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.

These artists didn’t place in the top 50 but also got votes:
Paul Johnson feat. Jessica, Lowfish, Dominatrix, X-103, Skanfrom vs Pest(e), Legowelt, LCD Soundsystem, New Order, Daniel Wang, The Juan MacLean, , Zoot Woman, My Robot Friend, Fischerspooner, Ulysses, Smash.tv, Magazine, Vitalic, Mr Lovelace & Mrs. Kalif , Anthony Rother, Zombie Nation, Los Hermanos Rodriguez, Malcolm McLaren, Yello, Ramm, A Touch of Class, The Things, Mulletronic and Mount Sims.


First on in the top 50 is kinda suprising, as it's a pretty old tune (as in 2 years or so old) that I kept around since I like it so much. Second one (which is truly old, as in 80's) is just totally out of left field, while I really enjoy it, I had no idea it was so popular. The most popular artists overall seem to be I-f, Dr. Shingo, DMX Krew, Adult. and Porn.darstellar. Of course I play a lot of all these artists, so that has something to do with it. This top 50 might be a bit incomplete, as Meow/Glitterbox has only been on the air since March 2003. Not every track here came out in 2003, all were, of course added to my playlist then. Next year’s chart (touch wood) will probably exclude old tunes (except for 70s-90s) and any tunes that charted this year.

I’ve tried to identify the record label but don’t have them all written down yet. While nearly all of what I play on my station is vinyl, I think pretty much all of it can also be found on CD, often on compilations. Of course you should buy everything I play. I look forward to what goodies 2004 will bring.
