News From You

R&D Mag has a writeup on a new material that may be as promising as graphene: black arsenic phosphorous. Chemists at the Technical University Munich have developed a semiconducting material which replaces individual phosphorous atoms with arsenic. Colleagues in the US atUSC and Yale built the first field-effect transistors from the material. The material can detect long wavelength radiation like LiDAR and can be peeled off in ultrathin layers. So it would be possible to a put a black ARSENIC phosphorous semiconductor in old lace. (That ones for all you Joseph Kesselring/semiconductor fans)

Pick of the Day

Listening to show #2533 w/JRY the topic was how "curated play lists are back" prompting this message to promote my favorite online radio station

The station is a real FM station (103.8) in Istanbul, Constantinople, Istanbul playing electronic music ranging from quality electronic music to avant garde to mainstream syndicated programs. In the wee hours, local Istanbul time, the legacy station gets weird and you will hear Ornette Coleman via crazy jazz programs or possibly space music.

Did I mention that they now run several online channels for different electronic music verticals?

I have been listening to since their inception and always return after my current music service runs stale, as is the case with Rhapsody, Pandora, Spotify, Grooveshark, and my own music collection.

The ads, should you catch any, are all in Turkish and are not distracting to me at all, unlike American FM radio ear cancer advertisements. Could be a language thing...

They have phone apps too!

So if you are a fan of electronic music, especially European curation of indie and mainstream sounds, this is a go-to station.

Thanks for the show - keep up the work. My credit card info is up to date.
