Good news and bad news.

The bad news is that I was unable to record tonight's TUT and won't be able to record anything for a while.

The good news is that I have isolated the problem. It's to do with my recording computer's sound receiver input mic/line in/whatever.

This means that CD ripping is unaffected, and also that if I can get it fixed, then I probably will be able to record IP feeds from another computer in future. But it's a big if, given the age of this machine (yes I know, I should get a new one, I'm just a bit attached to it I guess, it's the one I've recorded all my songs on - which I won't be able to do either for some time).

Liam

Sun 14th Apr 2019 19:52

Thanks Noel.

What it is, is that my recording computer usually has one or two false starts when I start actually doing any radio/tape recording or ripping CD tracks these days. I've had this computer since 2004 and have gotten attached to it I guess, it's the computer I've used to record all my songs.

What I need to try tomorrow is starting the recording about 10-15min earlier that way it can get its malfunction out of the way and be restarted without hiccups in time to catch the episode in full.

In theory this should work. It usually has an equivalent hiccup when I back up my CDs as .wav files, and after a false start or two it generally settles down. The trouble here is the time factor, the radio broadcast is at a fixed point, as I can't connect it to my online computer.

This could be solved if I still had blank cassettes to record onto, but I think I threw them all out a few years back!

Noel

Sun 14th Apr 2019 19:18

Liam. I hope you manage to sort out your TUT recording problems. In the meantime, here's my own recording of last week's episode, if you'd like to add that to your archive

Liam
Sorry to hear about all the problems you are encountering. Once upon a time I had the same sort of problems when recording programmes, it was no end of hassle. Then I switched to simply downloading the programme from the BBC webpage and discovered this gave me a perfect copy every time. I expect you have already considered this, but is there some obstacle which prevents you just downloading with one of the many free downloaders? (e.g. Many YouTube Downloaders can do this)

Liam

Sun 14th Apr 2019 14:41

Well, I've freed up about an additional 30GB of space on the hard drive, and done all the usual checkdisk and defrag stuff, so I'll try with tomorrow's episode, plugged into the hi-fi as it doesn't seem to work connecting the two computers. If I'm still beset by problems then I may have to step down from my archiving. After over a decade of keeping this show fully archived for all, it'll feel weird.

Liam

Sun 14th Apr 2019 12:24

And I've just tried connecting the two computers and recording it that way, and it's not working. Odd, because it did work this way once before, about 4yrs ago when I recorded a Mitch Benn song. I wonder what I did differently? Or maybe that was my previous internet computer.

Liam

Sun 14th Apr 2019 12:17

My recording computer restarted itself again just as the episode was starting. I'm going to have to record it from the IP feed. Just my luck at the moment the website isn't responding. I'm annoyed. I've been keeping the TUT archive for over a decade now and taken the task very seriously throughout that time. The possibility of permanent disruption to this is not sitting well with me.

HarrySpeakup,

Thankss, much appreciated.

Tue 9th Apr 2019 08:36

I probably could try that. It would involve me having both my computers on at the same time, but it would be doable. I'll try the sunday repeat first, and if that doesn't work I'll switch my online computer on and plug it in. The hassle with doing it that way is that there are more ways for it to go wrong, albeit with more chances to correct it. I'll update you on sunday.

HarrySpeakup

Tue 9th Apr 2019 07:46

Liam, your work is appreciated in making sure we all have backup copies of TUT, but you seem to be making hard work for yourself, by recording them live. Can you not play a repeat on iPlayer, and record that, when it suits you?

Liam

Mon 8th Apr 2019 19:14

Both my computers misbehaved tonight, the online one causing a delay to my switching to my recording one, which consequently didn't have enough time to sort its "waking niggles" out. I had to restart it four times. I was able to get the last three lectures on TUT222, which was more than I was expecting. I'll grab the rest on the sunday repeat.

