Ooops, a late update as it’s easy to think you’ve already done this bit… A 12″ special this week, with all the music coming from vinyl records of the 12″ single flavour. TK is joined by Xavier and Hedgie once again as they dissect the week, rant about things, and even squeeze in a couple of games of Quiplash. And the studio didn’t break or catch fire.

Goodbye 2016, you will not be missed. TigerTails Radio welcomes 2017 in with open arms as TK and Hedgie are joined again by Xavier in his remote studio in the middle of nowhere. To see in the new year it’s an all vinyl special with all the songs being played on real 7″ singles. So expect lots of pop and crackle to be heard. There was a technical difficulty with the YouTube feed for the final song, but luckily the feed recovered so the end of the show is intact, but the podcast will have the whole thing. Check there to see what was missed by the viewers. This episode also features the return of Quiplash! And this time, it’s at full speed.

Season 10 Episode 04 Podcast Uploaded

Well, the perfect run had to end at some point. This week things break. Mostly because Felis provides content which the cast are not prepared for, and they discover how hard it is to add content when the show is live already. For those watching the YouTube feed, there is a few minutes of silence as TK and Hedge forget to add the audio feed to one of the title cards, but this does get fixed in the end after the YouTube viewers of the live show shouted at him. All this and more on the TigerTails Radio Season 10 Christmas Special…
Starring TK, Hedgie, and Xavier – with bonus section from Felis.

Music played on today’s show:
Song 1
Wham! – Last Christmas

Song 2
Michael Bolton – White Christmas

Song 3

Another week, another show where nothing breaks… Not sure if comfortable about this run of luck. TK is joined by Hedgie and Xavier as they run down another week’s batch of news, gaming talk, discussion topics, and such. This week, TK has had a bad day and when given the chance to rant about the railways… Oh boy does he take it. Xavier also almost gets a chance to spoil more Final Fantasy XV, but TK ain’t got time for that!

The first show in the main run where nothing really broke. We even managed to get a guest on the air in the form of Southpaw, who was meant to be down for the show but ended up getting ill so couldn’t make it to the studio. The joys of remote studios. Many good songs were played, some on vinyl (whoo!). Much fun was had, even if the last talking point took a bit of sombre tone.

Season 10 Episode 01 Podcast Uploaded

A return to form in every expected way. Open Broadcast Software decided it didn’t want to broadcast any audio to the YouTube feed, so the show was stopped and restarted (the Podcast is fine, however). Then YouTube decided it didn’t want to the show to continue so refused the reconnection. This was fixed by a total stopping and restarting of the show on YouTube, hence the reduced run time for the TubeCast. Check the podcast to hear exactly what went on during the down period. The rest of the show ran like clockwork, so we used our allotted 20 minutes of breaking everything to good effect. Music returns and TK tries to run a tight ship to get the music out on time. We’re still getting used to this whole time-sheet business.
Starring TK, Hedgie, and Xavier.

We’re back. Well, mostly. Test shows are fun like that. The only time when we can break everything throughout the whole length of the show and not just the first 20 minutes. This time, nothing went too seriously wrong and much fun was had by all. We get to look at the new studio layout and see the TK pressing the buttons for once. All good fun stuff. As test shows go, this one went rather well.

The Tenth Coming

It has come to this. Many nights and days of moving and sorting, reorganising and faff, all culminating in the ability to start the test shows for Season 10. So at 8pm GMT on Monday 21st November, TigerTails Radio Season 10 will return for the first night of testing. The first thing we will be testing is the YouTube Content ID system, as we have located 10 tracks which are all real songs but currently licensed to be played in videos worldwide. We will not be using all 10 (probably), but they’re there if we want them. We are looking to add more music into the format of the show, though, to break up the long spells of waffle. Music will be provided using a mixture of CDs and vinyl as we have the record player back in commission, with Creative Commons things coming from the laptop as per Season 9. This means that while music can still be submitted via the Submit page, you can now also email in any commercial song requests, and so long as YouTube will allow us to play it then we should be able to comply. That’s the theory, anyway.

Amendments on how the studio is wired are currently preventing games of Quiplash from working, but we’re looking for a workaround on that.

In happier news, there is a Discord server up and running for the show. Look on the right and you’ll probably see the widget which will allow you into the channel if you’re a Discord user. If not, we still have the YouTube comments and IRC as places you can chat. Those with a microphone and decent connection, however, may get the chance to join us live on the show if using Discord as it should be relatively easy to get people on air. There will still be the IRC channel running too for those who want to be there, as well as the YouTube chat thing – which we will try to monitor this season. Does this mean we’ll bring back things like 20 questions and Blankety Blank? Don’t know, we’ll see.

So, join us at 8pm GMT for Episode 00 of TigerTails Radio Season 10 – the first test show. Hopefully we won’t need to go to 00.5, but watch this space. Come chat in the Discord server or in IRC, and we hope you enjoy the show.

Progress

For those paying attention, during this downtime between Seasons 9 and 10, the studio is being reformatted so that all the audio equipment is removed from TK’s room and moved into the lounge so that all the cast in the studio can be on camera at once (camera angles allowing). Not just that, but thanks to White Virus (from BeatPort FM, the new name of Virus Core Radio from the BritFur FM days) we now have some rather wonderful CD technology added into the mix. This means that we’ll be doing something resembling preparation before each show for Season 10. It feels strange and weird. Before all that, however, has been the task of moving furniture, and throwing things out in order to make space for all this to happen.Work in Progress
As you can see from the progress picture, things are well on the way. What you can see in the picture is the furniture now in the lounge with the Shoutcast broadcasting machine and the “XavierPC” (the one used for the Google+ Hangout with Xavier when he remotes into the studio) both in place. The mixers are in location, with the CD players below the black mixers, and the compressor under it all. What you can’t see is the chaos behind the camera, as one section of the lounge is ruined to make another tidy. However, once TK’s room is sorted, things can be put straight. This means things are still on schedule for our restarting in November as planned.

Whoo!

Now, to wrap this post up. There are still a few things to be wired in for TigerTails Gaming, plus one or two other bits or bobs. Then there is the task of tackling TK’s room (which now no longer has any PCs in it). Watch this space for more info on when the show is coming back. All being well, early November for the test shows, with the main Season 10 starting mid-November with any luck. Until then, farewell.
