Volume, Contrast, Brilliance
Saturday July 4th, 2020 with Steve Kirkland
The tower antenna on the roof done fell, so no FM broadcast tonight, oh well...

With no functioning radio antenna -- it collapsed in a roofing accident Friday -- this program is not airing (did not air) live... relegated to the infinite pit of cyberspace, its resonance should, er, resound... around and around On Demand

At least we can still listen on the interwebs 😂

6:15 PM, July 4th, 2020
Steve Kirkland (host)
Indeed, Wally... it's not ideal, I still love the experience of tuning into FM radio on a stereo... the interweb definitely vastly increases opportunity to tune in wherever, whenever

That's the world premiere of The Exploding Flowers new album which is released on August 12th and will also be available on vinyl on the Burger label in the US - thanks Steve!

Steve Kirkland (host)
More Hmm... screwed up the cut and paste by the (repeated) sounds of things...

Digital sucks at times

It's hard to fix in real time like the being in the studio, but at least the songs repeated are great, loving the surf sounds

Ignore the handful of references to tracks that didn't ac tually make it "on air".... I'll play any missing tracks next week...

Just tuned in, was hoping to catch you in car, but I've just seen the home page and now know why. A little late, but here in the end.

7:26 PM, July 4th, 2020
Steve Kirkland (host)
Hello Dave JC. Good time to tune in... trust me

7:29 PM, July 4th, 2020
Dave JC.
Great!
