Really?  Diet Coke.  C'mon man.  ;D

I've since poured a scotch to calm down from the ... rousing.

I love the opening to the reading of his own book. Absolutely classic.

You need Adobe Audition, yeah you can use the same track for various takes.  Oh so once you stop recording on a track, that's it?  I've never used sawplus32 but do you remember the old Acid Pro?  That was my first music recording software I tried.  I love Adobe Audition.

Acid pro was the last program I used at home. Years ago.
Big jump from the pro tools of today. Any recommendations for a simple home recording program? I'll dig out my old fostex 4 track recorder for shits and giggles every now and again.

Interesting how Art can read copy and make it sound conversational.


He just always talked that way.  I mean you're one of the few people who knows what he talked like in the privacy of his own home but you can hear in all of Art's recordings that he always talks in exactly the same way.
It became obvious to me in the 90's when he would read commercials in the same way he chatted about his cats and Ramona.

One could take from this that a recipe for success in talk is to become accustomed to speaking in your natural voice, cadence and tones no matter if you are reading, reciting, or anything else.  Of course if you don't have a naturally pleasing voice it doesn't matter how fake or real you come off to the listener.

lol... i listen to prog rock and i listen to a lot of unknown bands i want to hear more of your work
You might like the "other" SAGA covers and stuff also. Just saying.  ;) Cover of "If This Is How It Ends..." is haunting.

I'm not sure I understand the question, but I never did try Acid Pro.

I became familiar with SawPlus32 at my first radio gig in 1997 when I was 17.  I liked it, so I simply continued using it.  I haven't found anything I want to do that it can't do.

He approached it as if he was just doing another night of C2CAM.

I think I remember him playing part a good portion of this recording once long ago during a show, or as a show, or as a replacement when he was out for some reason.

I was thinking you meant with SawPlus32 once you stopped recording a particular track, you couldn't queue up that same track and resume so it makes you use another track for a vocal (not harmony).  hence you had to use a lot of individual tracks.

Way to fuck your (few) remaining subscribers raw.

Next time I'll just go to a bathhouse in San Francisco....it will be more pleasant (and frankly, understandable).

Might humbly suggest you first ask advice of expert Aldous?

That should have been something on the Art Bell webpage (with slow downloading at the old modem speeds) introducing some guests about little people, gnomes, elves, nisse, brownies, etc!

Classic Bell.  Wow...that takes me back

You will note that many current guests in the genre he, basically, created still use Hotdog html, geocities-style pages, and etc!? It is awesome, that they do so. A tribute to him. Even C2C with Norry redesigned several times to make it a harder site to deal with, depending on platform and black backgrounds.  ;D

I think this is a pretty cool thing to hear. It's available elsewhere, but my guess is that most of the listeners don't realize that. It's an attempt.

The thing that bugs this old timer when people say "Geocities style" is that it really is just HTML 1.0 and occasionally 2.0 that people make that association with.  It was not Geocities style it was the most current HTML
tech of the day.  Calling it "Geocities style" furthers the misconception that the internet has always been centralized to a few sites and servers like it is so much today.  I think people started to refer to it thusly because a lot of Geocities sites continued to remain online for a few years after HTML 3, 4, etc had been developed.

Art Bell's websites were not "cutting edge" but they were on the high end of average for their time.  The fact that he had one at all with the amount of content on it that he had was unusual in that day for a nationally syndicated show.

Yah. But it was such a "thing" and recognized, so a laugh. Sorry. So what is the latest version of Hotdog do you use?

Saga does rule.



Yeah, Saga's a pretty solid band.  If you add in time recording Sadler for things beyond Saga, I probably logged (at least) a couple hundred studio hours with him.  There were some solo items, some vocal "fixes" that needed to be re-recorded for a live Saga DVD set, etc.  I'm most proud of the work we did for a French prog-rock band on an album that, years later, still hasn't been released.  He and two other "guest" vocalists recorded four tracks each on that one.

Lots of people like Audacity.
