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.

This is probably the most slackingest I've ever been... and coming from me that's saying a lot!
Most recent playlists (BIGMUFF) are not on here. I used the "BIGMUFF" name for some earlier mixes but changed those back to BOGBOX for consistency's sake. If you're keeping score. BIGMUFF (mash-up mix shows from last week) will be replayed on Random Noise tonight. After that, I'll post the playlists.

...with little bit of beats looping and DJ tomfoolery at the end++
+Tiny bit of not-quite-there mash-up I did of these two songs. Did it orginally for "Mucked-Up Fix 2". Its loads of fun but I find it impossible to mix properly. Or at all really. Kinda hate it since the Inhumanz "White Horse" mashup is so obviously better. I am so not worthy.
++I actually did mix this a tiny bit with that Human Resource track, one of those classics from the early hardcore days. Not the Beltram remix, though. I like that one better. I've since done a full mashup of the tracks...yay! Have also done it with "Gossip Folks" although dangit, I'm not not happy with that one.
This was actually a really fun show to do. Kinda miss doing with with turntables, although my digital mixing is improving a little. A popular show too this one is.

+Yet another of my most favourite mash-ups, equal with the Inhumanz' "White Horse" version, and def better'n mine.
++Old one, but, like "Being Scrubbed", I still like it very much and don't tire of it. An irresistable combination as well.
+++...we'll get drunk on cheap wine!
++++One of my most favourite records and a great find, fulla Melle & Flash favourites. (No "White Lines".) And that is "Genius of Love" at the end.
This last one is probably my most favourite. Was popular with listeners too. I dig the mix of stuff I hit on with "Mucked-up Fix" last year, particularly the second one... and that should be the general direction of most of my mixshows... bit of mash-ups, post-punk, funk, electro, Paradise Garage type stuff, new stuff with dance and chill directions taken as prescribed.
This batch may be re-recorded for posterity since I finally got a digital out for my pooter.
