VCR-wave (Episode 2019-22)

June 1, 2019 Uncategorized

We know that it’s a challenge to wait by your radio every week to press the ‘record’ and ‘play’ buttons on your cassette recorder at the beginning of Cafe Chill. Plus, most modern cassette tapes are only 30 minutes per side, which makes for that awkward flipping of the tape at the 30-minute mark. We have a new solution for you:

Record Cafe Chill to videotape! Use the ‘aux-out’ jacks from your AM/FM boombox, and run a cable to the ‘aux-in’ jacks on your VCR. Plus, you can use your timer, and record up to 2 hours on SP speed, and 6 hours on EP speed.

When you listen back, plug the audio-out of the VCR directly into your Hi-Fi stereo (don’t worry about the video or tuning your TV to channel 3 or 4). With technology quickly evolving, we’re right there with you, and we feel this solution will work for you in the long term.

On this week’s episode, we’re featuring music from Cosmic Quest & Smokestacks with Virginia Palms, Bad Snacks, Yumi And The Weather and more. Check us out on your local public radio station!

Printed Circuit Boards and Cafe Chill

May 24, 2019 Uncategorized

Cafe Chill was originally developed as a line of Printed Circuit Boards to electrically connect components that were soldered to it. After a sensational commercial failure in the late 1980’s, the product was relaunched as a public radio program in 2015.

On the current edition of Cafe Chill, we’re featuring tracks from Télépopmusik, Bad Snacks, Hello Meteor and more.

We’ve also doubled our ROM to 8 KB and included ANSI Minimal BASIC on our new fully-loaded PCB release. You should now be able to use Cafe Chill for practical programming and calculations. Please refer to the manual for installation and use.

Listen on your local public radio station.

Beyond acoustic coupling

May 18, 2019 Uncategorized

This week’s edition of Cafe Chill is designed to work with 8-bit ASCII terminals at a faster rate than the acoustic coupling you’re accustomed to. This episode will be less sensitive to external noise, because we feel we’ve become a 1983 film prop that accentuates the act of using radio waves for interconnection.

Music from Thrupence, Yu-Utsu, Tekvision and more this week. On your local public radio émetteur.
