Just a programming update...  Recently I've completed 3 small quality merges to cherry pick the best programs for the stream.  In doing so, I added 35 episodes of Bright Star - a 30 minute comedy starring Irene Dunne and Fred MacMurray, 20 episodes of Pat Novak For Hire - a 30 minute detective show starring Jack Webb and Raymond Burr, and 6 episodes of Pete Kelly's Blues - a 30 minute crime drama featuring blues music, also starring Jack Webb.

A few listeners contacted me about us falling out of the ShoutCast directory.  After some research, I found their database was corrupted back in January and they're continuing to have issues.  In monitoring ShoutCast, I see us in the list correctly for a few days, then not listed at all, then with an incorrect genre.  

Just this morning I found us listed in the "House" genre, rather than "Old Time Radio"!  Here's a screenshot example... Notice our station isn't the only one showing up incorrectly.

MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!!!  

December 16th, 2016

I've just spent the last month working 6 - 10 hours a day on upgrades and additions to our Christmas playlist - Twelve Days of Christmas!

I've sourced and pre-screened over 90 hours of new shows and found many upgrades.  There's now over 277 hours of Old TIme Radio programs and music in the playlist for Christmas.

I wish everyone and your families a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy and Prosperous New Year!!

And a big THANK YOU again for all your support, donations and emails!

We have have plenty of bandwidth/listener slots so share and enjoy!!   Be sure to follow us on Twitter @ConyersOTR!

I've just spent almost 3 weeks working on upgrades and additions to our Halloween playlist!   I've added many shows that represent the best of OTR horror.   

I'll switch over to it around 4pm the afternoon of October 31st (give or take a few minutes) and it'll run through the evening of November 2nd.   The new playlist is almost 52 hours - more than doubling our old playlist!

The playlist is loaded up with Old Time Radio's best and scariest shows!    All sorts of ghosts, demons and hideous things!!    Frankenstein, Dracula, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, and the Orson Welles Halloween classic....    The War Of The Worlds!    

The War of The Worlds should play right around 8:00pm or so just like it did back on October 30th, 1938.    This is the original radio broadcast that put the country into a panic 78 years ago!

June has come and as some of you have noted - I am "retired" now!  I should be able to spend much more time with our OTR collection and adding new and higher quality shows to the stream.  As you can see on our home page, I've setup a Twitter account @ConyersOTR where I've posted a few notes.  I'll use Twitter to post as we experience power or internet outages and server restarts.

On the fun side, I've had refrigerator magnets made up with a cool retro design!!  I've been sending these to everyone that's made at least a  $5.00 donation recently.  When you make a donation, please be sure to send me your mailing address so I can put one into the mail for you!

Happy New Year!!  And a big THANK YOU to everyone that made donations this year!!  Especially those large donations that offset all our hosting and stream costs for the year!  Even if we do fall short - I'll never resort to injecting audio clips begging for donations.  This is great hobby that I enjoy sharing.  I have our costs as low as they can be and still have a reliable stream.

This year promises to be an exciting year!  First - my job of the last 28 years is being outsourced, so I'm taking an early retirement June 3rd!  I should be able to devote much more time to sourcing and merging collections of programs for the stream.  I do "quality merges" where I purchase and download from as many sources I can find, then only add the best sounding programs to our library.  For instance, I have nearly 4000 episodes of The Lone Ranger and over 500 episodes of Our Miss Brooks in waiting to sort and compare before adding any to our playlist.  Our everyday playlist already contains over 10,000 shows and runs for over 6 months without a repeat (except for those shows that did re-run).

I plan to update the homepage a little this year, document how the station runs and build a new server here at the house for the source stream.  Our current server I built back in 2009.  It needs a hard drive replaced and the fans have gotten very noisy.

Once agian...  THANK YOU ALL FOR THE DONATIONS!!!  I appreciate each and every one no matter how small or large!

After all these years I've finally registered a domain just for our radio station!  

http://www.ConyersRadio.net/

It's about time right?  We've only been running the stream for 12.5 years!! LOL

Some interesting stats I happened to notice!  We have over 28.4k followers on Tune-In Radio!  All I can say is WOW!  Thanks for all the support!!

The new UPS has been installed!!   This is the one I use ...

CyberPower CP1500PFCLCD PFC Sinewave UPS 1500VA 900W PFC Compatible Mini-Tower


June 22nd, 2015

Sorry for the outage today folks!!    Our UPS took a hit apparently and took the station down.    We're running without one for the time being...    I'll get us a new one ASAP!!


November 23rd, 2014

Ok - it looks like our previous stream host no longer exists at all - they failed to renew their domain names!!   I no longer have access to that stream's control panel, so I've removed the links to that stream from our homepage.  If you've ever set or saved a bookmark to the stream in your players you'll need to delete it and only use the current stream URL.    

This past week I've been contacting Tune-In Radio and Reciva to have our station updated.  This morning I confirmed that Tune-In Radio is working, but I don't have a WiFi Internet radio to test the Reciva database.  I believe if you use a WiFi radio, you'll need to search for and resave the bookmark for our station.   To double check your bookmarks, please make sure it shows this URL when you edit it:

Hi folks!! It's been a while since my last update!  About a week ago our website and stream host provider had a catastrophic failure and apparently the backups were of no use.  As an IT guy myself, I know this does happen on very rare occasions.  

Since then, I've moved our websites to GoDaddy.com and just signed up with a 2nd stream host relay provider with 1000 listener slots.  This increases our monthly costs, but I felt it's well worth the peace of mind!!  On the home page you can now take your pick of listening to either stream.   If one is down, the other should be up!!  If both are down and silent that most likely means my internet is down - or my server at the house is down for a restart or has failed.  

Thank You ALL for your support and patience while we were totally down!!!

Yesterday we had a short down time as I switched my source stream here at the house from a DSL connection over to a COMCAST cable modem.  I hope the cable connection proves to be as reliable as my DSL has been over the last few years.  I also put in a new top of the line router!

All I can say is.... WOW IS IT FAST!!

Again this year I'll be running a special playlist for Halloween.  I'll switch over to it around 4pm Thursday afternoon (give or take a few minutes) and it'll run through Friday morning.  I'll switch back to our "huge" playlist before 5am.  

Our   Halloween playlist   is loaded up with some of Old Time Radio's best and scariest shows!   All sorts of ghosts, demons and hideous things!!
Frankenstein, Dracula, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, and even the Orson Welles Halloween classic....   The War Of The Worlds!  The War of The Worlds should play right around 8:00pm or so just like it did back on October 31st, 1938.   This is the original radio broadcast that put the country into a panic 75 years ago!  

Also... I wanted to say THANK YOU again for all your donations!!  Again this year we've met all our expenses!  Last week I increased the number of available listener slots to 250.  We had been hitting our 200 slot limit during the night.

I've been working on our Christmas playlist the last couple of weeks and have it set.  I plan to switch over to it this Saturday morning the 15th after a short shutdown of the server to cut in a new UPS.  Thanks to all the generous donations I've picked up an APC 1500!!  This should more than double our uptime during power outages!!  I expect for the server to stay up for at least an hour during any blackouts.  

The Christmas playlist has about 8.5 days programming, so it'll repeat once before I switch back to the regular shows and music around New Years.  

MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!!!
