Dead Air Radio follow-up

Posted by McD

Hugh played a lot of great music on his radio show Wednesday night. If you missed it live you can listen to an archive of it here (this file taken offline on July 15th). Grab it, stick it in iTunes, load it on your iPod and give it a listen.

Dead Air Radio tonight

Posted by McD

Just a reminder to everyone that Hugh is going to be on WCNI from 6-9pm EDT tonight, July 7th (that's 7-10am Thursday July 8th in Japan). He'll be playing a bunch of music that he brought back with him from Japan, and I'll sure that many of the bands they played with on the tour will be heard on tonight's show. If you live within broadcast distance of the station tune in with your radio and leave the limited number of Internet connections available for people who can't pick up the station over the airwaves.

Photo gallery is online!

The Reducers Japan Tour 2004 Photo GalleryWell, it took longer than I hoped but the photos that I received from Richard this morning are now online. You can check them out here: http://www.thereducers.com/gallery/.

I installed some software (Gallery) on the web server to make it easier to upload the photos, create the thumbnails, and manage them after they're uploaded. One of the interesting features of this software is that if you use the [register] link (upper right corner) it will let you rank each photo and post a comment for each photo. Not sure if that has any value but feel free to give it a try.

When you go to the URL above you will see 4 different albums, each from a different day of their trip. Click on a photo to open that album. You'll then see thumbnails for each photo. Click on a thumbnail to see a larger version. If you want to you can click on the larger version to see the photo in it's original full size.

Still a lot of work to do (captions, descriptions of the albums, etc) but I figured I should post this as soon as I had it working correctly. Please leave comments if you have any questions about how it works, problems, or just comments about what you think about the software or the photos.

You are reading the initial posting to a web blog that will be used to document the 2004 tour of Japan by The Reducers. Firestarter, which helped to co-ordinate the tour, will be playing at three of the gigs. Here is the complete tour schedule:

You can find the latest details about the tour (in Japanese) at this site. A rough translation to English can be found via this link.

So, spread the word to anyone you know who will be in Japan between June 25th and July 3rd.
