webcast info for December 31, 2016

If all goes well, you'll be enjoying a rebroadcast of the program from November 7, 2015.

I forget whatever caused the crisis the destroyed my composure for the opening mic break, but I recall it all turning out alright.

If all continues to go well, we'll have a new show next Saturday.

Happy New Year!

webcast info for December 24, 2016


No live webcast today as the SCATV compound is closed, and I'm off to the homestead regardless.

If all systems go there will be a rebroadcast of the December 19, 2015, last year's Unpopular Christmas episode, which had some technical disasters issues resulting in (at least) the first mic break not getting recorded, and one selection I instantly regretted, so it is highly edited (as promised) with some bonus material at the end.

If that's not enough, there is also the Unpopular Christmas episode from December 20, 2014.

Playlist for the Unpopular Music Webcast for December 17, 2016

A show for folks dressed up like Eskimos, about more or less half Christmas music (and that's if you count as Christmas songs certain songs that are not Christmas songs but are actually about winter, but are only ever to be played before Christmas, which is only around the fifth day of winter.

Playlist for the Unpopular Music Webcast for December 10, 2016

Holiday festivities in the SCATV compound provide some extra ambience, but they don't infiltrate the webcast (well, there's some of Messiaen's Christmas music, but you wouldn't know it without being told.) We've got some jazz and new music, and a couple of poppy thing, and we finally get around to memorializing Pauline Oliveros. (Nothing today for Greg Lake however, but possibly soon, and likely not the least jolly of Christmas songs.)

Playlist for the Unpopular Music Webcast for December 3, 2016

A bleak early December afternoon, and hopefully the music doesn't match too closely. We hear more from albums we've previously recently sampled. I hope that's not too bothersome, but apparently, that's how this program works. It's a mostly jazzy show, with great variety within the"jazz" landscape. The second hour get a little quiet, but hopefully not bleak and/or ponderous.
