Why do people including me say daft things, like when you're in a building and you look out the window you say it's raining outside.

Or Live in Concert, I mean of course they are I mean if would be silly to see them/him/her on stage dead in a coffin, no offence meant.

Actually there are buildings big enough to have their own weather, complete with rain, inside them. The one that comes to mind is the huge assembly building at Cape Kennedy.

And of course someone could be live, presenting a lecture or a dance performance. I think "in concert" is not the basic thought, modified by "live", but rather the other way around.

I did some live television back in the late Fifties and early Sixties. That meant that there was an element of simultaneity about the whole thing. People watching the shows saw and heard me doing what I was doing as I was doing it. Live television can be a bit nervous-making. You can't back it up and edit it. What you do is what they geti.e., don't pick your nose when you're on camera.

Now, I sit in front of the television set and the announcer says, "And now, live from Lincoln Center," or something like that—then they play me a tape..

It's a strange, strange world we live in, Master Jack.

When I'm watching the six o'clock local news on channel 4 and I see Dan Lewis and Kathi Goertzen on the screen of my TV set, I know that at that moment they are sitting in the studio down on 4th Avenue near the Seattle Center speaking as I watch and listen. That's live. Then later in the evening, I switch over to channel 7 (CBS) and watch a rerun of Everybody Loves Raymond. Ray Romano and Patricia Heaton were live in the studio when they shot the show, but what I saw the first time around was not live, it was a tape. And the rerun is still a tape.

When I watch one of the Inspector Morse mysteries on my local PBS affiliate, that's a tape. John Thaw was live when they taped the show, but he (the actor who played Morse) died a few years ago. What I'm seeing on my TV screen is not live. Nor is the actor who played the lead role live. It's on tape.

When I watched a Grateful Dead concert on the tube, the announcer said, "And now, the Grateful Dead, live from—(wherever it was)." But by then, Jerry Garcia was dead, and the group had disbanded. The group, indeed, was dead. No way you looked at it was it live. Once. Not anymore.

Don't believe everything you hear on TV, Clinton. A lot of it—most of it—is sheer illusion, no matter what the booth announcer tells you.

(By the way, butt-scratching is always a big favorite. . . .)

Furthermore.

In 1971-72, I worked as an announcer for a radio station that operated live-board during the day, but went automated overnight. There was a large IGM (International Good Music) machine sitting in the studio, but just outside the control room. One of the staff had attached a poster of Boris Karloff as Frankenstein's monster to the front of the machine. I ran live board from 6:00 p.m. till midnight. Part of my job was to program the machine to run unattended from midnight to 6:00 a.m. I slapped a couple of big open-reel tapes on the deck and stuck commercial, public service announcement, and station-break cartridges in the carousels. Then, checking the music lists that came with the open-reel tapes, I taped voice-tracks, back-announcing the music that the listeners had just heard (or will have just heard), and inserted the cartridge into the carousel. An important part of programming the machine was to keep track of the exact durations of everything and carefully flip the necessary switches to make sure that the music tapes stopped and started at the right instant, the commercials played when they were scheduled, and, generally, that everything came up at the time and in the sequence it was supposed to. At precisely midnight, I punched the button that switched the station over from live-board to automation, signed the log, and went home.   

As I was listening to the car radio while driving home, I could hear myself announcing the music titles. There was no one—no one—at the station.

Definitely not live.

(Great gimmick for a murder mystery. "But detective, how could I possibly have committed the murder? I was on the air at the time the crime was committed. Thousands of people heard me." I think Clint Eastwood did something like this in Play Misty for Me when he was supposed to be on the air, but had to go rescue his girl friend from the murderous Evelyn.)

re: "Live in Concert" In this neck of the woods one of the popular events is the "Pink Floyd Laser Light Show." They rent out a place and play Pink Floyd CDs over the PA while having a live laser show. So while the audience is listening to Pink Floyd, they are definitely not In Concert.
Also, it is not uncommon for a venue to simulcast an event as it happens on their big screen TV. So while you could go see, say, Tina Turner In Concert, it is not Live at that venue. So at least around here there is a difference between "In Concert" and "Live, in Concert"

re: "Live Recording" While all recordings start off live, not all of them end up that way. Live Recording is generally reserved for when they set up in front of an audience, roll tapes, do a performance, and release it as is. The alternative is multiple takes, editting, dubbing, etc., to end up with a recording that sounds (thoretically) better, but doesn't necessarily reflect a performance.

I made some cheese bread for a guy I was seeing and he said, "Is it good?"

I said, "No, it tastes like ass but I thought I'd share."

Groucho Marx's reply to "Have a nice day" was , "I'll have any damn day I please."

A tip if "I'll try ......" isn't your fave.

Put a small object in the upturned, flat palm of your hand and ask them to "Try and take it."
Usually they'll take it.
Tell them they failed the experiment,'cos you didn't ask them to "take it", then pause a bit to see when the penny drops.
