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.

Back once again for the renegade badger!
last week's shows... yes, I will play them again if you wish to be tortured... no really, they were quite good, even if the second one gets a wee bit cheesy.

+Like this one a lot. You know, if Tiga was just a wee bit tuffer, the result could've been the greatest ghetto-tech record never recorded. Or something. This uses the dirty version of "Me So Horny" which I'd never heard before. I only remember the clean version they played on MTV and the radio. I'm not too easily offended, but that song is a55-nasty! No wonder 2 Live Crew got their a55es banned across America.
++MMmmm, yeah. He's good.
This following show is, hands down, the cheesiest show I have ever done. No lie. Just look at it. I sincerely apologize to anyone I may have offended. But it was very fun.

Soundhog: 500 Bad Mice (2 Bad Mice vs The Proclaimers)
+Good stuff... the first is actually better than at least 80% of vocal trance tunes. OK, maybe that's not saying much. The second, OK, I really liked the BT song -- I don't like his newer stuff (starting with "Movement in Still Life") but the old stuff, "Flaming June" in particular is good. And he produced the "Party of Five" soundtrack.
++I sincerely apologize for this one. I realize it uses one of the cheesiest and most hated songs ever. And Baha Men suck, too. Just kidding! But really, I'm very very sorry. You must admit that the two work very well together.The following tune may be even cheesier, although I don't think it is, it is definitely a matter to debate.
+++I like Mr. Whitelabel very much. Actually, I'm sure I own both these tunes; if not just on CD compilations.
++++BADGERBADGERBADGERBADGER! Mushroom, Mushroom! haha...classic.
+++++Funny since the original A-ha tune was already @ jungle tempo! This starts off the d'n'b part of the show. Actually the Opus III track before it is really d'n'b not H.H. ...or would that be 'A.'A.?
++++++I apologize for these too.I only did it since the second Britney remix pretty much just uses dubby vox from the chorus. And the third one is just so damn good! I like how the (sampled)chick singer in the Prodge tune sounds just like Britney for a moment. So you think she's singing "Toxic" and then launches into "You're no good for me, I don't need nobody...." Brilliant.
Yep, I might just play these again. And I challenge anyone to surpass the cheesiness of that last mix. I don't anyone is quite that brave... or stupid. I wanna do a big show tonight as I have loads of good stuff, but it might start way late, like after midnite.
