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.

...bringing back old skool sounds here.

It was only a matter of time, what with all the old Italo, no-wave, ancient electro and synth and disco I added last year. At least once a month, I'll be playing a long mix show of some old tunes (and some new-ish ones that fit) ...styles will be all over the place. This first show it's all funk/soul/disco/breaks... While I mix on a laptop, all tunes have been sourced from vinyl, and mostly original/vintage vinyl at that, thanks. I think its prooty cool. These tunes will get added to my regular playlist too... I've got some great ones in store for everybody.

I think it will be fun!

Since this station's been on a kind of hiatus since November, i'll now be changing things a bit. More new tracks, even more variety of stuff, Gutter Glamour rockist tracks may reappear weekends, more mash-up shows, other mix shows and some oldskool stuff as well. really! There will be a scary amount of different and new stuff on here.

Also, I'm switching over to mp3Pro, I do believe, once I finish testing it out. This week, I'll just be playing the top songs of the past year, in the old mp3 format; next, I'll probably switch over to mp3Pro and play a bunch of mash-up shows or something and with that, new playlists will begin in earnest. Please do tune in.

Final top 10 here:

1. Ellen Allien - Stadtkind (Barbara Morgenstern rmx)

2. Adult. - Nite Life

3. The Human League - Don't You Want Me (Extended edit)

4. Talking Heads - The Girls Want to be with the Girls

7. Goudron - All the Chaps

8. Ellen Allien - Stadtkind (Turner Diesen Sommer Fallt Die Entscheidung rmx)
