Robin Valley Community Radio - Station ID

Filed under: Audio recordings — Scott Redd @ 11:21 pm

I got this crazy idea to start up a neighborhood radio station. It’s not pirate radio, but rather unlicensed, low-power permitted under FCC Part 15 rules.

Here’s the station ID I play at the top of each hour.

PeaceFest 2005 - Christie Woods - I Don’t Feel No Ways Tired

Filed under: PeaceFest 2005, Podcast, Music, Audio recordings — Scott Redd @ 10:18 pm

On the stage at PeaceFest 2005 was to be the quartet Nu Beginning, but unfortunately, a death in one of the group member’s family prevented them from performing. Instead, we were treated to an outstanding solo performance by group member Christie Woods.

Listen here to her rendition of the old gospel tune, “I Ain’t No Ways Tired.”

PeaceFest 2005 - Main Entry

Filed under: PeaceFest 2005, Music, Audio recordings — Scott Redd @ 12:56 am

Each year the Unity Church of Omaha hosts PeaceFest to help raise money for the New Covenant Center’s Peace Education Programs.

Oddly enough, the New Covenant center does not have a web presence, but you can email them at mcosss@juno.com for more information.

On the program were a silent auction with items and services donated by many local Omaha artists, musical performances, poetry readings, and a mime troupe.

PeaceFest 2005 found me with my microphone placed inconspicuously on the seat next to me as I recorded the following performers:

  • Sacred Heart Freedom Choir
  • William Welter and Mike Godfrey - Violin
  • Fritz Thorn - Singer/songwriter, piano
  • Christie Woods - Singer, piano, member of quartet Nu Beginning
  • Sandra Brennan - poet
  • Deb Jennings - piano

I regret that I arrived too late to get a recording of Mike Murphy playing guitar and his Native American flute. The mime troup, Messengers of Christ Mime Ministry were amazing to watch, but the art form didn’t lend itself well to a sound recording.

I’ll post each recording as it’s own entry on the blog, so be sure to come back and check for new posts, or better yet, subscribe to the podcast RSS feed.

Wake Up Sleepyhead

Filed under: Podcast, Ambient, Audio recordings — Scott Redd @ 7:32 pm

I need a little something extra to help me get up in the mornings. As the years pass, it seems I have to keep uping the ante, as wimply little beep, beep alarms just don’t do the trick.

A few years ago I found Timex electronic alarm clock that had a built-in sound chip where I could record my own wake-up sounds. My daughter has great fun by randomly changing the recorded message to the strangest of volcalizations.

A few months ago I stumbled across a traditional looking analog alarm clock with bells on the top with a dinger that moves back and forth between them. What makes this particular alarm clock remarkably different is its size. It’s comically huge, easily three times larger that what should be normal. The face of the clock has a small-print advisory:

Warning: This alarm will wake you up.

And that it does. Despite its amuzing proportions, it is quite loud.

However, even with my voice-chip alarm, giant mechanical bell alarm, and my wife’s alarm, I still needed something extra to arouse me around 5:30 a.m. I found that my cell phone has a daily alarm, and by setting it to vibrate, it makes the most annoying buzz on my wooden dresser.

In the following recording, you will hear what it sounds like when all four alarms sound. This recording has not been altered or layered in any way. As a bonus, the microphone captured a peal of thunder during the recording.
