It’s been over two years since I started Radio Clash Live – the first incarnation of RCL came online via AirTime on 5th March 2013 – and it’s be a mad ride. Given the fact that I stopped the Radio Clash podcast last year, and other people ended their mix projects (notable exception: Ian Fondue with Lloydbrary, still going strong!) it seemed right to kill Radio Clash Live! Sad but the group effort didn’t really catch on, and if I’d known I’d be the only ‘live’ person on RCL, I’d never have called it Radio Clash Live! Seeing the Live part made me cringe for the last part of a year…
But from the ashes comes a new thing, phoenix like…I present to you – Classic Bootleg Radio! Same stream, same links, but part of the Bootleg Archive iniative.
From now on, all the tunes you hear on CBR are 100% classic bootlegs, mashups, bastard pop, mixes and NO talk – all pre-2007, so a lot of exclusives, forgotten dusty party starters, but all classics! No schedules, no boring blather from me, just 24/7 tunes.
I need to either rebuild or rebrand this site, or pull it – I dunno…but if you want to know more about the Bootleg Archive currently go to the Facebook page…especially if you have pre-2007 mashups to upload/share.
Regular Radio Clash Live contributor Jeb Edwards aka 50 Pound Note is doing a new regular mix series called The Beat Bash named after the radio show he hosted in the early 1990′s – and of course as with his other mixes such as Kiss The Future and the 50 Pound Note podcasts you’ll be able to hear the latest Beat Bash on Radio Clash Live on Saturday night from midnight to 1am (GMT).
The first installment is up and it’s very good – including tracks from Dead Or Alive, Eurythmics, My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult, Paul Rutherford, Depeche Mode, Meat Beat Manifesto, Severed Heads, Boxcar, Pet Shop Boys and New Order.
Looking forward to more nineties-tastic mixes, and the timing couldn’t be better since that sound is very ‘in’ at the moment, what with Disclosure and Friend Within amongst many others updating the classic garage and house sounds for a new generation.
Thanks everyone who dropped by – remember to tune in 24/7 – the schedule is here I hope my 2 hour mix of Kleptones aka Eric Kleptone, ben soundhog, Ian Lloyd/Fondue of the Lloydbrary, Julien DJ Frogg and Lee Prince 10000 Spoons (and a shout out and Fuck The Harlem Shake for Defunkto aka Shiggi). And PomDeter for his amazing NIN/Call Me Maybe mashup which also got played.
The US repeat of the show will happen for the US/late night people during the 2am-6am Radio Clash slot on Saturday morning GMT – which is something like 8pm-12am CST (before summertime kicks in and we all get really confused) – I’ll schedule it towards the end of the show for those on the west coast.
Still sorting out the blog, but if you want to listen to Radio Clash LIVE try these links:
High Quality Stream M3U – should work iTunes, Winamp, VLC – if it doesn’t try the Shoutcast link, it seems to work best but is lower quality – Songbird will prefer this link though.
Low Quality Stream M3U – should work in TuneIn Android app, as well as good players mentioned above. Again Songbird might prefer this one.
Shoutcast 128kbs stream – this should work for all those players that are a little, well, dumb.
Note that some players might prefer you to just put in what’s called the Icecast mountpoints, so try http://listen.radioclash.com:8000/streamhigh and http://listen.radioclash.com:8000/streamlow instead – these play in the browser on the latest Safari, Firefox and Chrome for instance. It even works on a Pure Internet radio – add the full M3U link as a Custom Station in Pure Connect.
Or click on the player below, it’s Flash and HTML5-friendly depending on your browser.
The launch is on Wedneday 9:30pm 6th March GMT/UTC when Tim from Radio Clash will do a special 2 hour mix.
