I know. It’s been a while. And I apologize. With all the holidays and hullabaloo coming at me, I kinda took a break from the blog. And then somehow I got bogged down in a painful post. And that post will be up here shortly, but I wanted to come up for air just to let you know I’m still here, typing and listening and fooling around.
Actually, I have been sorta busy. One of the things I’ve been doing is playing around with a new webstream, which (at least for now) I’m calling “Radio Kitchen Radio.” And you’re welcome to check it out, by clicking on the little icon below that happens to match the media player scenario on your computer.
What’s playing? Well, the same kind of crap that I feature on the blog– airchecks and bandscans of shortwave and AM radio broadcasts. It’s kind of a grab bag, some good music, some odd talk radio, and then there’s that wonderful sound of throbbing faraway stations bumping around in the dark. And of course, all sorts of people talking and squawking in languages I don’t understand. I like it. Maybe you will too. If you’re looking for some interesting background noise while you toil away online, try it out. There’s a bunch of scary radio from September 11, 2001 I recorded here in New York in the rotation. And if you like WHVW half as much as I do, you’ll be happy to know there’s a couple dozen hours of that station in the rotation too. And I’m just gonna keep adding more radio recordings to the pile.
I’ll be in a day or two or three with a real post. Honest.
My friend David Goren is contributing some interesting odds and ends for my little radio station. And if you’ve got some compelling AM or SW airchecks, bandscans or tidbits, drop me an email. I’m interested. And I’m equally curious to hear any feedback on the stream content.
Meanwhile, let me finish up this post that has taken me too much time already. I’ll be back…
