Radiotracker

This is a great piece of software! Radiotracker does what I’ve done as a boy by recording music on cassettes from radio stations… this software runs web-streaming radio stations and records them automatically. All web radio stations transmit the artist and the title so the program knows what it is recording. This way you can build a 100% legal mp3 library of music titles! Yesterday I installed the basic version that came on a CHIP magazine CD and the program recored like 20 rock titles in just a few minutes. Fantastic! You can specify what genre you would like to recored and set up to 7 parallel stations to record from. Great stuff!

Motown Years

After Jackos death my wife ordered the “Motown Years 50” compilation with early songs of Michael Jackson at Amazon. Really great stuff. Very pleasant sound. Even our baby girl who is 7 months now likes it 🙂

You can check out samples of the songs  here:

Jacko

Michael Jackson’s Thriller has been my first music cassette. In the early eighties I got a Walkman with fancy orange earphones and this cassette. Now Jacko is dead. Quite sad.

There are tons of articles at the moment but OMG has quite a lot I can recommend: http://omg.yahoo.com/news/mystery-surrounds-michael-jacksons-sudden-death/24348

Uri Geller thought it’s a hoax… 😉 and I was quite surprised I must admit. 50 is not an age to die if you are not sick.

2. All I Want For Christmas Is You – Mariah Carey

3. Driving Home For Christmas – Chris Rea

4. Santa Claus Is Comin’ To Town – Frank Sinatra

5. Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas Frank Sinatra

Popstars casting band Queensberry

medium_500

Popstars is  a popular casting show here in Germany. This year they casted a band called Queensberry (what a sick name btw – sounds like jelly – http://queensberrys.de/). IMHO they decided for the totally wrong people but maybe that was their plan and intended. Just see how they look like and sound – it nearly hurts:

Now see who had to go in the casting, Jill a gril from Switzerland – perfect voice – just listen to that FTW:

Well done Pro Sieben (http://www.prosieben.de/music_cd/popstars/), you bunch of idiots…
