Trouble with the player?

MP3 Version works on almost anything:

This Vorbis version sounds better!

Listeners Gain Control of the Station

Listeners to RadioInfoWeb’s main stream now can control some aspects of the programming in real-time, with more to come. This is made possible by alien technology implemented by our extraterrestrial Chief Engineer, known affectionately as “Doctor Octopus” (although he has far more than eight tentacles).

Newscast Requests

Listeners can now request newscasts. Once the request is made, the newscast will occur on the next station break. If a newscast has already been broadcast recently, the request will be deferred for a period of time.

As a result of this new feature, regularly scheduled newscasts have been cut back to a bare minimum. Thus, newscasts will only be heard when wanted. More music and fun!

Brain Candies

Brain candies are aural treats meant to stimulate the space center of the brain. These treats are HIGHLY recommended for space travellers, such as Radio InfoWeb listeners, and misguided bureaucrats who need to get straightened out.

Listeners are advised not to over-indulge in brain candies. Doing so could be bad for your waistline. Remember that when listening for long periods of time, you should periodically get up and do ecstacises, such as InfloWebs and OutfloWebs.

How To

Listeners will know how to make use of these controls.

Study: 71% of Mainstream Media News is Terror

In random samples of BBC News and NPR News radio news capsules, over 1 week following the attacks in France, we found 71% of the time was spent on stories related to the so-called terrorist attacks. The vast majority of this coverage was repetitive and contained nothing substantively new. 98% of the content consisted of parroting information provided by or stated by government officials, and no questions were asked.

We give the media studied a failing grade for not carrying out their jobs as news organizations and not asking a single question. We can only conclude the news organizations studied have become part of a propaganda machine in no longer executing on their journalistic functions.

The study was conducted unscientifically and with a small sample. However, we expect a scientifically conducted survey would provide similar results.

Putting an End to Terror

The news media have really gone over the top with the terror reporting in the wake of the shootings in France. So far over the top, that it reeks of propaganda, and excuse to further curtail the rights and privacy of the common man, or, worst of all, a false flag in advance of global marshal law.

As a result, Radio InfoWeb has taken the extreme measure of halting news broadcasts until the terrorists (the governments and news media) stop it already with the harping on alleged terrorist threats.

What we’ll do in addition is prepare newscasts with the propaganda and terrorism removed, and in the interests of transparency and full disclosure, we’ll note in these newscasts exactly what was removed, but without all the fear mongering. These terror-free newscasts will be broadcast on a reduced schedule.

Just say “no” to the buzz kill of incessant fear mongering and propaganda. Listen to Radio InfoWeb!

In the meantime, we urge the mainstream news media to “get a grip”, and suggest that Donald Trump buy-out “ISIS”, and become an American hero (LOL).

P.S. Democracy Now! will continue to run at its scheduled time, 2pm ET weekdays.

UPDATE: The intense fear-mongering subsided after about two and a half weeks, and we were able to return to a normal news schedule. Low-level fear-mongering continues, of course, as part of the War on Citizens.

It Don’t Mean a Thing if it Don’t Make that Ding

Apologies to Duke Ellington.

You might have heard a new sound on the main program stream… “click ding”. It’s a new feature, and it sounds at :59 minutes past the hour in the morning and during the day (New York Time). It should reach your ear somewhere between :00 and :01 (after buffering at the server and your receiving device).

Because the main stream is programmed as a “super station” for people who like to keep a buzz on, we know you may have issues with keeping track of time. I know I do sometimes. Maybe even more often than that. I can get lost in work, in space, or both. It’s OK, Radio InfoWeb is on it. During the morning and afternoon, there are plenty of time checks, and the “ding” should help too, especially during those long sets. When you hear it, look up and if your clock doesn’t indicate the top of the hour, then what you’re hearing has gotten out of sync with real time. If you care (it’s OK if you don’t), you can resync by stopping the stream (not pausing), and then starting. If you’re listening through a web browser, you might have to refresh the page, or perhaps even close out the tab or window, and come all the way back in. It’s just a matter of how your browser handles audio streaming.

What’s a “super station? Glad you asked. It’s a classification that developed during the golden days of terrestrial (that is, not Internet) radio. A “superstation” is a station that “does it all” – News, Music, Time, Weather, Features, Public Service, and whatever else listeners might find handy. As I mentioned above, Radio InfoWeb’s main stream is programmed as a super station for people who like to keep a buzz on.

If “super” isn’t so “super” for you, then try tuning into Radio InfoWeb World. That’s a stream with the same music programming as the main stream, only minus all the “super station” stuff. It’s a little less lively, and it’s not tuned to the time of day (in New York City). It does have (approximately) hourly newscasts though, albeit from a darker and more questionable source (the US Government). This feed was also designed as a convenient pick-up and filler-inner for pirate or other terrestrial radio stations. Cool, huh?

On the other hand, we put the max TLC into the “main stream” including every effort to keep the fidelity as high as possible (so we won’t kill your buzz by paining your ears that way). The new 128/192K Vorbis stream does just that. Sweetness for your ears.

Thanks for listening! If you’d like to contact us, all you have to do is listen. The info is given out regularly for those who care.

See you ’round the Galaxy!

Listen Links in Asia

If you’re located in or near Asia, you can stream Radio InfoWeb local to Asia (Tokyo, Japan) for a better listening experience, and fewer glitches. The bits and bytes don’t have to travel as far, and so there are fewer potholes on the digital road between you and our radio manna. The following links will work depending on your browser. Newer is better! If no players appear; click on the title. If that fails, go to the “How to Listen” page, linked above. More…

Testing a higher-fi stream…

We’re testing a higher-fi stream. You’re welcome to enjoy it too! It will become permanent in coming days.

It should be no problem on Android. On Windows or Mac, you may need to install the LAME CODECS (there are other ways to add Ogg/Vorbis as well). On iOS we suggest using the TuneIn player (which has the CODEC), and entering the URL (below) as a Bookmark or Favorite. The stream is in Vorbis format, at a bit rate of 192K. Vorbis is much more musical sounding than MP3 or AAC streaming CODECs. However, if your ears aren’t that sensitive, the regular MP3 stream may be fine. Most of us at Radio InfoWeb are musicians, so we’re picky about these things.
