November 5, 1999

  • Coelacanth on MP3 Radio Fri 11/05/99!!!Streaming from the Producers Web site. Here's how to listen:
  • This is an MP3 broadcast. It can be enjoyed over 28.8 kbps modems. The quality of the audio should be better than what you are accustomed to with RealAudio.
  • You will need an MP3 player capable of receiving streaming MP3 audio. The current version of WinAmp and MacAmp will do it. Here is where to get it:
  • You can join the broadcast using this link Coelacanth Radio Server (Choose the "Click here to listen" link). You can also join the broadcast from by searching for "producers" in their search engine - during the show.
  • You may want to visit ahead of time to see if you can receive one of these broadcasts. You may have to tell your browser how to handle the file/stream. Open it with WinAmp if it asks.
  • I don't believe you will be able to capture the songs to your hard drive in MP3 format. This is to our benefit since it probably makes it fully legal to broadcast it. (If you want to keep the tunes you'll have to plug your cassette deck into your sound card. Isn't that what you would do if it were a real radio broadcast?)
  • Please don't ask me for a copy of my source tunes. I am not permitted to copy Coelacanth ... and I don't copy stuff that was made available for retail. The 3 discs that were released are often available from
  • Yes! I'll run the Producers Radio Show again. I'll keep you posted via email and this web site.

Stay tuned for more great Producers stuff!

  • Welcome CNN visitors! Tim Smith was interviewed on CNN Interactive on 1/18/99. His role in Sheryl Crow's band has stepped up a notch. Not only is he playing shows with her, he played on her "Globe Sessions" CD. The reporter was savvy enough to dig up links to the Jellyfish, Umajets, and Producers sites. Congratulations on your contribution to Cheryl Crow's Grammy winning "Globe Sessions", Tim!!

  • The Producers site has moved to a new host!

    Farewell to CompuServe. CompuServe has served as the home to The Producers site for 2 years now. It never was an URL that you could remember. I hope this move doesn't cause any fans any problems. I am going to notify those that link to The Producers site of the new address - especially the UBL and 3Bells sites. Unfortunately, I don't think I am going to be able to get the CNN or 80s Server to change their links.

    I am going to discontinue my CompuServe accounts soon and I don't know how soon thereafter they will clean up the old website on

    The new site URL is: We have had a plan in the works for a few months that this site would become The Producers official site!! This is big news. The domain name has been reserved and activated, but I don't have the ability to update it. It was updated once with the Producers entry page. It is now out of date. It then links to individual pages in the site. These links will die soon.

    Eventually this site will move again to I will keep you informed of such a move on the site.
