Bonediscomix, Every two months, on the first Thursday of the month, 19:00 UTC

Tada!

Welcome to our new host, Mark Boon, who will regularly broadcast his Bonediscomixes on our webradio from now on!

Write the dates down in your calendar, and spread the word among your friends: the show will take place every two months, on the first Thursday of the month, 19:00 UTC, for approx. 1 hour.
And it starts this week, Thu. 12.

The concept is simple: to each show its own theme. This week the word is… speed car 🙂

And if you ever miss it, don’t worry: re-runs are scheduled every two weeks after the initial broadcast.

Huge kudos to him, and welcome, once again. He’s now officially part of the webradio DJ roster, along with The Robot Scientists and their Spaced Out Disco Sessions.

P.S. Another radio show soon to be unveiled, stay tuned…

Collaborative webradio: more content, more features, more fun

Our radio station is aging a bit, that’s why we’re soon going to switch to a state-of-the-art platform with more features and more content.

Honestly, I’m quite proud of this new baby, it will resolve all the problems we are currently facing with our old system. Collaborators will be able to easily broadcast what they want, how they want, remotely, and any time. And, you, listeners will be given all the features you ever wanted: track requests, submit tracks for airplay, cover arts, votes, ratings, precise dynamic schedules, etc. You name it, you’ll have it.

Exciting.

But it’s still not ready for prime-time, yet. I’m looking for collaborators and contributors who know their way in Java to help me finalize a few things. Or just join up if you want to add your own features if you like.

http://java.net/projects/shampoo
http://shampoo.ddcr.biz/pages/Home
https://www.ohloh.net/p/shampoogwt

N.B. Hey, of course, you can use this platform for your own webradios, it’s free for everyone!

Timothy e Luca – Due

delittobluegay

Obscure italian disco masterpiece or total crap that needs to be forgotten as soon as possible? Either way, this 1979 gay-themed track is all about one of the two guys getting horny listening how the other one cheated on him, I’m pretty sure it needs no translation whatsoever. For sure, this is strictly for sleaze experts only.

The Cost Of Living

It sounded like a promising idea, but in the end I don’t know. Anyway, running the webradio costs some heavy money so it may help a tad.

merch16516868

T-shirts sporting seminal Disco record label logotypes from Europe are now for sell

– these are long dead and buried record labels so no copyright should be infringed anyway, but I may be wrong: protected artworks will be quickly removed on request.

For every bought shirt, 4€ are collected and will help covering the costs of the webradio.

At the moment, are featured:

  • Memory Records
  • Ciao (the promo marquee)
  • Squish Records
  • Zanza
  • Derby
  • Crash Records
  • Hansa International
  • Banana Records
  • Melba Disques

  • Real Music
  • Rifi Recordings
  • Baby Records
  • Alfa Record Kabushiki Gaisha
  • Ibis Records
  • Discomagic
  • Sensation Records
  • Sauce Internacional

Tell me if you’d like other labels to be added in the short term.

memories-of-the-future_promo2

Hey friends,

our first track “Landing on Mars” has been released on a free MP3-download album called “Memories of the future”. You can download the album at

Select Start Records“.

Track number 14  is “Landing on Mars”. It is a Moroder based number with some nice guitar elements and sounds modern as well as it  sounded usually in the good old eighties.

It’s kind of a start to us. Let’s see what will come …

Nice weekend @all
