Frenchbloke Broadcasts to the Trees
I came across this request from Frenchbloke, the former bootlegger and member of Tauchseider (previously here), for unheard/unreleased material for a 24hr broadcast he’s doing to a forest (really). There’s no email but presumably twitter’s the thing @frenchbloke.
I’m being let loose for 24 hours with a(legal) FM Transmitter for this: http://www.thedarkoutside.com/index.php/radio-transmissions/ I’m asking people nicely if they have any unheard / unreleased music that they would like broadcast to a forest where possibly nobody will hear it, apart from the trees. Or Deer. Not sure about the goats.
The broadcast to the forest will be around October 6th.
I know it’s very short notice but anything at all, regardless of length will be broadcast to a radius of 10-15 miles in the Galloway Forest. There will be no archiving or streaming and not a hope of it turning up on-line ( unless some madman brings a radio tape recorder to a forest ) Any length 5 seconds – half an hour will be gratefully received, transmitted and deleted.
We have several ‘Yes!’ confirmations and wonderful tracks from people you might know’ A list will be finalised nearer the time.
6th October 12 Noon onward – A712 - any of the laybys and carparks near to Murray’s Monument
Update : Frequencies are in.
You will be listening to The Dark. Outside. 87.7MHz FM
