Bomb Shelter Radio - The Night Of The Deadly Bed

Author's note - I've taken to naming some of these articles with the titles of TV show episodes. This one is from the second episode of The Wild Wild West in 1965.

It has been a crunchy week, a lot of mental sand in the gears, and a lot of nerve-fraying news out there. Hopefully during the show tomorrow we will be able to relax a little bit and laugh at life's foibles. The Marvel Cinematic Universe and Big Bang Theory have reached major milestones, and I think we will skip conversation concerning that. Anyway, I ranted on BBT last week, so that would be a repeat... 

You did hear that rant last week?

If not, show archives will be up soon enough.

I hope you will join us this week. You can find the listen and slack links on our website at See you Thursday!

And now, your moment of WA?

"7-Eleven's Beer And Cider Delivery Service Is Launching In 18 Cities"

Con Amalgamated Beer from "Outland"

The article claims "This is life changing". WAAAAAA? HUH?

Having beer delivered by matter transmission is life changing, this is just passing the buck on how the beer gets to the bomb shelter. 

BTW, we have plenty of cans of chili here in the shelter, we just are missing a can opener.

Getting ready for our first show

Good day! Tomorrow at 8PM US/Eastern time is our first show of the new season. Here are a few reminders on things you should consider doing in preparation to enjoy the show. The primary place for station news, schedules and information is the website and the blog . During the show our listeners, DJs, and station administration folks gather in a "chat room" on slack. Join us on slack at . If you need at invite to the slack instance, click here . Make sure you have a music client that can read an Icecast mp3 stream (M3U filetype). The VLC Media Player is an excellent choice if you don't already have something installed. The server is located at . WinAmp and iTunes also work well.  We play the game Cthulhu Dice in the slack instance during most broadcasts. You can find the rules on the Stev

What will you use to listen to BSR?

So, in about seven days BSR will be back on the air. For some folks, connecting to BSR will be old hat. The server is in the same location it was during our last million broadcasts, and they already have a streaming application they are familiar with. For others, this may be a new experience (and if so, welcome aboard!) or they need a refresher. Rather than try a one size fits all tutorial just yet, I figured I would start with some basic questions. What listening tool would you like to use? (e.g. iTunes) What operating system are you on? (e.g. Windows) This will help us develop a few tutorials to get folks started. Please let us know in the comments. And now, your moment of zen… Cheers, Illya PS: In theory this should post automatically to the slack channel as well. It is interesting to see the difference between a tool that encourages collaboration (slack), and one that is a closed system (faces
