Thank you!    Maybe he will appear on BBC1 Breakfast too - two for the price of one!   ;)  They are both from the same building I presume?     :think

No. BBC Radio is from London whereas BBC Breakfast is broadcast from Media City in Manchester.

Of course!   :smack    Thanks for correcting me, Geordie_60!   I should have remembered that it moved to Salford!   ::)

Yes, it comes out as a constant bitrate .m4a (iTunes) stream, around 130 kbps I think, so somewhere around CD quality.
Title: Re: Mark Knopfler On BBC Radio 2 20/03/15
Post by: Adz on March 17, 2015, 02:53:11 pm
And that is the stream as broadcast. Most stream rippers dont rip the source, they just copy what is streamed, and convert that to .mp3 / .m4a / whatever.

Amazing. Chris Evans was the darling of Britpop 20 years ago and wouldn't have played MK in a million years.

I'm sure the Beryl single will be played during the interview and then maybe a couple or so 'unplugged' tunes in the studio - of course I may be wrong?!

He talked a couple of weeks ago about DS, and that he listened to them on cassette the other day and it still sounded fantastic.  He also talked about MKs amazing house on the south coast being close to another member of DS, his moral to the story was learn to play guitar kids.

Post by: Mark Heritage on March 20, 2015, 12:35:27 pm
It was a shame Mark was on with two other musicians. Beryl isn't new any more, it's been out since January and played every day. Would have been nice to hear an accoustic performance of one of the other songs from Tracker, as that is partly the reason Mark was on the show as he has a new record out; it would have given the listener who hasn't bought the album (yet) another song to hear.
Title: Re: Mark Knopfler On BBC Radio 2 20/03/15
Post by: jbaent on March 20, 2015, 12:38:49 pm
Just MK being interviewed without anyone else, and playing a couple of songs in acoustic would had been perfect.

This was a waste of a chance, but better than nothing.

Folks, you can listen to the whole show - albeit lossy - again at http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b055dz8g

The CE breakfast show is some kind of a "loud" wake-up show. I guess MK will guest in a more music-related show on the beep soon.

I thought it was okay.  He may have resorted to the stand-in stories but he sounded far more relaxed than usual.  Sounded like they were having fun in the studio.  He always gets uptight and nervous on a one to one interview.

I know this versions since 25 years as the single version.

I know there is some confusion about some alternate and single and other versions, Ingo has a long page about it.

I heard no difference to the single version?  That one with Eastbound Train live on the b-side?

That's the one yes. Is it the same version as on the Honky Tonk demo's? http://vk.com/markknopfler (http://vk.com/markknopfler) has listed this same version as Honky Tonk demo

Chris asked him on the radio if would come on the show!  Obviously it was pre-arranged but I wish he'd asked Mark too. And Lulu!  Err...  ;)

Niles track sound's - *rap to be honest.... Not a marvellous guitarist either...

Disagree strongly. Nile Rodgers is a great guitar player,  perhaps not as great as MK but every bit as distinctive.

Personally I loved the show, thought the mutual respect between MK and Nile Rodgers was great, good fun them playing together.

But Lulu was a pain in the arse.

After that interview I realised again how funny is that 95% of the people sees Mark as a 'virtuoso of a guitar' and nobody, even when Lulu said she's brother is a brilliant songwriter, asked Mark about art where he actually can be called real virtuoso. Mark fooled everybody again! :lol

That was what made him quite unique, both a very talented songwriter and a guitar hero.

I was quite astonished that MK thinks about "downsizing" his collection of classic cars. And it was quite funny for me when he said something like you find yourself owning a van and several flightcases....

Me too!    Surely he could find room for them at his huge country house!    :think

I recorded the streaming live as well, obviously with lower quality, but I was so dissapointed that I just saved it and didnt worked on the file yet. If your file is better quality it would be great to have it well recorded.

Gracias amigo!

So does iplayer enable us to download audio clips?  I'd love to download all these BBC interviews Mark recently did, even in lossy format and quality.  Better than nothing.

Wishes
