Welcome to another Rathole Radio, a very special show this week as it was followed on the live stream by a Professor Kliq gig all the way from Chicago. I even managed to switch all the live listeners over to his Icecast stream without them having to reconnect. I’m amazed it worked without crashing and burning. It was a slightly more eclectic show than normal this time I think, it wasn’t intentional but it just came out that way. There’s some serious genre shifts in the upcoming tracks. I hope you enjoy the show. If you’d like to get involved live please do, just check out the live page for details.

I discussed my new project Salvage Digital Radio, which has really only come about by chance but it’s picking up speed. A proper independent streaming radio station.

Listener Song Vote: 09:17 This week I decided to offer a vote for which track I would play later in the show, and I offered 2 very different genres. Some electro breakbeat jazz and some Simon & Garfunkel-esque folk. You can hear clips of the 2 tunes that people voted on live here.

  • 12:27 — The Rinky Dinks – 5 Foot 2 – License Unknown
  • 14:40 — Major Major – SatelliteCC BY-NC-SA Licensed

RIP Les Paul: I wanted to comment on the death of guitar and recording technology pioneer Les Paul in the last week. I also read some information about him from Wikipedia. Most people know his guitars but most people don’t know the debt all multi-track studio production (a subject close to my heart) owes to Les. An amazing guy.

  • 22:52 — Keep Cool Vibration – Day After DayCC BY-NC-SA Licensed
  • 26:56 — DJ Rush – Drink My DrumsCC BY-NC-SA Licensed

Email Competition: Send me your amusing suggestions for my catchphrase. It be something I say lot like “this one reminds me of ” or something you think I should say as a catchphrase. If it’s funny and I like it then you could win. There’s been a few entries but I thought I’d leave it open another couple of weeks. Thanks to Aiden Nibali for suggesting a Kagnee CD should be the prize. I’ll even sign it for you if you like, ooh what a prize hehe. Send emails to the usual address – show AT ratholeradio.org

Episode 3 is upon us, and this time I’m writing to you from lovely Bonn, Germany. I’ve been here for the last week and I pre-recorded this show before leaving. At the time I should be doing the live show I’ll actually be on a plane heading back towards England from Amsterdam. This jet set life style is fun, but also very tiring. I think I’ll sleep most of next week. Anyway, this show is a little different as we have our first guests, Professor Kliq and his manager. Here’s the vital details:

  • 00:00 – The Soft Drugs – Defending The Paint – License Unknown
  • 08:11 – Kabbage – Breakfast – From the 2008 album “Patchwork Soup” – CC BY-NC-SA
  • 12:56 – Revolution Void – Headphonetic – CC BY-NC-SA
  • 19:40 – Convey – Chalkboard – CC BY-NC-SA

Interview: Professor Kliq & Dan Costalis. I had a great chat with Professor Kliq (AKA Mike) and his manager Dan (good name). We discussed how he makes his music, how Creative Commons affects it, lab coats and much much more. I also got him to pick a couple of his tracks for us to play and discuss.

  • 33:17 – Professor Kliq – Ambition
  • 50:08 – Professor Kliq – Plastic And Flashing Lights
