If you had a cool enough radio station, and advertised it enough, you might capture a small audience. In Denver a few years ago, I remember hearing about an alternative radio station that was 'really cool', playing a lot of modern 'hipster' rock. It was AM. I could never get it to come in, unfortunately. The buzz must've done some good, because after awhile I started seeing stickers on cars advertising the station and so on. I guess it's possible. Still, I reckon you would need a lot of start up investment.

Both dogs were alive in mid-1971.
"Surf's Up" pictures, right?

I'll be at the Starbucks 1/2 block west of the theatre at 7:15 if any of you coming want to meet. I'll be with my wife and brother. I'll wear a 25th anniv BB badge. Look for people who loosely resemble Mike Meros, Dianne Keaton, and an aging jason Lee.
Who can I look forward to meeting?
PM with personal message, your real name, or a cell # if you want....might make meeting easier

Three new Really Really Weird remixes came in this week: Dav, Satan's Little Sister, and EarLabsSolo sent in their submissions. (For some reason, Dav's remix shows up as the last song on the MySpace player. I don't know why.)
Here's the link again...

Quote from: Steve Mayo
they announced they were flying in from ga. but i see they played in ga after the charleston show.
They were probably staying in Georgia and commuting to Charleston. Back in the '80s and early '90s, the BBs brought their families on tour with them and would base out of a major city in the area they were playing, flying to nearby towns to play. In the meatime, the equipment and the road crew went by truck and bus. The guitars flew with the band.

For the last couple of years, I've been thinking about starting a radio station. There are basically two alternatives:
First is a low-powered FM station (LPFM). The FCC does have a lot of conditions which makes it difficult to get a license. You have to form a company, be non-profit, have a mission statement, board of directors, and, hardest of all, there has to be a frequency/channel available in your area. You have to hire an engineer to do a survey; it's very costly, and it's not certain the engineer will find a frequency.
The second alternative is a low powered AM station (LPAM). This is much easier to accomplish. You aren't licensed by the FCC, but there are some conditions to adhere to. You don't have to be non-profit, a frequency is easy to find/get, and it's a lot cheaper to start and maintain than an FM station.
Here's the drawback(s). Yes, it's AM radio. The sound obviously is not as good as FM. Also, for a LPAM station, the antenna/transmitter only puts out a signal that travels bout 1-2 miles. That doesn't cover much area. Now, you can install as many antennas around town as you wish, at a cost of about $1,000 per unit. And lastly, does anybody listen to AM anymore; will they FIND me on the AM band?
Actually, I am leaning toward the AM station. You can buy the equipment, install it, and be on the air in a month. It's more of a "hobby" thing, and it would be a "community" station, but many LPAM stations around the country state that they do make money, obviously selling ads at a very inexpensive rate. Also, you can put your station on the internet, and everyone around the country can listen to your station. I have a large finished basement and could put a nice studio down there.
What do you guys think? Any feedback is appreciated. Thanks.

Mr. Boyd, saw this on the Shut Down board re: the Roxy show - "I can't begin to describe how good it was. Hearing Carl's vocal parts isolated on songs such as 'Til I Die was pure heaven."
What other songs did you isolate Carl's vocal on?
And is it possible to isolate the other vocals on Til I Die?
I imagined they were recorded together. Something like that - four or however many versions of Til I Die featuring just the vocals by each individual Beach Boy would make for very interesting listening on the next archival release.
By the time they went to 8 and even more so 16-track, most of the time the lead vocal, and it's double it it had one, got its own track, so one could theoretically isolate almost any post 1968-69 lead vocal. But they persisted in doing a lot of BG vocals together on the same track to the last days.
I've been pushing and hoping for weird releases like that, but it will not happen, unequivocally, it won't happen.
And it would never be enough, anyway. Once you get a taste of "pure heaven" you can never have enough. O, that we could hear the intimate glory of any vocal or instrumental part we'd like, but unless the almighty becomes the next CEO of EMI...
I really think the best hope for anything like this would be for the Beach Boys to do a promo iTunes release of discrete tracks from one song. Radiohead have had much success releasing individual parts for fans to remix, for a contest.
To promote the next Singles box, or the next commemorative Pet Sounds re-release (as those seem the most likely next releases) EMI should put up all 16-tracks (or 8 or even 4) to download, let fans remix them, and have Brian pick a winner or something.
If it was to promote Pet Sounds, release the multis of, say, Wouldn't It Be Nice. That would be, essentially 10 tracks, 3 instrumental and 7 vocal.
So not only would EMI get the hardcore fans excited, you'd also bring in non-fans, hip-hop producers who enjoy remixing.
That would be my plan.

maybe this has been discussed before, but once the Beach Boys started to mix there albums in stereo would brian have a mono mix made for himself. and if so would there be mono mixes even of his recent solo albums?
