  • Hi Stuart

    The 16 July 1990 show stops working after 7 minutes. I suspect the file has gone corrupt and also on the Mooo Server, it shows the file having only 11 MB, whereas in a normal file, it would be much more. Anyway I thought I let you know. Hopefully when you upload it again, the file won't be corrupt.

    • Yeah I know. My flatmate at ripping central let his broadband lapse so have been depending on BT WiFi. That doesn't allow big uploads if the owner of the router is using it. So it had to be overnight and it looks like the full file is there now. Thankfully my PC survived the power supply blowing up! Stuart.

  • Hi Stuart,

    Many thanks for all the adds to the page. On the "Kats Karavan" 4xCD front, I went through the inlay booklet to check which tracks were from sessions and think the others were from regular releases.

    Cheers,

    Steve

  • Hi Stuart

    Appreciate the work you have done in uploading Rich's Peel shows on this site. I just want to clarify with the Apna Sangeet group. The words "Apna Sangeet" in the Punjabi language means "Our Song". The group consisted of Kulwant Singh Bhamrah (K.S.Bhamrah) and Sardara Singh Gill (S.S.Gill) with back up musicians. Now on the discog site, (http://www.discogs.com/artist/1848412-Apna-Sangeet), each fof the band's songs were credited under K.S. Bhamrah or S.S.Gill or both. Confusingly they were both part of the Apna Sangeet group, but would use their own names to credit themselves. No idea why they chose this method, perhaps it's related to contracts on who would get writer's ownerships. Anyway keep up with the good work.

    • Yes it made me wonder how I should credit the track on the listing. It's like a Beatles album with tracks by Lennon and McCartney listed under their own names! The album seems to sell for a lot according to Discogs.

      I had to overwrite your spelling collection as I was in the middle of a large edit but reinstated it afterwards.

    • I'm also surprised by that as well. I'm guessing it's a rare album. Anyway I corrected the track's name. It's not "Danda", but in fact "Put Jatan Da". Mind you Peel mispronounced it as "Bhoot Jatan Da".

  • Hi Stuart

    Thanks for all your SL Tape uploads and my apologies for picky quality control....unfortunately, I've got another slight quibble. I couldn't find the 03 December 1993 file in your Mooo folder...until I realised it was labelled 1993-03-12, not the way you usually do it!

    Take care

  • Hi Weatherman

    Will there be a chance of an upload of the 08 February 1990 BBC Radio One show on the Mooo Server ? I noticed you did a wiki page on that date and it mentioned "tbc". I presume there must have been more tracks.

    Thanks in advance

    • There will be at some point. I'm waiting until I get around to a later tape in the Rich series which also contains tracks from this show, and I will then combine the two.

      I've taken a slight break from the Rich List as I work through my current batch of Slowman tapes as I didn't want to be holding up that project.

      Many thanks for your continued excellence in improving the content of the wiki, a lot of which was created in a rush due to a good deal of material becoming available within a short space of time.

  • hi stuart,


    i can't seem to post a msg on the yahoo groups.

    normally there is a purple button labelled "reply", or "new/start topic", but it isn't there.

    i know there have been some teething problems, but?


    cheers!

      That's what I've been complaining about! Try logging in again, it seems to indicate that you are logged in by displaying your name but that is just due to cookies, you actually need to log in properly.

      Thinking back, the old Groups did that but it was more obvious as all of the posting options were greyed out until you logged in.

  • Hi Stuart, I have a recording of what is purported to be the Peel session by The Sugarcubes on my youtube channel. There are many comments on the upload stating that it is a fake. On the page at 04 January 1988 there is a recording of part of this session listed, but unfortunately the link is incomplete. Steve W advised that I should ask you as you made the page. Is there any way that I could get hold of this file as the three tracks which are on it would confirm whether or not the five tracks that I have are authentic.

  • hi Stuart,

    I'm writing a piece for The Independent about the rise of Wikia as a resource; I'm really keen to speak to a Wikia admin to talk a bit about their experience of using the site. I'm on a terribly tight deadline – just wondered if you might be around tonight (Monday 19th) or tomorrow morning for a quick 10-minute phone conversation? My email is rhodri@mac.com.

    Best regards,

    Rhodri Marsden

    PS – I'm leaving the same message on Steve W's wall, apologies for cluttering it :)

    • Hi Rhodri.

      Many thanks for your interest. I've only recently become an admin and that was really because I do so much editing of the site, but I wasn't otherwise involved in the setting up of the site, its design, policies, user lists and all the other stuff that goes along with being a Wikia admin! So I'm not qualified to speak from an admin's point of view, and I'm not around in the morning.

      Fwiw, I find the Wikia site somewhat like Wikipedia but a bit easier to use, and there's less of the pressure that you get on "Wikipedia proper" in terms of style guidelines, neutrality, source citations etc. Certain aspects of the site are kind of fixed but there's enough flexibility to allow us to do what we want with it.

      I see from the Independent biog that you are in Scritti Politti, I'd no idea they were still around! I remember being into the Songs To Remember album in a big way. I found your Spotify article very interesting. As an early Spotify adopter I wondered how my £10 per month got allocated; I'd like to think that if I chose a track to play this would allocate some of that to the artist/record company. So I have been adding some Spotify links on the site to individual tracks.

      Anyway all the best with the article.

      Stuart

    Hi Steve

    I see you've been doing some detective work on the first batch of SL tapes!

    We seem to have too many minutes for the 24th November 1991 show - but files b and c do overlap files a and d. So b and c are the dance edits and a and d are the main show (minus some dance edited tracks but including others....) will do my track splicing bit to try to recreate the running order but only after a good night's kip and a clear head!

    Hi Stuart

    Thanks for your message. Actually, this was a bonus item: I have been trying to identify the AK shows re a complete list I've been putting together. I realised that the separate track listings did not add up, so I left them as they were rather than trying to concatenate them (with the duplicated tracks). Hope you can make some sense of the way they've been recorded!

    Best wishes

    Steve

  • Dear Stuart, please tell me what the password is for 19 January 1997 (WS). I've tried every single one listed on the page and nothing works, it's driving me up the wall. Yours, Steve.

    • Hi Steve

      Well a mystery contributor added it to the World_Service_96-97 page, step33. That didn't work for the later segments of that show, but I just experimented and step34 step35 and step36 worked. That's also on that page.

      Also I tried harryx and that unlocked the other January 1997 Show, which I think must be the 5th, as the filename implies it is earlier than the show that sav.eloi dated as the 12th.


      Just tape 5 to go now!


      Stuart

    • Thank you Stuart, I didn't think that each file would have a separate password.....obviously my mind is not so devious. All the best, Steve.
