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.

1.15: OK, mix shows are on! I couldn't do it last night, but will be doing a new one tonite around 11pm. Trying to go digital again, my first laptop effort (Halloweenie show) didn't quite come out, but I think I've got it right this time. For the next few weeks I'll be doing the Best of Glitterbox 2003 shows, based on your votes and my favourites and maybe some good stuff I didn't get to get on this year. First one will be a bit rockist (again?) -- but funk, electro, synth, disco, etc. will follow... and mash-ups! yay.
If you miss it tonite, tonites show will be rebroadcast next Wednesday nite @ 11pm EST. And a new one will follow that.
And (whoops, I forgot about these) here are my top 10 mix shows of 2003 as chosen by the listeners:
1. MUF2 6.25.03 - Mucked-Up Fix 2 Electric Bootiloo
By far. And no suprise there, as it was my personal favourite.
