Marshall McLuhan tells me that with electric media, truth becomes publicly shared. So why should DJ's playlists be privately decided? I'm outsourcing my songs to the entire radio band this week. Blown out rap and r&b via crappy radio reception sounds great to me. 
Is this the first time that the left of the dial is copying the center of the dial rather than vice versa? 
Pop culture. Love these Hi NRG radio stations. 
Wrote a script that compresses songs into mp3s over and over until they sound like total crap. Easy Lover! Hall & Oates! Oh yes. Mashups from DJ Convict Scorpion. Pitch shifted vox from Clare Hubbard's project Sports. John Benter reissue. New Yeh/Wooley/Corsano trio.

Hi Nat & Fred.
I love this one, who is doing this talking bit? about the tribalising, it is interesting. oh I jsut read the comments, I take it it's Marshall talking?
  Wed. 10/5/11 3:25am Andrew:

aw, he died in 1980. sounds an interesting guy, never heard of him before. thanks!
  Wed. 10/5/11 3:31am Nat:

Yep, that's Marshall MacLuhan speaking.
  Wed. 10/5/11 3:33am Andrew:

i love how you make 'crappy' songs sound good & how some songs seem to go together really well, like they were made to.

Marshall was a genius. I gotta read up about him...
  Wed. 10/5/11 3:35am Nat:


You can download some McLuhan stuff from Ubu, including that sample I used.

  Wed. 10/5/11 3:51am Marmalade kitty:

Good morning Nat & listeners :)
  Wed. 10/5/11 3:55am Andrew:

Hi Marmalade Kitty ^_^
you missed this guy Marshall McLuhan, really interesting

this is really weird on headphones, it's moving from left to right O_O
  Wed. 10/5/11 4:03am Andrew:

what's this theme song? it's funny when put with the talking
  Wed. 10/5/11 4:07am Nat:


Hi Marmalaaaaade
  Wed. 10/5/11 4:10am fred:

Nat, I just read your latest blog post: thanks for the shout out, I'm glad you liked that video
  Wed. 10/5/11 4:13am Andrew:

really? hehe, it's funny because macguyver was on earlier today didn't see the start or end so I didn't recognise it. I used to watch it back in the day & thought the song was familiar.
I was reading about a book on the vocoder, it's interesting. i didn't know it was invented in the late 20s!
  Wed. 10/5/11 4:17am Marmalade kitty:

still not found the station you're loooking for, Nat :)
  Wed. 10/5/11 4:21am Marmalade kitty:

Is it possible to tune in to yourself (wfmu) playing live?
  Wed. 10/5/11 4:26am Andrew:

flashback to last weeks singing along to the chart hits over headphones
  Wed. 10/5/11 4:26am Marmalade kitty:

thats so funny! I had the same Phil Collins song in my head! She's an easy lover.. ..never forget it..
  Wed. 10/5/11 4:26am Nat:

Yeah, it is! I did that a few weeks ago for an hour and let it loop until it was all weird feedback.

No prob, Fred! Thanks for the info!
  Wed. 10/5/11 4:40am Andrew:

now it's in my head O_Q

those top40 songs really have a way of becoming earworms
  Wed. 10/5/11 4:53am Andrew:

I had one that someone did, I think it was a Slayer song? encoded into mp3 666 times...it was uh..interesting...
oh no easy lover, should be interesting
  Wed. 10/5/11 4:55am Andrew:

ahh of course..the number of the beast
yessss, that's where i got it from ^_^
  Wed. 10/5/11 4:57am Andrew:

shees an easy steam train
  Wed. 10/5/11 5:05am Andrew:

they all sound like Thomas the Tank Engine is a backup huffer
  Wed. 10/5/11 5:11am Nat:

Whoops. Sorry.
  Wed. 10/5/11 5:32am Andrew:

bit of an abrupt change from the squelchy distorted mp3s to this?
  Wed. 10/5/11 5:58am Andrew:

this is nice. you're finished with the distorted radio stations?
I guess it's nearly finished. Thanks Nat, good show ^_^
