bit of background - this is a sound album recorded in 1973 qas part of a wider project at the Simon Fraser University in Vancouver. Similar albums were made as part of the project around the world, to asses sound pollution but also to preserve a sense of place. :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:03pm Jan Turkenburg:

Hi there!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:03pm Listener Bob in PGH:

I'm a high(wasted) modernist!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:03pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I thought it would be something a bit more relaxing :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:04pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

The poems that I'm reading today are all by E. Pauline Johnson :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:04pm Rich in Washington:

Hi GeorgyGirl! This is soothing!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:04pm Jan Turkenburg:

I will put on my headphone and go to my lazy chair
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:04pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Hi Darryl, Photocopy, BC, Rich, Jan, and Bob! :-)
Avatar 3:05pm BC Sterrett:

oh, headphones. Good idea
Avatar 3:05pm BC Sterrett:

ahhhh...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:05pm Rich in Washington:

aw crap! I took my good headphones home in anticipation of the shutdown!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:06pm Listener Bob in PGH:

I spent the first 24 years of my life near the ocean, but now I am so very far away from the nearest ocean.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:06pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I can't live away from water. Tried it. Not a good thing.
Avatar 3:06pm Martinibomb:

Hello DJ GeorgyGirl! I think I'm actually ready now... get to chill with yer show. HOw's everyone feeling today? Awesome live guest coming up on Medium Cool so stay tuned for that later.

Some of the tracks on this album make me VERY emotional.

Vancouver. Brings back memories GG?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:15pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Hi Dom! Yep - grew up there :-)
Avatar 3:16pm worldsworstrecords:

This is the maddest HWM ever!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:16pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Hope you're all enjoying it :-)
Avatar 3:16pm Mr Fab:

Here's a HOOO from me too! Just worked my first midnight-8:30 am supermarket shift, and I'm still awake! This is quite nice and relaxing, my muscles need this.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:17pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Hi Mr Fab! Glad it went well :-) How have people been there? Nice and polite I hope :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:19pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

It's actually written as just "ho" in the poem, but that kept cracking me up so I had to do it a bit piratical ;-)
Avatar 3:20pm Mr Fab:

The store is closed most of the night so we can stock shelves and whatnot, but at 7 they let in the oldsters so they can shop with more safety. Hopefully.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:20pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I've gone a bit Resonance FM this week ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:20pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Mr Fab - that's good. :-) A number of markets here are trying to do that, so seniors don't feel so stressed and intimidated.
Avatar 3:21pm Mr Fab:

You're breaking from the library music format! Which fine, it's great that you can experiment with the form.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:22pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

It's kind of, sort of classified as library music, just because it's not really a popular genre or anything like that. ;-)
Avatar 3:23pm Domenic:

This oldster went food shopping at 5:30 AM. ( Open early For people over 60.) I saw one pretty woman and mentioned she should have been carded. Told me she was 67! ...Was i hitting on the senior chicks this morning?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:23pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

But it's nice to experiment a bit every now and then ;-) Keeps me on my toes! :-)
Avatar 3:23pm Martinibomb:

Fab & GG something I've run into recently helping young DJs that you will laugh at. We are in a post-mp3 world now. Where the MP3 is like a cassette tape to some people who have only grown up with streaming services.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:24pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@MB - what's replaced the mp3??? I'm so old!! lol
Avatar 3:24pm Mr Fab:

@Domenic: Va-va-voom! Older and bolder!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:24pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Dom - you saucy thing! ;-)
Avatar 3:24pm Martinibomb:

I've been trying to help DJs make mixtapes since we can't broadcast and MANY of them are like how do I do that? HOw do I get the sound of Spotify?
Avatar 3:25pm Martinibomb:

Spotify & Youtube have replaced the MP3
Avatar 3:25pm Mr Fab:

You gotta be kidding. Don't they get stuff off iTunes, Amazon, etc?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:25pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

That's crazy.
Avatar 3:25pm Martinibomb:

None of them know where to download ANYTHING it's hilarious.
Avatar 3:26pm Martinibomb:

