Awesome. I'll tune in.

I now have the capability to make proper MP3 files, Cram.  If you want some brain damage for your next show, let me know.

Right.  Give me the week to throw some shit together, and I'll set up you the bomb.

Any new movement here? I wouldn't mind running some music or Eris-knows-what.

Good luck.  Enki signs up for all the good slots 6 months in advance, and then plays "French Experimental Music" for 12 hours at a stretch.

I have one scheduled two-hour slot, and no problem with playing when there's dead air. There's a difference.

Rat, request a slot and I'll respect it. Or, don't and just play shit whenever there's dead air. Seems to be the done thing.

Cool, I think, since my own schedule is pretty erratic right now Ill just bump on whenever there's dead air and i have little else to do.

It's basically all dead air. I think I'm the only person who automated a show.

There may be a connection there.

how'd you automate your show, enki?

There is. When shows aren't automated, if people can't be arsed to broadcast on their allocated timeslot, nothing gets broadcast. It's easy enough to write a script to broadcast a show at a given time for a given amount of time -- and when you do, your show broadcasts during the appropriate timeslot even if you're asleep or dead. I strongly recommend it for anyone getting a timeslot, since it avoids the whole problem of determining whether someone is late on their show or merely not bothering.


Cram, I wrote a script that runs shoutcast's little broadcasting app in the background, waits two hours, and then kills it. It's a little more complex now, because it also posts an announcement to twitter and refreshes the playlist, but that's basically the brunt of the script. Then, I set a cronjob that runs said script every Tuesday at noon EST. The script can be made available if anyone is interested.

Automating shows would give the whole thing a chance to work, I think.  I have tuned in 5 times.  The first time, it was that awful rubbish from France you were playing, and for which I have only BEGUN to take the piss. 

The other 4 times it was dead air.  Nada.  Nothing.

So I stopped going.

A decent auntomated selection is what keeps me tuned into the hometown's college radio.  Their recent batch of PSA's and quality degredation has made me give them up for a spell though.
