Radio Century (my Page and Player here at CherryTree com)
now owns a Broadcasting package at Live365, the same site
that hosts CherryTree Radio.
We now have the option of scheduled playlist-driven Web Radio
broadcasts OR studio-driven Live (or almost live) broadcasts, similar
to Martin's "The Morning Orchard" here at CT Radio.
The process of re-formatting and uploading my own tracks to
Radio Century @ Live365 site is well underway, with 6 tracks
"in the can" with green-flags, ready to broadcast (i hope!). The
sound quality is GOOD! (our bitrate=128kbps, while a standard
FM Radio broadcast is 96kbps).
HOW we broadcast is limited by DMCA (Digital Millenium Copyright Act)
and Live365's Playlist Analyzer that enforces rules about how many
times per hour we can play tracks by the same artist and etc. etc.
If our Broadcast Playlist is less than 1 hour in length, Live365
won't broadcast it.
Sheesh, there is a lot to learn!!!!!!
There is also LOTS to explore, like the segue button(?)... voiceovers??
I do not have a realistic date for first broadcast, but this is FUN, it's
a kick, i can't keep my hands offa it, so it's just a matter of time!
THANKS, AND STAY TOONED!!!!!!!!!
