My new years resolution is to have a LibreTime automation instance running the Area893.com stream by the end of 2022.

This would allow us side-channel labratory collaborators @ChristmasCarol , @nomoneymark , Steve Z, maybe even @PeckoBoB to switch the stream from archive shuffle mode to Live mode without stopping the stream, regularly schedule archives and other programs.

Next level Area893.com by end of 2022! That's my resolution.

Very pleased and pleasantly surprised to find the Great Lakes Radio Conspiracy listed on the official WCSB program schedule! Much thanks to whoever did this!

A late Sunday afternoon on the north shore of Lake Erie (Port Bruce, Ontario)

Servers in the background,
Humming electronic things
We out in the user world
Don't notice their powerful wings.

Until the site we're using
Crashes, goes offline, goodbye
That is, then, the exact moment
When we all begin to cry.

When the RAID drive dies
The bases of our data
Cannot be read out
Stilled wings, Tears brings.

Quick techs, things back to specs
Backups soon restored
Way too much stress for admins
But another tech win scored!

*Thx, @mastohost and anonymous others.*

Excellent Dricore rewind happening on the Stately Crap Manor stream this afternoon. Ultra Bunny/Malcom Tent interview from late summer 2016 & a classic 2009 episode running as I type.

Area893.com
or Area893 on the Simple Radio app
or "ALEXA, ask Simple Radio to play Area-8-9-3"

@Ben most definitely will be doing more online-only talk/music shows on Area893.com, but probably not until mid-May. In the process of moving, temporary place not ideal for live streaming...

Welcome to an online community experiment initiated and administered by Dave B, and built on a non-proprietary, non-commercial, "twitter-like" social media platform (Mastodon). While WCSB show archives feature prominently, this platform in no way represents WCSB, staff, management or station membership. That said, station members are always welcome and encouraged to engage. The aim is to grow an online community of like minded radio, music, sound art aficionados, supporters of WCSB's uniqueness, mission and programming. This is a space to share and discuss, but not a place to dish personal or organizational dirt. Adults only please :-)
