AnalogPlanet Radio's WFDU HD2 "Bang Your Head Against A Wall" All-Percussion Radio Show
Funny thing: when I popped the recorded CD of last week's show into my computer, iTunes tagged it as " Behaving Like a Christian". This week's show was tagged "Calvary Christian Center". Have I somehow tapped into the big J?
Note: Be assured no test tones were played during this show but the tracks will definitely let you check out your stereo!
These shows are recorded at CD resolution directly off the station's board. If you are wondering about how Soundcloud degrades sonics, compare the 96/24 file of "Ionization", which you can stream here with the version here, which is the second song in the set. I'm sorry to write that it's a pretty big difference, but it's the best we can do for now.
I think this show came out really well. Putting one of these together takes a great deal of time and effort but it's well worth it from my point of view: I get to hear a lot of interesting music hidden on the shelves, I get to evaluate the system's performance and, most interestingly, the on line research done to provide background for the selections is really interesting and enriching. So please enjoy this all-percussion AnalogPlanet Radio show!
