Apologies for the late posting

March 3rd, 2015

Apologies – I appear to have been hit by the dreaded WordPress ‘Missed Schedule’ bug where scheduled posts fail to publish at the specified time.

Unfortunately, I was so busy today I forgot to check on whether TFL had published at 5.30am this morning and only remembered tonight. And when I did, Show 287 was MIA…. I’ve rectified that now by manually publishing it so it’s now available to the world!

I’m trying a temporary solution via CRON job on my web hosting for now – and if this post gets published I’ll know that it has worked and will be ready for the next TFL show’s publication date.

Until then – cheerio!

Show 287 – It’s That 80s Show!

March 3rd, 2015

Listen here or use the player on the right, though I’d love you to subscribe !

Flu defeated, it’s time for a trip back to the 80s with some eighties-influenced synth-pop from the current day. Hard to conceive that the 80s were 30 years ago, and even stranger to think back to what you were doing back then! So, put on those rose-tinted specs and come with me back to those carefree days of my teens…

Filter Distortion – Black and White

Smoking Ghosts – Dance The Disillusionment Away

I, Us & We – Lanterns

Filter Distortion – Frequency Modulation

The soundbed was ‘Ephemeral Living’ by Zero Project
Three From Leith theme-tune by Alex Aitken

Show 286 – He’s Alive!

January 27th, 2015

Listen here or use the player on the right, though I’d love you to subscribe !

New year? Check. New kit for recording on? Check. New tunes? Check. Same old blethering? Hell, yeah! It’s true – I’m finally back with a
laptop (thanks, Glen!) and a new external soundcard to create the new TFL recording studio. As I found during the recording though, I need to rearrange my studio workspace to avoid having to lean in to reach the mic & knackering my back… I also have to apologise to The Persian Leaps, as my rustiness meant that during the recording I failed to tell you what their songs were called. All that aside, it’s bloody good to be back!

Peur – Hollow Skies

Seawitches – Stars

The Persian Leaps – Fire Starter / Permission

The soundbed was ‘In The Sky (Original Mix)’ by Karan & Shivil
Three From Leith theme-tune by Alex Aitken

At long last – I have working equipment and will return next week!

January 18th, 2015

I know – I’ve been absent again for a VERY long time. There have been a number of reasons for this, but the main one has been that the podcasting PC has not been working and I’ve not been able to record.

However, the acquisition of a used laptop from an ex-work colleague in the last week, followed by the purchase of an external soundcard, means that I am now finally up and running again and I’ll be recording this week for release next Tuesday (27th January).

If there are any subscribers still there, thanks for hanging on and I’ll be in your ears again shortly!

Away too long

July 25th, 2014

I’m aware that there’s been a TFL drought these past two months. The energy to produce a show has been lacking, and now I’m off on holiday for two weeks. Hopefully the break away will refresh the batteries & rekindle my desire to record.  In the meantime, thanks for bearing with me. Enjoy your summer!

Show 284 – Will It Get There?

May 20th, 2014

Listen here or use the player on the right, though I’d love you to subscribe !

Jings! Where did the time go? A combination of time & frustration with the PC thwarting a couple of attempts to record (three hours wasted when the wifi card software corrupted, anyone?) has kept me away longer than planned. I’ve also noticed that the comments validation plugin was broken, as was the ‘Donate’ button, so they’ve now been fixed too. So, let’s get on and fix the bumper selection of music right now

Vukovi – So Long Gone

Talia – Thelma & Louise

Kinetics – The Ocean

The Telenovellas – Intergalactic Debauchery At The Red Light District Of The Moon / Queen Of The Moths

Foggy Nocean – George Orwell Was Right

GUMS! And Callum Baird – Something Rotten / Haunted House

The soundbed was ‘Lights’ by Modeplex

Coming soon – Show 284!

May 19th, 2014

I’m fated to never get a podcast out when I want to. Tonight I’ve spend almost three hours trying to tag the podcast file in iTunes and upload it to the server. It’s there now, but I don’t have the time left tonight to write up the shownotes & publish it. That will hopefully come tomorrow night, but if you can’t wait that long, you can access the file directly to listen to at: http://www.grantmason.co.uk/Podcasting/Shows/tfl284.mp3

Cheers!
