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 am a total nerd. When I say the sound is awesome, I mean it's true to the way that 80's videogames sounded... by todays standards it's crap but it sounds good as crap. Never mind. Although Taito games on Saturn had a very good old school sound... Bubble Bobble in particular is the equal of the Midway Collection. Taito also had beautiful music on its more advanced Saturn games -- Galactic Attack/Layer Section 1 as well as the Raystorm sequels on PS1 are particularly nice. They were scored by Zuntata. (Capcom's GigaWing on Dreamcast sounds rather similar.) Although respect has to be given to Treasure's Radiant Silvergun. Saturn tended to sound very nice, particularly with old school (coded? tracked?) music. Even the CD player was cool. I wish Sega, since they were out of that business would make their old systems public domain/open source or something. There's always Linux on Dreamcast.

Yup... VGM (video game music) is likely coming to my station soon
