New section: current decade only

lp4There’s a new era section: ‘Current decade only’. An alternative for the 2007-now section, for those preferring pages containing 10s music only. You’ll find it here.

 


Good Vibrations has stopped broadcasting

lp4From today on, Good Vibrations doesn’t exist anymore, shortly after its fifth birthday. Pulling the plug was a hard decision; last +/- 5 months, it was just sitting back, changing nothing to my stations and waiting till the problems would be solved.

But it keeps going on; the lawsuit and royalties issues behind the scenes of the streaming service I made use of (that service versus the Big Ones in the music and media world), the more and more mysterious atmosphere around that streaming service, important apps/websites (Nobex, Tunein) removing or at least blocking all the stations of that streaming service, etcetera.

It’s like a domino effect, it’s enough now.

About óther big apps/sites:

  • The besides TuneIn possibly most important one, the iTunes webradio database, is still there, but the description of my station hasn’t changed in months. It’s still the same as 6 months ago, while I’ve asked several times to change it. And it’s not only Good Vibrations suffering from this. According to the discussion board of the streaming service, the reason is that putting all those stations of that streaming service in the iTunes database/changing the descriptions of the stations into the current situation takes so much time, technically – but 6 months??? To me, it looks more like a unsteady collaboration between the streaming service and iTunes, having not that much future.
  • Another quite big service which is still left, Windows Media Guide, is slowly dying, partly because Windows 8(.1) and 10 don’t support it. More and more people are making use of those newer systems. WMG also didn’t want to change the description, when I asked for it November 2015 (I changed the format shortly before that); “due to technical maintenance, our publication have been put on hold”. Since then, nothing changed.
  • The result is that both iTunes and Windows Media Guide are still promoting Good Vibrations as a ‘rhythmic’ station, while it was a general pop station since autumn 2015 already.

So, besides the other issues, it was becoming harder and harder to promote my station in the right way. All these things together are taking away the motivation to work on it. It feels like an endless tug-of-war. Three years ago, everything worked a lot more smoothly and websites/apps were more open for you as an amateur broadcaster.

I’m thinking about making 1 hour radio like compilations (jingles included) in Audacity, putting them on Mixcloud and linking to them here. But there isn’t a clear concept ready yet.

Discovering there’s still a way for me to make something ‘radio like’ (in case I want to do that), made it easier to pull the plug, though.
