Olivia Newton-John asks - have you never been mellow? ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:00pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

And we're off! :-)
Avatar 5:05pm Martinibomb:

did they figure out the stream problem? I guess you connected just fine
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:06pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Hi MB! Seems fine .. touch wood :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:06pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Was Alina having problems, too?
Avatar 5:07pm Martinibomb:

Nope she was fine. RRC started late and the auto stream was silent.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:08pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I've just volunteered to stream for him until he gets up and running.

It's LoriHajiTura time!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:09pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Hey Rich! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:09pm Rich in Washington:

Hey, GeorgyGirl!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:10pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Not much talking in this week's show, but some general huskiness. lol
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:11pm Rich in Washington:

Just in time to have a cup of black spice chai.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:11pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I've been sucking throat lozenges like they're going out of style ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:13pm Rich in Washington:

uh oh. Laryngitis?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:13pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Nah - just a general cough and throat situation. The lovely damp UK weather!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:14pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I had laryngitis once which for a Gemini sucked immense arse. lol
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:14pm Rich in Washington:

Oh yeah. I know exactly what you're talking about. They're calling what we're encountering over here an 'atmospheric river' which is very accurate.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:16pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I talk complete bollocks in a bit about how the "advert" section is a woman talking about kitchens. It is, in fact, a short documentary from the 80s by Danny Baker about British heavy metal. lol No kitchens involved ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:16pm Rich in Washington:

Wonderful theme today! Love this kind of stuff!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:16pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

It's rock, Jim - but not as we know it ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:21pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I do NOT have a 1959 thing about doing your kitchen. LIES. lol
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:26pm Rich in Washington:

Those James Last Non-Stop Dancing compilations are great for schlocky versions of rock, as I am sure you know.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:27pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Rich - my daughter alphabetised my vinyl before Christmas and the largest slab were the James Last ones! I didn't realise the extent of my addiction ... and that doesn't include the digital ones! lol
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:28pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I do love Hansi :-)
Avatar 5:28pm Martinibomb:

wow just cranked out a ton for both sheena and freeform today. heh sent danny some info and busted out 2 tshirt design ideas
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:29pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@MB - mind if I have a go, too? You've got my creative juices going :-)
Avatar 5:29pm Martinibomb:

and I'm going to cover for greg
Avatar 5:30pm Martinibomb:

@GG yeah! I think we should all be working on stuff do it!
Avatar 5:30pm Martinibomb:

u don't need my permission hah!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:31pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I'll do some sketching tomorrow - this is my "week off", ie not putting together shows. I'm trying a new work schedule where I do an extra show a week so I have a week off each month :-) Still broadcasting, just not editing etc :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:32pm Rich in Washington:

I need someone to alphabetize my collection! I'm terrible at it. I just put them in their relatively loose categories and then get down on my knees and read the spines.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:32pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@MB - just wanted to make sure I wasn't stepping on toes :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:32pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Rich - I'll send CJ over :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:33pm Rich in Washington:

Right -O! Express airmail? Hope she likes cats!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:33pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

She LOVES cats :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:34pm Rich in Washington:

I used to have this OCD friend come over and he couldn't sit down and socialize until he'd alphabetized all my CDs.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:34pm Rich in Washington:

Not that I'd make him, mind you. It just drove him nuts.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:35pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

She volunteered ... I kept saying "Are you sure?" And she was as happy as anything ... :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:36pm Rich in Washington:

I wish I had that skill and patience. I get hung up on the categories which I file my records under.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:36pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Speaking of Hansi ... ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:36pm Rich in Washington:

OH YESS!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:36pm Rich in Washington:

My lower jaw hit the desk the first time I heard this!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:37pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

The man was a total genius :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:37pm Rich in Washington:

Do you suppose Last ever got around to doing anything like The Sex Pistols or The Damned? My Non-Stops stop around '74 or so.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:38pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I've got some 80s albums ... I'm sure he did. You've given me a mission now! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:38pm Rich in Washington:

oh yeah! You HAVE to!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:39pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I've just noted it sown on my ever-growing theme list ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:39pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Down, even.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:46pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I've booked my cover slot for Jan for the 28th February ... I'm doing a four-hour Flange ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:48pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

That's Nawff Lahndan ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:49pm Rich in Washington:

oh wow! That's a whole lotta Flange!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:49pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Not to be confused with Sahff Lahndan ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:49pm Rich in Washington:

Who are you covering for?
Avatar 5:49pm Martinibomb:

Okay I am all set to fill in for SpaceBro
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:50pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Oh! I have to call it that :-) (Even if it makes me snigger a little in a 14-year-old schoolboy kind of way. lol)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:50pm Rich in Washington:

