We have been working on Premium and subscription services for a few months now. The changes are listed below!
1. “Premium 320 is now active. This is a full 320kbps stream that is accessed from our webpage. (Currently Private stream)
2. Along with the activation of this new stream, Automated Requests and Top Requested pages have become subscription services.
We have tried to keep everything very reasonable and hopefully will help the Station(s) move forward for the future.
Thank you all for your support!

January 24, 2017Song Removals

::: FYI to all listeners:::

In order to free up additional hard drive space, most songs older than year 2000 will be removed. Selected tracks that are newer and never requested will also be removed. Hard drive space = money. We need more of the first and have none of the latter.. That means more space for new songs… and thats the deal! Have a good day 🙂
