It's appropriate this is on CANYON records, there is so much echo. I am digging the Santana-like percussion.
  3:06pm Dave in Leicester:

Good evening
  3:06pm Constant Smiles:

I think there is a channel missing in the mix? Or is it just me? It sounds like it is missing something?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:07pm The Oscar:

Afternoon folks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:07pm Guido from Cologne:

Soething special with the sound.
One chanel comes from the microphone in the hall.
The other is from the turntable
The whole thing in MONO!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:07pm Ken From Hyde Park:

@Constant Smiles - Yes, the intro song seemed amiss. I didn't hear the usual voice-over.
  3:07pm Cooh John:

Hello djsheilab and sophisticates. Happy record fair. Wish I was there to groove and peruse.
  3:08pm still b/p:

Sounds like I’m standing at the back of the ballroom.
Avatar 3:09pm djsheilab:

Hey friends—is it sounding better now? That first song is definitely oddly recorded.
  3:09pm Constant Smiles:

Yeah I think a channel is quieter than the other.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:09pm PBastille:

@still b/p that was my default location. Back of the ballroom, pressed against the wall with the other freaks and geeks
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:09pm Guido from Cologne:

Guess something is wrong.
Sounds interesting though!
Special remix.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:10pm Guido from Cologne:

I know the recording.
And it has vocals.
Avatar 3:11pm djsheilab:

We've got Scott W. working on the sound as I write. Thanks for letting me know, everyone. Fingers crossed it'll get sorted!
  3:11pm sonarearth:

...seems like a phase cancellation of the stereo mix or only one channel ist transmitted...

  3:23pm question:

when did the radiorethink app launch?

is better?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:26pm The Oscar:

That intro makes me want to hear a series of Carpenters songs reimagined as old-timey radio soaps. Up to and including "Calling Occupants of Interplanetary Craft."
Avatar 3:27pm βrian:

Apps schmapps!
Avatar 3:28pm Dominick:

one channel is polarity inverted
"out of phase" in layperson terms
  3:32pm Eric Hat:

Broadcasting from the future. Badass!

“Both channels are in syncs but are out of phase” name that tune

Sheila, let's do a geeky monograph/discography on female-fronted pop groups of the 60s–70s
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:35pm Julie:

is she like super quiet or what?? All I heard was buzzes
  3:36pm Listener Robert:

Whatever you did, it just worked.
Avatar 3:37pm Dominick:

Stereo channels are out of polarity. If you are listening in mono, all center (mono) information will cancel out.
@ Listener Robert: Still bad on the mp3 stream
  3:39pm still b/p:

This sounds like a milder version of Prince’s Let’s Go Crazy.
Avatar 3:39pm Snortley:

Very quiet on 91.1, as if it's unamplified line level.
  3:39pm grtyvr:

@dominick sounds good to me. On web live stream
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:40pm BronwynB:

i love this song so much. this and "little red corvette" are my favorite by prince
  3:40pm still b/p:

Huhbutta- wha...? Who woulda...?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:41pm The Oscar:

  3:41pm P-90:

On the app, sounded like a mic/board problem in the break, but music sounds OK
Avatar 3:41pm Dominick:

@grtyvr: Nope - live MP3 stream listening on iTunes, channels are out of polarity to each other. 40 minutes into the show and still not corrected. Ichiban & Drummer streams are fine
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:41pm MissMelinda:

Sound from the record fair is terrible, what gives? Can't hear Sheila's lovely voice.....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:42pm MissMelinda:

I'm live streaming from the web... for reference to sound issues...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:44pm Guido from Cologne:

cannot confirm, because no mono switch at hand,
seems to know his stuff!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:44pm Julie:

yeah the music is fine but the mic break was almost nonexistent on 91.1
Avatar 3:45pm Dominick:

Nope, music is NG as well. This Annie Williams mono record should be practically inaudible to anyone listening in mono.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:45pm steveo:

very confirmed with mono checkbox on my mac/itunes stream
  3:46pm P-90:

Just tried mono on the IOS app, the channels are def out of phase
Avatar 3:47pm djsheilab:

Aaaaaarggghhhh!!! Sorry everyone :( We'll try to get it sorted.

Sophisticated Boom mooB so far today.
Avatar 3:48pm Lixiviated Life:

i'm just happy for the music mono, stereo, quadraphonic...
  3:49pm Cooh John:

Tell Starfleet there is subspace interference.
Avatar 3:49pm djsheilab:

None of you could hear my mic break?
Avatar 3:49pm D. Lightfoot:

The stream sounds fine though my shitty Mac onboards
  3:49pm P-90:

"Boom mooB" !
  3:49pm Listener Robert:

It was good for a short stretch on WMFU, but not long.

