That was a blast, literally! 🙂 Not only one of the biggest audiences I’ve had for one of my Gorean Whip Radio shows, but also one of the biggest audiences I’ve had in-world too. Of course, the flip-side of that was lag, and lots of it, to the point where I had to switch away from Firestorm to get my streamer controls to respond! But I soldiered through, and had a load of fun riffing off the crowd in front of me.
Benjamin Brougham, the organizer and lead for the Sci-Fi Expo, provided me with a list of songs he wanted to be played during the ceremony, plus a prepared speech to broadcast. (We’d discussed the possibility of doing that live over Discord, but given that I knew it would be laggy I suggested that he pre-record instead.) I filled around that playlist with my selection of themes from TV shows and films. 🙂
I wasn’t expecting to have such a nice DJ booth, nor have a light-show to accompany it. Thanks to the Sci-Fi Expo team for arranging that. 🙂
And this evening they dropped a new promo video for the event, which features the audio of the audio promo I created earlier this week for Gorean Whip Radio. 😀

As promised, here’s the audio recording of my DJ set from Saturday at BURN2 “The Multiverse”. There weren’t as many people this time, compared to my previous appearance at BURN2 VRC at the end of August, but the upside was that I could actually type in chat without horrible lag! 😛
As promised, here is the recording of my show from BURN2 which took place yesterday at 12pm SL Time.
I was the first act on after the opening, which was pretty cool. Sadly, I only had one hour to perform this time around, as the Fashionistas were doing their show at 1pm, but I continued broadcasting on Gorean Whip Radio after my set time was up.
Yesterday was my 52nd birthday in Real Life, so I decided to go find out what was the UK No.1 single for this week in each year since I was born. 🙂
Some gems in there, plus a few surprises. Also, a lot of ‘WTF?’ songs, which I decided not to play. Though I might throw those into a future show… 😉
Truth be told, some of the more recent entries served to remind me how out-of-touch I am with current ‘pop’ music. Then again, I’d rather listen to (and purchase) stuff that speaks to me, and not follow the crowd. 🙂

First off, apologies for the radio silence (pun intended) most of last week — I wasn’t feeling well, so didn’t do my mid-week show.
Also, I’m late posting this because I forgot to do this on Monday. Bite me, I’m allowed senior moments! 😛
Anyways, here’s Sunday’s show recording plus tracklisting. Unfortunately, one song decided that it didn’t want to play, so the show is a little shorter than normal. Theme was chill-out. I hope you enjoy! 🙂

I had a hiccup with the broadcast, the sound cut out at my end and then the music froze while I was rerouting the audio, so I had to stop and start the streamer to get things going again. Thankfully, I didn't lose the recording, and was able to stitch the whole show together again once I was off-air. —Spiffy
I decided to go with a New Jack Swing theme for today’s show. 🙂 It was fun to put together the playlist, and I’ve not heard some of these songs in a very long time. Yes, there is some fruity language in the lyrics, just so you know. 😉

I’m going to start posting the recordings of my radio shows and DJ sets here, usually the day after they go out. This is from my mid-week show Spiffy Probes Your Ears which I broadcast from The Hold of Axe Fjord in Second Life yesterday at 12pm Pacific Time / 8pm UK time.
I decided to go with a house / techno / electronic mix this week, to keep things upbeat. 🙂 Lots of SL17B talk throughout the show too.
