Seems SCNW's still not feeling too chipper so this is a re-run.
Hopefully he's back tomorrow

In the words of our favourite DJ

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-politics, non-bad news thread. We're here for the music, we hope you are too!

Nice to see you and nice to be here. Not nice that Mr. DJ is under the weather. I miss him. Robert Smith can't replace him...

Hello all!
Gonna leave early to help out our local high school robotics team get ready for our annual Pancake Breakfast/Mini-bot challenge.
I get to build the field! (NEVER VOLUNTEER, friends.)

I don't usually  like remasters very much. They're usually compressed to within a dB of their lives. But this has been done so so well. It's like a different album.

Weirdly it wasn't to pricey.
If I'd ordered it via the Cure's store it would have cost about Є40
I ordered from a store in Hungary & it was half that.

Eventually we'll move around to where the remasters fix the previous remasters. The recording industry needs to keep coming up with new reasons why you need to re-purchase that album you already own.

Yeah. It's getting a bit wearisome nowadays.
I kinda like the extras & wotnot (mostly). But I stopped listening to the remastered original album discs as they start to hurt my teeth after about 15 minutes. The original pressings are way better sounding.
And the whole record rip off store day BS of pressing stupid coloured cheapo, yet extortionately priced, vinyl can get to fark.

I usually don't like covers - just someone trying to make a buck off someone else's creativity and prior success.
But this - how can you NOT smile when you hear this? Completely new take on the song. Great choice.

"Original pressing" sounding better would depend on when originally recorded. I know this show is 80s focused, but I also know a lot of us don't restrict our listening to that era. I fully expect that there are remasters that really do improve on the original release's mastering.

Speaking of extras and wotnot ... Microdisney reminded me of this one: putting the "original" track lineup of Viva Dead Ponies (The Fatima Mansions) on the streaming services instead of the North American listing is most definitely not an improvement. Blues for Ceausescu is a far, far better fit with the rest of the album, musically and thematically, than Thursday.
