What are you expecting from it? I wanna hear your VIEWS DAMMIT.
unsigned and signed bands. Also, clear labelling of tracks being played too would be nice.
of all shapes and sizes - and no pregnant pauses of course
we have no comedy sidekicks please?
that what Crablin is already... ?
Your desperate attempts on this board to continually try and make me look stupid always just result in everyone ignoring your posts.
paranoid. I was merely joking, hence the smiley face ^^ can you see it.
I suggest that your own bad temper is clouding your judgment and causing this kneejerk reaction.
And people don't ignore my posts, i'm not sure where you get that from. Maybe you're not sleeping properly. Please, please pay attention.
But they are just so numerious...
not fucking cunts like you brainlove. yeah, go on ignore my PM you fucking coward. I was being honest in that PM and you ignored it. That makes you a pathetic little twat!
that say 'ho is killer a man'
and punnage of the word 'DiS'.
to make the MP3's at least 192kbps? It only increases the file size slightly over 128kbps, but the sound quality is much better.
Thats the techy question out the way.
so you can rip the songs you like from the file and then start your own download store and take over the music industry?
it'll be at 160 actually...
yeah, like i'm gonna steal tracks that have you talking over the start and end.
I have soulseek :-P
that's all i want.
but if that's not on: good music from today's top bands, retrospective shows on eras and genre, guest shows from bands playing their favourite music and mike diver presenting the news in a bad mood.
You could get Kirsty or even Mart on the show and find out what life is like after DiS.
just someone reading the best thread of the week doing impersonations of each contributor to the thread, ok maybe not.
just lots of new music basically, and lots of roflcopters and LoLing and maybe a guest spot from Bono
no in-jokes - I assume it's trying to cadge a larger audience than the sum total of this forum?
light banter and wit
VARIETY - no overplaying songs even if you love them to death. Good mix of genres where possible
I'd expect the DJ to be engaging?
all these things have already been addressed.
DO NOT WORRY, WE WON'T FUCK IT UP.
new music, old (relevant) music. Slightly popular music and totally unknown music.
And I want to hear you and Mike Diver making surreal jokes and saying LOL instead of laughing. And I want there to be recorded samples of Raz turning up to be sarcastic.
Kinda like the boards in audio
i won't be able to listen to it !
Lots of different bands i suppose...
to have live fights.
one 40mb download every two weeks - fine!
definitely not fine...
there be interviews with people where you only respond with some famous DiS catchphrases?
that you mention in the reviews, in a topical manner. Anything though really, I'm very excited. Er... and Bobby Grindrod doing old-fashioned stand-up.
Bobby Grindrod's One Liner Of The Day.
if not cake, biscuits will do.
and some irrational hatred of bands for no apparent reason other than it'll be controversial.
A Raz segment. He is by far the funniest guy on DiS.
mike diver is the funniest. when he is in a bad mood and gets an x factor story of course.
but he tries too hard.
For RAZ it just comes natural!
I don't try at all.
If I did I'd be dangerous/would have a proper job/beautiful women would throw themselves at me/I'd be able to grow a pirate beard.
is the biggest pile of rubbish I've read on here EVER. Raz is admittedly wired wrong and therefore amusing but Diver doesn't try to be that funny - he's just genuinely amusing.
I was joking. Of course Mike doesn't TRY to be funny. I TRY to be funny and fail (most of the time anyway).
I was merely exchanging banter in championing RAZ for a DJ spot.
Is that what you want, is it?
i've actually wet myself. !
...a bit much.
YOU CRACK ME UP MAN, THAT WAS LIEK SOOO FUNNY.
Have you considered stand-up?
See what I did there ^?
It has a funny, it owns it, and you can see it.
Simple grammar twists = hours of japes.
Raz tries too hard. Mike Diver is MUCH funnier.
you'll have to make do with my dull tones.
Is it going to be drownedinguitar bands or like, a mega-wide range of stuff, and I don't just mean saul williams or something. Can I DJ techno?
I'll still listen. promise.
I'd second that.
I want a homesick show where every tune must contain at least 2 synths.
Can i be your comedy sidekick, or at least your sidekick?
funny - but not in a way like the presenter's trying to launch their career as a comedian. Just nice and informal and chatty. You should have different presenters on different shows to get a real mix.