I've been asked like 15 times.. "where do you get mp3's from?" hahah
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:26pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

More for us ;-)
Avatar 3:27pm Martinibomb:

maybe they get stuff off itunes or whatever.. but i think it just downloads to their phone and they have no connection with the file if it's an mp3 or what it is..
Avatar 3:28pm Domenic:

Wow Martinibomb. Trying to wrap my head around that. I was speaking to a veteran announcer last week who used to slice radio programs on reel to reel. rotate them slowly to get to the right spot. Special tape...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:28pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

The one and only time I've ever fished was off Vancouver harbour, on a field trip with my school.
Avatar 3:28pm Martinibomb:

It's just so funny to me seeing this now a little over 20yrs from the Napster days when everyone was freaking out about Mp3s
Avatar 3:28pm Martinibomb:

And I'm old enough to remember when cassettes were going to ruin the record industry
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:29pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

It's staggering just how rapidly the music industry has changed in a really short space of time
Avatar 3:30pm Mr Fab:

I had an uncle who used to take us out on his little boat to fish. Which i didnt really have any interest in. I just liked being on a boat in the ocean.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:30pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Apologies to anyone listening on headphones for this track! ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:32pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Well, I caught some tiny little fish and felt horrible about that. And I had to take it home in a little milk carton and kept it shut tight because I was so freaked out, so of course the poor thing suffocated. I presented it to my mother, and it was belly up in there!
Avatar 3:32pm Martinibomb:

@Fab I'm with ya I hate fishing but I love the ocean/water. I got really into surfing when I was younger and also scuba dive.
Avatar 3:33pm Domenic:

Paid Spotify accounts are legal. So they can use it on air, right? Per FCC.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:34pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Ah - rain and the Pacific Northwest ;-)
Avatar 3:35pm BC Sterrett:

Very nice
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:35pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Thank you, BC! :-)
Avatar 3:37pm Martinibomb:

@Dom technically no it's illegal to use Spotify in that way. But try explaining that to someone who only understands it as the way they listen to music. How else would they do it? I expect at some point companies like Spotify will have some kind of digital audio watermark that can be detected if played on air etc..
Avatar 3:37pm Photocopy Cha Cha:

I missed the napster craze completely. did not have even a computer then. and no internet connection of my own until late 2013.although around 2005 I went nuts about mp3 blogs, downloading all kinds of music whenever I was online, using any public internet access(university, library etc.) and as a result have stacks of cd-r full of mp3's and other files - and I feel like a human relic.
Avatar 3:37pm Martinibomb:

yeah 2005 might have been the peak of mp3 blogs.. I miss those days now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:38pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

There was so many amazing mp3 blogs then. I do miss those as well.
Avatar 3:39pm Photocopy Cha Cha:

some mp3 blogs still exist, just like some fools - like me - insist on using a "Dumb" phone.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:39pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Was? Were. My grammar's slipping ;-0
Avatar 3:39pm Mr Fab:

Anyone remember one blog called Music For Maniacs?
Avatar 3:39pm Martinibomb:

yeh so I'm kinda seeing this world where mp3's go away.. I wonder if they will become collectible?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:39pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Yes!!!! I remember that well! :-)
Avatar 3:40pm Martinibomb:

Music For Maniacs was my #1 favorite blog!
Avatar 3:40pm Domenic:

I love Music for Maniacs.
Avatar 3:41pm Mr Fab:

Oh suuuuure..!
Avatar 3:41pm Photocopy Cha Cha:

music for your eyes was an interesting one, it had old music videos like 13th floor elevators, scott walker etc. and then youtube killed the blog's raison d'etre
Avatar 3:42pm Photocopy Cha Cha:

meaning you had to download the video to your computer , not stream
Avatar 3:42pm Domenic:

I still use a blog called "My Pal Doug's Pals" to review blogs. i don't thin Google is deleting blogs anymore?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:43pm notsoKWYET:

HI GG . -
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:43pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Any music blog that had a graphic that was vaguely groovy and 60s related was my happy spot ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:43pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Hi Dan! How was yoga? :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:43pm notsoKWYET:

