In Case You Missed It…
Here’s one hour of live Brexit coverage.
Trouble with the player?
Apologies to Duke Ellington.
You might have heard a new sound on the main program stream… “click ding”. It’s a new feature, and it sounds at :59 minutes past the hour in the morning and during the day (New York Time). It should reach your ear somewhere between :00 and :01 (after buffering at the server and your receiving device).
Because the main stream is programmed as a “super station” for people who like to keep a buzz on, we know you may have issues with keeping track of time. I know I do sometimes. Maybe even more often than that. I can get lost in work, in space, or both. It’s OK, Radio InfoWeb is on it. During the morning and afternoon, there are plenty of time checks, and the “ding” should help too, especially during those long sets. When you hear it, look up and if your clock doesn’t indicate the top of the hour, then what you’re hearing has gotten out of sync with real time. If you care (it’s OK if you don’t), you can resync by stopping the stream (not pausing), and then starting. If you’re listening through a web browser, you might have to refresh the page, or perhaps even close out the tab or window, and come all the way back in. It’s just a matter of how your browser handles audio streaming.
What’s a “super station? Glad you asked. It’s a classification that developed during the golden days of terrestrial (that is, not Internet) radio. A “superstation” is a station that “does it all” – News, Music, Time, Weather, Features, Public Service, and whatever else listeners might find handy. As I mentioned above, Radio InfoWeb’s main stream is programmed as a super station for people who like to keep a buzz on.
If “super” isn’t so “super” for you, then try tuning into Radio InfoWeb World. That’s a stream with the same music programming as the main stream, only minus all the “super station” stuff. It’s a little less lively, and it’s not tuned to the time of day (in New York City). It does have (approximately) hourly newscasts though, albeit from a darker and more questionable source (the US Government). This feed was also designed as a convenient pick-up and filler-inner for pirate or other terrestrial radio stations. Cool, huh?
On the other hand, we put the max TLC into the “main stream” including every effort to keep the fidelity as high as possible (so we won’t kill your buzz by paining your ears that way). The new 128/192K Vorbis stream does just that. Sweetness for your ears.
Thanks for listening! If you’d like to contact us, all you have to do is listen. The info is given out regularly for those who care.
See you ’round the Galaxy!
Morning Emissions rode again this morning from about 7:30am to a little after 9am Eastern (we started a half hour early). In addition to the wake-and-bake, and salutes-to-coffee, we listened to some awesome Jazz, some Pop Funk, and some Space Prog… and shared our waking consciousness.
My producer Minka made me write this, but seriously, usually we’re having too much fun to post to the blog or even tweeter. So what are you doing reading the same old junk and looking at cat pictures when you could be listening to some awesome morning wake-and-bake fun (while you read the same old junk and look at cat pictures)? This is 2014! Wake up… and tune in to Internet radio. Tune into, and get your dose of, Morning Emissions. Most mornings. 8-9 New York time, and rebroadcast most of the time at around 11AM. Sometimes later. Till then!
This DW newscast was broadcast at the climax of this morning’s “Morning Emissions” on Radio InfoWeb…
Listener Gary texted: ” I was.swirving down the road. ” [sic]
What more could be said? Here’s a clip of the climactic end of the show (will be posted in its’ entirety)…
Morning Emissions is heard live from 8am to 9am Eastern time on Radio InfoWeb.

Here’s a roundup of “NSA Criminal Activities” from just the last few days. It’s truly amazing how accepting everyone is of this stuff…
President Obama has signed legislation authorizing more than $560 million in spending on U.S. intelligence efforts over the next five years. That figure does not include the vast array of U.S. spy programs that are kept secret. The law also expands whistleblower protections for employees who report concerns through authorized channels, but it does not extend protections to intelligence agency contractors, like Edward Snowden, who has said there were no adequate channels for him to raise concerns about National Security Agency spying.
Speaking of the oxymoron of “Intelligence in the Executive Branch…

Remember this? I was just playing “Stairway to Heaven” live… and I was musing about the radio station KLSK-FM in Albuquerque, N.M. that, in desperation, played “Stairway to Heaven” non-stop to get some attention. The suicide rate in the area skyrocketed, prompting them to change their format! Well, here’s another version of that story for those interested…
Keep on keepin’ on!
“Happy” seems to have made the jump to an unexpected global anthem for citizens living under troubled regimes. First came the Philippines, a country still picking up the pieces from Typhoon Haiyan. Soon, one followed from Tunis, still reeling from the aftershocks of the Arab Spring. And then another from Moscow. While not a “protest” song in its traditional sense, Pharrell’s “Happy” has taken on a politically charged meaning as an anthem of international resilience.
It’s crowning moment as an international protest anthem came late last month when two Polish filmmakers used it as a soundtrack to a viral video of violent clashes between Ukrainian citizens and government forces intercut with protestors in Kiev dancing. It is haunting to see protesters in Kiev dancing among barricades and answering frankly what would make them happy. “To be happy I need the Ukraine to be free,” one woman answered.

[Updated: Not that Windows 7 is so safe either…]
I’m doing research on this topic. Actually, I’m about to release a document that spells out some of the many ways Windows 8 spies on you in ways that strongly infer the information collected is passed on to NSA as well as commercial interests. All without your knowledge, and all with misleading verbiage as you are prompted to open yourself up to more invasive spying.
Before I do release what I have personally uncovered, I’m looking for other published material on the topic. Please add your comments to this post!!!
The following video doesn’t even begin to scratch the surface:
Windows 7 is said to be spying on you also:
For those not living in Colorado or Washington states, the police may all-to-often be an unwanted part of your life. We New Yawkers are painfully familiar with this situation. This video is dry at times, but it’s important information. Know your rights (via Alex Jones).
There’s a new schedule. Click on “schedule” to find out about the details. For right now… I’d like to tell you about the midnight specials – weekdays.
We’ll be introducing new shows, new music, new ideas, and sometimes putting listeners into the mix. When you hear our phone number, be ready to put it in your contact book!
Starting tonight, at midnight, Eastern Time.
Roll on up. Joint me then.
