Cyberinteractivity beckons you... chime in!

6:02 PM, July 11th, 2020
Steffi from Lowertown.
I was going to ask about the FM signal, but then I noticed the title of last week's show. I take it that it's an on-going issue. Glad to still be able to listen online.

6:10 PM, July 11th, 2020
Steve Kirkland (host)
Hi Steffi... yes, theissue is ongoing... I'm hoping we'll be back on FM soon, eager to broadcasting beyond the Net... current events have forced CKCU broadcasts increasingly into the digital maelstrom... without old-school "on air" listeners listening in on radios, hi-fis (love dropping that in there) or car steros miss out...

6:15 PM, July 11th, 2020
Wally
I tried to tune in on the radio in the car as we went to pick up some ice cream but nothing but dead air, still glad to be able to listen on my phone.

6:22 PM, July 11th, 2020
Steve Kirkland (host)
Wally! Listen as/with what you need, happy to have you and anyone else listening tuned in.

6:27 PM, July 11th, 2020
Steve Kirkland (host)
Wally, ice cream IS for this weather... part of my family agenda of late, weekly runs out to Carp

6:38 PM, July 11th, 2020
Wally
Where in Carp is the best ice cream? We just went to the Merry Dairy, they make great coconut ice cream when it's available

7:03 PM, July 11th, 2020

Across from the west entrance to the Carp Fairgrounds

Hearing the tunes, but can't get them as loud on my bluetooth speaker.

7:09 PM, July 11th, 2020
Steve Kirkland (host)
Hi Jeb. I'm maxed out on my headphones and similarly insufficiently served by the volume

7:12 PM, July 11th, 2020
Steve Kirkland (host)
Shout out to Maestro Morricone!

7:13 PM, July 11th, 2020
Wally
Thanks for yhe ice cream tip, always on the lookout for a good ice cream place.

Jeb
Not a shot at the audio on your show, but lamenting my own crappy bluetooth speakers vs my stereo.

7:26 PM, July 11th, 2020
Steve Kirkland (host)
Jeb, I was speaking of my "in-house" technology

7:28 PM, July 11th, 2020
Steffi in Lowertown
@Jeb ... you should re-pair your bluetooth speaker. That should fix your volume issue.

7:28 PM, July 11th, 2020
Jeb
@the host: both of us. @steffi, not broken, just not even close to the sound of my Celestions.

7:33 PM, July 11th, 2020
Wally
@Jeb hello, hope you are doing well

7:35 PM, July 11th, 2020
Jeb
Hi Wally! Doing alright thanks, as I hope you are too.

7:46 PM, July 11th, 2020
Wally
Thanks Jeb, we are all doing well. I will have to get you copies of our new releases if you are interested.

No background music... hmmm... glitch city

Dave JC
Just got back...trying to pick up a portable AC, now that I'm home full-time, but all out everywhere. Anyway, got a wee bit in the car through the online app. Really only a wee bit. I'll have to listen back.

7:58 PM, July 11th, 2020
Dave JC.
PS: from my 12fl vantage point, looking west, I see a huge storm approaching.

7:59 PM, July 11th, 2020
Steve Kirkland (host)
I didn't announce it, but the music to close out is a mash of the opening two tracks on the new album from Norwegian guitarist Hedwig Mollestad.

8:00 PM, July 11th, 2020
Steve Kirkland (host)
Hi Dave

8:00 PM, July 11th, 2020
Steve Kirkland (host)
... the two tracks on the Hedwig Mollestad are not the first two

8:03 PM, July 11th, 2020
Wally
