Circle Research 2006-03-08 Sets 1-4


The rapidshare link on this page is ancient, and therefore dead. If you want any of these sets, mail me at fm416.mailbox at gmail and I’ll be happy to repost it when I can. Be sure to tell me which one!

I discovered Circle Research scanning the airwaves for something to listen to after Classick Material was cancelled, and it’s a good thing I found it. Here you will hear the real oldies, the dusty records, obscure old-school hip hop and the like. It is my new favourite show. Circle Research is Astro the Guillotine, Nix the Finger Prince, Big Tweeze. They just recently reached their 8th(!) year of broadcast. You can catch them Wednesdays 2-4AM Toronto time on CKLN-FM, Ryerson college radio.

When I lost all of my Circle Research recordings from the summer of 2005 in a hard drive crash, I was quite upset. One mix in particular I had played dozens of times, 70s disco-funk-roller-boogie and very early 80’s hip hop. Here’s something in that spirit from last week – the hip hop anyway:

    It’s hard to tell when this show ends and the next one begins, so I got a bit of the next show “Tecktonics” I think. There were a bunch of problems with this recording and somehow whole segments, 5 mins or more, got cut out. You can hear how abruptly set4 starts and erraticly cuts out and is suddenly a different program entirely.

  2. you have a great weblog right here! do you want to have request posts on my blog?

  3. hello there and thank you for your information – I have certainly picked up something new from right here. I did however expertise some technical issues using this site, since I experienced to reload the site many times previous to I could get it to load properly. I had been wondering if your web hosting is OK? Not that I am complaining, but slow loading instances times will very frequently affect your placement in google and could damage your high quality score if advertising and marketing with Adwords. Anyway I am adding this RSS to my email and can look out for much more of your respective exciting content. Make sure you update this again soon..
