Station Unlimited – Website Redesigned with WordPress

Station Unlimited is my site for all my old audio works and also newer stuff that doesn’t fit into The Overnightscape format. I like to call it “The Overnightscape Underground”.

I redesigned the site with WordPress, converting all the old content into posts, backdated to their original release dates. So now, things are better organized and easier to listen to.

I just released a very cool “audio field trip” I did last Saturday with my friend Peter, called “The Motor Excursion Ruffians #3”. Also, I released “Audio Street Fair Blues” which I mentioned on The Overnightscape #602.

I plan on releasing a lot more cool stuff on Station Unlimited.

White Stripes Tonight

Last Thursday The White Stripes announced a surprise show in NYC today, at the newly renamed The Fillmore at Irving Plaza. Tickets went on sale 10AM Saturday at the box office – $30 each, cash only, 2 tickets max per person, photo ID required. Instead of a ticket you get a voucher which must be presented with the photo ID to get in.

My sister-in-law Carrie and I got on line at about 5:45 AM. As we later found out, we were 124th and 125th in line. We finally got our vouchers at around 11:15 AM. I did a lot of recording which will be heard on an upcoming episode of The Overnightscape.

Around 8:00 AM someone took a video of the line. You can see me and Carrie at the 0:50 mark sitting on the ground (1:13 if it’s counting down). She is wearing black and I am wearing green.


Rumor has it only 350 people on line got to buy tickets, with another 150 being sent home empty handed. I’m looking forward to the show!

UPDATE: Here is an annotated screenshot of us on line:
