numerous covid lockdowns are lifted across the continent KDX holds fast
to social distance. There are two pressures rushing the restart: many
policy makers want to salvage the economy by reopening commercial
business and intellectually inferior people want to inflict their low
life presence despite placing more gentile people in at risk. We would
recommend that both groups be given last place when they arrive for
emergency health care and their waiting room should include no good
That said, there's the more
interesting story of our
lastest attempt to restore the full KDX website as we've been shut down
over the last day for testing of a newly rebuilt server. Results are
inconclusive and will require further time spent at half-mast while
efforts continue. We are working from home which doesn't actually
explain anything since the radio station is located at home.

those plans are dashed with today's announced reopening which has

Already these experiments with live

has been uplifted from a sample rate of 22,050 Hz to 44,100 Hz, true CD
quality. And the PZM (Pressure Zone Microphone) used in the recording,
set to omni-directional pattern, has shown an astounding sensitivity
throughout the audio spectrum, but high velocity sounds and blowing
wind have caused noticable pumping of the recorded audio level,
resulting in a technical revue of how the Zoom Recorder functions:
microphone input to the Zoom has plenty of controls for situational
tailoring... a 3-position switch selects low/medium/high sensitivity,
and the digital controls allow automatic input level control or manual.
Additionally there are compressor and limiter choices. Our settings
currently show sensitivity LOW; automatic input level ON; compressor
ON; limiter ON.

Brief Meditation of a Radio
the tradition of radio in realtime the programs on KDX are scheduled
for certain times on particular days but there are occasions when a
scheduled program is unavailable at air time. It happened this morning
when RT News was unavailable for download which opened half-an-hour
without a program. At such time we peruse available choices from a
standby list and pick what appeals to us as the most desirable
substitute. But that only works well when the length of the substitute
matches that of the absentee. Case in point: between the Thom Hartmann Program which ends at 2 PM and Loud & Clear
which begins at 3 PM is exactly 1-hour, but the most useful programs
for this hole run 15-minutes longer than an hour and there's no way of
moving Thom or L&C
because they stream live and are very fixed in place. I solved that
exact problem yesterday by fitting 3 short programs into the hour.
Another situation arises when we
decide to wedge an unscheduled program into the time-table which we
have been doing with our Soundtracks for a
(see yesterday's blog of that title), an act that displaces scheduled
shows and presents the problem of re-scheduling them at the next
available time. We'll be doing it again tonight at 6 PM EST with our
4th outdoor recording trying tweaks and fine-adjustments to share the
ambiance of being locked down in the Mississippi River Valley during
mating season of the birds.
If any of this sounds interesting
we'll be saying more about it on tonight's Pandemic program from the Patio out back. Look

Let's Get Real
Huffington Post is one of my stop-off sites for recent news but the
current headliner seems rather un-called for -- MOMS: HERE'S THE REAL
COST OF YOUR 'FREE' WORK. It's the old trope that a "woman's work" (in
running a household) is a job deserving of pay but for which she is
being swindled like a slave. That's so ridiculous! There's a basic,
fundamental, typical, average, normal human woman who WANTS to have
children, a dog, a kitchen, cleaning paraphenalia and furniture. It's
mostly a big hobby for them and presents a woman in her most desired
role - A HOUSEWIFE. The "wages" come in the form of "support", usually
by a willing husband or sometimes by captive parents who can't very
well leave their disorganized daughters out on the street. If women
deserve employment compensation for doing what they dream of doing
throughout girlhood then I deserve a large CEO level compensation
package for having built the world's most complicated conglomeration of
low power radio stations. Frankly, speaking now to you husbands, the
wives need to give you a generous stipend for providing the habitat
they crave, right down to that goddamned vacuum cleaner that they think
needs to deep clean the carpet during TV football. Let me dig myself in
deeper... so many of the same women who want motherhood but feel
exploited by it ALSO want to simultaneously pursue professional careers
unhampered by ceilings of glass with employers OBLIGATED to underwrite
(fund) her child-bearing sideline complete with maternity leave which
for me would be a hobby leave while I took paid time off from work to
manage a stamp collection. If you want a career in radio you're going
to have to pay me for it. At nearly 7-billion the world's population
doesn't need this station's donations nor do we consider clean carpets
of any concern.

The Story of the
May 11, 2020
Time Travel by Latency
As a word, latency is a delay, a
period between the initiation of something and the occurrence.
radio stream experience latency moves the moment of listening to a
later point in time than the clock moment when the program began. Maybe
it can be expressed in clearer ways, but this morning we entered
latency twilight zone and this description will probably arrive before
comprehension of it. So, the description of what happened. A little
backstory is necessary...
It all began last night at 10 PM,
local time. TUC Radio Overnight
began airing on KDX Worldround Radio, consisting of 16 episodes of
Maria Gilardin's radio program, scheduled to end at 6 AM the following
morning when Fault Lines
begins with Garland Nixon & Lee Stranahan from Sputnik Radio.
Awakening at 6-sharp I noticed that Maria was still airing and after
awhile yet another TUC episode came on. My natural response was to
assume a scheduling error had probably occurred and that Fault Lines was being missed. But a
look at the Zara "On the Air Now Playing" window showed that Fault Lines was on the air
afterall, even though I wasn't hearing it yet.
To make a long story more or less as long as it is, my actual hearing
of Fault Lines
didn't start until 7:25 AM, but amazingly it was from the very
beginning of the show; none was missed! It was the largest longest
chunk of latency in our experience!
Much more common are
latencys of 30-seconds or thereabouts but an hour and twenty-five
minutes? Extraordinary. We wonder what listeners out on the internet
might be experiencing. There's a way to find out, and that will require
having our correspondents tune in from their scattered locations and
compare the time on their clock to the moment a given program actually
begins in compaeison with when it's finally heard.

