Local internet radio show opens
Forwarded from Bristol LUG mailing list – how is that radio course development going Paul? :).
I’m currently involved in an internet radio station project. We have a 3 hour show each week, and for the other 24×6+21 hours the original show is looped.So I was thinking of maybe having a techie show in there somewhere. Perhaps on a different stream. Perhaps from a different server (our DSL line already pushes the current stream up to the nice people at uk.indymedia.org as well as hosting iraq.indymedia.org; it’s getting a little crowded :-). We could record the show in our studio with pre-recorded items and inserts and transfer the whole recorded show (or possibly separate mp3s/oggs) to somewhere else for hosting / streaming.
If streaming is a problem we could arrange to insert it into the current stream at a prearranged time or times.Also if anyone has anything interesting to say that isn’t particularly techie, or is relevant to or understandable by normal humans we’d welcome you on the regular show on Thursday nights. See http://dialect.bettercode.com/.
And on a slightly different note, there is a distinct lack of radio automation software for Linux out there. After looking at some of the windoze demo software out there (having no experience in radio that was somewhat of a learning curve) I’ve figured out what I need to get a good semi-automated show going (or fully automated) but it doesn’t really translate to a web browser app, which is my main area of experience. I’d like to get it into PerlQt but I’ve never used it before. If anyone has, I’d be grateful for some help with the first few ‘Aha!s’. Contact me off-list?
