out, way out




Testing my ability to embed a podbean player. These are 3 classic reggae tracks. The first is the Inspirations. I'm saving it for the duck playlist. The second and third are Sir Lord Comic. I love him, but can't find too much by him out there. The Great Wuga Wuga is one of my all time favs. As he says at the end...Out, way out.

Aha, thank you goneforeign, this edit feature will come in very handy, methinks. Well, the songs are playing now, so... The first two are by Sir Lord Comic. I love what I have by him, but I can't find much. I particularly love the first song--The Great Wuga Wuga. As he says at the end, Out, way Out. The third song is by the Inspirations, it's about an old duck, and I'm saving it for the much-anticipated RR duck playlist.

Damn, it didn't post what I wrote and the songs aren't on the player. Back to the drawing board. You can erase this, if you have the time, Blimpy. Sorry again.

Steenbeck: I discovered the way to delete. It's under the new post box, 'return to list of posts' click that and you get an editable list.

Wait--don't erase it...it's playing now. The first two songs are by Sir Lord Comic. I particularly love the first...The Great Wuga Wuga. As he says at the end, Out, Way Out. The last is by the inspirations, it's called Take Back Your Duck. I'm saving it for the duck playlist...

Steenbeck, you can enter the track names on the Podbean player- at the point after you choose the multi-track player and enter the URLs, there is space to the left for track names. I think if you edit your playlist and add track names they ought to show up subsequently on the blog.

Lovely tunes...I can't get podbean working for me...it said 'copy and paste this code to download the player' but it didn't. Also, how do you get the song on to the player?

Treefrogdemon..
1, upload a few MP3s to Podbean. 2, create a playlist,
3,you should get the choice of single or multiple players in grey or black.
4, Choose a player and you then get a menu with drop downs to add your MP3s to the playlist, you need to write the titles in on the left hand side.
5, When you complete this process, Podbean will print a box with a long HTML code, which you need to copy and paste into your blog entry at the "HTML" tab.

This ought to make the podbean player show in your blogpost preview.

Steenbeck et al: I just heard a radio documentary about 'doctors without borders', it involves a group in the Niger delta and was very interesting. I thought of you when Fela's name and music came up because it's about the social situations from where his music sprang. It's being repeated this Saturday [17th] at 1pm [pacific time] at kqed.org, worth a listen if you have the time.

Goneforeign, sounds fascinating. I have long admired Doctors Without BOrders. I wish I was that brave and had a skill that was actually useful to people. And of course I'd like to learn whatever there is to know about Fela. I'll check our local NPR listings. Thanks.

Treefrogdemon--the part that tripped me up for a while was what Ejaydee mentioned above--it seems to only work for mp3s--I thought I'd uploaded an m4a, and it showed up on the computer, but wasn't accessible for playlists. As soon as I converted it to mp3 format, and uploaded again, everything fell into place.
