Re: Show 59 - For The Birds!

rick- some kind of miss-communication. It's now 9:33 Sunday night and no show and no r&r. T and I made bird jokes for a while but no Rickter Scale was a disappointment.---------

I just came back from the Hot Tuna concert (was a top 10 show, no exaggeration) and the all the hard work I put in to the show goes for naught. There was NO reason that show should not have loaded. Every time I'm absent this happens.

I am sick and tired of having to make sure the show runs on time. Everything was done correctly. I can't be around for every show.

On the replay I will be here, and I will watch to see if it loads. If it does, that means something or someone monkeyed with the scheduling. If it doesn't load, maybe the scheduler is off. Either way it's a royal pain in the ass.

I'm seriously thinking about not doing the show anymore. It's too labor intensive to have this happen.

Rickster, sorry you feel this way because we Moonies LOVE your show and really appreciate the amount of time and effort you put into making it happen for us every week.

Don't fly off the handle, just remain perched up there in Baltimore and try and cage that anger that's humming in your head. I've heard a lot of your shows (not as many as I would have liked) and not one has been a Turkey. I'd like to do a show myself but I'm too chicken so I've ducked out every time it was suggested.

What I'm saying is think about what you're saying. A lot of people will be very sad to see you stop. OK?

PS. Sorry about the Bird punnery. It was meant to make you smile.

I would think the labor intensive part is putting the show together, not putting it into the queue to play.

I was still around at about 21:00. Had I known, I would have queued up the show.

Re: Show 59 - For The Birds!

Since it's too late to erase my post, I'll just kill two birds with one stone (sorry Keith)....

Yes I was venting...thank you Keith for the words, I will keep trying.

Vax the show's at 20:00, has been for a few months. You shouldn't have to "fix" it. If it doesn't run it doesn't run. It actually is labor intensive to pull the songs together from the Moon and schedule it. I double-check everything. The fun part is assembling the show, and it seems to be quick.

To sharc and term, who were in the box, if the show doesn't run after the last tune ends at the top of the hour (8pm est), and I'm not there, it's not running. Except for xmas, I should have a show each week.

Thanks again, I'd like to just forget about it now.

Re: Show 59 - For The Birds!

I had to manually load the show today. Looks like a corruption on the file end of it. I guess that's the risk with so many individual songs pulled together.

Thumbs up Re: Show 59 - For The Birds!

You are correct that The Tubes did 'God Bird Change'. It opened Side 2 of their 2-LP "What Do You Want From Live' set, and they did it very well.
I can be cranky, but you are doing a great job, and I appreciate what you put into the show. Keep it up!

Thanks Terry!

We have a terrible tee from SD and a not so terrible tee (Teerminator from OK, the instigator of this week's show).

Aaah the circle of life (or at least prog)...

Re: Show 59 - For The Birds!

too bad I missed the show completely. Maybe Rick can do it as a replay in the future when he's out of town.

Re: Show 59 - For The Birds!

Term - I erase the show almost immediately after it plays, but at some point if there's a "caw" for it I can rebuild it. We have the technology.

Roger - you're not a city boy are you?

Sharc - I figured you'd miss it, out there making money on Mondays... next week's is already slotted and a Sharc 20 minute favorite is on the list (you'll find out on wed). Thanks for the nice words sunday pm and in the forum here.
