Happy New Year! If you’re in the Southern hemisphere I hope all your Summer has been hot, sparkly and rad. If you’re in the North I wish you all the traditional white, chill vibes you get this time of year.
Starlifter Radio had one of it’s biggest years ever in 2012. We had live fortnightly radio shows from Blue & Green with Shaun Parker, Hottest Whatever, Human Pleasure with Bill, Aqua Oyster Cult, Islands and myself with Mixtape 3051. We also snuck in a few live event broadcasts from Delicious Dose and Fran’s Birthday Party 😉 Thank-you so much to all who were involved and had so fun with us. I’d also like to personally like to thank Fran, Lu, Rob, David, Bill, Shaun, Greg, Mishka, Markj, Tom Cosm, Ez, Muz, Antz and my darling panda wife Claire.
I don’t think we’ve ever had that many live broadcasts on Starlifter in a single year before and it was bloody marvelous. Alas such a pace can be hard to maintain and in 2013 there will be less live radio shows. Starlifter is steering it’s bow from tuneage to tech. 2012 was a big year for Starlifter in the realm of geek. I’ve discovered the PirateBox, the Raspberry Pi, Minecraft as well as a deeper love for GNU/Linux and the free and open source movement. So although there will be plenty of tunes on the dirty ‘ole ‘lifter be expecting some fantastic tech and tings from Starlifter Digital.
I’ll leave you with this from the original uber Tech Lord Carl Sagan:
“If you want to make an apple pie from scratch, you must first create the universe.”
