It is shame that audio people mostly do not listen FM. If fact if I had a feeling that they do and if I know that they record live broadcasts then it might be possible to facilitate some kind of recording exchange service when “interesting” recordings of broadcast might circle among the participating parties…
Sure, we all have thousands recording of the greatest performance from past. I do not support the moronic believe of some people that great music is not being performed anymore: we juts do not hear to. Tuning to the live broadcast on FM (or perhaps in HD, but I know little about it) give a phenomenal opportunity to be exposed to very interesting, very educational and very mind-expending experiences... Frankly speaking, if I have a dozen participants in few main cultural center around the world, who record the local broadcast then I would grandly give up thousands of my records and CD because live FM delivers very different experience… Try to get it: it will be a new recording today, tomorrow, and then a day after and the next week… we juts do not need to accumulate recordings anymore (I practically stopped to buy CD/LP during the last year). We still could “buy” recordings but strictly for research purpose or to deepening our exposure to the things of interest….
Anyhow, I call anybody who might concern… let to swap. I have been doing rare swapping for years with “my people” but I would like to do it with excitedly FM “live” and “live-to-tape” broadcasts. In the “live” FM is where the Real music lives and… frankly speaking, “live” FM is much more interesting audio-wise… We have today in live broadcast of a memorial Leonard Bernstein concert from Cambridge. I would love to swap it to some kind of broadcast of memorial Toscanini concert off a local Rome FM station or a memorial Barbirolli concert off a local London FM station. Anyhow, if this idea gains some supporters then I would write a simple service to facilitate it.Rgs,