After years of listening (& abit of watching, but mainly listening) I finally got round to seeing Marc Maron live in Salford (not Manchester lol).
I was a tiny bit in awe, not starstruck, it's just that personal relationship you develope when listening to these podcasts and shows.
It felt quite surreal and wonderfully enjoyable.
Needless to say it was very funny, despite still being in a grump from his interview on Nihals 5Live Radio show earlier that day.

Thu 28th Mar 2019 14:58

OK, it now looks like I'll be getting the tapes for Ice Station Zebra soon too. That is one where we already have the "right" reading but the audio quality on the mp3s is slightly weak in parts, especially on sides 7-8 and 15 if memory serves. So this should be an opportunity to provide a better quality of source material.

Liam

Wed 27th Mar 2019 17:39

That's why I kept my phrasing general and didn't mention any character names (other than the regulars which isn't giving anything away anyway).

And so ends the latest Charles Paris mystery, Star Trap. They did tweak the ending slightly here. I know they've made changes to all of them to bring them up to date with modern times and get Frances and Morris in every episode, but they changed the guilty party's intentions rather drastically here. In the book murder was never on the cards (there's actually a few Simon Brett titles like that).

A very long shot but... does anyone here have episodes 4 and 5 of a podcast from the Today Programme about the Arctic, from the week before last?

I heard the first three episodes but for some unaccountable reason, I couldn't bring myself to listen to the Today Programme last week. The last two podcasts about the Arctic are no longer available, so I'd be most grateful to anyone who can give me them.

Liam

Mon 25th Mar 2019 19:16

And I've just noticed that The Unbelievable Truth is back next week already, just 2mths after the previous series finished. Then again, the previous series was a bit delayed, and this series is roughly where I would have been expecting it had that previous series been on time.

Golux

Sun 24th Mar 2019 16:33

Another 'long shot' request, one which I think I have posted here sometime ago -
Has anyone got a good clean copy of The Hudson & Pepperdine Show S02 E02 - one that does not have a gap at 15.30 minutes followed by muffled sound through to the end?

Liam

Sun 24th Mar 2019 08:03

The Way To Dusty Death is now available in my archive:

MF/folder/sr5qdx30pshi0/Alistair_MacLean

Given that every time I or anyone else on here has looked for an alternative reading of San Andreas, it's never pointed to anything that I would be able to instantly identify as "the right one" and has usually turned out to be "the wrong one" I guess I have no other choice.

That said, some of the other readings I downloaded from the original mixed set back in 2012 are a bit choppy in terms of audio quality. If anyone can find better quality recordings of:

HMS Ulysses (read by Peter Joyce)
Ice Station Zebra (read by Steve Hodson)

That would be appreciated. There may be one or two others where the sound quality gets a bit iffy. I know the copy I have of Puppet On A Chain (read by Francis Matthews) is missing a bit at the end of side 4, albeit only about a line.

I also have a few "variant MacLean" titles, other writers using ideas of his. The UNACO books by Alastair MacNeill (well, some of them), the additional Navarone sequels by Sam Llewellyn. I might as well put them up at some point I guess.

Golux

Sat 23rd Mar 2019 21:43

That's great news Liam, after all these years you must be well chuffed. So have you given up trying to find an alternative to Alistair Maydon's reading of San Andreas?

OK, I have just spent the day recording The Way To Dusty Death onto computer. I'll upload it to my archive tomorrow. At last, a full set of these audio readings!

I have found as near a complete set of I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue here:

https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0B1rnk_m1sMYXNnZLWnEtMFhmeE0

I had long ago given up recording this show because I thought nothing like completeness could be achieved. I would make do with the few recordings I had and some CDs that I bought at a church fete.

The usually excellent epguides.com have lost the plot on this one for the last few years. I haveput their list on my word processor and updated it from the download files.

Unfortunately, the download goes only as far as series 67. Could anyone share Series 68-70? If I am lucky enough to receive them from some kind person I'll update the episode list and make it available on this site.

Thanks
