Online Radio stations

Satellite

from Don (ca. 2010)

As broadcast radio continues to drive itself into self-extinction with their worship of mediocrity (the new American disease), there's a new type of radio called satellite radio. You can buy a satellite radio for your car and subscribe. Not sure about availability for your area. But you can go to www.xm.com and listen to some good programming, free on your computer. All their programmers are supposed to be really into whatever type of music they program, so it's music by and for music lovers, apparently, rather than music haters ... I mean businessmen.

XM

from Don (ca. 2010)

I finally broke down and got XM Radio for the car. Read, listen or watch the rest here: www.xm.com and listen to what kind of stations they have. Only $200 for a Delphi setup at Best Buy, plus $10 a month. The Loft and XM Cafe are probably my favorite stations. Deep Tracks has the lesser-known oldies. Quite a few hard and alternative type rock. Also there are the various decade channels, which are all hits from that decade. There are comedy channels and talk also, but I haven't checked them out yet. Good jazz, blues and classical. Haven't heard a commercial yet, but some stations supposedly have some. There's no going back to FM! I don't even consider FM to be MUSIC anymore - it's just advertising and noise. Anybody who drives a lot (lives in So. Cal) NEEDS this. The Delphi receiver's the way to go because you can move the receiver around from car to home or to another car.

Old Music, Newly Uploaded

by bill - 2008-10-01 ( culture / music / piano ) [html version]

[Updated: 2022-06-09 01:02:15]

Here's some piano music I've composed over the years, mostly from the late 80s and early 90s. I rarely play nowadays. None of the compositions (if you can call them that) had names until just now. And none of it is very professionally played or recorded, but it's all I could do!

Still, all rights reserved by me. Feel free to download and play them, but if you use them professionally/monetarily in any way, you'll need my permission first.

Enjoy:

Mr. Happy's 18th Annual Unusual Christmas Music Podcast

by bill - 2009-12-06 ( culture / music / radio / holidays ) [html version]

Seasons Greetings,

You can "tune in" via your favorite mp3 player to the show: radio show

What can you expect to hear? About 500 songs (over 24 hours of non-repeat music!) that fall into one or more of the following categories:

  • musicians I like that happened to make a Christmas song (e.g. Ride, Teenage Fanclub, Thin White Rope, Julian Cope, Go-Betweens, Jazz Butcher, Wedding Present)
  • musicians YOU actually heard of who made the odd holiday song (e.g. REM, Beatles, Run DMC, Cyndi Lauper, Ramones, Killers, Neil Young, Prince)
  • songs that fly in the face of tradition and celebrate/mock something like consumerism (e.g. "X-mas at K-Mart," "Burn down the Malls," "I Hope I Sell A Lot of Records (at Christmastime)")
  • songs that are seeped in tradition played in an unusual way (e.g. "We Three Kings" to an synth-pop, electro-dance beat, "Silver Bells" as an up tempo punk jingle)
  • beautifully performed standards (e.g. "O Come, O Come, Emmanuel" by Belle & , "Coventry Carol" by Alison Moyet)
  • truly original xmas music (e.g. "My First Christmas As A Woman" by the Vandals, "Santa Claus" by Throwing Muses which is an awkward yearning for the man in the big red suit)
  • Christmas around the world (e.g. songs about Christmas In...Copenhagen, Fallujah, Haiti, Heaven, Hell, Hollis, Jail, Nevada, New Zealand, Paradise, Prison, Suburbia, Tunisia, Vietnam, Waikiki)
  • holiday songs are not just for Christians anymore (e.g. "The Chanukkah Scoot" by Bunnygrunt, "Santa Doesn't Come to Little Jewish Children's Houses" by the Yid Kids, "What we do on Christmas" by Atom & His Package)
  • not the barking dogs variety novelty record (e.g. Weird Al Yankovic, Mojo Nixon, Joey Ramone, Martin Mull, Monty Python, Dread Zeppelin)
  • so bad it hard to believe (e.g. The cast of the TV show Bonanza, RuPaul, Ted Franko, Wesley Willis, Debbie Dab, Bryan Adams )
  • so rare, it took me years to track down, and even if it's not very good - it's really, really hard to find (e.g. New Order's "Ode to Joy" from 1982 limited edition flexi-disc handed to Manchester,England club goers upon entrance to a Christmas party)
  • bands that have many Christmas songs (e.g. The Fall, Low, St. Etienne, Sufjan Stevens, They Might Be Giants, XTC, Yo La Tengo, Flaming Lips)
  • and the wildcard - "it sounded good at the time"

Sure. I know what you are thinking. "18 years and it still sounds that bad?" Yes, like a fine wine that's been opened year after year...it's basically vinegar by now. My motto is that there is something to offend everyone!

