Can You Dig It? (the original call sign)

January 23 marks the day in 2011 when a blog post from Grant Potter announced ds106 Radio. I hope people who have been part of the community before, or just have been a listener, or just want to be near something cool, spend some time tomorrow celebrating this birthday. I’m not going to be explaining all about our internet based free form wide open manager-less radio station — see

I made the image above as one of the pre-cursor bits, today’s Daily Create was to make a birthday card.. I will tip the hat that tomorrow’s is to post an audio birthday greeting to SoundCloud.

There are not choreographed organized plans tomorrow, it’s just another day at the station. I did change the programming to be all day, from midnight PST (3 hours form now) to play for 24 hours a random mix of archival ds106 related content… I am way over due on writing up how to do this since we made some changes (another post “coming soon”) (I’ve written that before).

But let’s not rely on the pre-programmed stuff. If you are equipped to do live broadcasts, please step in sometime tomorrow (the PROTOCOL is to put out a stream request to twitter with the hash tag, or just try and grab the mic). Share your favorite memory, or just do something like Bryan Jackson and Leslie Lindalle have already done this evening, sing some songs. Tell some jokes. Perform a scene from a movie. Or just talk.

But if you have had any experience, encounter, exposure to ds106 radio in the last 3 years, please give it some love back tomorrow.

At least tune in —

He thinks it's weird to write about himself in the third person. And he is 100% into the Fediverse (or tells himself so) Tooting as
