- Siouxsie (finally): 20th October, 2004

After the recently made available Robert Smith and Underworld shows, I've finally gotten around to uploading the Siouxsie show to complete the triumvirate (don't get to use that word very often). Can someone please count how many times she uses the word 'amazing', I've lost count whenever I've tried.

Siouxsie hosts the Peel show, 20th October, 2004:

THANKS, but ....

OH NO ! it's bad quality !

Anything less than 128 kbps does sound "inferior" (and I'm not one of those self-deluded snobs who deride any "lossy" format) !

Some folk who share mp3 files indicate the quality after the file description.

If anyone has this in decent quality, please make available.

Talking about unusual words - last night the Radio Merseyside commentator on the Chelsea v Everton game used the word 'denoument' - I kid you not !
I've got 2 degrees and even I don't
know what it means .........

Are you sure? It sounds pretty good to me!

It's encoded at 64 kbps / 24 khz.
File size is 54 Mb for a 2 hr show.
'Nuff said.
Mind you, I agree that it is very personal. I find that stuff encoded at 64kbps can sound "tinny", like a medium-wave broadcast ; 128kbps sounds to me pretty similar to the original FM radio broadcast........

So It Goes said...

Dénouement is French and in literature it means 'a series of events that follow a dramatic or narrative's climax, thus serving as the conclusion of the story. Conflicts are resolved, creating normality for the characters and a sense of catharsis, or release of tension and anxiety, for the reader.'
How that ties in with football I do not know.
Whether the programme is bad quality or not (not having heard it yet) is surely aside from the fact that without the efforts of the person who originally recorded it and encoded it, we would not be listening to it at all, since the BBC do not see fit to make such shows available for public consumption.
Thanks for putting this up, Adam! stay free, buddy.
