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 think I caused some kind of schedulling glitch on my station Wednesday night as when I checked in on it today (Thursday) it seemed to be running old mix shows over and over. whoops! Station, after slumping for a long time, is getting a few more listeners. While I'm pretty skint, it seems I can afford to run it at the current level and afford to bring back my old (old skool) station as well... Meow/Glitterbox will have been on the air for a year next month. Best of shows will probably finish up while I do some new shows of techno, electro and disco.
Random Noise will include more wierdness than my usual broadcast, like the wierder stuff and wierder still, stuff I wouldn't let myself play normally. Will also be truly freeform.
