WOW!

It all started when I went looking in Steve Gillette and Cindy Mangsen's website for a tune. There, I found a clickable link to hear and see them in concert at the Kennedy Center! I have seen them-- they're GREAT-- so off I went!

TRY THIS!

So then I went on over to the Kennedy Center and found MORE online concerts!

Yup, you can become a FREE Kennedy Center E-Patron. Here's the FAQs.

Folk stuff seems centered on their MILLENIUM STAGE-- "Free Performances Every Day, No Tickets Required, Performance Time: 6 p.m. Eastern."

JULY AND AUGUST EVENTS

I still don't quite "get" how it all works but I am joining up for a free membership and I will keep you posted!

Don't forget to search and review the 234 Folk, Acoustic, Blues concerts using the archive search function! (And more each week it looks like from the schedule.) It comes up only five concerts at a time-- I am going to e-mail them and request a full list of that genre's archives to post here. If I get it I will post it here in the thread, and then after that date try to keep the list of folk events current.

If you register to be an E-Patron, look out for error messages once you enter your info, that are not actually errors. It kept telling me that usernames and e-mail addy's I offered were already taken and/or that e-mails had already been sent to me giving me the sign-in info and to use that-- so now I have four memberships! Wait for your e-mail if you get one of these error messages before trying another registration entry-- chances are it took you the first time.

We watched half of two different items last night-- a rockin' gospel concert and a classical violin-piano duo. The latter had been billed as jazz and were not (because one them also does appear in other Millenium Stage concerts in jazz bands), but it was worth watching anyhow.

The video quality is better than Mudcat Radio in terms of set quality and fixed camera mounts, lighting and all that, but they look like they have been shot with much the same technology-- remember the older Radio shows where the people jumped around like a slide show? The older concerts are like that and the newer ones are like the much-smoother Radio shows now.

The sound was pretty good, not as good as archived proferssional radio or a CD but pretty good-- certainly better than PalTalk. It will depend on your system's sound, too, of course.

In terms of concert quality, I think it will vary. The violin-piano duo were really GOOD. The gospel choir was OK but the soloist wasn't half as good as most non-gigging Mudcatters I have heard. (So Mudcat could take over the Millenium Stage!)

Because of the video quality we found it best to watch it one of two ways-- if you are at the keyboard, watch it small for increased clarity. Or else make it full screen and pull up a recliner at your usual TV-viewing distance.

We both enjoyed it a lot but we had a good laugh over trying to learn bowing refinements from a slide show. *G*

I tell you what, they got more acoustic stuff on the Millenium Stage than you can shake a stick dulcimer at.

The real fun is innocently grouped under "Country/Bluegrass."

... which actually includes, as it turns out, 87 Bluegrass, Cajun, Clogging, Native American, Comedy, Cowboy, Celtic Funk, Country, or Rockabilly Concerts...

How can you resist a group with a name like Dang Varmints?

The Millenium Stage must have a bookings manager from Mudcat is all I can figure.

Help Pene! or anyone who knows the answer to my question...

It seems when I listen to some archived programs on the 'net and also some radio stations, there is so much buffering (interruptions) that it almost impossible to enjoy any kind of continuity. I don't have buffering on the Mudcat live radio broadcasts or on PalTalk. As a matter of fact, on PalTalk I seem to have one of the faster connections considering my time of applause, etc. Is there a way I can listen to an archived program without these interruptions? It seems to me that I should be able to download the entire program and then play it off my computer. Why does it seem to depend on a connection???????

Mary, sometimes you can download the files, but usually they are protected to prevent downloading. I tried a trick to download one of these, but it didn't work. Maybe someone has a trickier trick, though. Even if you can manage to download them, these files are quite large, sometimes hundreds of megs.

Here is what they say (HERE)at RealPlayer's FAQ:

Why is RealPlayer 8 Basic still rebuffering or giving poor playback from many sites? Packet loss occurs when information is unable to successfully travel from one server to another. Previous RealPlayers have interpreted lost information as rebuffering, hissing, crackles, and skips. RealSystem G2 (and RealSystem 8) is designed to minimize the effects of packet loss.

In RealSystem G2 (and RealSystem 8), RealProducer is used to encode RealMedia into streams of varying bandwidths. When RealPlayer 8 connects to a RealServer serving the variable bandwidth content, the server detects your Internet connection speed and sends the best stream possible for that connection. As the quality of your Internet connection changes due to packet loss, RealServer switches to a lower bandwidth stream. This causes a difference in the audio quality, but eliminates the rebuffering, hissing, crackles, and skips. When the quality of your Internet connection improves, RealServer switches back to the higher bandwidth stream. The switching is instantaneous so that there are no breaks in playback.

However, at sites where the content is not encoded using RealSystem G2 (or RealSystem 8), RealPlayer 8 will still rebuffer, hiss, or skip when the connection becomes too thin to consistently support the stream. This is expected behavior.

To minimize poor playback from those sites not using RealSystem G2 (or RealSystem 8), try playing the content during times when Internet traffic is not at its peak. U.S. business hours and weekend evenings are peak times. Connections and playback will be better at other hours.

