OK so this one is very different and a hell of a challenge. I seriously considered not releasing it but it goes against what I have tried to do from the beginning which is to showcase great music and to present it warts and all. The spirit of the show is such that I am looking for reality, not perfection. If you listen regularly then you will probably be fine with that. Here’s what happened. You should know that due to Covid Mix FM shut down the Rockfest and as a result, the last 4 episodes of TSORR Radio Show were recorded live from behind my bar. Having been presented with a wonderful opportunity to form an internet-based Rock Radio station I did this as a test show to figure out the new technology. This is what happened:
The show kicked off with Joe Walsh and not the Dr Who theme and that is because just getting through the gateway onto the airwaves was difficult. We got to a messy intro after Life’s Been Good. The show was recorded between 16h00 and 18h00 from my office in Chloorkop and being in a drive time slot I couldn’t resist some driving music in the form of Radar Love and Freewheel Burning courtesy of Golden Earring and Judas Priest respectively, The mic is a real challenge and it there is no comparison to the Mix FM mic quality. Live with that please and I will improve it as the weeks go on. The show is a bit short because the beginning was late and there were a lot of dropouts due to WiFi issues. In the end, I had to broadcast the whole fucking thing using my phone as a hotspot. We got in some Rammstein and a bit of Megadeth specially dedicated to the government with This Day We Fight. The highlight for me was Rock Show by Halestorm. The show also wasn’t as heavy as normal and had a fairly soft landing with The Killers and We Are Augustines but we still got in some W.A.S.P and some Maiden, so do not despair. Great things are happening and announcements are imminent.
