    Why 30 seconds silence? You couldn´t make such a long break in a radio show, could you? Isn´t there this rule „no longer than 3 sec.“ (otherwise the listener would doubt the funktion of his or her radio player)?
    By the way I love this Ice cream man so much!

  2. Michael Engelbrecht:

    This is not for radio, it is for making this as a mix tape of your own. The 30 seconds of silence are essential for the aesthetic and psychologocal reasons.

    If you ever listen to it, you will never ask the 30-seconds-silence question again. As I wrote, it is a careful sequencing …

  3. Michael Engelbrecht:

    In fact, I can play thirty seconds of silence on air. You just have to inform the man in the electric room. And it has to be after midnight.
