iTunes listing

Posted by on Nov 18, 2012 in stuff | 0 comments

I just dropped an email to iTunes requesting that they add Gumbo Radio to their list of Internet radio stations. It will be a few months (if at all) before I hear back from them. Until then, if you want to listen to Gumbo Radio directly from the URL, try this:

If you want to use iTunes now to listen to Gumbo Radio, open iTunes, click on “Advanced” and then “Open Stream.” Copy and paste the URL above into the box and hit “OK.” That should do the trick.

Thank you

Thanks to everyone who pitched in – whether financially, helping spread the word, or both – to help Gumbo Radio.

Within 30 days, we not only reached the goal of Gumbo Radio’s crowdsourcing campaign, we surpassed it by over 50%. That’s going to allow me to replace the hardware, beef up the audio quality, and redesign the entire website.

There’s still more work to be done, but stage 1 of Phase Deux has officially come to an end!

Thanks again.

Back to basic

It looks like I spoke too soon.

Around 3am this morning, The PowerBook G4 just stopped working. I’ve tried to revive it a few times today, but not with any luck. I can force reboot the machine and the apple logo comes up, but that’s as far as I get. There’s one other option I plan on trying, but it could take a few days before I can get around it.

So for now the broadcast is back to its basic mode. That means you’re going to hear some commercials and the 7-hour playlist instead of the 21-day playlist.

Once I switch the broadcast back to its live state, I’ll post it here.

Meet the new boss

After a couple of months of test driving it, I think it’s safe to say we have a new Mac to run the 24-hour broadcast of Gumbo Radio.
