This one plays 80's new wave, post-punk, c86/indie and some hardcore punk (sometimes). Mostly obscure/rare stuff from the US & UK and other countries- which you might never hear anywhere else :wink:

They also have live DJs every now and then...

This one too-
http://www.andys80s.com/

You can queue up to 5 songs at a time (as your personal requests).

There's also a forum and 80's arcade games.

Truth be told, that's where I usually hang out...

Oh man, got on this site at work, and the religious guy next to me didn't really like the home page.....! #-o
hahah it was a funny situation though :lol: Anyways, I'll check this out when I get home. I'm not a big fan of the 80's, but was really into the goth/post-punk scene at one point.
And 80's arcade games can't be beat! :P

Hahahah! You're probably talking about Roxy Music's "Country Life" album cover :lol: ... but no worries, it changes each time you reopen the site.

Yeah, there's enough goth & post-punk stuff on Andy's library, so you can easily request them... and if there's any song/album you'd want to see added, just request for it on the shoutbox and he will add it. :wink:

i used to run / host an internet radio station 128kbps is near as damn it CD quality, and if you are encoding to aac, its better than cd quality. Our station used a twin technics set up though a pioneer DJM 800 in to a broadcast compressor and in to a mac with an m-audio 24/96. sound quality was great. website ran with an embeded flash player, or links to play using a play or your choice. Not expensive to set up, and to be honest doesnt take a lot of technical skill either. there are plenty of sites gving information. the only thing that gets in the way is PRS licencing. sill rules around how many tracks fro the same album you can play in a set amount of time etc etc. and having to keep a complete log of every track you play. kinda cuts amatuers out of the market a bit.

I was actually wondering how online radio admins are addressing the copyright/royalty issues for the songs they play. Isn't it illegal to play any song in public without the authorization of the artist/copyright owner or something?- and is there some sort of payment due to them? I'm totally clueless on how the whole thing works :oops:

You have to obtain a license from PPL in the UK

they can be quite expensive, but it depends on what music you will be playing.

For me, Internet Radio is something I can put on and not necessarily "listen" to, but something that keeps me company. If it's been a long day and I want to crash in the recliner, not thinking about anything,
then I turn to
the Texas Country music at Radio Free Texas http://www.radiofreetexas.org/
It seems like there are a million country bands in Texas you've never heard of , (and probably won't either, in the future)
And then there's Planet Rock http://www.planetrock.com/ with guest hosts, Alice Cooper , Joe Elliott, Joe Bonamassa, etc.
See what you think. :D

Roku Soundbridge Help

Post by Coffee Phil » 04 May 2012 19:36

I have a Roku Soundbridge Internet "Radio Tuner" in my system. It does a good job and permits me to listen to the jazz station which I used to listen to on terrestrial radio before I moved. It is however user hostile unless you are a computer geek. It has presets similar to a car radio but loading them is a challenge. They have a program called Radio Snooper which will analyze an internet station which you find on your computer and if the format is compatible (most are) with the sound bridge you can load it into one of the presets via Wi-Fi.

This program requires something called WPCAP.DLL which it tries to load onto the computer if it is not already there. I get a message that its WPCAP.DLL is not compatible with my version of Windows. (Windows 7) I did a search for a version of WPCAP.DLL which would run on my computer. I found something warning not to load a version of WPCAP.DLL unless I could be sure it is genuine. The whole thing spooked me so here I am still not able to program my presets.

What now?

Thanks,

Phil

There are some great radio stations here. I'm listening to ancientfm right now. Does anyone have any idea how I can put any of this music on my hard drive? I'm not a computer whiz by any means.
