Happy New Technical Fault!


The first edition of The Sunday Alternative of the new year kicked off in pretty typical Trent Sound style, with my music not being in the studio system. I contacted the controller who said that he would update the system when he got home and do it remotely. The songs hadn't left the shared Dropbox folder, so even refreshing the system was hopeless. To get around this, we did the first forty minutes of the show by finding our chosen tracks on Youtube, which was a bodge of a solution but at least helped to tide us over.