I love Helmut's stuff! I have his version of Hurdy Gurdy Man.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:51pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Rich - Jan. He's seeing his friend do his first stand up show :-) Love Helmut Zacharias, too :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:53pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I sound like Marlene Dietrich this week! Helloooo dahlink! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:54pm tw2sheds:

I feel so ill prepared.....no 3D glasses
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:55pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@tw2sheds - you'll get boogly eyes! ;-) Hi there! Welcome to the show :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:56pm tw2sheds:

TY always fun
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:56pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

:-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:58pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

That anodyne "yeah" cracks me up every time :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:59pm Rich in Washington:

was just reading somewhere about how much Frank Sinatra supposedly hated The Doors so much. Allegedly, he once stopped his car and smashed his radio in with his shoe because a Doors song came on and when he switched stations, it was on it as well.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:00pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@rich - wow! Really?? Why?? I mean there's dislike and then there's ... frenzy. lol
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:00pm tw2sheds:

Is that a good radio or soft shoe story
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:01pm tw2sheds:

Angry Sinatra
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:01pm Rich in Washington:

I believe the song in question was Light My Fire, which his daughter Nancy later covered.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:02pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

That's crazy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:02pm Rich in Washington:

It's certainly testament to the robustness of 60s shoes, tw2sheds!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:03pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I feel sorry for the radio! Don't smash radios, kids! ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:04pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I mean I don't like Justin Bieber, but a radio's a radio :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:06pm Rich in Washington:

One could theorize. I imagine he could see that his ship had sailed and that all these young upstarts were getting all the birds.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:07pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Wasn't there a similar thing with him and Elvis where he was forced to have Elvis on as a guest but tried to out-Alpha him?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:09pm Rich in Washington:

Oh, I've never heard that one! That sounds fascinating!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:09pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

My daughter just came up with a conspiracy theory. Given Frank Sinatra's "connections" ... how did Jim Morrison REALLY die? ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:13pm Rich in Washington:

Oh yeah! Frank's totally plugged into the right people to make that happen, too. Don't mess with a Sicilian.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:13pm Rich in Washington:

And probably Elvis, too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:14pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

"Yeah - shove him in the tub. Make it look like an accident."
Avatar 6:14pm Martinibomb:

I think the jazz solos on this kinda stuff is awesome
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:15pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I attempted to listen to an Audible book about the Laurel Canyon conspiracy theory but the author was SO boring that I gave up. Which is a shame, because the theory sounds fascinating. Tenuous, but fascinating
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:15pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@MB - I love that they retain their original core, but they also sound authentically the cover artist's :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:18pm Otis Fodder:

Hello there. Tuned in about an hour back. Cooking and cleaning, prelude to Couching. Carrying on with the smooth sounds.
Avatar 6:18pm Martinibomb:

every time I get ready to Dj I always have a strong feeling to drink alcohol. I think it's from DJn out in venues so much.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:18pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Hi Otis! :-)
Avatar 6:18pm Martinibomb:

heylooo Otey!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:18pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@MB - I always have a strong feeling to drink alcohol to calm the nerves! :-)
Avatar 6:19pm Martinibomb:

maybe that's what it is?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:20pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

The show's not going to play ... no one's going to turn up ... everyone's going to hate it ... my laptop is going to explode ... The usual ;-)
Avatar 6:20pm Martinibomb:

that has already happened to me enough I have like 3 backup ways I can stream
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:21pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I DJ'ed a couple of years ago and forget to disable stuff ... so ten minutes before I was due to start Windows updated. Mortified. MORTIFIED.
Avatar 6:21pm Martinibomb:

so far Virtual DJ has been pretty solid for you. Do you use it in your productions ?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:22pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I use it to make playlists, but all the leg work is in Audacity :-) And then the broadcasting is VDJ :-)
Avatar 6:23pm Martinibomb:

you should play with Reaper at some point and see if you like it better than Audacity. It's got some nice ways of moving audio around/arranging it
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:23pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

When I put the playlists together I basically DJ live for Chris and/or CJ :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:25pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I love that Otis always appears when his ident is near. It's like I conjure him up ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:30pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I always get impatient with throat lozenges and end up crunching them and then I get bits glued to my teeth. I am currently menthol-fresh.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:32pm Rich in Washington:

I love Reaper. I still use Audacity quite a bit but for assembling long multitrack pieces nothing I've used so far beats Reaper.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:33pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Iron Maiden: we won't do stadiums
Bruce Dickinson: hold my beer
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:33pm Rich in Washington:

For some reason, even though I knew a set was ending, I started eating a huge mouthful of almonds and then had to go on mic suddenly on my KBOO show the other night. Classy!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:34pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

LOL!!!!
Avatar 6:37pm Martinibomb:

@rich w/reaper you can arrange songs in one track - it's crazy how they let you move audio around where you want on the screen/track etc..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:38pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I'll go have a look after the show :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:39pm Rich in Washington:

yes. I love that. I've composed entire shows on Reaper before. It's pretty swell.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:41pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