Oh, wait, just as I wrote, it came back.
  3:49pm Ghoffman:

whelp. reception is super weak and audio is mad out of phase. guess I’m listening to something else for a while
  3:49pm colin h:

Fixed for me !
Avatar 3:49pm D. Lightfoot:

Heard it fine but overly-verby
  3:50pm Eric Hat:

Some songs come in clearly...like the one playing presently.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:50pm steveo:

i could hear mic break on aac stream
  3:51pm Eric Hat:

Yr mic break sounded crazy wonky. Like some kind of bit crushing effect or something.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:51pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Listening via the app and in stereo during the mic break. I could hear it.
Avatar 3:51pm Dano59:

note to self: bring Prince records to outdoor DJ gig in June
  3:51pm Eric Hat:

And I think when the song is coming through, one of the channels isn’t really totally there...if at all.
  3:52pm Ghoffman:

oh thank god is sounds like the problem has been resolved. I really didn’t want to have to change stations, all other stations play garbage
Avatar 3:52pm Dano59:

All I heard in the mic break was distance, echo-ey like there was a mic in the room about 20 feet in front of your booth.
Avatar 3:53pm djsheilab:

Yes, looks like it's sorted!
Avatar 3:53pm Dominick:

Still bad, never rectified. Not for a second
  3:53pm Eric Hat:

Only one channel is coming through clearly. Not complaining of course...
  3:54pm P-90:

@ Sheila: I turned the volume up and could make out about 80% of the mic break, but it was very distorted.
Avatar 3:54pm Dominick:

both channels are on but they are out of polarity with each other.
Avatar 3:54pm N.A.R.D.:

I'm kind of glad to discover I'm not the only one having this problem! I thought I was going crazy.
  3:55pm Eric Hat:

It’s definitely a digital issue.
  3:55pm colin h:

Ok maybe it’s not fixed for me it was just that one song sounded fine I dunno
Avatar 3:55pm N.A.R.D.:

I've tried via the app and via tune in and both are crazy messed up
Avatar 3:56pm D. Lightfoot:

Oh wow
Avatar 3:56pm Dominick:

Totally an analog issue

Avatar 3:58pm The Contessa:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:58pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Any hint as to is the problem at the remote end or back at the station? Listening via app in mono and no bueno.

91.1 sounds fine in stereo, but in mono it's a disaster.
  4:06pm Eric Hat:

No matter what it all sounds like very low bit rate. Like a super low quality mp3. Glorious.
  4:06pm grtyvr:

Sounds fine on the app but still sounds like it is being fed through a compressor/limiter on the web.

Gotta say Sheila, you put on a hell of a show. It helps me, (at work bein a jerk, ya know) and thanks.

Thank you for saying that SSS. Bit panicky cos of all these comments about the sound. I saved so many of my best records for this show!

wow this is a great version of Magic. I heard Juliana being interviewed about this album, and she got choked up about how much of an influence Olivia was on her!

  4:11pm P-90:

Juliana's brilliant inspiration to do this album
Avatar 4:12pm Dominick:

Just checked the app on my iPhone. Channels being out of polarity cause all center panned sound to cancel out. Juliana is practically not there. lots of guitar, organ, and reverb
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:13pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Avatar 4:14pm Dominick:

Problem is on every variant of the stream, the pop up player, and the app. Gotta be a mis-wiring coming out of the mixer at the remote.

Pop up is working fine for me, if the sound quality is off, it is minimal

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:19pm The Oscar:

Music sounds fine to me, but the mic sounds a little Max Headroom-y. Either way, great show :)
Avatar 4:19pm Dominick:

Channels are now "in phase" but now it sounds gurguly
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:20pm Guido from Cologne:

The microphone sounded like digital issues all the time.
Since Laura Veirs' track there seem also to be digitall issues on the music.
Sounds like a cheap digital pitch-shift or time stretch.

The Record Fair. I wonder how much my Mint Klark Kent Kinetic Kid would fetch?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:35pm Mark Hurst:

Music sounds great, but Sheila's mike has some sort of audio problem. Listening online via the 128mbps stream.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:36pm doctorjazz:

The Pop Up sounds the same
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:37pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Just to freak everyone out, now play some records that are intentionally recorded out of phase.

  5:41pm grtyvr:

that was a GREAT set.
Avatar 5:41pm TehBadDr:

Records? Is that something I can download? Or is there an App for that?
Avatar 5:43pm βrian:

Downloading is when you schlepp them down the stairs; uploading them is the reverse.
Avatar 5:44pm βrian:

Heh. Sheila mispronounced "mispronunciation." Extra credit for that! Tee hee.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:44pm Adrian in London:

@ßrian You're never stronger than when you move house and carry your vinyl up and down stairs. Much cheaper than going to the gym.
Avatar 5:45pm TehBadDr:

Schlepp! Indeed all those milk crates full of MP3s!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:45pm Guido from Cologne:

Joe Meek!:-D
Avatar 5:45pm βrian:

I'd prefer chopping wood, really. You know how they say it warms you thrice ...

Prefer this version!

Don't knock mispronunskiaton. -- Popeye

I used to think Joe Meek's obsession began with David Seville's Chipmunks records
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:52pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Thanks for so much fun today, Sheila. I hope the technical difficulties didn't wrack your nerves. Have a good time at the record fair.
Avatar 5:53pm βrian:

Yes, the technical problems were akin to surface noise. Just added ambience.

Thanks, Sheila and Audio Crew.
