The local band shows up now and then during the winter...Gary, Lloyd, and Stu...and Jonathan Livingston Penguin. One night the recording team from DRØNK Recording Studios showed up and here is what happened...live!mp3 file (recommended) (2:33, 2mb), streaming RealAudio version, or downloadable file (315 kb) (Warning! Contains actual uncensored South Pole language! Cover your children's ears! Cover your ears too, because I kept the volume up so you could hear the rest of the conversations from the audience...)
Little did we know that someday there would be an "environmental protocol" to the treaty and all the stuff would get loaded on 130's to send north!! I understand that in some of the recent years the tractors have come into the dome all winter to deal with the recycling bins!!Here I am in my toaster, er, the station manager's office, the corner one with windows. I had a safe full of store money to watch, but the folks at CAF had a much better view! Based on the calendar this is some time in October. In heavy rotation on the box, the stuff I brought with me included Gordon Lightfoot, Tom Rush, Peter, Paul and Mary, Eagles, Bob Dylan, Judy Collins, and John Denver (sorry Gary). The stack on the table behind me looks like copied stuff. Many of us shared and copied tapes--John had an extensive collection including lots of Grateful Dead along with Dan Fogelberg and early obscure Fleetwood Mac. Their mega hit album "Fleetwood Mac" was released shortly before our winter and they became superstars unbeknownst to us. As a result they did a world tour and Lloyd acquired tickets for several of us to an outdoor concert in Auckland in November. Out of the 60,000+ in the audience in the hot sun we were the only ones with long sleeves and hats to protect our pale pole skin..
