Tonight


LISTEN TO ZEE RADI-YO

Hello Lovers,

I apologize to those of you who were gracious, kind, bored, darling-y enough to actually wait for our show last Friday. We didn't mean to stand you up. Anton and I were invited to a birthday party and ended up staying over at our friend's place. I was pooped. You know, our bodies can only take so much! -_-


And on a more serious note, a lot of nerve-wrecking things have been happening. (http://abcnews.go.com/US/wireStory?id=2432036) Do remember that unpopular.radio is a non-partisan collective. Opinions shared should not be connected to/related with unpopular.radio but to the individual who spoke his mind.

Ooh! And watch out for the new t-shirt design that a professional designer helped make for us! It kicks your pet monkey's ass >_<

Love,
xx

Trial Server

yes yes !!! tonight (at such short notice), we're doing a trial run of our new server...

showtime's from 9pm till 1130pm tonight

The Unpopular T-shirt (Once again)


Dearest Friends, Lovers, Ex-Lovers, Fuck Buddies and Flam0rz,

I'm afraid the time has come for us to charge for labor/material costs regarding the shirts. The server is dead and we need to rip a few more dollars off you guys so we can continue streaming. In other words, if you buy a shirt - you'd have paid for a fraction of Mish's breakfast (and lunch and dinner) as well as earned for yourself the title "Highly Esteemed Listener". In other words, all of us at unpopular.radio will become your personal slave monkeys. Benefits include Tan[g]kap doing all sorts of nasty things to you upon your command. (Or if you'd rather he get his devilishly handsome paws off you, he can do nasty things to your enemies upon your every command.)

Unlike before, we're collecting the orders prior to making the shirts so that it will be easier for us to manage. I am aware of the long wait you had to endure regarding previous orders but we promise that this time, since you'll being doing us the favor of buying our shirt to save and protect (the possibly-soon-to-be-legendary) unpopular.radio - we'll do everything in our power (including flight, telekinesis and bull-shittery) to make the whole t-shirt buying process quick and painless.

All shirts will be sold at $12 excluding postage. (Postage will more or less come to $1 for Singaporean buyers and slightly more for anyone in the US of A or Europe.)

All monetary figures are in Singapore Dollars.

$7 is the cost price (including labor).
$5 will go to the website/hosting plan.

Let us be organized with this then! Read the instructions and send in your "order slips" with the appropriate details/specifications to THIS e-mail address (unpopular.tshirts@gmail.com). Any e-mail sent to unpopular.culture@gmail.com regarding the t-shirts will be ignored.


Order Slip

Name:
Address:
Mode of Payment (choose the mode applicable to you): Cash (meet-up) / Money-transfer / Concealed Cash
Gender-size-style: Male size / Female size
Total # of shirts: ___ Male size(s) / ____ Female size(s)
Color: Black / White / (Custom)
Design #: 1 (Unpopular-head)





For now, we only have this design. As we come up with more designs etc., we'll add the design numbers in a catalog on the site.

And lastly, for those of us who have e-mailed us (at unpopular.culture@gmail.com) recently regarding the shirts, this is where you re-send us an e-mail with your order. Here, we'll cater to all inquiries regarding the shirt, that is, if there are any more.


Thanks again for all the support,
Catrina
c/o everyone @
unpopular.radio

Important Notice

dear friends, once again, we regret to inform you that our server is down. as many of you know, my cousin has generously provided us with free bandwidth for our radio to stream. he has shutdown his servers and streamlined his services. hence, he may not be able to host us.

not to worry, we're far from dead. we're in the process of aquiring a new server, which will be paid for. we have a 'financial plan' (no not in the capitalist sense). it is easy to find webhosting services in singapore, but few IT companies have the knowhow when it comes to internet music streams. such services are generally very costly in singapore, to say the least.

we intend to sell t-shirts to fund our new server deal. we only have one design at present but a few more are in the making. these Ts will sell at S$12 each (excluding postage). we'll be initiating a mass order soon, so we can get the sizes right. there will be more colours than before.

in the meantime, do check out the links on the right hand side of the page, and check this blog for more updates. we do hope to be up and running soon. thanks for all the support you have give us. we will sustain....

yours sustainedly,
Tan[g]kap Accent

Unpopular Goes Pop!

Yeah, that's right kids. I've added a few pop (and by pop I mean popular and I don't mean crap) songs to the mix because that comment in the tag about being indie made me giggle and add more fuel to my fiery love for popular music. Even if it was sarcastic, let's lighten up and let loose with Queen, Gnarls Barkley, Johnny Cash, Fiona Apple, The Strokes and loads more...

Have a happy Friday!
