PROGRAMMING NOTE:

First of all, if you're new here, WELCOME! We hope you stick around, and we hope you post.

There are several ways to catch the show:

You can catch it straight from the KUCI 88.9FM website:

https://kuci.org/wp/listen/

You can listen via mobile or desktop on TuneIn:

https://tunein.com/radio/KUCI-889-FM-s35860/

You can listen via mobile or desktop on Streema:

https://streema.com/radios/KUCI_88.9FM

(note: the app for Streema is "Simple Radio")

You can listen via mobile or desktop on Radio Garden:

http://radio.garden/listen/kuci/A58GSAOF

Lastly, we stream live on iTunes. Just open iTunes and look for live radio streaming, and search for us, KUCI 88.9FM.

A couple notes:

We unfortunately cannot podcast or post show recordings, so if you miss the broadcast, you miss it - it's an FCC thing (seriously).

But we post a text playlist after the show at the bottom of the thread, and we also post a YouTube playlist after the show here:

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCWLmRhgwtylQbd_QUxmgFeA/playlists

And if you hear a song that you just can't wait until the end of the show (or the end of the block) to find out what it was, the playlist is also live-Tweeted here:

https://twitter.com/socalnewwaver (no account or sign in needed to view)

Lastly, and most importantly, this is a non-Covid, non-politics, non-bad news thread. We're here for the music, we hope you are too!

Hello everyone
 
2022-09-27 11:36:58 AM  
also programming note:

today and tomorrow are reruns. we've got all kinds of non radio friendly noise happening. i've requested a couple non-italo disco reruns. so fingers crossed you lot don't have to listen to that.

also, also programming note:

sonic supernova survives for at least another quarter. there will not be a thread today as it's a repeat, but it will be back new and live next tuesday at the usual time.

I listened to the new Tiny Blue Ghost album this weekend.
It's quite unassuming & floaty but with this lobbed in like some sort of aural hand grenade
Wait until about 1:35. It gets a bit death metal gaze all of a sudden

Just backed into these guys from your post. I Like it - kinda Cocteus on cough medicine. Until your Fragile Coward track. Not fond of the 2:30 song format on the majority of tracks - it feels like I'm running through samples, rather than completed tracks.

Repeat or no, it will be good for some music today. Had to evacuate for Ian, and had to have our oldest kitty put to sleep yesterday (failing kidneys, seizures started last week). Pretty sure she made an appearance here in the past. This is her in her natural habitat a couple weeks ago:

Thanks all. One of the other 2 kitties is giving lots of love, but that may be more due being in a strange place, but I'm going to pretend she's comforting us. The other one has been hiding under a couch for 18 hours.

Thanks. Stay safe over there also. Still a chance you could get a bit of a swipe from Ian.

I'm so sorry, my deepest condolences. It's a terrible pain to see them going on the other side of the bridge alone.
If any comfort may be found in such moments, it's the fact that they no longer suffer.
Hugs.

Question. If an alternative artist covers a song by another alternative artist, does that cancel out the alternativeness of the song and render it mainstream?
 
2022-09-27 1:35:33 PM  
This is a spectacular cover.
I do like Monsoon's version too. & Danielle Dax's. & Teh Mish's.

Madison_Smiled: Question. If an alternative artist covers a song by another alternative artist, does that cancel out the alternativeness of the song and render it mainstream?


That depends on whether alternative is a negative or a fraction. And if covers are multiplication or addition. And let's not even consider whether or not we're dealing with transformation functions or complex numbers

I was told there would be no math.
