The mixing console replaced and the compressor working. So it’s looking up a bit. Hopefully, soon, I will get the new stuff in.
Sorry guys and gals. A self-made insert cable, became the end of my recording equipment. “I have become death – destroyer of mixing consoles”. A new one is coming my way in a couple of days. Before then, no more station upgrades. I have plenty of troubles… But the mixer isn’t one of them. It’s […]
The first week is over and nothing catastrophical has occurred. I moved the shoutcast server to another system to keep everything running. Other than that, everything is functioning as it should. The addition of new tunes will happen next week, as this weekend has been extremely busy for me. So what’s coming: More spoken commentary […]

Sturgeon’s law (or Sturgeon’s revelation) simply states that “ninety percent of everything is crap.”. Sounds a bit harsh, no? But there is merit to it as many Amiga modules are just garbage. Sifting through the hundreds and thousands of available modules in this world is quite a task. I listen to the test station as […]
This Sunday, that’s where it’s at!
