Our 2nd anniversary is coming up

Hard to believe it — we’ve been at it for almost 2 years. That’s a lotta spins. Japan is now our second largest audience, right after the USA. Who woulda thought? So stay tuned for even better mixes on CCC.

Psapp - Hot New Duo from UK We’ve just added some new tunes, including “Everybody Wants to be a Cat” by Psapp (pictured at the left), a new duo from the UK. They have a new video out that you can check out here. BTW, when you click on the link, I found that it only plays when I right click and select “open in external application.” Go figure.

YouTube, too?

YouTube is my favorite new online community sandbox because people are uploading an awesome variety of great stuff, including old videos from bands you may have forgotten and some you wish you had. Fun to watch. Today, though, I bumped into a documentary by moebius32 on the "Amen Break." I hadn't heard of the Amen Break before. But it turns out I (and you) have heard it many times and probably didn't know it. Check this out. Highly educational. A little long, but stick with it.

Chakra Chip Cookies station logo

The talented air personalities of Chakra Chip Cookies Totally forgot to upload the logo for all to see (if you haven’t logged onto the station before or recently). Needs some work, maybe. Any suggestions?

frappr

Frappr I don’t know how to get this onto my blog other than to post it in a message like this, but maybe wordpress will see fit to let us bloggers to add frappr to the widget list. It’s a very cool way for all of us Chakra Chip Cookies listeners to show where we are on the globe. Here’s what I’d like to add:

I tried to add the above code with the html editor provided by wordpress, but nothing showed when I published. Oh well, guess it doesn’t work. Please, WordPress, add frappr to the widget list.

last.fm

Thanks for the hedzup comment, Ms Grammarnerd. If you can believe it, I completely forgot that I signed up for last.fm as tomdijon way back in July. I've got it on right now and it's fun to plug in all my favorite artists and see what stations come up. I don't know if chakra chip cookies playlists can be exported to last.fm or not. Gotta research that one. Stay tuned.

Playlists, playlists…

The folllowing isn't an exact playlist, but it includes a bunch of tunes that I've added to the daily playlists in the last month or so. I haven't figured out a convenient way to create a list from the actual daily playlist because live365.com's management software sucks. It doesn't allow me to capture the list or export it or anything else. Obviously they don't give a shit. Or maybe I'm just not smart enough to figure out a simple way to grab the info.
