Old Format in Today's World

I remember this as a kid (1960's) but I don't know if it's done today. I remember a radio station that played 20 minutes of news (local, national) at the top of the hour and then played 40 minutes of "easy listening" (elevator) music. This station was on for years, but did change their format. (chan...

Re: Do people really listen to internet radio station

I agree with dwc151. Streaming doesn't produce profit. We did an experiment for 6 months with 2 different companies to see if we could generate sells for them by means of streaming. Their ads only ran on our streaming and not on the antenna. 1 company is a nation wide company who provides a services...

Re: Do people really listen to internet radio station

(As far as “Do people really listen to internet radio station” I think for their favorite shows, but nothing more.) was based on many people go to sleep listening to their radios, but not their computers. In other words, people turn off their computers when they leave them but not their radios. "Cel...

Re: Country Cross Roads

People post crap on here trying to achieve "link back" to their site. A few years ago, google gave you ranking (which means better placement on searches) for the amount of websites that linked to your site. It only worked if people "clicked the link." So they say anything to get you to click it. Goo...

Re: Scam Or Not A Scam?

Streaming audio is the future. New cars are coming out with WiFi connections. The current system is young and (lack of a better word) a joke. Until something happens to organize it, it will stay this way. Keep in mind every 12 year old kid can run a streaming broadcast with little to no overhead. Fo...

Re: Contests... legal?

Just find out what the state your broadcasting in says about give aways. Your a business and you have to follow the same laws any other business does, even though your on the internet. Read local contest rules from major companies to understand what I'm saying As far as the feds are concerned, they ...

Re: Do people really listen to internet radio station

I agree there are zillions of Internet stations. Anybody can start one up. From a business point of view, it’s not viable. The reason is: it’s too hard to lock a market by means of some forum of measurement. (age, location) It has already been proven that even with a good/popular host, you still get...

Re: Do people really listen to internet radio station

bluesintheburg - I understand what you are saying but it doesn't answer the question. "Do people really listen to internet radio station" At my terrestrial station (which is rural) and we offer streaming audio, we get about 12K listeners a week. Seeing anybody in the world can listen, these numbers ...
