Tonight should be a rather strange show. I’ve decided to take a good portion of the broadcast, and use it for trying out some technical and musical ideas I’m hoping to employ on October 11th, during my small portion of the Chicago Calling Arts Festival. Because they’re ideas that relate to transmitting radio, I can’t really work them out elsewhere… so you get to hear my noisy randomness this morning!
Don’t everyone cheer at once.
Speaking of Chicago Calling, our first playlist honoree (i.e., Matt Weston) for today will actually be in the studio on the 11th as well. He’ll be fresh from an evening set at Lemp Neighborhood Arts Center, so it should be interesting to see how his sound changes from late night to early morning, don’t you think?
Update: Things ended up going very well. I haven’t yet ironed out all the kinks of my ideas just yet, but I have proof that they work in a basic setup– now I have to get more into the nuts and bolts of this, and see how far I can take things. Sorry about the playlist not being finished until just now, I wasn’t feeling very well this morning. As for a recording, this show was subject to yet another failed recording. I desperately need a workable solution to the ongoing problem of recording my 2.5-hour long shows. I prefer that the finished recording be in an mp3 format, so I can avoid the problem of ripping/purchasing audio discs for each show. If anyone has great ideas, I’d love to hear them!
