I featured the 1984 collaborative single “Do They Know It’s Christmas?” by Band Aid. I then played tracks from famous artists who participated in this project. I’d like to thank fellow SDF member xmanmonk again for being my special co-host for this show.
“Band Aid is a charity supergroup featuring mainly British and Irish musicians and recording artists. It was founded in 1984 by Bob Geldof and Midge Ure to raise money for anti-famine efforts in Ethiopia by releasing the song “Do They Know It’s Christmas?” for the Christmas market that year. On 25 November 1984, the song was recorded at Sarm West Studios in Notting Hill, London, and was released in the UK on Monday December 3. The single surpassed the hopes of the producers to become the Christmas number one on that release. Three subsequent re-recordings of the song to raise further money for charity also topped the charts, first the Band Aid II version in 1989 and the Band Aid 20 version in 2004 and finally the Band Aid 30 version in 2014. The original was produced by Midge Ure. The 12” version was mixed by Trevor Horn.” (Wikipedia)

As a tradition in the Intergalactic Wasabi Mix – every last Wednesday of the month I invite fellow SDF member xmanmonk to be my co-host and invite a special guest. Today’s special guest was SDF member/anonradio.net fan ‘koenig’. I had a great time doing this show with these two great people. Thank you xmanmonk and koenig! You guys were awesome!! Thank you too to all the listeners and DAMGUD CYBERCHATTERS on ‘com’ and ‘irc’! There were hiccups in the beginning of the show (maybe something wrong with my Linphone audio setup or something else!) BUT I think we had a great time. Both guests picked awesome tunes to play too!! For more info about koenig, visit his homepage at koenig.sdf.org. Follow xmanmonk and koenig on Mastodon – mastodon.sdf.org/@koenig and mastodon.sdf.org/@xmanmonk.
koenig nominated SDF member christyotwisty as our next guest! Waiting for response from CoT! He he.

My guests on this show were fellow SDF members xmanmonk and ricardus. I asked them to pick their favourite 80s tunes and we played them during the live show. I picked the very first song. We did not have enough time to play all of them but I will be playing the rest on the next 80s synth and new wave night next Tuesday. I really had a great time with them on this show. Thank you xmanmonk and ricardus for the awesome show!
For this show, I used SDF VoIP’s call-out-to-the-PSTN feature to which I recently subscribed to. The subscription is really cheap/very affordable. USD 15 per quarter and you can get to call any numbers all over the world – unlimited! What more can I ask for?! It worked so well! I was very impressed with ricardus’ telephone sound quality – it was so clear! xmanmonk’s phone audio quality was good too but not as perfect as ricardus’.
I will be doing the same format again on the last Tuesday of December. It looks like I will be asking another really awesome SDF member koenig (picked by ricardus… haha) to be my next guest together with my regular guest/co-host xmanmonk.

What a very cool and down-to-earth guy! I have asked fellow SDF member xmanmonk to co-host with me for this special show and he did a really awesome job! Thank you so much xmanmonk!… and HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! 🙂 xmanmonk knows Tony personally.
I also would like to thank all the SDF members who were on ‘com’ in the ‘anonradio’ room for their participation during the live show. I am really so fortunate for being a part of this very awesome community!!… and of course, thank you to all the people who tuned in!
