This is important if you actually listen to this show: Radio Rumpus Room is being preempted this week, Jan. 9, for somebody’s live broadcast, BUTONLYTHEFIRSTHALFHOUR’S WORTH. We are going to utilized the last half of this abbreviated timeslot to do a 30 minute tribute to one of the greatest songs of all time: Stan Jones’ Ghost Riders In The Sky. Lotsa wildly different versions of this one; we guarantee this’ll hold your interest!
Update on our still-AWOL 128 kbps MP3 archives: We remain one of a handful of KFAI shows that are not being archived in this higher-quality format. The requsted fix requires the station engineer (currently on a long holiday hiatus) and we’ve been told we’re on the list. Say your prayers — it couldn’t hurt!
This was a special Ghost Riders In The Sky edition of Radio Rumpus Room!
Note: The first half houir of this show was preempted by the end of a live broadcast from the Walker Art Center. The truncated (one-hour long) RRR starts 30 minutes into the archive. The all-Ghost Riders segment starts a half-hour into our show, or 60 minutes into the archive.
All the usual stuff this week, plus a tribute to the recently departed Patrick McGoohan, of fab Sixties TV shows Secret Agent and The Prisoner.
P.S. The good news: It appears KFAI’s 128 kbps MP3-archiving software has finally caught up with Radio Rumpus Room. The bad news: Now every programming flaw will be available to you archive-lovers in slightly increased fidelity.
