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.

And, yeah it worked in digital. Laptop NOT CDs -- CDJs are geigh, yeah if you DJ well on them fine, but they're still geigh. I'm sort of unsure about using a computer for my shows -- like everything in (electronic) music is going computer, you can soon buy an ersatz little Korg MS-20, plug it into your pc (or Mac I guess) and control the MS-20 softsynth you've installed on your hard drive. I've been making more computer muzik, at the same time I'm attached to my hardware instruments like my Yamaha sequencers and my 202 and MS2000. (That last one and the Yamahas are digital anyway and if Yamaha made a laptop, I'd buy it.)
Anyway, I'll be doing more of these.
And Howard Dean sucks. I'm tired of him. But unless another Democrat comes on stronger, he is better than the alternative which is George W Bush. I had a dream where I was working on the Dean campaign (which I don't and would avoid doing so) and we were all in this little apartment which we shared with the cast of Law and Order who were somehow working on this really complicated case at the same time and I started working for them instead. It was weird. Eventually Jerry Orbach took everything over.