that honeysuckle! Even on this cool 51-degree overcast morning the
sweet odor of flowering shrubs wafts across the KDX campus. It means
something special being able to detect the scent, it means we are
without covid-19, loss of smell being one of the purported symptoms.
Wouldn't it be nice to be able to send honeysuckle scent streaming
across the internet for your benefit? Perhaps it's a matter of time
until we have an app for that. So many things can get through the
wi-fi's and cables, so long as they can be reduced to 1's and 0's, as
can sight, sound and text. The web is tuned for digital data and unable
to carry analog audio, video or physical objects or odor. It's only
able to teleport some of experience but not all of it. And, as
expressed in yesterday's blog, loses track of time. There's even a
false sense of whereness online by which it seems to be a "place" which
makes us forget we are sitting in a chair looking at plastic. The same
as dreaming where we lose awareness of beds and pillows. Well,
dreams... perhaps the internet is somewhat mixed with dreams... there's
the feeling that everything we need is on there somewhere if only we
luck across the magic URL. But it never smells like anything in
cyberspace no matter how many pixels its flowers may have.

Latency Research Findings
an inquiry into the problem of creeping latency, see yesterday's blog,
we found further that each time VLC Media Player was put in PAUSE to be
restarted later, the incoming stream would pick up where it had last
been playing which caused the resulting latency to increase. When our
programming was being heard fully 1-hour 30-minutes after leaving the
Icecast Server it was time to seek a remedy and here's what worked:
closed every program running on the computer including the VLC Player
but kept the radio stream server running without interuption, ran the
cleaner program to delete cookies and whatnot, brought VLC back up and
linked to KDX-OGG to find we were now running parallel with the program
in progress which happened to be The Critical Hour with Dr. Wilmore Leon from RT America.
still a great mystery in wondering where our programs were during the
time after they'd left the server but before being heard so much
later... were they in a secret buffer cloud in the sky?
are a year older but far less smarter in knowing that latency will
build hour by hour and day by day until again we need to do what
I just said.
If it's difficult to follow what
we're talking about think how difficult it is for us to talk about it.

I remember someone pointing out that the word "so" does not properly
start a thought, but belongs in the middle of a statement in which the
first part of the statement makes a point and the "so" is used between
the opening declaration and conclusion, so, maybe that doesn't explain
it well... how would you put it?
reminds me, did you just notice how my inflection went up at the end of
the question topped off by a question mark? There, see what I
did? Notice how I made it happen again? My sentence starts
and proceeds on a lower pitch of voice then goes up in pitch like I'm
asking a question? Well, if you're really asking a question it's
alright but if what you say isn't a question then it shouldn't go up
and there'd be no question mark? A guest on the Radio Survivor
program ended every sentence as if it was a question and I wanted to
end radio's survival? Stop surviving!
But none of that is the real reason I am writing this morning, I've
been having dreams?
While idling time on the internet during quarantine have you noticed
articles about unusual dreams during lockdown? I haven't taken
the time to read any of those dream articles because I have a radio
station that needs coal in the burner and I've got to shovel but now
I've had a dream and will go back and read some of those articles to
find out if my dream qualifies?
my dream I was interviewing people? I was moving all over with a
handheld wireless microphone approaching all kinds of people but in my
mind I was preoccupied with concerns? For example, to get a clear voice
recording I needed to get close to people and being experienced with
wireless mics I might be out of range of the little radio receiver and
the batteries in the microphone and those in the remote recorder might
run out and I wasn't sure how much time was left on the smart card? I
kept pausing with the thought of editing later to remove the audio
distancing? I was in hallways and corridors, wandered into rooms and
offices, and covered vacant lots for blocks around and one homeless guy
asked how I could ask people about religion when I don't go to church I
told him I didn't need to go to church because all those people did?
Frankly, I think we're mutating and
this is what it's like.

get along with people for any length of time is to stick exclusively to
small talk. People hint at it when they say that "religion and

and human affairs are too hot for words. Maybe that's why I kicked off
this blog entry talking about lawns and grass and yard equipment.
one small more thing... in case you wonder... why does KDX programming
go way off the track like an oil spill on the Chicago Northwestern

Thom Hartmann and breezed straight into "Ask An Atheist" with Sam
Mulvey. This happens when Thom's stream isn't running and our Zara
Automation System makes the decision to find the next available
program. Who knows what goes on at the Hartmann Program... maybe a
technician forgets to start the stream because of working from home?
Anyway, Sam Mulvey is a radio enthusiast who has tried unlicensed low
