Your favorite music podcast?

Hey All,
I’m listening to podcasts more than anything else in the car now and want to have more music podcasts. Which ones do you listen to? I like NPR’s All Songs Considered most of all.

What about artwork? Usually we have a poster graphic.

How does the live fight title work? Do we agree on it and tell you? Or just post it here? When?
Let Lunkhead know privately. He will keep it a secret until it is posted to the site.

Re: DIY Acoustic Baffling Article

You also need a drill and glue gun. It is like any DIY project, that ONLY costs $X. It assumes you already have an arsenal of tools at your disposal. If you did enough of these projects though, you would.

Re: Don't client to (The Way It Isn't prefight)

After a number of unfinished attempts, I have submitted a song this week. Recorded in different locations and times, and despite timing and computer issues.

Also, optional challenge met! Only three chords used in the making of this song.

New Music Friday - 7/5/19

Hey All,
Have you noticed the string of the bird and the bee Van Halen covers? Looking forward to their full tribute album. The one they did for Hall and Oates was really good.

The only record I've seen so far that I want to check out today is Jessica Hoop's STONECHILD. You?

Just saw that the Appleseed Cast released a new album, The Fleeting Light of Impermanence, and it is really good. Lots of cool guitar textures and riffs.

Imogen Heap explains her Mi.MU gloves

Watched this NPR Tiny Desk Concert this morning. I really liked how Imogen Heap explains to the audience how her power gloves work. Check it out at the 9:15 mark.

30-45 minutes seem long to me, but I guess I can try to learn more of my songs before then. I'd say 20-30 is typical, but as attendance goes down, set lengths go up!

Is this a birthday tribute to our good friend fluffy's band fluffy porcupine?
"fluffy porcupine" was my band name, not my me-name.
Edited.

Happy birthday!

What I've rounded up so far is in bold below: - a PA -- covered, the Rigby has an 8000 watt Mackie DLM system, 2 tops and 2 subs, 10 channel mixing w/EQ & FX plus 2 sends/monitors. They stated they have a rack mount quad DI they can bring in if needed, but if 2 direct ins are all we need, the mixer...

I will definitely be there.

Unfortunately, it will be a very quick trip, arriving Friday and leaving Sunday.

Re: Is this a good deal on a good stage piano?

It gets good reviews on Sweetwater: https://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail ... gx/reviews

My concern would be that this unit is 10-15 years old. It may make more sense to get something more current. Does your friend need 88 keys?

nobody remembers GarageBand.
Garageband was great because if you did a certain number of reviews you got a gift card to buy a CD of your choosing from some Canadian record store I can remember. That was totally worthwhile.
