Here’s a sound collage from “Far Go Traders”, a group from Zagreb, Croatia that I’ve featured on this week’s “Could9” program at http://indyradio.nu:2012/cloud9.m3u - the entire show plays continuously, 24/7, until 4pm Central Time Saturday, when a new show begins.
Saturday, July 16th and have not missed a week, but it’s been awhile since these have been properly announced. It’s about 1:00 pm Central and we’re tuning up - tune in with iTunes, JavaTunes, or Winamp as explained elsewhere in this blog. After the live event, new material will be added to the /bluegrass and /newgrass streams.
Here’s an excerpt from a performance piece of mine with Laura Koenig playing flute in the now-defunct Summit Street Gallery, as part of the show “Artifacts of Five”. Native sounds of the original Mac 512k interweave with the virtuosity of a live flute to create an intricate sound canvas that is dispersed throughout the space in “loops” after the performance is complete.
Here’s Janey, Eric and Jim in a brief excerpt from today’s live bluegrass at Cherry Street Guitar Company. There’ talking between the 2 songs, it won’t require too much patience and might be educational -:)
Here is 4 minutes from our session, the Saturday before Easter, at Cherry Street Guitar Company. Eric Berg joined us, and Jim Brady does the vocal on “The good things outweigh the bad” - an old traditional country tune.
Here’s a medley we heard Thursday night in Galesburg at the Sandburg birthplace. Woody Guthrie songs. The final one re-entered the Public Domain after a long court battle. The details bore me. The music was fun, and the full hour will be scheduled soon on KGB-Radio.
Saturday morning, when the usual crowd gathers to improvise bluegrass, we broadcast live. Otherwise, an archive of our most recent session begins at the top of the hour. The current session from April 9th plays for 1 hour online - the second hour will be back online soon.
If you take the link above, and just get a slim Quicktime player that plays for a few seconds and quits, it means you should download the Winamp Player - or something similar. then when you click the link, it will play the entire broadcast, and enable your ability to access thousands of other SHOUTcast and Icecast stations.
It’s not as smooth as it was the past 2 weeks, but today’s show is up. I’ll try to add all of this week’s show’s in rotation but I can’t guarantee I’ll have time to post a schedule like this one - consider it a proof of concept - this is how it will be when we are fully equipped and have the time.
The main question asked at the council candidate forum on Thursday was made as open as possible, allowing the candidates to discuss what they would bring to the council beyond the routine business. They were each given 3 minutes, this section was about 20 minutes total. Although was some distortion in the audio at times, all of it is intelligible and most of it is quite good. The remaining files will all be at Urbana Indymedia.
Stig Christensen has the simplest player for internet radio. It works great and I can’t recommend it highly enough. He’s been refining this for 6 years, and the latest version is from January of this year. Get it free from his site.
Part one - almost a full hour of Cornhuskers, by Carl Sandburg is the newest addition.
Our complete playlist for today is here.. If that doesn’t work try this format The latest from Democracy Now! starts at the top of each hour. Download the playlist to tune in. For best results, open the playlist with WINAMP.
