Tim McTaggart / DJ Programmer
Tim McTaggart shows
Tim, a recently retired IT systems professional, is an accomplished musician and sound technician, and enjoys DJing as well. He has had a decided interest in radio broadcasting through the years too. A major motivator was the soulless corporate behemoth that FM radio had become.
Being very much a tinkerer with electronics, Tim began to soup up a part 15 FM transmitter, and finally got his lone voice crying in the wilderness on the air. He then upgraded to a real LPFM transmitter and continued to pollute the San Angelo, Texas airwaves on various Friday nights for several years to come. The self described ‘Eclectic Mess’ was born during that time. (The ‘all new…kinda sorta’ designation was since added, with apologies to the now defunct https://krud.com .)
In 2012 Tim made his virgin trip to Burning Man. As with many first timers it was a mind blowing experience. High on his agenda was to check out BMIR where he met Bobzilla, who was already considering making BMIR a year round internet radio station. Tim has been back to the playa a few times now when the ticket gods deem it worthy and makes sure that he participates with BMIR in some ‘kinda sorta’ capacity.
With some modifications Tim has kept much of his old pirate radio show’s zaniness, odd wisdom, technical glitches, sporadic speaking skills, and songs you may have heard at the grocery store. He is honored and excited to be a part of the realization of Bobzilla’s dream and hopes to continue to be a ‘kinda sorta’ worthy contributor to Shouting Fire.
Tim is the host of the All New Alternate Wednesdays With Tim….Kinda Sorta, which is in fact on alternating Wednesdays. His E-mail is tsmt01 [at] wcc.net
