Anyone here ever thought about an online streaming WATMM Radio?


Recommended Posts

If the technical side is a problem, there are always sites like Mixlr which are set-up for realtime broadcasts. But yeah, doing proper 'shows' is definitely preferable - I'm sure there are enough people around here who're willing put together mixes, host shows and such to make it worthwhile. I'd love to contribute.

 

Hi yeah i mentioned about mixlr earlier as an option, the only issue with that one is its only from one account alhough we could sharee out the log in but its definatly a option.

 

in what way would/could you like to contribute?

thumbs down for a dead random playlist of the EKT back catalogue. thumbs up for time specific shows, dj's, talking.

 

as long as there's quality control along the way, we're golden

 

biggest hurdle is how to pronounce watmm?

WAH-TUMM

I would be happy to provide content. I like making mixes. And obviously I'm happy to contribute to any behind the scenes malarky.

WATMM is blatantly 'Wait-muh-muh' eh guys

imo the phrase 'time specific' is key and is what i was thinking. and again maybe it's too ambitious for doing right at the beginning, but even if the shows are pre-recorded/edited, having a specific broadcast time, i think would make them seem more special, compared to it being a thing you can play whenever. you'd actually have to tune in. due to watmmrs being all around the world, and the fact that doing an actual 'show' of some kind takes more effort, it might make sense to have it repeat a few times so everyone has a chance to hear it. maybe have an archive of past shows so people who missed could catch up at any time, but having the initial broadcast be time specific seems important to me. just my imo

All good ideas so far. I'm up for contributing shows since I want to get my DJ skills going.. and also maybe some recordings/broadcasts of listening nights with commentary lol

No need for a mixer for this recipe! Clean-up is easy too, you can mix everything in one bowl.


The best bananas to use for banana bread are those that are over-ripe. The yellow peels should be at least half browned, and the bananas inside squishy and browning.






INGREDIENTS
  • 3 very ripe bananas, peeled
  • 1/3 cup melted butter
  • 3/4 cup sugar (1/4 cup more if you like it very sweet, 1/4 cup less if you like it less sweet)
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour



METHOD

Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C), and butter a 4x8-inch loaf pan.


In a large mixing bowl, mash with a fork. Use a wooden spoon to stir the melted butter into the mashed bananas.


Mix in the baking soda and salt. Stir in the sugar, beaten egg, and vanilla extract. Mix in the flour.


Pour the batter into your prepared loaf pan. Bake for 1 hour to 1 hour 10 minutes at 350°F (175°C), or until a tester inserted into the center comes out clean.


Remove from oven and cool completely on a rack. Remove from the pan. Slice and serve. (A bread knife helps to make slices that aren't crumbly.)

So what is left to do here? Set up a shout cast icecast or other freecast program and organise some schedules for shows

 

I'm keen to jump on board as a DJ / host

 

I had a go at setting up a cast but I don't have the knowledge.
