Lie to me.

2013/04/14

Here’s last Friday night’s (2013-04-12) Memo Of the Air show on KNYO-LP in Fort Bragg (CA), ready to listen to right away or download and keep for free.

And here’s the same show in even lower sound quality and at half the file size. Music doesn’t sound as good when the file is this compressed, but if that doesn’t bother you and you’re only in it for the reading, then maybe this is what you want. Try both files and see.

This show is extra-special in that it has the quirk of a weird faint one-second-or-so echo happening the entire time, probably due to my not having set the stream program properly when I signed on (for the stream that goes to the transmitter site). There’s an on-screen control that should be turned all the way down during a live show, and I might not have been sufficiently aggressive about doing that. It really points up the sharp whistle that attends when I say the letter S. As an echo in the quiet places between words it sounds like someone talking in a room farther down the hallway, or like alien insects.

Also I forgot about the problem the heater has with its tilt-alarm suddenly blaring sometimes for no reason at all, and it blared, and you can enjoy my recorded surprise reaction. Just like with the echo situation, this is a feature, not a bug. This is something the big boys in the broadcasting racket won’t do for you. Because they don’t respect you the way KNYO does and the way I do.

Oh, and here are some things to look at and/or think about and/or play with:

Video of Annette Funicello, now dead at 70, dancing around like a fairy and being sung about back before even the beach movies.

Tax Evaders game. (Move the fist with your mouse, then click on the fist to fire, um, fist lasers, I guess.)

And beautiful math. (Linda sent this).

  1. Y’know what I’d like? To stream instead of downloading. I wonder how to do it…

  2. To listen to KNYO streaming in real time go to http://noyoradio.ehost.com and click on Listen to KNYO. In Windows or Ubuntu, to listen to my recorded show, left-click on the show link. That opens your default player and begins to play nearly instantly, and you can drag the time bar to any point in the show. To download and keep the file, right-click on the show link then save it. I don’t know how to do things in other operating systems or with a phone. I think what you might be wishing for would be to somehow click on the recorded show file and listen but not have your phone use up your data allotment buffering the entire file but only use the bandwidth necessary to listen to what you’re hearing at the moment. I don’t know how to set that up. If you figure out how, let me know, and thanks.