Fantastic! starting to get a bit more limber
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:44pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

My sister in law teaches yoga and she's been encouraging me to get into it properly so I'm determined to start at the weekend :-)
Avatar 3:45pm Photocopy Cha Cha:

@3:43 DJ GeorgyGirl: same here, though I was rather single-minded and focused on the Beach Boys smile fan mixes, Syd Barrett bootlegs etc.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:46pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Photocopy - :-)
Avatar 3:46pm Mr Fab:

Strenuous physical exercise is def recommended. Stocking shelves all night left me nicely relaxed, all anxiety drained, for the first time in who knows how long.
Avatar 3:46pm Photocopy Cha Cha:

is it wrong to listen to this through speakers instead of cans? i usually do things the wrong way :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:46pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Of course! Listen however you want, my lovely! :-)
Avatar 3:47pm Mr Fab:

Ive got it on a speaker in my kitchen. Transforms the space.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:47pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I really have to start doing some physical exercise on a regular basis. I feel like I'm welded to my office chair all the time and that can't be good.
Avatar 3:47pm Photocopy Cha Cha:

hey, did you see my question @3.00 GG re insta?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:47pm notsoKWYET:

I hear ya Mr Fab... I run a distillery and I love just pounding it out on the floor, letting it all go
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:47pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Mr Fab - oo! What are you cooking? :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:48pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Photocopy - Ah! Yes ... I didn;t but only because I got the settings wrong so I'm hoping to fix that over the weekend :-) You haven't missed anything!
Avatar 3:49pm Mr Fab:

Ha, sorry, I'm doing dishes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:49pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I was blathering away for a good ten minutes before I realised that nothing was happening! lol
Avatar 3:50pm Martinibomb:

oh my gawd I'm so nervous today. I love Lane Steinberg he's a pretty cool musician... gah.. I hope I don't screw this up and he totally hates me.
Avatar 3:50pm Domenic:

My wife is working remotely downstairs on our PC. My daughter is letting me use her PC in the kitchen where I can monitor CNN with chatty US senators..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:51pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@MB - don;t be silly!!! You're bloody brilliant at this! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:51pm notsoKWYET:

Gg - i've done yoga on and off the past few years... honestly, if you go at your pace, with no expectations ... you will feel so much better
Avatar 3:51pm Katya Oddio:

Hello Georgy and friends. Here's hoping you are well and that the global lockdown is giving you time to hear more music. OXO
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:51pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Martinibomb is coming up after me! :-)

Avatar 3:51pm Mr Fab:

And if he hates you, that would make for great radio! Win/win!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:51pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Kat!!! Hello, lovely!!! :-)
Avatar 3:52pm Photocopy Cha Cha:

I shouls start cooking too! the usual oven veggies. but first, the dishes.too lazy. Mr. Fab dunno how you hold up in a shop, I am too scared to go to one, I am at risk (hypertension). did have to go shopping last night and my inner misanthrope started coming out as people did not keep their distance. also, the local redneck youth - still gathering in groups asif they were immune. grrrr. angry OAP here.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:52pm notsoKWYET:

GG what is the text? It sounds like Dr Seuss
Avatar 3:53pm Martinibomb:

KATYA!! Omgawd so glad u here
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:53pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@notsoKWYET - the poems of E. Pauline Johnson, an iconic First Nations poet from the turn of the last century :-)
The picture is her gravesite in Vancouver.
Avatar 3:54pm Katya Oddio:

MB! Yay! You are on my mind. Our family relocates to your fine region this weekend. Wish were going with them.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:55pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Hope you all enjoyed something a little bit different this week :-)
I'll be back on Friday with the Flange - and we're going to London!! Two hours packed with London bands from the Swinging Sixties and beyond :-)
Avatar 3:55pm Katya Oddio:

Lovely to hear your voice, Georgy

Such a fun concept, Georgy. You are such an idea person. So creative. I wish you still had your oceanside studio when we visited. Wanted to see all the fantastic work you did there. Thanks again for that visit!
