Major musical morsels to lift the mood within.
STOP PRESS copy and paste from fakebook minutes ago:
I'm absolutely stoked to announce that - after a lot of enquiry and experimentation, not to mention some highly helpful recommendations from generous tech-minded friends - Jack's Hit House is ready to roll out broadcast quality live DJ sets, tailored for the celebrations of those in isolation.
I wants kids stuck inside to have brilliant birthdays regardless, lovers to waltz through anniversaries, families and sharehouses to party with a passion.
All services negotiable and largely barter at this stage I dare say.
All you'll need is one URL link like this (if yr reading this on Friday night it is live NOW) and any device will receive a signal as pristine as the files played - no decay, no loss.
Send wirelessly to speakers via Airplay, wifi or bluetooth or run a headphone jack out to proper hifi systems and luxuriate in lush stereo sound.
Up to 39 households can access my work simultaneously so you'll be at liberty to share with relatives and mates, then link via Zoom or other apps for social scenes and exchanges.
Here's a live example right now - recorded at Good RidDance outside The Hub on federal election night. I'll follow it up with another set after so as many folks as possible can witness the unrivalled streaming sound quality in real time tonight.
Enjoy - and don't hesitate to get in touch when you next need terrific tunes in yr abode!
Now back to Shithouse proper, with yet more by way of resources, this time radio replays:
First, you can hear the full half hour of my national chat with Indira Naidoo via Nightlife on ABC Radio courtesy of the player at the top of this page here. I got to share three exquisite songs and I couldn't have been happier with both their span and relevance. The first was Vera Lynn's We'll Meet Again.
Secondly I do recommend a listen to last week's extraordinary program on FBi. I've never encountered so much sincere love, gratitude and support from listeners in all the decades I've been on air. I was more or less dissolving in tears from the first few texts.The messages from the last half an hour alone filled a gmail screen and were profoundly sweet.
A lot were triggered by my acknowledgement of the dire financial straits the station is in. That is also why our Diary of Death page now looks like this. Please either subscribe or donate now if you have any means. We are gonna need our independent local outlet in coming months like never before.
Saturday April the 4th ~
Jack Off will return to the air live between 3 and 5 tomorrow arvo. Now you know how drastic the situation at the station is I'd appreciate any assistance you can muster. Text 0409945945 or call 83322999 to say g'day, share yr tales from iso or to clue me in as to any financial fare you've made available on the FBi site.
This is not a supporter drive. This is just me doing whatever I can to help us survive.
