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'm doing, or trying to do, one oldskool show a month. The actual genres are pretty broad... not just rave, not even, although I will get to that! focus is suppsosed to be beats and breaks and I may get sidetracked. First shows were old funk, soul, disco and breaks... with a few new(ish) things thrown in! These are very fun and I really like em... I listen to the mp3s of them all the time!
(I mix on laptop but the source material is vinyl and mostly vintage/original vinyl too.)
