Quick reminder for today’s Great River Radio!
Yes, we’ll be back in the studio this afternoon – there have several developments with the show in the last week and since we are busy today, this will be a short reminder. A couple announcements first:
• We will be streaming live and assume that it is now working properly after some Quick Time issues in the last two weeks.
• We now have about 100 previous GRR shows loaded into the University of St. Thomas’ iTunesU folder. This collection is only available via www.stthomas.edu/itunesu – go there and you will be directed to a page with KUST Radio listed as an option. Select that, and then select Great River Radio. You will see tabs for folders for each available season. (We did not save the first season of GRR.) Click “Get” and the show will be loaded into your iTunesU folder in iTunes.
• Each week from now on, our show will now be uploaded into iTunesU within about an hour of our finish.
• NOTE: we are still experimenting with settings for the capture of the show. Last week (#601) definitely had some problems with audio quality – our technical support team is working with us to eliminate those.
In any case, we do believe we are making progress and that we’ll have a great system once we iron out the kinks. No, we’re not playing any Kinks today, though now that I think of it, that might have been a good idea. You will hear a fine playlist of mostly new music from The Head And The Heart, The Civil Wars, Dessa, Laura Marling, Zee Avi, Rachael Yamagata, Megafaun and Ryan Adams. For those of you who like the occasional dip into other musical genres and eras, we’ve got Storyhill, Pentangle, Chet Baker and Charlie Haden. Yes, that’s a mixed bag, but I think you’ll like it. This is how we do it on Great River Radio.