Back at RealPlayer, it seems (I could be undcerstanding it wrong) that only Real Player PLUS will allow saves, and only if the site produicing the material has saved it with that option.

Here is an excerpt of the article I found by searching:

How do I save RealAudio or RealMedia files to my computer to listen to them later with RealPlayer?

This article applies to:

-RealPlayer G2

-RealPlayer 7

-RealPlayer 8

The RealAudio (.ra) and RealMedia (.rm) file formats are designed to distribute high quality presentations while protecting the copyrights of the content providers. The content provider may choose to let you download the file to your computer instead of streaming it, or let you record the file as it streams to your computer.

If the Web site is linked directly to the RealAudio or RealMedia files, you may be able to save the file directly from your Web browser. If the provider enabled that option when the content was created, you may be able to record the audio from the file with RealPlayer Plus.

Saving or recording RealAudio or RealMedia files may violate the copyrights of the content providers. The organization serving the content may not want to or cannot lawfully allow audio or video files to be recorded. If you do not know if the organization intended the content to be saved or recorded you should contact the Webmaster of the site hosting the content.

Note: There is currently no way to save RealAudio or RealMedia presentations that are embedded in Web pages.

The trick is to save the target of the link, which is usually a .ram file, a small file that points to the large .rm file(s). The make a link to the .rm file listed in the .ram file and save it as an .html file. Then open that file and save the target of the link (to the .rm file).

Mary, I use Total Recorder to record RealAudio programs when I want to save them. The technique could also work for you even if you didn't want to save them but just wanted to hear the concert uninterrupted. When Total Recorder is recording in software mode (the mode needed for recording streaming audio), recording stops when the audio stream stops then automatically resumes when the stream starts again. Sometimes you get a little 'blip' in your recording at that point, but it's not nearly as annoying as the program starting and stopping, often for long periods.

Total Recorder is found here:

It doesn't work for the links above, and rarely works at all these days. You're probably better off with a program like the one Ivan suggested if your connection will get you through the whole show.

Save the target of the link (In IE Windows, right-click on it and click "Save Target As" Choose a handy destination like your desktop.

If the file you saved has the extension ".ram" open that file in a text editor (like Notepad).

You'll see one or more URLs listed there. Copy the URL from the .ram file and make a link (blue clicky) out of it in a new text editor (Notepad) window. Save this file with the extension .html to your desktop. For example, you could call it test.html.

Open that html file, then save the target of the link you made (In IE Windows, right-click on it and click "Save Target As").

In the rare case where this will work, it will start to save the large .rm file.

Wow! So... REASONABLE! (Go Ivan!)

I think I will download the free version first and see how it works-- 40 seconds' recording time is all it allows.

Giggling uncontrollably here. That Total Producer is a VERY NIFTY little program! "TP" is not however a good enough name!

So I'm sitting here trying to understand the instructions, then I remmeber it's Ivan who has recommended it-- I begin to suspect he's found such a gem it will surely almost run itself. (That "intuitive" design thing.)

Sure enough. I open up a Millneium Stage concert and get it going, then open the Total Producer box and find the Play/Record menu (I think that was it) and hit RECORD. An indicator starts whirling--- 30 seconds later I stop the concert, stop the Total Producer, and hit PLAY.

And there it is!

Susan, don't waste CD space with wave files recorded off the web with Total Recorder. Their quality isn't usually good enough to rate that. Instead reencode them in MP3, for an 80-90% reduction in file size, depending on the quality you choose. I generally use 160 bit encoding for stuff I get directly from FM, 128 bits for webcasts. The program I use for encoding is:

Simple MP3 Maker

It's free, and, although it's slow, does a wonderful job. It's the only encoder I've used that doesn't leave me with pops or dropouts (assuming they weren't there in the wave file to begin with). I usually set it up to encode overnight while I'm not using the computer.

Refreshing this one.... these on line concerts are great. There is discussion in the thread about downloading the files so they can be viewed without interuption, but the discussion is kind of old... I'm wondering if someone now has more info about getting these files onto a hard drive?

WoodSongs Video Webcast (archive menu)
Live, Mondays at 6:55-8:15pm EST

Every Monday night, musical history is made as the WoodSongs Old-time Radio Hour begins its radio broadcast. Because it's more than just a radio show. WoodSongs is also the world first multi-camera, weekly series broadcast on the Internet.

Online viewers worldwide can watch the behind-the-scenes production heard by over 900,000 radio listeners on over 400 radio stations each week.

7:00PM Watch the 60 minute show live as it happens
8:03PM Join the audience as they record this week's promo
8:05PM Enjoy the encore performances not heard on radio

WoodSongs is cybercast in real time with four camera shots cyber-cast on two separate "streams," giving web users two choices:

DIAL UP: One for web users with a dial-up or 56k modem;

HIGH SPEED: A second full color audio/video stream (300k) for users on broadband, DSL or T1 lines.

Each show is later archived on line for 24/7 viewing in various media formats and can be downloaded.


You will find all categories of folk music there, including people for folk-purists.
