Bluejay - that's awesome! Very Happy

I wonder how many of us forumers have had SFGs played. Guy played my SFG of Diablo Rojo by Rodrigo y Gabriela and read out my email too, on the show which aired the very same night I got the photo with him after the Southend gig on 1st March 2009, my Garvey Metre(TM) went through the roof!!

I also suggested The Old Matchbook Trick by Lambchop, which Guy then played a few weeks later on 20th July 2008 but he didn't introduce it as a SFG or read out my email/name, which is fair enough since it wasn't a particularly interesting email, and he had a much better story of his own for introducing it.

But it CAN'T have been co-incidence... right? And that got me wondering how many of the songs he plays on the show are actually SFGs but he just doesn't introduce them as such?

Hey thanks for the Rodrigo Y Gabriela song. Loved it. And you have a Garvey Metre? Awesome Very Happy

The first song caught my eye, Big Bad Handsome Man by Imelda May. It caught my eye because it was the song for Guy which I suggested!!!

I'm just listening to Finest Hour now, really enjoyed the song. Smile And how awesome that you not only got a SFG played but also inspired the weekly theme!!

Fantastic stuff BlueJW !! Wow !! Really pleased for you.

And here's me pleased that I got a mention on 6music last Sunday, praising the Bridgewater shows off some (admittedly very good) female DJ that I can't think the name of !!

A whole two hour show about the moon and not a single mention of "Mantra Luna". A wasted opportunity... Wink

A question to all those who record the show or liked to do this.
Have you tried "audacity"? It seems to work quite well, but I tested just a minute. I normally use the "realtek" recorder and some use the freehighq-recorder which disfunctions quite often (the recording sounds like a broken CD)
So maybe the audacity recorder could be a good alternative against the freehq....

Sat listening to the Finest Hour last night and Guy played one of my favourite all time records. It was by Kate Bush called Under the Ivy.

Nice one! Would have been even better had I requested it but hey-ho didn't need to!

See we do listen to it, when we feel we can "cope" he's been known to play some very emotive tracks. To Build a Home still ranks up there as weepy-ville with me!
That and Adem - Love and Other Planets
I've not been able to listen for a little while, but i saw yesterdays play list... looks damn good, as every! I still think Foreign Slippers would be right up Garve's Alley, but he's so far not played her. If you like Jesca Hoop, check her out, heart breakingly beautiful!

I've just been mooching around the Finest Hour website - I can't believe how many ERO members' pictures are up on his board - I think Kim's there twice. I can recognise Mrs Woman and Tamed Lamia - is there anyone else there that I don't recognise?!

I am a bit frustrated about my surfstick. Tried to listen (and record) actual finest hour but it dropped out all the time Evil or Very Mad
I might try the W-lan at the tourist information center but I don't know if they have a fuse...so if anyone records it too...think of me please! (I can recommend "audacity" for recording!!)

Well, mostly when I had connection difficulties it was just the iplayer but today I don't get the bbc website at all. All other websites I checked work well, I just listen to the podcast from Absolute Radio without problems (only a few times browsing breaks but it works)
But maybe the problem will sort out too, at least I have more time this week to listen than last week...

Still no connection. By now I can browse the bbc-sites again but it goes very slowly. The iplayer opens but all you see is that "beach ball of death" turning and turning and turning.... No
I just hope it will be sorted out until next sunday, when I'm at my parents. I hope my dad did not knock out the W-LAN again because it is then the last chance to listen to the actual show... Suspect

Tried it at my parent's flat, my dad said he came in but I still can't get a connection. Sad
It is jinxed. All my net friends I asked get in, I even got in shortly with my old Linux Notebook but could not listen on because I had to leave the flat for an appointment. When I tried with my father's notebook I neither got in!! Evil or Very Mad
It can not be a problem of the provider because I made it with the linux one but it neither can be a windows problem because other people got in with windows. The strange thing is, browsing to the bbc-sites takes minutes until they open, while on my office computer the sites open fastly even though they are java blocked. The iplayer of course does not open because of the java block. But I get at least there but not on my *nastyswear* notebook No
I asked at Ning if someone could record the show for me or download it at thebox.bz and if anyone here can do it I would be glad...

Had another try with my brandnew "Thinkpad" I just bought today but still the same problem. Some netfriends had some problems too but only for a short time. I wonder if this problem might come from the BBC-site...as I said, I can browse any site well, I can listen to all internetradios I know but I can't listen to Garv's show and browsing the bbc-sites goes very very slow... No

Anyone have any luck with song for guy request?
I am up to 8 now with no luck.

Don't think it can depend on tracks I choose because looking at the play lists from previous programmes my choice fits in very well.

Nah - I've never got anything played. I know Tamed Lamia has though and I think Stockhaus did, but I can't be sure.
