Revenge of the lawn.

2014/05/17

“Any time you overhear people, if you only hear a second of what they say, it’s always completely stupid.” —OverheardInNewYork.com

Here is the recording of last night’s (2014-05-16) KNYO Memo of the Air: Good Night Radio show ready to download and keep or just play with one click. The recording was made in the broadcast booth and so is complete. No dropouts, no stuttering. The whole show as I did it live, not as it went out over the air, or rather didn’t go out properly over the air.

The machinery that gets the signal from the broadcast booth to the stream server and then the rest of the way to the transmitter site has been problematical all along, and when fixed up and completely solved, as it is every few weeks, is so perfect then goes so wonky in a completely fresh mysterious way, that –and I can’t believe I’m saying this but I’m saying it– I have to seriously suspect malicious sabotage. I mean, really. I’m recommending that we move the broadcast booth from the office in town back to the transmitter site up Highway 20, where there can be a six-foot-long wire directly from the mixing board to the transmitter and you’d have to physically cut the god damn wire to stop it working right. Then if the internet streaming part of the operation fails, who cares. The on-air signal is the priority.

There. That’s out of my system.

You’ll like the show. Even the part where I was trying to troubleshoot the studio-to-transmitter problem and had to put on Don’t Cry For Me, Argentina to get a little more time. Who doesn’t like Don’t Cry For Me, Argentina? Nobody, that’s who. Everybody likes that song, especially in the original German. It was inspired by Doctor Seuss.