Cheers and happy holidays. Mr Happy

aka Michael

To tune in with iTunes (you don't need to use iTunes - this should work with any mp3 player such as winamp, real, etc.)

  1. copy the url: href="/
  2. open iTunes
  3. Under the Advanced menu select "Open Audio Stream"
  4. paste in the above url
  5. hit "OK"

At this point you should be able to see the show name, artist & song titles. Let me know if you need help configuring.

Newly Discovered Radio Station

by bill - 2009-12-08 ( culture / music / radio ) [html version]

I just got my car back from the shop. $1500. Ouch!

On the way home, though, I turned on the radio. All my preset stations were gone. Right. Whenever they reset the onboard computer, it resets my radio station presets. Kinda weird that it would, actually. Doesn't the radio have its own "memory" separate from the car's computer? Apparently not.

Anyway, punching the buttons just to see what the radio decided to set for me, I happened upon 107.9, apparently known as Q108. They were actually playing songs from this decade! And it wasn't rap/crap! No way! Yes, way. The reception is spotty here because the station actually comes out of Clarksville. I guess they've got that large younger population stationed at Fort Campbell that they're catering to. Anyway, I love it.

So, for those odd occasions when I forget my MP3 player and am forced to listen to broadcast radio, I'll tune in 107.9, so long as it comes in. Or, I can go to q108.com and listen through the internet.

Speaking of which, I came across an article yesterday about internet radio in your car! It was being offered by Blaupunkt in partnership with someone else. Unfortunately, it was only offered in Australia, apparently. Even there I'm not sure it ever came to fruition. Sure would be nice, though, assuming the 3G reception is acceptable. Then again, if you're going to pay for a 3G connection, you'd might as well go with Sirius XM radio. I used to have that, and loved it. It's just that when I had to start tightening my budget, that was one of the first things to go. God, I hate budget tightening! :)

But I digress ...

Lies Lies Lies

by bill - 2013-07-10 ( culture / music / conspiracies ) [html version]

Lyrics from a Frank Zappa song:

"You will obey me while I lead you
And eat the garbage that I feed you
Until the day that we don't need you
Don't go for hel
...no one will heed you
Your mind is totally controlled
It has been stuffed into my mold
And you will do as you are told
Until the rights to you are sold"cheese it, the cops!: lies lies lies.


"also, if you have any tendency to be satisfied with Obama etc's reassurances about all the limits and warrants that are supposedly in place, you have really lost your mind. how many times do people have to lie, evade, distort, before you stop believing them? it's their job to lie: it's their sworn oath to lie by their own account; by their own definitions, it is treason not to lie. they're currently lying about the fact that they were lying to you before. and yet you take them seriously."

A bunch of songs have been left off simply because they've been played to death. Some songs are on here only because I like (try) to sing along, or maybe it has a killer riff/refrain/sequence but the rest of the song is nothing special. :) This page uses affiliate links, which means we earn a tiny (and I do mean tiny) commission if you make a purchase after clicking that link.

    One of the All-time Great Rock Era Lyricists

    by bill - 2017-03-08 ( culture / music / lyrics ) [html version]

    Listening to Don Henley this morning. He is one of the all-time great lyricists/poets. Just thought I'd say so. Then Don McLean came on, so... ?? Of course, they can both be among the greatest, but Henley is probably THE greatest.

    And then there's my brother Don (known professionally as Aaron Holmes), who is a pretty good lyricist. So, maybe it's a "Don" thing?

    Cassette Tape Converted to Mp3

    by bill - 2020-06-27 ( culture / music / tech ) [html version]

    [Updated: 2021-02-16 13:10:59]

    Cool! I am getting one of these. I am including an affiliate link here. This sounds like a scam post, but I really am going to buy this! :)


    UPDATE: Piece of crap. Do NOT waste your time or money. There is a constant hum in the background of my sample recorded songs (side 1 of End of the Innocence, FYI). The FF and REW buttons are switched, so it took a minute to figure out how to get to the start of the tape. And, topping it off, it looked like it was about to mangle the tape. When I stopped the rewind and pulled the cassette out, the ribbon was twisted.

    On the subject of converting, this site seems good for converting various digital formats from one to the other. They do more than just MP4 to FLV, but this is the link I'm using right now: MP4 to FLV Converter

    #1 Country Song? (Catchy and True)

    I just heard about it today. YouTube has been falsely reducing the views, so it has broken the million views mark many different times, according to the artist.

    Here's the song:

    It reached the top of iTunes as of mid-March. And the artist was interviewed on this show which I found was interesting:
