http://synthetic.org With a nice sunny weekend and Mothers Day behind us I can get this weeks RSA finished, and a decent start on next weeks show so that I can get a show out to everyone in spite of the upcoming long weekend.

http://synthetic.org There's been a lot of great new music released very recently, enough so that I may lock myself in my studio and do a couple of shows so that when I go away for the Victoria Day weekend I still have a show to post. Of course, with the weather finally turning nice up here in the Great White North is might be a good idea to get a little ahead of myself anyhow.

http://synthetic.org Woke up this morning to wet snow on the ground, so I abandoned all pretense of cycling this weekend. But the rest of the week looks nice and warm. But with the bike back on the wall I decided that rather than waste money on computer gear I don't need, I'd finish RSA and at least brighten your weekend up a bit!

http://synthetic.org A week later and the historic ice storm is now history. Spring has finally arrived in Canada, which means that the shows will more likely be posted on Mondays again.

OK, I'm getting very tired of having to just look at my Merckx hanging on my wall instead of riding it on the weekends. But now we get to deal with a "historic" ice storm here in Toronto. Part of the reason I'm making sure that RSA is done and posted is because we're supposed to get high winds this afternoon which will undoubtedly knock out our power. So I hope you're warm and ice free wherever you are!

Another dammed weekend of sub zero temperatures means that I'm once again not getting on the bike to ride off some pounds. Instead I'm going to eat fried chicken after I'm done posting RSA for the week. Thats close though right? I'll still lose calories mixing music, right? No. Damn. Oh well, at least we've got some great new music this week including a very special promo!

Its still not exactly warm up here in Canada yet, so I decided that since this is a short week (I get Easter Monday off) that I'd just take a few vacation days and make it a round week off. This should mean that I have more time to get RSA posted and notifications sent out, but I think I'm not making allowances for sleeping in and video games. But this is what you're supposed to do when you don't go to work...

At this time of year I start getting really impatient about getting back on the bike and losing all of my free time to getting rid of the winter weight. While this hasn't happened yet, we're solidly on the summer schedule where shows get posted on a monday morning, and the RSS feeds get updated later on in the day. But never fear, no matter when the show is posted, we have great new stuff for everyone!

Welcome to the final show of the 2018 membership drive! This was supposed to be a live, streamed show on Facebook, and that did happen. However I forgot to hit the "record" button and simply streamed it. Then Facebook copyright scripts decided that I couldn't play SD-KRTR, and would I like to delete the video or claim ownership? Well Simon, you win this round! So I re-created the show and here we are!

RSA 20th anniversary spectacular
"It was twenty years ago today Sgt. Pepper taught the band to play" - The Beatles In January of 1998 I sat down with a dilemma. I was a club DJ who had a lot of great music to play, but couldn't experiment *too much* in the club. For some reason I wanted to be a radio DJ, and breaking in to the college radio clique wasn't going to happen. So I experimented with creating a "radio show" within my computer and set up a web site to stream it. On Jan 31 1998 the first episode of RSA went online. It was terrible of course, but through experience I got better. I was incredibly proud when we hit our first anniversary and had artists such as Jarkko Tuohimaa (Neuroactive) and Alexander Hofman (S.P.O.C.K) record congratulatory greetings. I had no idea that I'd be still doing it 20 years later. There are far too many people to thank individually for the support, technical assistance, and listener-ship that has happened over this time. But know this. If you're reading this now, you're a huge part of why I've been successful at this. To celebrate this, I present to you a short video that will hopefully entertain you and convey how I feel today. https://youtu.be/vqwCSFcF5vY I would also like to present a special guest show that one of our longest listeners, Wolf of Ultimas Lagrimas, a german radio show, who creates music as 'Electric Toys' has done for us. While I can't promise another 20 years (I'll be 65 then!) I can promise that there is no end in sight for RSA, and I look forward to badly mispronouncing German words, saying "Anyways", and creating the best shows I can. Thank you.
