meow:This is a song from under the floorboards... (Magazine)
This space is a repository for my net radio station news and the like. Sometimes, when reposting older news and playlists, I'll include my recent comments in bold italics. I keep the following station description at the top, since I kept changing it all the time.
meow: glitterbox:Freeform eclectronica: new and old. (Hehe, I'm so clever.) Music that falls through the cracks: electro, Italo disco, synth, post-punk, funk, old NYC favourites, obscure 70s/80s, idm, Detroit and other techno techno, acid, microhouse, bedroom bleeps, mash-ups and loads more.
NOT the same old "dance" or "electronic" selections. And when I play 8ties stuff, it's not the same old tunes everyone was already sick of by 1985. It IS quirky, new, and different, often obscure, always interesting and fun. I play whatever it is I'm feeling, from music for dancing to certifiable chillage and points inbetween. It's a great station for home, work or wherever. Playlists are carefully selected and sound quality is way better than it should be at this bitrate.
Latest station news appears, and is archived here.

I tried the mp3Pro, never went live with it, but I'm not sure it's worth it.
I like the way it sounds at like 64kbps however. I guess I still have the minki station which should stay a bit more old skool and that can use mp3pro as I'd want to do it vip-only. hmmm.

...I'm doing, or trying to do, one oldskool show a month. The actual genres are pretty broad... not just rave, not even, although I will get to that! focus is suppsosed to be beats and breaks and I may get sidetracked. First shows were old funk, soul, disco and breaks... with a few new(ish) things thrown in! These are very fun and I really like em... I listen to the mp3s of them all the time!
(I mix on laptop but the source material is vinyl and mostly vintage/original vinyl too.)

It was only a matter of time, what with all the old Italo, no-wave, ancient electro and synth and disco I added last year. At least once a month, I'll be playing a long mix show of some old tunes (and some new-ish ones that fit) ...styles will be all over the place. This first show it's all funk/soul/disco/breaks... While I mix on a laptop, all tunes have been sourced from vinyl, and mostly original/vintage vinyl at that, thanks. I think its prooty cool. These tunes will get added to my regular playlist too... I've got some great ones in store for everybody.
I think it will be fun!
