Sneaky TT Broadcasting System 2 (9/5/11)

8:25:42 – This is an experimental “concept show” that explores the outer limits of what an Internet radio show can be. While it is over 8 hours long, it is presented in a lo-fi audio, which sounds similar to an AM radio broadcast. It’s 86.8 MB – about the same size as a 95 minute show at standard 128kbps quality.

I am releasing it without any show notes – and that’s part of the concept – that you can listen with no idea what is coming next.

I suggest listening in a player that can keep track of where you last left off, which most programs and devices allow for.

Because of the experimental nature of this show, I am not including it on the podcast feed, because I know it may not work for everyone. But if you want to explore this little audio world, you can download it here.

I really think this could make for a very cool listening experience… or perhaps it just goes too far?  …let me know what you think!

  2. A smidgen on the long side maybe, but as long as I remember to click resume instead of play… 😛

    Works well as “background noise” while doing other stuff on the computer that doesn’t involve it’s own audio track. If I put it on my portable player (aka phone) I would just simply not get to any of the other shows this week though LOL.

  3. Oh and I loved that Gyruss music, one of the more memorable games I would play all the time on the Commodore 64. Though I could never remember the name of it back then, we would just refer to it by the time code on the cassette player we had to fast forward to in order to load the game.

    Those “Turbo Tape” collections where fun, dozens of random games jammed into one cassette and you never knew quite what it all was, all you had to go by was a list of titles and time codes for where on the tape to start loading made by whoever compiled it. You could have hours of fun exploring a tape (partly because it would take like 10+ minutes (which felt like hours) to load a game off the cassette). I know there where some game cartridges for the Commodore 64 as well, but for whatever reason (expensive to produce I guess) they where extremely rare (around here at least).

  4. Pretty fantastic. I skipped about 2 hours that didn’t thrill me (video game music and fm synthesis). I thought that Sneaky TT was a crazy character and was hoping to hear from him but it was just Frank hosting (which aint bad).

  5. Listened on and off for a few days and finished the last 1/3 or so while playing a few League of Legends games, may have been a coincidence but I won every match except the last one when the show ended about half way though 😛

    Yeah, no prices necessary. I think you may technically owe me a Pelter CD-ROM for listening to all your shows (don’t recall what the conditions where exactly, I caught episode 200 some time after the fact if memory serve), but I’ll survive 😉
