The ‘new’ Good Vibrations has finished

lp4About 5 months, I’ve worked on a format change for Good Vibrations, and it’s finished now. It’s (like in the early days) focussing on danceable and funky music now, the reason: It’s easier to maintain a narrower format. I had the choice between doing this, neglecting the old station (only scheduling extra days from time to time, nothing more) or stopping with the station, and I didn’t want the last two options.

Some aspects of the last year renewed Radionomy software are making it hard to maintain a multigenre station in the right way, if you want a (quite) fluent sound and the right tracks on the right moment of the day; some stuff is too harsh or darkish for office hours. I got crazy of many of the tiny changes; the combination of the current – also somewhat slower – software and the complicated structure of the old station was demotivating.

Less genres means a less complicated station structure. There’s still enough variety left, though, ánd a brand new voice-over (still thanks to Michael Kames, who did a great job four years long): take a listen and visit this page for the new program schedule. :)

Displaying the genres at this site

lp4At the moment, I’m changing the way the genres are displayed. Instead of the stars (still on most pages), I’m going to mention clear genres. At the moment I’m typing this, the 2009-2015 pages are finished already.

Edit, one week later: it’s finished.
