Music for the Masses 30 – 2 February 2005

For the seven-week Spring term of 2005, Music for the Masses returned with a Wednesday slot, and was an entirely relaxed affair, with the presenter sitting back and operating the controls with his legs crossed. Or maybe I was just posing for the webcam – it’s difficult to know for sure.

Music for the Masses 9 – 16 February 2000

For the uninitiated, Sunrise Radio was a station which used to carry the Independent Radio News around the UK via satellite, and was kind enough to leave a three second gap at the start and end so that stations such as Bay Radio could pick it up. Trying to catch it was a fine art, and relied on your clock being completely accurate…

Notes: A-woo, my first one attempting to get IRN without Sunrise Radio… and it was moderately successful as well – except for a severe panic to get the 12.00 news (a wire had come loose somewhere), and a microphone which wasn’t plugged in. Mmmm, c’est la vie…

Music for the Masses 5 – 15 December 1999

The last show before Christmas 1999 was on Bay Radio on December 15th, and took an entirely non-festive turn. It continued after the New Year, so we’ll pick things up again in a few weeks’ time.

Notes: Not at all bad. Anyway, there’s definitely a conspiracy going on somewhere here, because it would appear that either I do a good show every other week, and alternate, doing a bad one every other other week, or I do my best shows in the face of adversity. Well, at any rate, that was probably my best yet, even though I had to set the studio up myself (which I almost managed too), meaning I didn’t start on time, and also my first link consisted of dead air, since the mic lead wasn’t working. Also, we would appear to have new equipment, just to make my life more complicated… aah well, ne’er mind, eh?
