abarbarian Posted March 10, 2013 Share Posted March 10, 2013 https://hylobatidae.org/?action=articleinfo&id=52 Timezones. It's live radio, but all the timing is wrong. Namely, the written-in-stone Radio 4 schedule must not, under any circumstances, be allowed to become misaligned from the rising and the setting of the sun. How could anything (or anyone) remotely British even think of operating normally if the Friday evening comedy gets broadcast on Friday morning, or if the Book at Bedtime arrives early in the evening? Or heaven forbid, if Woman's Hour escapes from its usual 10am ghetto? Cue the Radio-4-Matic. http://www.everydaylinuxuser.com/2013/02/using-your-raspberry-pi-to-rip-music.html In the 1980s a good number of teenagers and children obtained their music by playing the charts on Radio 1 through a portable stereo. With a 90 minute TDK cassette at the ready we would sit and wait for each song to come on from 40 down to 1 and every time a song we liked came on we would hit the play and record button. Great care was taken to make sure we hit pause before the DJ ruined it all by speaking over the top and a pen was at the ready to write down the artist and song on the tiny lines made available on the inlay card. If you were lucky enough your stereo had a counter which would tell you where in the tape each song started and finished so that you could fast forward and rewind to the songs you liked the best. If you are lucky enough to have a Raspberry PI then this guide will show you how to do the modern day version of recording off the radio. Now though you don't have to worry about the adverts because the software is clever enough to strip the adverts and the voice of the DJ. Several things to do when you win the contest Pi. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
