30 records in 30 days goes into the 30th round: house music all night long.
This is the end of the 30 days and at the same time a beginning. This record was the spark that set me off in a very specific direction: House in all its different forms. I first noticed this not only during this challenge, but already a few weeks ago, when I discovered a very good remake of the best track on this double album: Let me love you for tonight. Originally by Kariya, remixed by Weiss. That’s it, I’ll nominate myself for the next challenge. Hahaha.
My brain is in the cupboard, above the kitchen sink. That’s how I feel in corona times. Sitting at home, not just one day to relax. No, the entire week, 24/7. What’s left? Nothing, everything is boring. Wait. A techno angel is knocking at your door. It has a gift…
Enjoy – directly from the machine heaven – the Januar edition of tante techno’s tea time. May the music be with you! And don’t even think about switching to the wrong side of the music…
30 records in 30 days goes into the sixth round, with the swinging sultans from the wild west.
Here comes my musical coming-out, part 3: the debut album of Dire Straits. With this record, I travel way back in my youth. A friend of mine showed up with it one day and really wanted us to listen to it together right away. That’s how enthusiastic he was about it. It was also on my side a musical love at first sight and the record accompanied us both through many, very long nights, during which we talked about everything and anything. In the background this record was playing at least once a night. Very often more than once.
So it is always a musical memory of this phase of my youth. There is no favorite for me on the LP, it is simply excellent as a whole. In my opinion, the Dire Straits have in the following albums unfortunately no longer this unused freshness and musical nonchalance musically implement. Simply a unique piece of music.
30 records in 30 days goes into the fifth round, with holydays on a lucky star.
Here comes my musical coming out, part 2. Yes, I like Madonna. When I started picking out the 30 records for my challenge last weekend, I knew that the artist’s debut album definitely belonged to this collection. Why? The album as a whole was a musical reminder of high school graduation for me. Besides, my best friend and I listened to it until we dropped.
So I was very surprised to find out that it was released a year after I graduated from high school. Crap, now I have been telling nonsense for more than 3 decades. I noticed this error when I tried to put the records in a chronological order last Saturday.
Since then, I’ve been desperately trying to figure out what was really my high school graduation anthem. I’ve been looking at all the charts and since then I’ve been getting on the nerves of my circle of friends with the question “can you still remember 1982 …”. Over the course of the last week, a hot candidate has emerged, Tainted Love by Soft Cell. But that track came out in 1981. Well, I guess I’ll be digging around for a while. I am grateful for any suggestions.
It’s christmas time. And unfortunately the clubs are still closed. Santa Claus is peeking around the corner and making the annoying “ho ho” sounds. He brought special 2021 gift, the new corona virus mutation. So what? No more DJ sets? I’m not Santa Claus and I have a gift for everybody who is bored of “jingle bells” and “last christmas”.
Does not really fit the quiet time before Christmas, but what the heck: lights off, spotlight on… Dance until the billy shelf topples over and neighbor threatens with the police. Let’s play techno! Merry Christmas and a happy new year!
House only. Finally playing again after the shutdown. It was fun, even without the dance floor. Hopefully the clubs can open again soon! Thanks to the wonderful audience, thanks to the sorgenfrei team. Enjoy listening.

This is a weird story about two completely different characters: tante techno and uncle house. Both love music, but totally different genres. Lets start with uncle house. He lives in an emotional world. He reacts emotionally to events and can shift quickly from mood to mood. He has rich imaginations, tells entertaining stories, and he is drawn to romance and melodrama. He is always in the center of attention and likes all kinds of house music. He is easily putting his trust in others and he is seeking always for new opportunities and new relationships.
One day he got an irresistible offer: play a gig with tante techno. She was known for hard, electronic #music and for her impatience. Anyone who played a style of music she didn’t like was simply eaten. Any sensible guy would have said no (!) immediately, but our cute little guy again only saw the great party. It won’t be so bad, at the core tante techno is a nice thing too. His friends tried to persuade him, but it was no use, he wanted to play. And so the disaster took its course.
