Holy retro, Batman! This Wednesday (30th October 2013) celebrates NINE years of the BBB. Actually, the first show was on November 3, 2004, but this is the nearest Wednesday to it, so we’re going with that.
It will probably be just a normal show, but with a little reminiscing of course, and maybe a slightly longer show than normal.
Remember also that the clocks fall back one hour this Sunday (October 27) in Europe (and some other areas). Remember if you’re outside Europe to cater for time differences – America, for instance, falls back the weekend after. Regardless of time zones, SLAY Radio shows always start using the local time zone – so it will be 20:00 CET (19:00 UTC) on Wednesday.
It’s been a while since Leoni and I have done a show… too long in fact; so we’re going to remedy the situation by broadcasting a Saturday Silliness this coming Saturday, 2013-09-28!
It’s the usual drill – play your requests and then Leoni and I talk about just about anything in between, including your IRC chat comments along the way.
See you for some SS soon!
News from my Real Life… it seems that the Örebro assignment is being cut short, which means the BBB can start getting back to some sort of reality very soon!
It will surely be nice to get the BBB back on Wednesdays where they belong, instead of hopping around madly!
More info when it happens, an ETA is about two weeks from now.
Sorry folks, I’ve had to go ahead and cancel tonight’s show at short notice. Real Life and all that.
Sorry for the short notice, but remember there’s other shows on SLAY Radio coming up!
That’s what the Sentry Turrets utter in the Portal Universe, and it’s a good question to ask… the answer is yes, of course – hopefully you’ve noticed that I’ve been broadcasting on Saturday instead of Wednesday – but I also realise I haven’t mentioned anything here on the blog recently; so I thought I’d remedy that right now.
My assignment in Örebro is still ongoing; normally I’m here Monday to Wednesday which means I can come home of a Wednesday evening and broadcast my show then. However, for this and the next week I am working all five days of the week so I’ll be broadcasting on Saturday. Also, sometimes I will be too tired to actually do a show on Wednesday (maybe it’s just been a BUSY three days) so I’ll switch over to Saturday instead.
The assignment (as far as I know right now) finishes at the end of the year, so this will be going on for another four months. Then (unless something changes) I’ll be back on a Wednesday!
You’ll have also noticed that SLAY Radio is becoming very busy with live shows now. We’ve had additional broadcasters come along as well as “old” broadcasters coming back. Gurt (or GurtyGurt McGurtison as I call him) has started a new show which will be broadcast on Mondays. KraxUltima is doing his shows on a Thursday. We’ve also got Cactus coming along sometimes to do a show. And Gazoo is back, under his alter-ego TouchTheDJ, which reflects a software system he’s working on, using a tablet to broadcast his shows. Then you’ve got some bloke called Boz who’s always around, and DJ Burning Star is managing to broadcast whenever she can.
So, it’s all go at SLAY Radio at the moment with live shows galore!
