Quiet American  Backwaters   Options One-Minute Vacations  2002  MP3  The backwaters of Kerala, southern India. My wife and I chartered a houseboat and drifted for a few days along quiet canals; this MP3 captures a moment of evening rain from our bamboo roofed bedroom: rain on the river, crickets softly singing, the voices of our small crew. In the first few seconds, a frog plashes past. This moment was isolated for 60" somewhere, a project by Ven Voisey. quietamerican.org  * ***   0:14:30 (MP3 | )

Jay Thomas  Mission Wind   Options One-Minute Vacations  2004  MP3  This was recorded on an unusually windy night in a narrow passageway connecting the back of my apartment building to the street. Blasts of wind caused a wooden door to creak while rattling a paper sign. One particularly strong gust carries the faint sound of a wind chime and a barking dog. Toward the end of the recording a neighbor starts his truck, breaking the solitude... Recorded around 10 p.m., May 4, 2004, in the Mission District of San Francisco on a Sony MZ-R50 minidisc recorder with a set of Core Sound's Low-Cost Binaural microphones.  * ***   1:44:54 (MP3 | )

Hmmm...
Have to listen to KTJU to hear the show - it's just the regular Drummer Stream on GTDR m3u url.

I'm going to try the same thing as a birthday surprise for others, though.
Avatar    Wed. 7/17/13 2:15pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

WFMU Drummer stream seems fine to me! (WTJU, too. No idea what's on KTJU.)
Avatar Wed. 7/17/13 2:18pm Rich in Washington:

@Kenzo: it's sporadic. It plays KLERE, then inexplicably kicks into the GTDR stream, then, I would assume, returns to KLERE.
I've found the most stable option is to listen to WTJU (which is what I meant to type, not KTJU - I'm West of the Mississippi so I resorted to putting a K on the call letters).
Avatar    Wed. 7/17/13 2:19pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Rich: You mean, it's doing that today?
Avatar Wed. 7/17/13 2:20pm Rich in Washington:

It did for me. Now I am only listening to WTJU.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 7/17/13 2:20pm pacific standard simon:

Today, IIRC, is Dave The Spazz's birthday. So be sure to spazz-out at least once today.
Avatar    Wed. 7/17/13 2:21pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

That sucks! It did it multiple times, today?
Avatar Wed. 7/17/13 2:22pm Rich in Washington:

Not sure, as soon as it did it, I switched over. When I just now checked WFMUGTDR it was OK, though.
Avatar Wed. 7/17/13 2:23pm Rich in Washington:

Now I'm listening to GTDR and WTJU together. Sound good, just slightly out of sync. It's like listening to an stereo demonstration LP with ping pong sounds.
Avatar Wed. 7/17/13 2:24pm Rich in Washington:

Does your streaming software tally skips? Maybe when it skips, it kicks GTDR's auto DJ on?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 7/17/13 2:24pm pacific standard simon:

It's a feature, not a bug.
