The Podcast is Up


Clicking on the "Latest Podcast" picture to your right will now take you to our Podcast library.  The first one is available for your amusement.  It's from a 1978 aircheck, and is a pretty good example of what we used to do with Late Nite Radio.

I guess I'll link to the page here, too.  And, what the heck, the file as well.  We (Nockley and I) are going to try to post one of these every Friday.  No idea how that's going to work out.

The Stream is Down

 One thing about computers: their complexity makes it unlikely they'll totally screw up your work by having everything go wrong at once.  That said, they are also good at fouling up what you do with unexpected failures at critical points.

 The stream is down.  I shut it off to add new stuff, and it wouldn't come back.  Technical issue.  It's raised questions about having a stream in the first place.  Maybe going back to through-the-air radio is better.  Nockley thinks so.  

Update, Aug 26: Yes; yes, I do.  I don't know if you 21st Century-types recall it, but there used to be an expression, "Don't put all your eggs in one basket."  Word to the wise.

Regarding the stream: there's a lot of moving parts in that contraption, and neither of us are techs.  (I'm actually "pre-computer"-- oh, how charming, it's being spell-checked.  The computer doesn't recognize it.)  You get a lot more bang for your buck with a podcast, at this stage of affairs.

So, here's the deal.  The stream is paid up for the next month.  If we drop anything into it, you'll be the first to know.  But watch this space for a weekly podcast starting on Friday.

New CutUpSound album on Bandcamp

You can listen to it for free at this Link.

My first album in 7 years.  Most, maybe all the tracks are already on the site here.  I edited a few when they went to Bandcamp-- ain't sayin' which ones.  

The first two albums, I deleted the tracks from this site, for some reason.  Not worth the fuss this time.  But if you want a handy collection of your favorite CutUpSound audio experiments, the link is probably better than fishing around over here, anyway.

Police Squad: Metastatized Narrative

I like the way it takes off when they bring Phil Dihn into it.
