    Nice to see on Twitter that the mix CDs live on.... .

    "A day of palpable excitement at @ASCL_UK HQ today: the unleashing of my summer music CD ???? https://t.co/OeSJeLgsJT. "

    Jingles included I hope!

    And I thought it was going to be something about the lack of Jingles on BBC Local Radio or something........ :-)

    click on the link-player comes up but controls are faded & cannot access content--Windows 7/Home Premium OS (64 bit)--Mozilla Firefox Browser 54.01 (64 bit)--any ideas?
  • nleibonleibo August 25
    P.S. Browser is Opera 46.0 NOT Mozilla/Firefox. When I try to click on the link in Mozilla Firefox Browser 54.01 (64 bit) , I get a "Video Format or MME Type Not Supported" when i click on the link--Windows 7/Home Premium (64 bit)----any ideas?
  • Neil, it would be somewhat ironic if you're maybe getting geo-blocked in some way by a UK site,
    instead of what we experience from over here trying to access USA audio etc :^)

    Are you referring to the Summer Mix 2017 Taster?
    Incidentally, the file in not an mp3 audio file. It's actually an m4a audio file.
    Download it (right-click>Save as), change the file extension from mp3 to m4a, then play it with Quick Time or VLC player.

    Or: I've re-encoded it to mp3 (link below). After downloading, enter the password when prompted during extraction:

    Password: 9TyUATqBv0gyUNBUdK9n

    Another error:
    The link in jonno's post - https://t.co/OeSJeLgsJT. - is incorrect.
    It should be: https://t.co/OeSJeLgsJT
  • "actually an m4a audio file"

    My mistook!
    I remember Geoff saying in the past he did things on a sooper-dooper Mac rather than an "IBM-compatible"

    My second thought was that they had at last got a proper controller for BBC Radio Two!
    God they have sunk to new depths for Steve Wright cover this week........