Don't have a regular presenter, keep it away from making the presenter the focus of the show. make it about the music, maaan.
A good of mix of signed and unsigned - like perhaps you could guarantee that say 25% of each show will be unsigned bands. so you get genuinely new music.
And definitely make sure you say what every single track is and where you can get hold of it. If not on the show itself then definitely on the site.
definitely make sure you say what EVERYTHING is. The other day Phill Jupitus played a record, then after it, said 'of course, you all know what that is' and I didn't and felt lame/annoyed.
He could DiScuss Politics And Stuff.
cheers for the nomination monpot but it might be incitement to some
they should play the Fog Band.
a running soap opera a la the archers
chris moyles burnt in effigy
a 'alcoholic drink of the week' feature
HAS to be resident Agony Uncle!!
we need the soap opera.
Could Marilyninthesky run a sex column?
expecting the Earth to move!
i'm thinking The Archers mixed with Peep Show. actually that's terrifying.
seems terrifying enough without any aids.
and no Arcade Fire would get me to listen
and a singles review show similar to Round Table but not so bloody polite and not featuring James Endecott every frickin week!
and no 'sidekicks' unless they are actually funny
so that's 4.50, whoever you are, smartboy
Except he can't choose his own playlist. So basically a round-table, with only Prole on it. I'd love that.
and Arcade Fire as possible would get ME to listen
you just listen to 'funeral' all the way through and talk to yourself?
i think they suck and will be banning anything people are likely to have heard loads and had rammed down their sheepy throats elsewhere.
I want to say nothing in order to convey the facelessness of techno.
when people did dance music shows on my uni radio and didn't speak, so no-one knew what the records were. It's a radio station! You're not in a club! Idiots.
well, thats why I'll talk!
That way we get the best of both worlds.
its like that artist who has never seen any of his paintings because they were made according to written instructions issued to his students.
well, not really, but its close enough
The (drowned in) Sound of Sweden
loose in the studio.
1) You have to play 'Smells Like Mart Spirit'.
2) You have to play at least one pedestrian snooze rock tune per cast.
3) Don't just play NEW music like Smeagol LMAO. Play some 'indie classics'.
4) Don't just play what's cool at the time.
5) Have a 'The Worst Song of the Week' section. Each song played in this area will be devoted to marcofella.
If we can come to some agreement here, you've got yourself a deal.
but fookin' Roses and Mondays classics
I like the worst song idea.
Get Simon Bates in for Our Tune.
when I posted 'our tone' up there ^. Curse my stupid fingers.
I thought you meant the parody Mark and Lard used to do, which WAS called 'Our Tone'. I'm disappointed.
I read it as Bring back Tony Blackburn in a "he now belongs to the people as a post ironic icon" kind of way
'step on' it crabbers!
'She Bangs the Drums'
Yes I'd love to be subjected to bad records for an hours show and now be allowed to sound off
Classic Bobby George - will that be about Factory Record's Flawed Boss, with commentary from Shaun Ryder?
should we really be sharing these with DiS?
Lets start our own radio station. I want Grinders to do the intro and JDTraynor to do the late night love section.
you alreay have Virgin, which seems to provide most of what you want already.
Don't you get bored of coming round all the threads with your negative one-liners like 'This thread is boring. Your mum is boring. DiS is boring.'?
What went wrong Furny? You used to be such a good lad.
I devote my time and effort to other stuff. You should try it.
PS myspace doesn't count.
Tee Hee.Cracked me up for some reason.
and only french bands...
all day with FR David, Plastic Bertrand and the fooking Mondays at night for smooooth classics
he's one of them french folk.
by Serge for us everyday??
You can have your sausage fingers back now Bob
I don't want to listen to your hide.
has got the general jist of this thread silly - there'll be room for everything am sure and a serving of fanboy music to satisfy you!
seriously do you think anyone with tear ducts and a fragile heart would want to have another Virgin Radio - do you think we want some sort to Warehouse radio or something?
I think ideally DiS Radio would be something that reflected music in all aspects and not a reaction to or assimilation of modern times.
No one north of Watford junction says 'fooking'. The media invented it.
and EVERYONE saying it. You couldn't move for people saying 'where's me fooking mortar board?'
