Chucho Valdes postponed
http://www.wwoz.org/events/207693


Checked the 'OZ web site in preparation for listening to tonight's concert broadcast and find that "due to technical difficulties" (dang, that phrase used to irritate the devil out of me) they will record but not broadcast until Wednesday at 4PM.

I'll be at work at that time. Boo, hisssss!

So, enjoy, those who get to go tonight!

Yeah like when we hung down the mike into Tipitina's and the cord did not reach.

Re: Yeah like when we hung down the mike into Tipitina's and the cord did not reach.

You know for a while I was thinking that we never hung a mike down into Tip's, etc. but I guess we did a couple times or more. I remember mixing both a feed from the soundboard with a mike, since soundboard alone to me is so sterile and out of balance with what is heard in the room. But I think I now recall that for a while we left a mike in place connected to it when the an opportunity arose. I remember more clearly the mixed sound since it took more effort. But really the technical parts were just a blur, I remember most the musicians and people, what they did and said.

"due to technical difficulties"

Yes, I remember you used to actively discourage the on-air use of "due to technical difficulties" at KCHU back in the '70's. Your instructions: "Just say what the problem is."

Re: "due to technical difficulties"

PS: but I am a long way away from any place and time where people would care what I think about such matters.

Ned received a photo last night of Chucho grinning widely (!), holding up the Gottschalk sheet music reproductions Ned gave him.

Likely Ned will be getting a recording of the concert. We'll see, but if he does, do you want him to send it to you too?

Love, C.

Yes yes, if not any trouble. There's a person who records many of OZ interesting broadcasts and torrents them but I imagine the recording El V would get would be "pre-broadcast".

If el V gets it, so will you.

Love, C.

Chucho broadcast

a torrent site user posted parts that were broadcast. Did you guys get it? If not, let me know and will burn it for you.

Re: Chucho broadcast

Ned was so busy he never followed up on that with David. So the answer is "No!" Alas.

Sure, if it's not any problem, please send it to:

ned at qubadisc dot com.

Love, C.

Yep, The cord didn't reach for OZ last night when they broadcasted the Sandy benefit...oh well. They got some of it! Perhaps that's the benefit I should really be working on- help OZ get their live broadcasts out sans bullshit. Anyway, you did miss alot with the Joy show, and with the Jackson theater show- both were incredible.
