Now that Shouting Fire has launched, you'll get a weekly fix of ECC:  Every Thursday The ECC's TradeMark G. hosts The Sound Of Plaid, a two-hour show "putting the 'free' in free-form" music.  Tune in for the widest variety of music anywhere, with background and stories about why that music is important.  Also hear rare ECC tracks, new experiments, live performances, and more!

You can hear The Sound Of Plaid every Thursday three times a day: 10am, 2pm, and 6pm (Pacific Time).  Shouting Fire is on the air 24/7 -- tune in and listen!

    Those who've followed The ECC's Burning Man experiences for the past few years will recall The ECC's involvement with BMIR 94.5 FM, Burning Man's radio station.  The great times of broadcasting for that week in the desert are sullied by just one thing -- it's only for that one week.

    Well, we aren't the only ones: The rest of the BMIR staff felt the same way, so we've all done something about it.  And that something is Shouting Fire, a year-round internet radio station spun off and inspired by BMIR and Burning Man.  And it launches this Friday, February 29th 2008...


    To celebrate, we'll be broadcasting live from ECC Studios from about 4:30pm to 10pm Pacific Time (7:30p to 1am Eastern).  Tune in and join the celebration!  First 1,000 listeners get in free at:

For those that attend Burning Man every year, you might have noticed a familiar voice on the radio -- yes, "The Voice of The Man" on BMIR 94.5 FM is none other than The ECC's TradeMark G., who also ran the station last year.  BMIR combines a great collection of DJ talent, but unfortunately for only one week a year, and for a limited audience.  These limits irked the bright minds of BMIR, so -- surprise -- they decided to do something about it.

That "something" is now Shouting Fire, a new year-round 24/7 internet radio station.  Its launch date is February 29th 2008 (Leap Launch!) but as a teaser-test there's a handful of programs being aired daily.  Along with a one-hour program from TradeMark, there's an exclusive Abbie Hoffman interview and other shows airing twice daily.  Once Shouting Fire is launched, TradeMark G. will host a weekly show every Thursday.

Take a listen!

It is with great pleasure that I declare this new website of The ECC to be LIVE!

Yes, years past due, our old link-rotted web-barnacled home page has finally been retired.  No more yellow backgrounds, no more late-90's design sense, and yes we promise, no more auto-playing loops on our front page. The new website should accommodate a lot of web things that we'd wanted to do previously but were handcuffed by our outdated site.  Huzzah!

Now, we can let you hear our MP3s through on-screen players.  We can share unfinished projects and experimental ideas we're working on.  We can keep a show calendar that actually looks like a calendar.  You can search everything on the site easily through the search box in the upper right.  We have high hopes for the new site and plan to keep it buzzing with activity.

So, take a look around.  There's plenty of MP3s to listen to, videos to watch, a growing discography, and much more.  Enjoy, and keep visiting!
