Misadventures in audio

Burned a couple of mix CDs this week, and I'm already looking at re-doing one of them - the Peter Gabriel CD appears to have some bad tracks on it, both from the Security album. Fortunately the tunes are both on other anthology CDs that I own, so it shouldn't be a problem to re-rip the songs and burn a replacement. The other CD is the Ultravox mix, which I did this morning before work after listening to the recently-received Ha! Ha! Ha! CD and ripping "Frozen Ones" and "Fear In The Western World". Seems to have turned out okay so far.

Also finally got around to getting my library card out of hock. I dropped by the Southdale branch last night with the long-lost copy of 1633 and wrote them a check for the late fees. Picked up Larry Niven's Ringworld's Children, his The Magic Goes Away collection, and the John Ringo/Linda Evans Bolo novel The Road to Damascus. I generally like Ringo's SF work but don't know Evans; on the other hand, most of the stories written in the shared universe of the Bolo Combat Units since Keith Laumer's death have been good ones, so it should be decent brain candy at the very least.

hi there. If you're burning mix CDs of Peter Gabriel and Ultravox, there's a chance you might enjoy listening to radio hidebound, an Internet radio station which fancies itself as something of a time capsule of what college radio in the 80's sounded like.

We'd love you to drop by sometime.

If your sound is anything like WGTB in the late 70s or the WHFS in the 80s and 90s I may just have to check you out. Thanks for the tip.

actually, we've had several people say things like "you sound better than 'HFS did when it was still a good station". Having never heard HFS when it was still a good station (I moved to DC in the early 90's), I don't whether this is a valid statement or not.

We like to think so.

Guess we'll see. Thanks again for the tip.
