News: August 2009 Archives

This is a notice to you all that for a few days once again there may be a lull in posts here on Fun in the Murky. There are two reasons for it this time.

  1. My computer seems to have coughed and croaked on me. it started as the motherboard fan behaviing poorly and now it's looking like it's going to the shop for repairs tomorrow. I do have another computer in the house (of course), and I do have a computer to use at work, but all of my audio software is on the one that just tanked. Just after a fresh install of everything too. No lost data as it's on an external drive so that's a positive at least.
  2. The second reason is a little more personal so I'll leave it at this; I'm sick and need a few days of in and out hospital care to be able to claim to be healthy again. Nothing serious. Just annoying because of the time wasted sitting in a room and not being able to listen to anything more than the elevator music piped in. I'll pipe up later in the week if this will affect Bleep Radio. I suspect at this point that unless someone were to send me in a mix before Wednesday morning Bleep would be cancelled this week. My good soundcard is on the PC that went tits up!

Keep it real folks. And if one of you does want to send in a mix to have air on Bleep this week let me know. Send me an email or post here in the comments and we'll sort it out.

Takeover the Airwaves!

Vote 1 Vote

A local scene website is currently running a contest and the winner of the contest gets their mix aired on a semi-local radio station. The two mixes that are currently 'neck and neck' are my own and another local boy by the alias of Furious George.

Now you'd probably have to register to participate (contribute mixes for future contests or to vote), but if you are up for go right on ahead.


It'd be nice to saturate the airwaves with some good ol' Techno. Even if it is just one mix per month.

Last Sunday I mentioned that I was going to be participating once again in a Second Life event at a place called 'The Drome'. It all went smoothly of course and this time around I had enough wits about me to make sure the show was recorded. This week's Bleep Radio is that recording. 2 hours and 32 Minutes in total makes it a heavy download, but a good listen.

Today also marks the first time Bleep is airing on it's new day. For the last several years Bleep has aired and been posted on Thursdays. That has now changed. Because of problems with streaming the show I had recently stopped the live broadcast. The good folks at livesets have come up with a solution, but it required airing at a different day and time. Bleep's official time stamp will now be 20:00 GMT on Wednesday's which I believe is bit better for those of you on that side of the world.

Back in March I did a live stream in Second Life for a friendly group of people trying to push music around. Back in April I used a re-recording of a part of that set as a Bleep Radio show. When I mentioned everything in the Bleep Radio post I also promised to give a heads up before it happened again.

Consider this you're heads up. On Sunday August 23rd, 2009 there'll be another live stream in Second Life.

There's a brief blog post on the site that is used to promo the events they hold for those of you who know how to navigate Second Life. For those of you who don't know too much...join the club. It wasn't too tough to figure out. Just jump in!

More info

The whole idea is admittedly still a little foreign to me, but when it comes to people who gather to listen to music I could care less where it takes place. Pull up a chair and turn up the speakers.

A mixed up bit of House and a fun variety of Techno of various shades to while away your Thursday afternoon. I was actually going to keep it a little lighter and more 'sitting on the porch in the sun', but it turned a little darker at some point.

Yesterday I was rooting around in the backseat of my car to find a CD and stumbled across an old burnt copy of Bleep Radio #1. Time does fly doesn't it? 172 sets later and Bleep is still going strong. Wavering only periodically and never very seriously. I seemingly still have plenty in me to share.

I'm currently tossing around the idea of a monthly mail-out, a physical item mail-out that is. Bleep has never partaken in 'mailing lists'. I hate unsolicited email as much as the anyone of you (if not more). Of course I'm kinda brain-storming aloud here, but it would probably consist of a DVD burnt containing the last 6 months of Bleeps plus a selection of the newest live-sets and whatnot downloaded from the Internet. I don't want it to be strictly a contest. More like a Bleep listener random selection. For that to work though I need to know who is listening. Comment, email, phone - I don't care how, but everyone who gets in touch each month regarding the show will be entered into a random draw. Sound good? Let's see!

This month's numbers are admittedly a little lower than last month. However, that's probably because last month was our first foray into the 1,000,000+ successful page request club. I'm going to go out on a limb and suggest that this month was affected in a negative way by the lack of new releases I could find to post. I know I get cranky when the record order is non-existent or smaller than usual.

Let's kick start the month of June of with a Top Ten list compilation. Post a Top Ten in the comments to this post or email it to me ( and in a week or so I'll combine them all into a single post. It'll give us a chance to see what else the FitM folks are listening to. No stipulations attached. It can be new or old material. I'll post mine to get the ball rolling later today.
