So earlier today, Crystain, Larkin, and I were pretty much talking about music (mostly kissing Uematsu's ass, though well-deserved) and eventually one of us suggested starting a private radio station. Non-profit, of course. Just for the fun of having some sort of weekly BR playlist.

After speaking with Devistar, it's quite possible for us to do so but it requires a lot or work to be done if we want it to be free. So, instead, I was thinking about how we could streamline it in the beginning.

So I came to the conclusion that a radio station wouldn't have a live DJ, and just a playlist, why not just release a makeshift podcast? Just a long playlist with songs selected by the members that's put in a random order and released as a mp3 file. This makes it easier for members with bad connections to listen with ass connections.

If there's enough interest in it, we can probably have someone moderate the bit more like a DJ between every number of songs or actually launch a radio station (it's a lot of work for something that may only last a couple weeks). The more interest shown in the idea, the bigger BRadio will become. Here's the basic idea:


It'll be a podcast of songs selected by YOU, the members. Here's how selection is handled:

Music

Each week, by TUESDAY 4PM EST, each member who wants to get some music in will PM BRadio a list of THREE songs. They should be IN ORDER OF PREFERENCE, meaning from the one you definitely want on there, would like on there, and then just want on there.

In the PM subject line, please post the date of that Wednesday. For example, next week's submissions should have the subject "8-20-08"

1. Song I love - some artist
2. Song I like a lot - some other artist
3. Song I think is cool - Askura

The first song of each member's list will always make it on the show. Depending on how many submissions are sent in, only one or all of your songs will be on the show. If only 30 minutes of music is turned in, we'll use everyone's second songs and see from there. If there's a large list, we'll only get to your first. Target playlist length is between one and two hours. We have a lot of members, so one hour shouldn't be a problem at all.

The next week, you should renew your list. The songs can be the same or change, but make sure you contact BRadio and update/turn in your list.

All that is needed from you is to send in your three songs. We'll take care of finding the songs. If there's trouble doing so, we'll contact you to send it to us.

Shout-outs/call-ins

Do you want to have something said? Or patch your voice in? That's fine. Just attach the message (please not too long) after your list and we'll run your message through. If it's a "call-in", just record your message and we'll put it on that week's show.

There ARE some rules. Please don't be racist/prejudice in your messages. They won't be uploaded if you are. Also, make sure to mention who you are if it's a "call-in". You can upload call-ins at:

www.megaupload.com

www.rapidshare.com

Or other free file hosts.

Submission Rules?

You can pretty much send in any song you want, stupid or not. Awesome or lame. Whatever you like. This show's going to be reflective of its members. Because of that, there are going to be words and themes which may offend others. You've been warned. That said, this is all for fun and the love of music, so we're not intending to offend anyone any more than usual (if that's possible).

There's going to be some great ones, I can tell already (I'm so putting Barbie Girl in before we're done). Send in those songs!



Each week's show will have its playlist posted in the topic, with all song names and the names of those who submitted them posted (in order) along with a link where you can get the newest show.


Well, send in those lists to BRadio!

Thats not what I said ><You>.>; Podcasts are nice and all, but if you plan to include streamed video, alot of people using dial-up, won't be able to watch unless you really turn down the quality. Using a Server just for music, you can set the broadcasting khz, Say to, 48000, or 44000. Perfect for Modem users, but remember, Modem users can't really do two things at once. FFXI takes up a good 85% of the Bandwith on Dial-up, So even if I put the music on 22000, it'll still chop and cut out ;-; Podcasts will have to be buffered, so either way you go, you'll have to make a sacrifice. Its free either way, both are easy

It's not going to be streamed, it's going to be a download you can delete when you're done with. Also, there won't be video. It's a streamlined approach to the whole thing and less of a headache to produce. If there's interest in the project and it doesn't die in a couple weeks, I'd be more inclined to actually make a radio station.

What? Wait.. They will.. Download the music they wanna hear...? Then, whats the point in the station at all? If a Podcast is just going to be downloaded, then thats no different than just downloading the MP3s themselves isn't it?

Devi: I know, it's just a playlist kinda thing. I don't want to set up a station if I know there's no interest. Will do if this takes off.

Larkin:

Each week, by TUESDAY 4PM EST, each member who wants to get some music in will PM BRadio a list of THREE songs. They should be IN ORDER OF PREFERENCE, meaning from the one you definitely want on there, would like on there, and then just want on there.

yea!!!

Both counts are correct, actually. If a common song is found, it'll be used only once and then the second person to select it will just have their second song played. This is a pretty diverse LS, so we may not have that happen for a while. Maybe Cry and I will get some matches eventually, as we have similar tastes in music.

I heard that there was this ninja who was eating at a diner. And when some dude dropped a spoon the ninja killed the whole town. My friend Mark said that he saw a ninja totally uppercut some kid just because the kid opened a window. And that's what I call REAL Ultimate Power!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! If you don't believe that ninjas have REAL Ultimate Power you better get a life right now or they will chop your head off!!! It's an easy choice, if you ask me. Ninjas are sooooooooooo sweet that I want to crap my pants. I can't believe it sometimes, but I feel it inside my heart. These guys are totally awesome and that's a fact. Ninjas are fast, smooth, cool, strong, powerful, and sweet. I can't wait to start yoga next year. I love ninjas with all of my body (including my pee pee).
