Six and a half hours of monitoring 2GB’s webstream has paid off. I’ve captured their daylight saving reminder!
I really like the way this makes use of Telstra’s talking clock. It’s a clever bit of work, and I’d like to congratulate whomever at 2GB’s is responsible for it. Nice job!
Incidentally the hiss at the start is the final syllable of the midnight weather. I couldn’t separate it from the bit I wanted.
It seems that the talking clock and ways that I spend my time are the subjects of the day, so for those of you who are wondering…I had been listening to Jason Morrison’s show since a bit before 4pm and it was a bit after 5pm when I first heard the daylight saving reminder (albeit the generic version and not the Saturday version which you hear above) and it was at that point that I decided to start the recorder to capture the reminder the next time it aired. I was listening to 2GB programming for most of that time anyway…and the bits that I missed I was able to check over with the recording, so it’s not as if I was sitting here anxiously waiting for it to air again. In fact I had just set up the overnight recording and was about to go to bed when I heard this go to air. I suppose it amounts to the same thing though.
Anyway, I must be off. I have to be up early for AIR News’ morning sport reports, and would like to get some sleep before then. Good night.
