More Memories of the BUD

The BUD brought me so many memories in the world of TV and imagination

G 3 Channel 19 -  Nickelodeon

In 1990, I watched Nickelodeon all the time.  This was my favorite TV channel on the satellite dish.  Nickelodeon was the first kids channel that played cartoons, kids related game shows like Nick Arcade, Get the Picture, Family Double Dare, and GUTS.

Early one morning, I turned on the TV and tuned in and discovered this outer space TV show called Launch Box.

Space Camp



In the fall of 1991, I saw a TV show in Friday morning at 5:30 AM entitled Launch Box.  This TV Show was syndicated as a Cable in the classroom show. School teachers were permitted to tape the show and screen it in the classrooms.  When I saw it for the first time, I discovered the US Space Camp.  When I was a child, I wanted to take a trip to Space Camp.  




The picture above was seen in Volume 33 (February, 1992) of Nintendo Power Magazine, the Players Poll Contest grand prize was a trip to the US Space Camp and a shuttle launch.  After finding this picture, I was Inspired to creatre a pretend play game entitled Space Camp.  My Space Suit was a winter coat, the space shuttle was my bed. the bedroom was the first incarnation of the space station.  Enjoy the short inspirational video about going to outer space without leaving your home.


In March of 1992, I went to Universal Studios Orlando and toured Nickelodeon Studios and took a road trip to the Kennedy Space Centre.

Electronic Music Memories from the Late 1990's

In the mid 1990's I fell in love with electronic music like trance, speed garage, and other music that has a good beat.

Rare Dance Music Tracks I only heard on the radio only once or twice.  I had these tracks on tape.  Some of the tapes have been eaten up by the cassette player.  This is a listing of my favorite tracks with a vocal Time Stretch effect.

Here are some tracks you may recognize or not

1997/98

Rip Groove -- Double 99, 1997.  I taped this track from Hits 103.5 during a Live to Air broadcast in December 1997.

The Chant W E R -- R.I.P. Productions (1998) I taped this track off the Chris Sheppard Radio show in the spring of 1998.  This track sounds similar to Rip Groove.

I Can't Help Myself -- Lucid, 1997.  I taped this track off the Chris Sheppard Radio Show in the spring of 1998.  This is the only trance track I heard with a freaky vocal time stretch effect

Insomnia (Armand Van Helden's Mission To Mars Mix), 1997. I heard this version of Insomnia on the radio during the 9 o Clock Hard Drive mix back in the spring of 1997. 


Choose Life (JDS Vocal Remix), 1997 -- PF Project. I heard this song in December 1997 on hits 103.5 during a live to air at Paparazzi Nightclub.  The tape that had this song on it was eaten up by the tape player.

The Horns of Jericho (Porn Kings Full On Remix) - DJ Supreme, I taped this track off the Chris Sheppard Radio Show in the spring of 1998.

Kickin Hard -- Klubheads, 1998. I recorded this song on multiple tapes from the Chris Sheppard Radio Show in the fall of 1998.  I heard this song for the first time at in the summer of 1998 at ACSTC Blackdown.

Meet Her At The Love Parade (Dextrous Mix) (1997) -- Da Hool. I have multiple copies of this track.  This track was taped from the Chris sheppard Pirate Radio Show in the spring of 1998.

Something is Going On (Loop Da Loop Uptown Mix) -- Todd Terry, 1997.  I taped this track off the Live to Air on Hits 103.5 or the Chris Sheppard Radio Show in the winter or spring of 1998. Also listen to the Loop Da Loop Downtown Mix.

You're A Superstar - The Dogwhistle Soundsystem,remix, 1998 -- Love Inc.  This track was taped off the Chris Shepard Pirate Radio show on Hits 103.5 FM in the spring of 1998.

Memories of the Innisdale Dance a Thon



During the United Way Week, Innisdale Student's Council held a Dance A Thon in the school cafeteria.  I attended the 1999 and 2000 Dance a thon.  After midnight, some songs were played twice due to requests at the booth.  This was my first all night dance experience.  I attended the 1999 and 2000 Dance a thons.  Students had to raise 20 bucks each for United Way by collecting pledges in their neighbourhood.  I raised a lot of funds for this event both years I attended the Dance a Thon.  The Dance a Thon started at 7 PM and went till 7 AM, the next morning.


The DJ Company was called Sights and Sounds.  Their setup included two large video screens, track spots, and two flash panels on the floor.


The Grand prize was a pager, sponsored by Rogers
In 2000, I won a Rogers Pager at the Dance a Thon because I dance most of the night away.

Here is a list of some Memorable songs that were played by the Sight and Sound DJs

All Around the World, ATC, Played at the 2000 Dance a Thon


American Pie, Madonna, this song was the final song at the 2000 Dance a thon. 
Barbie Girl, Aqua, Played at the 1999 and 2000 Dance a thon

We Like to Party (The Venga Bus), Venga Boys, Played at the 1999 and 2000 Dance A Thon 
Why Are You So Quiet, Aquagen, Played at 5:45 AM at the 2000 Dance a Thon

During the late 1990's Hip Hop was requested too much.  I wanted to dance to upbeat music like cotton eye joe, Put your hands up in the air, Why are you so Quiet, etc.

Keep your ears to the tracks for more songs that were played at both Dance a Thons.
