This Halloween, I'm going to bake myself a Halloween cake, light some candles, turn the lights off, and listen to recordings of classic horror stories read by masters of the form. Need to beef up the story list! [more inside]
Does anyone remember the posting of a full 24 hr broadcast day of a radio station from the classic radio era? I think it was from the 20's 30's or 40's. It was posted on soundcloud and was posted on an fpp here, but I can't find it anywhere.
A long string of obscure messages. Almost like code. Said in a low voice, a hypnotic monotone. I though it might be the Shipping Forecast, but that has some sense to it, in that it uses recognizable area/place names. What I'm thinking of seemed more mysterious, harder to parse. Does this ring a bell? Thanks.

When I was a teenager in the 1980's, I noticed that if I turned the radio dial on my FM radio all the way to the end, I picked up this weird transmission of repeating tones. [more inside]

Looking for an online music database, music search engine which would allow me to filter musical acts by genre and their country of origin (Canada, specifically). Is there a site out there like AllMusic or Last.fm offering this? I've looked in vain for filtering of this sort from these and other musical databases. [more inside]

Back-to-school-filter: I'd like return to school to pursue training in broadcast engineering. Are there any programs you recommend? (Bonus if they're in Chicago-ish). Or should I just look into getting a general electrical engineering degree? [more inside]
I'd like to "broadcast" my MP3 based collection of classic radio drama and spoken word recordings so that I can listen to them on a 1930's era AM radio. There are all sorts of little USB to FM transmitters, but I can't find a convenient (as in, no soldering required) solution for AM. Any suggestions? [more inside]

Anyone know of a good online glossary of radio news broadcast terminology...differentiating between expressions like "voice," a "cut," etc.? I'm a little rusty and need a refresher.
I'm looking for a gadget - essentially a low powered stereo FM transmitter I can plug into the sound output of my PC and broadcast the music on my harddrive to the various clock radios and stereos around my house. I guess a 30m range would be ample (although it does have to get through some pretty thick walls). So far the closest thing I've found are tiny battery-powered transmitters designed to plug into a CD-walkman and sit next to your car stereo while you drive - pretty useless for my purposes. Does anyone out there know of a suitable transmitter? And here's the crunch - do you think it would even be legal in Australia?
