Happy birthday to us. Yes, TigerTails Radio hit 11 years old on this episode of TigerTails Radio. Not being an important birthday, the cast crack right on with the first task of breaking everything again. Xavier’s house move and brief loss of Internet meant he missed the first 15 mins of the show, but when the trio were reunited, it all kicked off proper. We give you a lot of the week, a discussion about copyright (which somehow did not turn into an argument!), and to cap it off, four wonderful tunes to wrap your earholes around. It was a fun show, even if there was no cake. Happy birthday TigerTails Radio, here’s to the remaining 51 shows this season!
The second testing show, and everything kinda worked! A full studio with no remote studios required, this meant that we were able to broadcast a full show with musical breaks and a whole new segment. The “Gaming News” section has been dramatically cut down to headlines and a main story, Done and Dusted is limited to a single piece, and a new segment which will happen every now and again – an as-of-yet unnamed agony uncle segment that’s sure to trigger someone on Tumblr.
The first testing show of Season 9 leads to a 2 hour show of 3 people trying to figure out a problem. The problem being how to broadcast a show with 2 of the 3 hosts in remote studios. This was solved in the end with the addition of new hardware being included into the mix, but this only happens in the last half-hour of the show. Watch the YouTube feed to experience odd echoes in the feed and to watch TK try to managed all of the buttons and the YouTube feed, alone! Check the TubeCast below. By the end of the show, things were up and running, and the cast talk about flags, preservation, and cables. High excitement.
Added benefits of the YouTube feed include 1080p 50fps video! Check us out!
Season 9 testing begins today at 8pm UK time (BST currently). As said in previous posts, this is not a normal show and viewers of the YouTube feed will have to be kind to us as the stream might not be as stable as we’d like. If all goes well though, there will be a 1080p stream running at 50fps (YouTube allowing). There will be some testing to get the audio synced (or indeed, working) and we’re not going to promise we’re not as rusty as all Hell. Should be fun. Keep up with the show in IRC (#tigertailsradio on the anthrochat.net server) to know what’s going on if you’re only watching via the YouTube feed. TK will post what he’s doing in there.
If you fancy sending music to us, there is now a Submit a Song section on the main menu. This gives you all you need to know about getting music to us, and what we require in order to play it (without attracting lawsuits). Give it a read, and get sending those songs.
Finally, if you want to be kept updated whenever we update the site, our RSS feed is up and working (for a change) so feel free to add the RSS feed to your favourite RSS readers to be kept up to date with all the latest information on this site. Also don’t forget our Facebook and Twitter feeds (links on the right) for other info and posts throughout the week. There might even be an update made for tonight’s show… Though I wouldn’t put money on it.
Season 9 Pre-Testing Show 00 will start on July 6th at 8pm. This will not be a normal format show, but will be a live-stream of us trying to get everything working, making the equipment play ball, and trying to figure out volume levels. The YouTube feed may go up and down a bit, though the live radio/podcast feed should be relatively unaffected. Please join us in IRC to let us know how well things are working.
As we also plan on bringing music back with this season, feel free to suggest artists you’d like to hear who have released their tunes under the Creative Commons license. You can reply with links below, poke us on Twitter @tigertailsradio, Facebook, or email them in at firstname.lastname@example.org – whichever is easiest for you. If emailing your songs in, please also include a link to the page you got the song from so we can correctly credit in the show notes.
Not forgetting July 20th is our 11th anniversary show! There may, or may not, be a little bit of drinking going on. Maybe… The drunk show for this season may come early this time. Something to look forward to.
