Spiffy @ BURN2 VRC Week opening – 30/08/2020

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.

As you’ll hear from my voice-overs, there were many colourful characters attending. Sadly, the lag meant that I was having enough trouble just typing in chat, let alone taking any snapshots, so all the picture you’ll see here were from the soft opening on Saturday 29th with some areas still under construction.

Spiffy’s Birthday Special Show – 08/07/2020

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. 🙂

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! 🙂

Gniddt – Arovane
Seq Changing Airborne — The Flashbulb

Spiffy’s Sunday Supplement – 28/06/2020

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. 😉
