2018 – In A (wal)Nutshell

Posted: 28th November 2018 by Dave in Chatter

2018 has been an interesting year for Nerd Show. Yes, the show goes on, and you can find us on Twitter and listen on Mixcloud. We traveled to China with SomaFM to take part in DEF CON China (Beta) and spent three days playing music for the nearly 2000 attendees. We spend hours at the […]

Nerd New Year 2015

Posted: 31st December 2015 by Dave in Chatter, Nerd New Year

This year SomaFM is hosting the Nerd New Year broadcast on DEF CON Radio. The 2015 edition, the eighth, is another 8-hour dive into some of the best artists, releases, and tracks of 2015, but is definitely far from comprehensive. With nearly 1400 top-ranked tracks during 2015, it was a bit of a task to […]

I’m not known to do this on an annual basis, but, what the heck. Here are the most influential albums on Nerd Show in 2014: Hail Mary Mallon – Bestiary The “other” dynamic hip-hop supergroup/duo to release an album this year (that we cared about). Bestiary takes Aesop Rock and Rob Sonic’s trip even further […]

Sennheiser HD 280 Pro Mobius cable upgrade by Zu Audio

Posted: 11th February 2014 by Dave in Chatter

As someone who has owned a set of Sennheiser HD 280 Pro Silver headphones for several years, I consider myself well qualified to review an upgrade as simple, but as potentially influential, as the replacement of all wiring within the headset, from the plug connectors to the drivers. This set in particular have been used […]

SomaFM and DEF CON 21

Posted: 9th July 2013 by Dave in Chatter

I’ve been an attendee of DEF CON, the annual hacking conference in Las Vegas, for 11 years now. The last two I’ve helped with music, performing in the Chill Out Room/Lounge, Pool Party, Wall of Sheep, and other venues, but this year it’s getting even more interesting. SomaFM is one of the long-standing bastions of […]

I’ve been a long-time user of djay for iPad by Algoriddim (app store link: here ) and one of its best features is the capability for split audio output. This lets the user play the music on the deck faded to (selected) while listening to/cueing/checking the other deck. The importance of this is great, as […]

No show on 05/17/12

Posted: 17th May 2012 by Dave in Chatter, Shows

I am taking a brief trip west this evening, so I will be unable to do the show. I wish I’d remembered this last week, but alas, here we are. Fear not, however, there are options! I’ve uploaded the last two Nerd Shows to Mixcloud and they are available, with other past shows and my […]
