DJSR Farewell Session (15th February 2005)

This was the day that the worst thing possible happened. News spread this day that one of our competitors, Rise FM, was being forced to shut down on short notice as a result of a copyright legal notice.

As I said before, the land of internet radio was still in its’ early stages at this point, and the legal ramifications of running a station and the implications of broadcasting the music hadn’t been fully explored. But nonetheless, since DJSR was a voluntary station, run by the ever-agreeable workaholic Carl Briggs for no return, the last thing we wanted was a lawsuit being shoved in our faces.

So what happened was, Carl decided that the station should close down whilst the details were ironed out and we explored what all the options were. So here we were on a Tuesday night and the servers were being taken offline from midnight, so everyone who’d been involved with the station over the previous year, all of us devastated by the news, we all got together online that evening for a session, where some of us played what we thought might be our final ever sets online for DJSR.

And this was my set, and it’s still one of my favourite short sets – extravagant in its’ cross-fading, fidgety on the mixer, I think the kind of frantic nature of the situation is transferred well! I do wish I had some of the other sets from this same night though, it was an altogether legendary evening considering I never left the house! 🙂
