END OF AN ERA

By on January 31, 2016 in RPR Station and Site

Rat Patrol Radio’s host, Live365, has gone out of business. So, after more than 15 years wonderful years as a Founding Broadcaster at Live365, Rat Patrol Radio has to find a new base of operations.  I have decided to give Radionomy a try, after looking at various options.

This is a large undertaking, since I had ripped 150 CDs worth of music at AM quality, so it would sound the same as the WWII news reports I broadcast. Radionomy requires all files to be at least 128kbps, which means I have to re-rip every song,

For now, I am updating at www.facebook.com/ratpatrolradio while I work on rebuilding the station. Please check there for updates, until I can get this site redone.

Thanks for 15 wonderful years, and I sincerely hope you follow me over to the new provider!

      Hi Chris!
      I’m getting home late during the week, but trying to load a few CDs every night. Then I have to figure out the broadcast controls. They’re much more upscale than at Live365. I’ll post here and on Facebook when we go live!

      Thanks for listening!

    Sorry to hear about Live365. It was nice because it was available on iTunes player and I could stream it to other speakers in my house using Apple airport express adapters. Looking forward to seeing your station back again. Thanks for your hard work
