@programmetracks and other random updates

As usual the programme will be live tonight at 10pm, and tonight we’ll debut a new feature. As each song plays, the artist an song title will be posted to a second twitter account, @programmetracks. So if that is something you are interested in, check it out. You can view the updates without actually having a Twitter account, so don’t let that scare you off..

You may have noticed the little “This is blahblahblah, and you are listening to grahams’ completely normal radio programme’ drops which I pepper into each show. New drops are always welcome, so if you have a computer and a microphone, please feel free to send them my way. And don’t feel the need to stick directly to the ‘script’. I’ll be debuting a special drop tonight which goes completely off script…

Some listeners have asked me why there isn’t a podcast version of the show. The short answer to that is that while it is technologically easy for me to do so, my streaming license only covers streaming, so I can’t legitimately provide a podcast without obtaining yet another license (which would mean more money). Obviously, this might be something I would consider should a deep-pocketed patron of the programme come along, but until then… If you are interested in some of the bizarre/draconian limitations on my streaming license, check out this page over at LoudCity.

As always, You can send your requests, comments, complaints, suggestions, or demands over at the Contact page. I hope you tune in tonight, and spread the word about the programme!

I heard reports of the stream dropping a few times..  If this happens usually a simple reconnect will do the trick.  You can also try increasing the buffer size in your player (in iTunes the way to do this is Preferences->Advanced->Streaming Buffer Size)

Tonight’s Failed Show

My cable modem crapped out about 40 minutes into tonight’s show (and still hasn’t returned), so unfortunately that means the show is over this week.  I’ll try to get the abbreviated podcast posted once RCN brings my cable modem back up.

The Theme Song

A listener requested that I post the lyrics to the programme theme song, and I figured I should probably give a little history about it too.

Back in September of 2009, I had purchased the “I am T-Pain” app on my iPhone on a whim, and was messing around with it.  Out of the blue it occurred to me to record a theme song for the programme.  I didn’t really think much about it, or write any of the lyrics down, it was entirely improv.  It was done in one take (although there was a mini-take before where I got two lyrics in and started cracking up).

The backing track is T-Pain’s song “Bartender” and you can also download the programme theme song.
