  • Hard News: Judging the judges, in reply to Graeme Edgeler,

    Do you assume an SST representative would not add to the conversation in some way?

    I think they would add to the conversation, but not in a way that would be overly constructive

    Can we post The Audience embedded tracks as well? I tried to do one but in the preview it didn't really work. I just wanted to plug a young lady called Isla Norman from Christchurch, who sings whimsical, slightly cynical pure pop ditties, and wanted to post her track "Florence Nightingale" from The Audience

    Dawn Raids, not so much.

    That's very true

    The Norman Kirk government would provide me with an instant answer for one of those on the whole pretty bad "What makes you proud to be a New Zealander" ads - the sending of a frigate to protest French nuclear testing in the Pacific was not only a wonderful piece of showmanship, but the first time I can recall New Zealand having a grown-up, independent foreign policy initiative.

  • Speaker: Music: The Vinyl Frontier,

    I went through a period of just-returned-from-overseas-just-got-married-just-got-a-massive-mortgage-just-had-kids penury, when the only way I could fund new acquisitions was by flogging stuff I didn't listen to any more. it was painful the first time, bu it got easier. And every now and again I have a pang of regret for selling Songs for Cleaning Guppies but it's usually only when I see the stupid prices it lists for, not because I'd ever, ever play it again.

  • Speaker: Friday Music Guest:…,

    An old game called Ascendancy (released in 1995) which revolved around building spaceships, colonising planets and defeating other races, had the most beautiful soundtrack I'd heard in a game up until then.


    The Heroes of Might and Magic games also have beautiful soundtracks - HOMM2's (released in 1996) music played in an ordinary CD player if you put the game disk in the CD player, and HOMM3 (released in 1999) used mp3 compression for its music files way back in pre-Napster days.

  • Hard News: Friday Music: Artists gonna…,

    Some klezmer for a Friday - the Klezmatics

    And a sweeter song from them


    And some crazy Finns - Alamaailman Vasarat, who sometimes manage to sound heavier than the heaviest of metal, even though they're paying cellos

  • Hard News: The Music for Occasions,

    This is the first thing people are going to hear

    Then some of this

    Then some good old tear-jerking Les Miserables

    And some more 80's goodness

    There's lots more, but I'm going out to this one
