Audio Firestorm Revisited

Wow - two days in a row. I've been able to post without a hitch again!! Whatever is up with that, I hope it keeps up!

I have been playing with music all night long, moving a select few pieces into their own directory. Unfortunately I had to uninstall one of the new programs simply because it kept creating errors. Darn it. I think it's because I installed into an external hard drive and it didn't like it.

The biggest time eater is organizing the music, then setting up the playlists for each day, even with this new program. But barring catastrophe I should be able to do it. I just don't think I'll be able to do it by the weekend. But since it looks like we're not going to be moving operations anyway - at least not immediately - I am not knocking myself out over it.

The upside is that I've been playing with music all night - mainly oldies. I've been deleting duplicate files and setting segue points, moving uptempo pieces into their own directory so I have a little more control over timed formats. I need to get copies of all of our ads, though, and start organizing those, too.

Still, it's fun having the whole radio station library at home for a few days!

This is going to be short. Never mind sweet: wouldn't want to ruin my reputation, now, would I? I should be sleeping already. That obviously isn't happening but it has to be soon. Today was one minor cataclysm after another, all morning long. My on-air software at the studios closed on me - out of the blue, in the middle of a song. Fun, huh?

Fortunately I had the backup machine already queued up, albeit to a different song. We were back on the air within seconds. Threw off my rhythm for the whole day, though. I gotta sleep so no repeats of that particular fiasco!

Before - After

In the grander scheme of things, no soul can truly be replaced. Each one of us has a place in the universal tapestry. We each contribute our own color and texture. When one thread is snipped too soon, it distorts all the threads around it. Other lives can unravel and tear. If the wrong thread is ripped away, the whole fabric of life becomes dangerously fragile.
