A big ol’ update

Posted by on Apr 5, 2013 in stuff | 0 comments

Well, it’s been quite a long time since the playlist has been updated, so we’re making up for it with a massive new update. We’ve just added an additional 5.5 days worth of music for a playlist over 27.5 days long. Listen for new music from Ray Abshire, Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Woody Guthrie, Webb Pierce, Faron Young, R.L. Burnside, Junior Kimbrough, Dale Hawkins, and music from the HBO series Treme. Over the next few days we’ll mention the latest updates to the playlist on Gumbo Radio’s Facebook page. Enjoy!

Update maintenance

Posted by on Feb 16, 2013 in stuff | 0 comments

The live broadcast is going to be down for the next day or so. I’m adding 30 albums to the mix and need to do some routine maintenance. It shouldn’t be a big deal. You can still check out the 6-hour canned broadcast until the live mix is back up and running, probably by Monday at the latest.

Happy New Year!

Along with Gumbo Radio’s clean new design, I’ve also added a couple of new pages to the mix, including the shop. There was some merchandise left over from the Indiegogo crowdsourcing campaign – including bumper stickers, T-shirts, and The Original Zydecozy. Now you can pick up on these items anytime you want while helping support the live broadcast of Louisiana’s music.

And Gumbo Radio’s sound has never been sweeter. With a 128k audio stream, you can listen to the 24-hour broadcast in CD-quality. Right now, the playlist contains nearly 9,000 songs for 22 days worth of music. But I’m updating this too on an ongoing basis. I just can’t help myself.

Thanks again to all the fine folks who helped out with this last phase of Gumbo Radio’s growth. Your contributions are already coming to fruition.

Have a safe and happy new year!

4 years running

Today marks year No. 4 for Gumbo Radio, and it doesn’t quite seem possible. But it’s true. Since then we’ve secured some new hardware (thanks to your efforts and contributions) to keep the broadcast running live, and I recently upgraded the audio to a CD-quality 128k stream. And the library now has 22 days worth of music – about 8,950 songs.

I hope you’re having as much with this as I am.
