Turn Up the Radio!

For those who have followed me from Urban Terror and Inside The Game you might recall I hosted two radio shows called Urban Radio and Just Push Play [which I feature on the site]. Both shows have been somewhat non-existent this year due to the fact that I have very little free time. Unlike years past, that free time was spent in front of my computers. But a wife, a house and a son are just a few of the reasons I have not been able to follow through and continue those two shows on a regular basis.

Urban Radio will probably be the first to return as the development team [formerly known as Silicon Ice Development], Frozen Sand, LLC gears up for an all new release for Urban Terror. Some call it version 3.8, while others call it version 1.0. Some don’t care what it’s called, as long as it is released. Well, that I can guarantee it, it will be released. But prior to the release we will feature a 2-hour show that will take a look back over the years [coming on 6 years now] at Urban Terror, the team, events we have attended, leagues, the community and history. Not sure Urban Radio will become a regular feature as it once was on iTG or not. I believe a lot of it really depends on what becomes of my potential job opportunity.

I am not sure why, but Just Push Play never seemed to really catch on. Odd too considering the average gamer is in early to mid 30s, which would mean most grew up when I did during the 80s. Even when I began the show a few years back it never really brought in “big numbers” and was mostly done out of my love for all things 80s. I guess in the end that is all that matters, right? I there are many hardcore fans who will listen and others who would tune in if it were on. But I am not sure what direction I am going to take this show, if indeed I keep it. Maybe more music and less talk. We do have some good segments, include the Boob Tube, Flick Pick, Button Bashers, Album Rewind and Finish the Lyrics. So the makings of a good show are there. Maybe you have some thoughts? If you have not tuned in, download a previous show.

I have been thinking how to tie in a show more dedicated to the web site. I figured I could call it the 6th Floor WiRe or The 6th Floor Week in Review. I have seen other web sites I visit do similar things in podcast form, which is what I would tend to lean towards. None of it would be live, it would all be prerecorded and made available via feed once it was uploaded. The show would feature items that have made there way into the web site during the week. Since the site is updated on a regular basis, content is not really a big problem. I would also look to add a few dedicated segments to the web site in the coming weeks in order to support the podcast. Again, lots of this is still in the planning stage and would probably not take place for a month or so.

*Reminder* I still have a major update to do on the web site. So it might be done on Monday or Tuesday, but should return in much better form. Who knows maybe the comments section and RSS feeds will actually work when it gets upgraded. Same goes for the damn gallery plugin I still can’t get working correctly.

Just Push Play #10: Rewind

Last Wednesday, I was lucky enough to have time set aside to present Just Push Play #10. It had been since January that JPP was last on the air and I was able to flashback and revisit the decade I remember so well, the 1980s. I had pre-produced about four shows with the intentions of playing them early in the year, but as things so often happen, time was just not on my side.

Just Push Play #10 can be downloaded now over at Filecloud. This was one of the better shows in recent play, with our Flick Pick, Blade Runner with Harrison Ford, we get up close and personal with Dave and Matty from Moonlighting, while we rewind with The Clash and Combat Rock. Our new Button Bashers segment featured Berzerk. We also debuted a new segment called Finish the Lyrics, where you the listener gets to participate. Congrats to illogical for winning the segment with 2.5 points!

JPP #11 is all ready to go as I am just revising some of the material, now a few month old. Time permitting, we would be pushing play this coming week. Stay tuned for more information over on Inside the Game.
