Music for the Masses 36 – 16 March 2005

Show 36 was the last before the three week Easter break, and would see Music for the Masses in its springtime Wednesday slot for the last time. Actually, it could have even been the last outing of the show, as the post-holiday scheduling shakeup always meant a few shows dropped out. Fortunately – or unfortunately – it lived on to die another day, this week with New Order as the Artist of the Week.

Music for the Masses 26 – 15 November 2004

The second Monday evening show saw the station’s webcam working for the first time in 2004, which therefore meant me (right) and my special guest Carl (left) spent much of the show trying to get ourselves seen on the internets.

Music for the Masses 18 – 17 May 2000

One of the perils of the early days of Bay Radio was that it involved presenting from the DJ booth in the Aberystwyth student union. This meant that there was a fair chance that at some point your equipment might be suddenly removed for one reason or another…

Notes: Ooh crumbs, well I’m not one to moan. Well, not too much… but having your levels played with, the lights played with, your entire CD player equipment removed (yes, you guessed it, I didn’t actually choose to play Elton John. Or Looper a second time – especially given how much the latter resembles a pair of new born pants. Well, the former too actually, if it comes to that)…

Music for the Masses 17 – 10 May 2000

If you’ve ever wondered how real radio stations do competitions, the answer is that they make up pretend entries. When I was doing my Bay Radio show, I obviously hadn’t learnt this yet…

Music for the Masses 14 – 22 March 2000

By March 2000, Bay Radio had existed as an actual thing for about a year, and it was going from strength to strength. They still hadn’t quite found the strength to get rid of me yet, but the shows were pretty good all round.

Notes: Excuse me while I blow my own trumpet, but what tunes!!! It definitely helps to know what the record library includes beforehand! Ooh, that’s better. Anyway, on the whole not too bad, including the return of ADVERTS!!! Thus I could roll around almost in hysterics while uncharismatic people rattled on about new launderettes opening soon to the tune of “Popcorn”. Never have I been so amused. Anyway… Oh yes, I also rather naughtily made use of ents’ record player to play some of their records on. “Half the Man” isn’t nearly the tune I remember it being. Also I had my first impartial feedback today, which was “You sound a bit like Simon Bates.” I’m still not sure whether that’s a good or bad thing, but so long as I don’t start sounding like Neale James. Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm, baby…
