Pista and NeoMoxie are in charge of the thread today, and i likely won't be around much. but no spitballing the subs, they'll be submitting progress reports on you lot,

Eh, pretty good tune, lyrics better than the notes. Yeah, low-hanger. Figured it was easier than U.S. Drag.

No, the more unknown the better! This show has always been a great cache of underplayed gems - bands and songs. I don't think there's any radion show like it that uncovers good stuff that folks might have missed.

This is Chris Catalyst's band (ex Sisters) & I'd dearly love to see them because they are completely brilliant. But they never play outside of the UK.

Radion (physics), a scalar field in quantum field theory in spacetimes with additional dimensions.
Last week's show is all starting to make sense now

i would just like to point out that i agreed with you 100%.

You are attached to another object by an inclined plane wrapped helically around an axis? (I think we are doing fancy physics in the thread today)

OMG that would be AWESOME!

OH CRAP, they're talking about Shirley Jackson?? If I'd known that, I'd have tuned in a lot earlier.

Good... whatever you are in the middle of.

Can't get used to the fact that the threads start an hour earlier than the shows. I'm always late no matter how hard I try to be on time. It must be another time problem.

Random question: I decided to have a Blue Peter listening party on Friday (just to keep it 80s here), and discovered that I needed to apply what I'm pretty sure is the opposite of the RIAA playback curve, as in I needed to suppress the bass and boost the treble, to make it sound good. I'm assuming that means I completely stuffed up the digitizing -- I thought I had sampled it with a flat response and then split and processed with the RIAA curve, but I'm now thinking I may have used the wrong curve. Can anyone confirm, based on my description of the sound, that, yes, I did indeed mess it up and need to redo those?

Fortunately I did most of my collection with a newer digitizer that handled that part automatically for me, so it's only about 10 LPs that need to be redone.
