I'll be on the lookout for ways to help out. Maybe if you went ahead and becamea retailer of the CD's like you were talking about, then it might help getting waivers too?? and increase revenue to be better able to pay for the waivers you don't get back...

Do I understand that we modem users may be able to listen to Highlander Radio again? (I hope, I hope)

And is there a way to donate other than using paypal? I used my paypal account once (I think last time I donated here) but I didn't save my paswword etc. and since then I've changed my e-mail and it was a nightmare to try and get access back in there. Sooo, is there another way? Checks accepted? If not, I'll try and break into the unending circle of nonlogic of paypal.

Ok, I am going to see if we can have 3 streams. Broadband, modem (24kps) and a special programming stream which won't be live but will have featured artists and special non live programming.

We can try 24kps and see if it works. I hate to go lower, but we could try it out. Since our modem stream was never heavily used, we will get a small # of listeners maybe 25.

Selling CD's is possible and we will probably do it in the future. But we first need the musician database and the back end adm site. Everything is kinda related to each other how we are designing it. Like the song database will interact with the musician database which will interact with the CD database.

I don't want to just throw a HTML page up if you know what I mean. Then, if we start selling CD's and become a for profit, then our streaming costs double! LOL....its a no win situation, so for now we will just focus on developing the site!

We need to develop a plan to contact artists and get waivers. But with live365 we do not as we are now officiallly licensed. Over the course of the next year we will develope that piece of the station. We have to build stuff to track it, keep it, maintain it, etc. I tend to think that for right now, we will use our time to build the site to make it even better, but the long term goal is for us to become an independent broadcaster paying for all fees ourselves and being completely in complaince with the rules and laws.

Please give us a few days to get the site and broadcast running again. We have to make alot of changes, but hopefully by the end of today the broadband stream will be back up with requests. I'll post a message in the news section.

Also, live365 has ways to support broadcasters. We have put some links on our frontpage to sign up for a preferred live365 account and to also make live365 your favorite station. We get a small kick back for this ($1.50 for a new account and pennies for favorites), but understand that the accounts are with live365 and you get access to all of their stations.

Oh, and right now there might be some issues with buffer on live365. I was reading last nite they were having some issues. Other broadbasters I have spoken to said that they have pretty much been trouble free for the past 2 years.

Ok, thats it for now!

Mac,

You have the beginings of the list of artists already and some of the albums and therefore, the record companies. Tracking down some of the indies may be a little bit trickier. I can organize the info and start making contacts with the easier ones with the more difficult ones to follow. All I would need is a couple of lists, albums and artists. Once the info is organized and coordinated, it could be split among several (?) people. I'm sure we could find one or two around here to help out. Let me know.

The fees from Live365, are they a one-time fee or are they on a monthy basis?

And what are your plans for the musician database? Maybe I can help out somewhere in getting that together. Might help with contacting as well...

put a note for modem, or change it like
modem/GPRS

since GPRS offers modem-like speed (though upstream is only 9k), I tried the modem stream over GPRS, it's okay, but very unstable, it stops often, and load slowly (up to 10-15 seconds even with bb, GPRS same)

The modem stream is playing on my Mac right now. Not the BEST quality, but MUCH better than no highlander radio atall...

Where now the horse and the rider? Where is the horn that was blowing?
Where is the helm and the hauberk, and the bright hair flowing?
Where is the hand on the harpstring, and the red fire glowing?
Where is the spring and the harvest and the tall corn growing?
They have passed like rain on the mountain, like a wind in the meadow
The days have gone down in the West behind the hills into shadow
Who shall gather the smoke of the dead wood burning
Or behold the flowing years from the Sea returning?
