Hi everybody,

Today I built a simple kitchen radio, playing recent music from our kitcheners. Its on the bottom of every forum page. It'll open up in a seperate window and shuffle through a selection of kitcheners songs.
Might be handy when you're in the car, or busy with other things than reviewing songs on the forum  ;) ;)
I enjoyed listening to the kitchen radio so far, I always get very happy when listening to kitchenism!!

Simple manual:
-Click the radio (located at the bottom of each forum page)
-Hit play to start shuffle-ing through the songs (and hit play again to pause)
-Hit >> to skip to the next track
-Hit the heart in the player if you like what you hear
 -Click the Soundcloud logo when you like the track you're listening to sounds soooo good to you that you'd like to add a comment on the timeline  :pompom:
-Close the popup to stop playback

I hope you'll enjoy the kitchen radio as well!

Cheers!
:mart:

Kitchen Radio Jingles entries :

1. @Bill from November Sound  : https://soundcloud.com/user-970238121-184953199/kitchen-voice-over-3/s-PmtQB
2. @Mar T. : https://soundcloud.com/martimedia/kitchenradiojingle1/s-w7GNW
3. @oorlab : https://soundcloud.com/oorlab/songwriterskitchenradio-jingle-oorlab15sep2018/s-imfTs

Please feel welcome to submit your own  :pompom:  jingle  :pompom: , we're adding them to be played randomly between the songs! Just submit them as a reply in this thread and I'll add them to 'the list' above. We'll put in a new jingle once 10 extra songs have been added to the radio station. We'll add them in the order they were submitted. Plz try to keep them short (let's say max 10 seconds)..
Plz post your jingle to your SC page (private link is ok) so everybody in this thread can evaluate the jingle and give some tips/pointers. When it's done please email the .wav (CD quality) to me @Mar T. , I'll add the jingle to the kitchen SC page then.

Actually that was an idea that we invented as a community (a while ago) but it was still on my to-do list..  ;) ;)
Was my pleasure to build a first version..
Thx!!

This is extremely cool @Mar T. ! Thank you for being a technical genius!
Just listened to the Kitchen Radio on my way home from work. Wow, this almost feels like a real radio station. Just with way better music! ::headphone::

The only thing missing is the occasional „sweepers“ between the songs. Maybe we should produce a couple of those. Some very low and cool sounding voices, saying things like

THIS IS KITCHEN RADIO - ALL SONGS SERVED FRESH FROM THE KITCHEN

or

YOU ARE LISTENING TO THE COOLEST STATION ON THE NET - KITCHEN RADIO - FRESHNESS GUARANTEED

or

ALL HOME-GROWN MUSIC FROM SONGWRITERS IN THE KITCHEN - THIS IS KITCHEN RADIO

backed by some cool sound effects. Would be funny, wouldn‘t it? ;D

Cheers,
Mark

Hey good to read you enjoy the new gadget Mark!

Now that is a pretty cool idea @Mark Luto , and let's ask everybody to record some of those 'sweepers'/'jingles'.. I think we may need 1 per 10 songs in the list, so 5 will do for now.
Everybody: post your 'sweeper' here and receive 20 karma points for the effort. We'll select the best to actually be on the radio station!
EDIT: see opening post (1st post, OP) for details.. 

Cheers!

What a great idea and a good way to hear stuff you might have missed over time.

For example - I'm just enjoying the gem of a song "Fading Shadow",  a collab between  @Jurgen and @Mar T.

Great work folks

Wow, new site style, then a snippet competition, and now this amazing Kitchen Radio. Well done to all you behind the scenes geniuses who are spoiling us all at the moment.  I am seriously impressed by these wonderful initiatives - thank you!!!  ::thumb::
If you like novels with a musical theme, why not try 'Sixth Beatle - When Music Changed The World', easily found on Amazon and Google. It is amazing, although as the author I may be biased!