This is my favourite lounge cover of all time. It brings me immense joy :-)
Avatar 6:41pm Martinibomb:

I keep singing along with everything.. very singable show maybe a good karaoke list?
Avatar 6:42pm Martinibomb:

maybe we should pre-record ourselves and maybe ask listeners to send recordings of themselves doing karaoke as part of the marathon? our digital version of what they do at Monty Hall
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:43pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I once went in to the hospital radio studios to record some idents, and someone had spilled something on the floor. So I slipped, hit the button that switched studios on the way down, shouted FUCK really loudly. Live. On the air.
And I literally sweated for weeks. Finally I went to the chairman in tears and confessed and he burst out laughing. He said "Our listeners are drugged out of their brains in hospital beds. If they did hear you, they probably thought they were hallucinating."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:43pm Rich in Washington:

OMG!
Avatar 6:44pm Martinibomb:

Hilarious! Were you okay?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:44pm Rich in Washington:

HA! That's hilarious!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:44pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

That's why it took me so long to swear here! lol
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:45pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Completely fine - the chairman thought it was hilarious, thank goodness!
Avatar 6:45pm Martinibomb:

yeh I don't do it much because I'm also part of another station and it would be bad if I accidentally did it there
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:45pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

It still feels weird doing it here.
Avatar 6:46pm Martinibomb:

they fine you $300,000+ for each word or something insane here
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:46pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I mean you all know that's the one thing tattooed into your brain. "Don't swear live on the air!!"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:46pm Rich in Washington:

There's a legendary story among older KBOO DJs about an aging Jazz DJ who one Saturday - with no one else in the station - had somehow gotten his dog's lead and his headphone cable both wrapped around his legs so he was tied to his chair. He actually called for help on the air and someone ran down to the station to assist him. I've had confirmation from more than one DJ that they actually heard it.
Avatar 6:46pm Martinibomb:

u can say I'm pissed off on air but you can't say piss on him.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:47pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Oh no!!! Thank goodness someone came to his rescue!!!
Avatar 6:47pm Martinibomb:

also you cant play songs with lyrics that talk about having sex with dead people. At least that's what Eriin at KBOO told me when I asked.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:48pm Rich in Washington:

I've been in radio jail for letting a 'shit' get by on the air before 10pm once. It's sort of a rite of passage at the station.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:48pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Dead air still weirds me out as well - serious fines for that as well!
Avatar 6:49pm Martinibomb:

that barnes and barnes cemetary girls was specifically a no no she said.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:49pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Someone at the station spaced out for about 30 seconds and cost the station something like a grand.
Avatar 6:49pm Martinibomb:

I think it's odd you can't play a parody song like that. I mean it's clear they are not serious.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:50pm Rich in Washington:

That's news to me. Our old Station Manager used to do the FCC classes and he used to say that 'nothing's indecent after 10pm' as far as music played. I think they're being more conservative these days, or a case of over-compliance out of laziness to do research.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:50pm Otis Fodder:

Quite the groovy listen today Georgy! Cooked up some crazy nachos so gonna go eat. Have a great show MB!
Avatar 6:50pm Martinibomb:

A fine for Dead Air? Wow that sounds kinda crazy
Avatar 6:50pm Martinibomb:

Can't play John Cage?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:51pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

There's the infamous Jools Holland "Tube" incident where he derailed his career for saying the F-word live on Channel 4.
And, of course, the dear old Pistols ;-)
Avatar 6:51pm Martinibomb:

Thanks Otis! Cya
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:51pm Rich in Washington:

I've played that B&B track so many times. I just don't ever ask what I can play. I was trained that I can play anything but the EAS tone.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:51pm Rich in Washington:

but who knows? Apparently a campy fake accent will land you in hot water.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:52pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@MB - yeah. The frequency rules are super strict here. It's something to do with renting the air space almost so you're wasting it or something. I can't remember the exact wording but you get fined. That's why so many DJs have beds.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:52pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Thank you, Otis! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:53pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Martinibomb is next!
www.wfmu.org...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:53pm Rich in Washington:

Yes, I do believe dead air is a no-no here as well. Some stations have a thing that kicks into gear at a predetermined interval if there's no apparently signal.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:54pm Rich in Washington:

That Hugo Strasser's new to me. I mean, I've heard of him, but I had no idea he did whacked out covers like that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:54pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

He's great, isn't he? :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:55pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Thank you all so much for listening :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:55pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I can relax and have a cup of tea now ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:55pm Rich in Washington:

Wonderful show today, DJ GeorgyGirl! Thanks!\
Hope all the tech talk wasn't annoying!
Avatar 6:56pm Martinibomb:

Thank you for all the great selections today. Nice feeling show
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:56pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

No - I loved it :-)
