Mika – Grace Kelly

“You only want what everybody else says you should want” – my sentiments exactly.

There aren’t many people in the world who could pull off an act like this.

Last Day of Radio Friendly

Radio Friendly Cork Logo

The pinnacle of the happier days of pirate radio in Cork was probably Radio Friendly, which is now, sadly, completely gone (I had to dig in the Internet Archive to even find the logo).

Thankfully though, I have come by some recordings of its last day on air (18th December 2003). You can listen to everything we have here, or you can download the individual mp3s from here (credit for these few recordings goes to hans).

If anyone has anything else, please get in contact with me. :)

Installing ices (Icecast streamer) on Ubuntu

Ices is the mp3 version of the command line streamer from It’s like sc_trans for shoutcast, but alot better. Because of the mp3 stuff, it’s not distributed as a .deb anywhere (if anyone does find a .deb, please let me know), so it has to be built from source.

It’s all relatively straightforward though:

  1. First install the Mediabuntu repository.
    wget -q -O - | sudo apt-key add -
    sudo wget -O /etc/apt/sources.list.d/medibuntu.list
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get -y upgrade
  2. Next install some headers (we need these to be able to build it) …
    sudo aptitude install libshout3-dev liblame-dev libxml-dev
  3. (Optional) Perl support in ices is useful, for this we’ll need libperl-dev
    sudo aptitude install libperl-dev
  4. Download and build the source …
    tar -zxf ices-0.4.tar.gz
    cd ices-0.4
    ./configure --with-lame
    sudo make install