Cambridge isn't in the north. My point was only southerners say that because they thought the gallaghers did. In actual fact it sounds more like fuhkin.
I wouldn't be so smug if I was a southern jessie who couldn't pronounce funny without comedy results so there.
but I don't know what impudent means.
So i'm going to pretend it means 'highly amusing'.
yes every sensible child knows that, 'appen
DiS only be available around London?
Any attempt to access it outside of London will be confronted with the message:
"Move to London know you dirty mongrel! that's where all the best music is anyway, and you smell!"
Wink wink smiley ;-)
Nah honestly it would be nice if you could have a roundtable discussion about the best demo's out there. Some live tracks would be nice as well if you could do them.
How about guest mixes as well sometimes?
live sessions, so we can properly hear if any of these scenester bands are in any way decent without maybe having to waste hard earned money.
with loads of jingles and adverts and erm fooking classics Im labouring the point of sarcasm now, so Im going home to hug my copy vinyl copy of Tiger Milk and ask my mum for Revenge of the Sith on DVD even though I'm 82 or something
it so that when on of us hears a new record on your station and we think it is a bit plagueristic, that we can tell you to play what we think it reminds us of, you will do that and the public will decide, also when some trusted Diser phones up to say well you might like that but if you did you really should listen to 'such and such' then you would play such and such.
please also let us know who and how and where to get the track......after it is played, cos my big bugbear is tuning into a station hearing something obscure, you want it, but dont know how to get it.
I think marilynintheskyshouldgetaslottoososhecanintimidatebobbyaurally
are only broadcasting in London, could you not work out some deal with some other local stations to play say highlight tracks of the week for a couple of hours......e.g. Kerang FM broadcasts just round Birmingham (I think) It certainly sounds like they are looking filler for some of the time, perhaps they would agree if you reciprocated, can a similar thing be done round the country? or maybe by tailoring it to have regional flavours you could try to negotiate with local bbc or something
am I living in fairyland?
I think. So therefore - international!
it'll be one of these swanky new download-it-yourself 'podcasts' that everyone's talking about.
it's on the sodding internet.
I was enjoying creakyknees suggestions.
in a marxist utopia where everyone is as nice as a zoodlepuff.
Actually I just read a bit about it being only available around london somewhere in the thread....I obviously did not read it properly, I have gone a bit mad, it is bobby and marilyns fault
the culprit it was tom_from_sparks
that most people read the messageboard rather than the actual articles.
If Traynor disapporoves of almost every aspect of the DiS forum, why he continues to frequent it on such a regular basis. When it was pretty dreadful and doing my head in, I left. These days it seems fine again.
to make it dreadful again then...
Or maybe not !
"DO NOT WORRY, WE WON'T FUCK IT UP."
Now we just need Grindrod to write us a jingle.
Hannah82 says I have to be agony uncle. Will the madness ever end?
doesn't that wrightylew fellow normally post something after wirghtylew?
Can I be Radio Dis's religeous advisor?
He'll abandon the flock when the novelty wears off!
about marco that people object to so much? I cannot even disagree with them cos I don't know what they don't like about him.
I am a poor fool today, a bad and smutty fool
Is the answer. Beat those unholy thoughts out, Mr Knees! Beat them!
brainlove. However, i will have the last laugh.
I'm just sick of him taking unprovoked digs at me.
you'll never be able to fit this into 24 hours a year.
You could have traffic reports, weather, poetry corner, ROFL of the fortnight, and maybe an international link-up with OceanRain a la Lamacq/WCR, topical phone-ins, or maybe something that's completely redundant on the radio like karaoke or origami demonstrations for shits and giggles or something. Or not.
ps. can i play some records on there pretty pleeeeeeeeeeeeease? i promise i'll only play Kylie once...
once = twice = thrice
(so we can cut the podcast mp3 into simple mp3s of the tunes we like OH YES)
*spits on floor*
(c) all commercial radio stations in the uk
also: surely it isnt "commercial radio"?
I think it's a great idea and I want to hear every suggestion put forward so far, particularly involving Simon Bates.
Are these going to be podcasts? How long will they be? How often?
you lazy fucker ;-P
is too hard !
Where's the fun in that?
to hear Mike Diver on the phone to Arnie
