It’s Warm Inside
TIM, that is fabulous to hear that KOSI in Denver polled their VERY INTELLIGENT AUDIENCE and made the right move.
And, BILLYBURG, your abbreviated lyric for a “proper” song is FANTASTICALLY FUNNY and because you came up with it you are hired effective immediately!!
That’s the Final Straw
Since this furor erupted over the “Cold Outside” song I’ve come to the conclusion that too many man hating women are making it cold inside.
Therefore, even though KDX does not play Christmas music, WE PLAN TO PLAY FRANK LOESSER’S ACADEMY AWARD WINNING SONG EVERY DAY! I have a ton of Christmas albums so it’ll be easy to…[Read more]
The Absolute Truth
It is completely true that part 15 radio projects are beneficial as time well spent!
I suspect that people wonder how I can be so smart for my late age, and the answer is simple… it’s all the radio everyday.
The more mistakes I make the more I have to stop and figure out what happened.
Most people my age don’t make as many…[Read more]
Defense Against Christmas
Artisan Radio is right again: “There are many much more important issues every day than this, which ultimately boils down to freedom of expression.”
From what I have been reading and hearing it is a small but vocal enclave of misandrists who pick away at romantic dialogue such as with “Baby It’s Cold Outside”.
I see…[Read more]
What Comes Around Has Gone Around
This flap over “Baby It’s Cold Outside” has become the buzz on talk shows all over the place and today we learned it was written by Frank Loesser for the movie “Neptune’s Daughter (1949). The song won an Academy Award for Best Music that same year.
Frank Loesser and his songs and musicals are way up at the top…[Read more]
Our Small Radio Arena
Radio8Z’s experience matches general observations made over several years of tending both AM and FM part 15 operations.
Changes to antennas, transmitter outputs and the surrounding terrain, are typically observed as very slight using whatever method of evaluating signals.
We all go through periods of looking for the big…[Read more]
Don’t Take This Too Seriously
This morning I was thinking about what a good voice Bing Crosby had and I started wondering if “I’m Dreaming of a White Christmas” has racial overtones. I’ve decided not to pursue the idea because I’m already in pretty deep with the other thread on rap music.
The main thing is that most people think about having…[Read more]
For a Minute I Thought It Was Tim
I like to be sure that I know what I’m talking about by scanning the local radio dial so I can complain about too much sports and religion, but today was a pleasant surprise on WEW 77 AM, playing polka music!
I checked several times and it was definitely an all-out polka show with two very jovial hosts taking…[Read more]
We Are the Smart Low Power Discussion Site
Mark says, “I do like that I started this discussion. At least there’s some activity here. It was getting pretty dead for a while.”
And I also like that you started this conversation, Mark, because it gives everyone a chance to express their point of view and maybe learn some things.
I am still l…[Read more]
Words and Descriptions
Right, BillyBurg directs the conversation toward what we mean by the words we use to describe music. “Traditional” instruments might also refer to “acoustical” instruments, which are physical devices that require only human power and produce pitches across several octaves.
The “synthetic” instruments require electricity…[Read more]
Taking the Rap
Holy Wow, BillyBurg, I found all those titles on YouTube and had a very good time with them.
Here is an interview between Jeremy Scahill and the rapper Vic Mensa… it is the one titled:
From an artist’s point of view.
I have two Commodore 64 computers and four Amiga computers which haven’t been used in over 10 years so they might have forgotten how to turn on.
Eventually I’ll list it all on eBay, but not until I figure out how to save some files on Amiga disks.
If memory serves I think there are some Commodore files on the Wayback Machine…[Read more]
What We Know So Far
Peet brought up a significant point: “I think it is a vertical construction.”
That’s what I expect also. From what I have heard AM antennas are almost always vertical so that they will send in all directions, but sometimes stations have used horizontal antennas for special reasons, but horizontal antennas are directional.
I love these threads where we learn by sharing what we think and know about things.
Later today I will try to link everyone to a tremendous radio conversation I found between a top journalist and a famous rap artist. It is very intelligent and informative and might help shatter some of the attitudes about rap artists being…[Read more]
