This week, we pushed a minor update to the station. As it is right now, the station runs a set of song previews every couple of hours as part of our on-air branding. The process for setting up which songs can be previewed is manual, and we spent a little time this week adding more songs to the list. We also have a pending backlog to filter into the rotation from C99, with the latest music from Reitaisai 19 still too new to add in (this will become available on November 8th).
Our latest music review from DMJ654 looks at “HIStory Begins” from Hatsunetsumiko’s. This album is unique in that it’s a sort of rehash of existing songs, all featuring one of our reviewer’s favorite vocalists, Ark Brown. The interesting thing about having someone review a work with a vocalist they enjoy listening to is that they’ll tend to be more critical about it. To learn more about DMJ’s process and evaluation, you can read the review and respond over on our forums.

Finally, we’ve got a couple events scheduled: Live #119 on August 20th, and Meetup #15 on August 21st. That’s right, it’s another double-event weekend due to our staff having packed schedules this month. Events are scheduled up on Discord, and you can get notified when they’re happening by clicking on the “Interested” button next to each event. Next month should cool down a little bit… I’m looking forward to it.
Don’t forget, you can nab the Listener role and badge on our Discord server for free, and our lossless streaming service is currently available to Indigo subscribers. More information is available on our website.
That’s all for this week, come back next time when we’re not totally swamped with research and reports for things unrelated to the station, and thanks for listening!
