Leader of the popcorn pack and now he's gone
Laser radio, the internet station with the motto past, present and future, will not air live radio shows anymore in the (near ?) future. Besides other nice programs we will miss every first saturday of the month the great rock'n'roll show by Gudo Leuvens and the one and only Popcorn show by Theo Dumoulin .......
I announced for a long time my Blog quitting if there wasn't going to be a significant upgrade in comments by different people compared to the number of visitors and more important compared to the number of music downloads.
Next week some statistics........

Laser radio ('past, present and future') live is gone.... ??
We will have to wait what their future will bring.
Leader of the 'Popcorn' pack and now he's gone.... ??
Of course I am not the leader of the 'popcorn' pack. Far from that. I still consider myself a rookie. A lot of others know so much more about this (Belgium originated) musical genre. They also have a far bigger collection, far better in style quality and a more costly ... They could tell (...) so much.....
Visit these 2 great Belgium Popcorn site's with a lot of background info and the weekly party calender : Popcornoldies.com and Popcornoldies.be !
But I think I have succeeded in promoting Popcorn for over more than 2 years to a more worldwide audience looking at the number of downloads of those articles....
Last month I've had an offer to post some articles about Popcorn history. We'll see.
I've written about 2 (new) Blogs concerning Popcorn also : The world of Binky Spoons and Rotterdamrebels. Ehhhh, have you ever visited the Oldies-research-center ? And yesterday a new star in the Popcorn sky can be seen at BoUmBoUm.
Folks, all I can say comment, comment over there !!!!
This last article and download isn't Popcorn but I thought, because of those last 2 songs, it's a nice ending. Past, present and future.......
Comment section is still there...
You're right, the time went by quickly ;-)
jamesy (can't get blogger identity to work)
Best wishes for the new year.
you have ben a superb ambassador for a wonderful array of music not just the popcorn I thank you most sincerely for ALL the superb songs youve featured,,,,,,,,, magical !!!!
It will be a MUCH MUCH duller place without you.
A big thank you
ps.: just after looking some time I found that you don't have to put and url in order to have a name. x-x ... And I know some ppl like to see their comments just right after they write them.
Mary Weiss is my sixties queen...
About the compilation, I wonder about "Footstep on a roof" that does not appear on the great compilation (that was supposed to be definitive...)
"Myrmidon of melodrama". I've heard this song on an other website and it seems to be a "gluing" work made from other songs of the Shangri-Las. Is someone has an explanation about this ?
Whatever, thanks again Jean.
'Clickable' links are for you downloaders soooo convienent but the disadvantage is they don't seem to 'last' long.
The Blogger gets a lot of comments 'please re-up'...... Other, more appropriate/interesting comments, they sadly don't get... :(
So you will have to do a little work to get the link.
This seems, in my opinion, the best deal between 'protecting' my links and the least effort for you.
NEW LINK :
Of course you understand to replace in r#pidsh#re twice the # in an a otherwise you don't have a 'valid' link !!
Paste this valid link in your browser-url and hit RETURN. You can also copy/paste the link into your 'downloadmanager'.
Well, that wasn't difficult, was it ? Now your download takes some time.
Think about the efforts/time a good Blogger (I hope I am) spends to compile a nice offer, uploading it to a server, making a background article.
For this one I needed one hour....
Shouldn't you, while simply waiting for the download to finish, give some remarks why you picked this particular 'share' ?
Of course you should and you will if you are just a littlebit grateful.
Same goes for what you what you get from other Bloggers !!
Pass to extract the file : 100303
The file is a small 50MB, 'cause the songs are only in very low bitrate 128kbits.
Please donnut give a nasty comment about that : check 'My opinion about bitrates' on 2008_jan_25.
The next depends, amongst other things, on your security options in your browser and by so the ability to copy/paste the link.
When you see this in Google or Yahoo cache or by my Blog's search function read first the RED instructions at the top left of my Blog !
Direct link (after that go to the plain comment of this 2008_december article !) : JeansMusicBlog
Also possible : just click the 'post a comment' section here and you are able to copy/paste !
....And while you are there you might as well give a comment yourself....
