Just a suggestion - those who feel so inclined, contact the 'Rock Talk' hosts and express your thoughts, excitement, appreciation, etc. Perhaps they could be convinced to have Gord on again sometime in the near future. They have a comments page just for such a purpose below.

Thanks for the welcome. While I'm new to this group, I am a long time member of the Gord Newsgroup. Too bad its mostly spam nowadays. This looks like an excellent replacement.

Many of you probably have some of the videos I recorded off of my satellite dish years back from Canadian stations. The Juno Awards, Governor's Awards, Gzowski Interview, New Years Eve 1999, House of Blues Special, Alan Thicke interview, and others. I have them on video tapes but will have to convert them to DVD so they last a long time :-)

Regarding the interview, if you have a digital recording, I can convert the file to MP3 for all to share.

Anyway, glad to be here and meeting some old friends again. Hopefully Derek, Doug, Shirley, and the rest of the old gang are here as well.

1) you can use windows (or apple) recording software to capture the stream as a wave file. most soundcards come with recording software.

2) then you use a program like dbpoweramp to convert it to mp3.

3) then you can use a file sharing site like www.yousendit.com or www.sendspace.com to upload it on the internet for the rest of us

Joveski:

I have replay radio on my computer that does a super job of recording off of my sound card. Unfortunately I missed the program and can't record it after the fact :-)

Wow Dave Voeltz himself!! .
I remember reading some of your postings when I first started reading the Newsgroup regularly back in 1997.
As you pointed out the once almighty and vibrant Newsgroup has slid inexorably towards oblivion , since very few even
bother to post there anymore except cretins. I am just a tad surprised that it has taken you 8 years to find corfid though!!
because Florian did announce its creation on the Newsgroup back in 1999. See:-
http://groups.google.com/group/alt.m...e24483fcb705c3
doing a search within the alt.music.lightfoot newsgroup now on your surname reveals 102 postings, however the most recent was way back in 2002 when you replied to a Minnesotan thread started by John Wicklund aka Seafarer62 at:-
http://groups.google.com/group/alt.m...e24483fcb705c3
so you have not helped keep the NG going very much!!
and many from 1997/8/9 refer to your generous and much appreciated disemination of rare videos. good on yer!!
Yes we have a few of yours here courtesy of I believe Yuri.
I was particularly interested to see that you used to use a stereo Betamax.Do you still have it??? I have a pair of commercial stereo Betamax tapes
one by Stevie Nicks

scan of front cover as previously displayed by me in a great corfid thread at:-
http://www.corfid.com/vbb/showthread...ighlight=nicks
the other is the Mac's Mirage tour but I have only ever had (as now) a mono Betamax recorder . I would therefore ask you to digitise them for me one day. but you would be of no help as my two tapes are in PAL format . Oh well nice thought or could you extract the stereo sound track regardless?? Probably not because as well as the incompatible colour coding method a PAL tape would only play back at a speed and/or different frame rate and my mono and PAL Betamax is of course unable to output a stereo sound signal
By the way John got here before you and posts here as surprise surprise, seafarer62
of the others you mentioned Doug Kirk posts here regularly as "doug", as occasionally does Anne Aspry (now in OK member name here "anneOK"),and the "Grande Dame" Shirley Hoggard also from OK of course is registered here and is now 70 see:-
http://www.corfid.com/vbb/member.php?u=14920
but has yet to post anything on corfid perhaps you could send her a private message and get her to write something here
I once got into trouble on the newsgroup trying to persuade young Kidd to come here and try to display a picture , infra dig on the non binary newgroup of course and I know Ed Mullen keeps away now from both the NG and corfid. Others here from the NG here include our most charmant Moderator personage CHar and Jenney and Tim Quinn.I am sure we all extend a very warm welcome to you Dave and look forwards to seeing much posting from you in future. There are some great personalities here and new fans appear every week so don't feel too bad that you have only just "got it", what kept you so long??? Better late than never eh?

I had hoped that Gord's interview would be online by now but no its not (yet)
Perhaps CHar could contact her mate (Greg) at CFRB to try to get Gord's interview included on
http://www.cfrb.com/node/563961
I see the following luminaries are there now:-
Sylvia Tyson
Roger McGuinn (The Byrds)
Micky Dolenz (The Monkees)

Denny Doherty ( Mama's and Papa's)
Stewart Copeland (The Police)
Ronnie Hawkins
Geoff Kulawick (Linus Entertainment)
I expect that Gord was asked if they could archive it but in the absence of Barry Gord probably said (as ever too modestly),. "no nobody will will want to hear that"!!
We managed to catch the 1AM repeat I and noted a caller named "Ray" from somewhere in the Tronno area who spouted on about a song he had composed called "lightfootin'."
This was undoubtedly one of the extremely rare non spam posters on the stoopid Yahoo fan club group Ray Murray his lyrics only are at:-

I turned on a tape recorder for the 1 AM repeat, but the thing jammed for about 10 minutes at the 40-50 minute mark. I can make available what I have on MP3 or WMA, but if someone has the complete show, that would be better.

I have the complete show and dave is converting it to MP3..I will e-mail only and not post here or any site as it is property of CFRB and Lightfoot and I would appreciate others to respect that fact..

I collected my 'prize pack' today at CFRB. It was a lovely day in Toronto - grey and overcast but no wind and quite mild. The streets were brown and gritty and Yonge st. was a-bustling with Christmas shoppers from St.Clair all the way to the Eaton Centre at Shuter where the House of Gord (Massey Hall) is located. Lisa and I ate in a window booth at FRAN'S which is across the street from Massey and watched the folks walking by.
The Prize pack had: Harmony (not signed since Gord didn't make it to the studio) he owes me one!
Murray Mclauhclan - double cd -Best of - songs from the street.
Dala CD (autographed) - two young ladies who have performed in the Lightfoot trib.shows at Hugh's Room and will again in January.
Greg Godovitz autographed cd - host of the Rock Talks show on CFRB and founder of rock group "Goddo"
Goddo LIVE dvd- autographed, march 1979 first CHUM/CITY TV simulcast on TV concert.
STYX DVD- may 2006 concert with Cleveland contemporaty youth orchestra.
STYX - unauthorized true story of Styx book. autographed by author.
blair packham cd - autographed
glenn reid CD - autographed- co-host of Rock Talks on CFRB, plus a deck of long oval playing cards..
Lisa and I walked down a couple of blocks to 1365 Yonge and the EMP office but no one was home..

The tree had thousands of crystals on it..it was absolutely mesmerizing to watch while it slowly rotated.
Colin James was at Massey last night doing a XMAS show. We contemplated going but were pretty pooped out from our busy day with all the other Christmas crazies..

good luck with the conversion project, the thing could be condensed in length but all need to hear Burton's segment, lol

you'd think i was all digital but i still am Analogue Jim whenever possible...I captured it pretty much in "Fowles capturing Face of Thousand People" fashion ie) just old audio recorder capturing AM transistor via household air ...am doing same now with Fan590

I realize John was a reel to reel guy but in the end, same crackly quality...but good enough...we're all staying tuned, thanks all for effort and once again for the original headsup
