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.
Music played on today’s show:
Pratt & McClain – Happy Days
R.E.M – Stand
David Bowie & Mick Jagger – Dancing in the Street
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.

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.
