Funny you should mention, dismantlor - I listen to WFMU and its streams on my Roku device and I always hear notification 'donk' sounds on it. I used to think it was programmers leaving their notification sounds enabled, but now believe it's a defect of Roku's software or firmware.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:28pm McGroovey:

I'm listening over the air, and I think I'm hearing different extraneous sounds from the ones the streamers are hearing.

My guess is there's an on-and-off problem with Fabio's connection to WFMU.

Not that there's anything wrong with that.

Durnit, Crudbringer, now you've planted Herbie Hancock's Rock It in my head, and my brain is mixing it with the Kraftwerk. It works, but it's not what I wanted.

Fabulous mix of Kraftwerk inspired music, most influential band since The Beatles?

"The Robots", still one of my favorites of theirs. Never gets old, does it?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:46pm Ike:

Frankly, this is the problem with management having a fetish for absolutely 100% live radio instead of settling for a prerecorded show from a few hours ago that would play more reliably. A lot of DJs' home internet connections are just not up to it. Oh well.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:47pm Threemoons:

@coelocanth yep had those tix also. Glad I at least got to see Heilung in January. I suppose Wardruna in the Fall will be cancelled...
Avatar 5:47pm Photocopy Cha Cha:

The first two albums are so underrated, especially by Kraftwerk! I don't know what to make of Ralf Hütter's claim Florian Schneider was not very involved for years prior to his departure from Kraftwerk.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:47pm chris:

Ike, i was listening to an archive this morn. had same problem. its a problem on the streaming server or upstream from there, me thinks.

@chris, really? Huh, I haven't had any problems with archives, but admittedly I haven't listened to very many lately, except for the excellent *Polyglot* with jesse D., a show y'all should totally check out BTW!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:50pm Bas NL:

I think it was Ralf always claiming they were 'Muzik Arbeiter' and Florian then always countered: No, no, Ralf! I'm not a music worker!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:50pm chris:

Avatar 5:52pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

YESSIR, this was the one Computer Chronicles used. Ruckzuck.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:52pm Rich in Washington:

Ideally, if the DJ records their live show while streaming, the archive can be replaced with a version without the skips, stalls in it.

I actually prefer live shows to pre-recorded shows. Don't get me wrong; some people make great pre-recorded shows, but I just prefer freeform shows myself.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:55pm Rich in Washington:

Yeah, Photocopy, also Ralf and Florian. I meant three. Was just thinking of those two eponymous albums, which I've never owned.

This show has always supported Kraftwerk's great music. Florian was a genius who influenced most popular music of the past 40 years yet most people have never even heard of him. Thanks for the great radio show over the years.
  8:46pm Doctor B.:

I can always trust you to deliver amazing music each and every show. Bowie, Schnitzler and the late, great Florian Schneider from Kraftwerk (rock in peace, Florian!)
