“Wedding at Woolman Hill (7/29/06)” – recorded July 29, 20061:52:36 – 103.1 MB - StationUnlimited.com release #58 (August 14, 2006) – su-AFT-05_Wedding_at_WH-058

Recorded on Saturday, July 29, and Sunday, July 30, 2006. On this Audio Field Trip, my wife Denice and I travel from northern New Jersey to a wedding in western Massachusetts. Phil and Sarah, listeners to The Overnightscape, are getting married at a Quaker retreat called “Woolman Hill”. On this recording, you’ll hear about the long drive up, the creepy motel, arrival at the wedding, the wedding ceremony, walking through a cornfield the next day, visits to the Yankee Candle Flagship Store and the Hampshire Mall, and much more.

I recorded this Audio Field Trip on my Edirol R-1 digital recorder. Unfortunately, the Compact Flash card had gone faulty but I didn’t know about it. The total recording consists of 75 segments, totalling almost 2.5 hours. Unfortunately, 11 of the files were corrupt – so about 36 minutes of recordings were lost, all interspersed throughout. The lost segments include some commentary about the wedding, the night drive back to the motel, and an interview with Phil and Sarah.

This release consists of the raw unedited audio (minus the corrupt segments). It is a long, rambling piece of audio, and the “narrative” suffers a bit from the loss of some of the segments. But there is a lot of interesting and very varied stuff in this audio. Hopefully I’ll do an edited version at some point that will be an easier listen.

“Frank at the Apple Store Fifth Avenue Opening (5/19/06)” – recorded May 19, 20062:36:49 – 143.6 MB - StationUnlimited.com release #42 (May 20, 2006) – su-AFT-03-AppleStore5th-042

I went to check out the opening of the new Apple Store Fifth Avenue and I wound up recording over 2-and-a-half hours of audio! Instead of waiting weeks or months to edit it and play it on the show, I figured I’d release the raw audio right away for your listening pleasure… nothing edited (except a few phone numbers I had to bleep). Ben from CodedSignal.com pretty much became my co-host at one point. I met a bunch of other podcasters there – it was a lot of fun! (P.S. Gaurav got in at 9:50 PM.)

“The Lost Audio Field Trip (5/28/05)” – recorded May 28, 20032:04:33 – 114.3 MB - StationUnlimited.com release #11 (December 26, 2005) – su-AFT-02_The_Lost_AFT-011

This journey starts off with me and Peter Litkey driving to pick up his friend Brian. We then go to see Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith. Afterwards, we drive around very wealthy areas of New Jersey, visit Pete’s old school, and Pete’s car reaches 200,000 miles. Along the way we talk about many interesting things!

Recorded on May 28, 2005, I kept meaning to edit it and play it on the show, but I never got to it. So as time went on, it became known as “The Lost Audio Field Trip”. Now, it is released in all of its 2+ hour glory!

“The Audio Field Trip #1 (7/24/03)” – recorded July 24, 200358:57 – 54 MB - StationUnlimited.com release #10 (December 26, 2005) – su-AFT-01_AudioFldTrip1-010

“The Audio Field Trip” is a feature on The Overnightscape where I go out into the world and record various adventures and activities. Most of these are edited and played in their entirety on the show – but two of them are special cases. The first one is “The Audio Field Trip #1″, which I was only able to play a very little bit of on The Overnightscape #20 (7/24/03). This is the complete recording.

On this trip, I go on “The Iselin Run”, driving down to my storage unit in Iselin, NJ. This full audio was played for a while in 2003 on the Bluffcosm “live stream”, and was then released as one of the “Second Anniversary Bonus Releases” back on March 27, 2005. This release has much better audio quality.
