The Dead Air Show
while some might consider opai's show the flagship show of Radio KoL, it's actually not, which is a bit of a surprise.
i'd give a description of what you might hear but to be blunt, the show's all over the place. imagine something that combines old punk with modern electro, and fills in all the gaps with some sort of grey and orange-flavoured intelligent noise. And if that actually helped you, probably nothing else can.
Monday 8 - 11pm GMT (3 - 6pm EST)
Thursday 7 - 10pm GMT (2 - 5pm EST)
I don't normally play requests so getting one played on my show isn't usually an easy task. If you do want to request something though, first make the request in the /radio channel to see if it's the type of thing I might play.
I'll warn you now though, I will never play any Queen or Pink Floyd, as I despise them. It's also pretty unlikely that you'll hear any 'classic rock', ska-punk, modern 'pop-punk', or anything made by a highly processed commercial band that apparently understands the misunderstood youth of a nation.

What A Stupid Name. How Did It Originate?
the name 'opai' came from a typo of the last four letters of 'monofiopia'. yes, it bears a resemblance to a japanese word meaning something rude, but i had no idea of that at the time, honest. i was told about it about a week after signing up on KoL, and just hoped no one would realise.
everywhere else on the internet and in real life, i am 'monofiopia' and have been for about six or seven years. monofiopia is, essentially, my 'stage' name - i use it on all music i make, i used it in bands i was in, and i use it on all non-KoL stuffs on t'internets.
