Turns out I wasn't crazy - there were, in fact, problems with my cable connection, and a very knowledgeable tech from Cablevision helped to figure them out. Result: reliable uploads and updates to the web station, and a solid launching pad to once again build more and better stuff into the station. (And thank heavens all this crud happened during the summer when way fewer people are listening, it being the summer and all. Still, if you can tune in
by clicking one of the big buttons above, it'll always help.)
So, we're all updated on our 64k Stereo
and 32k Mono
streams (remember, with an MP3Pro decoder
, the 64k stream comes through in CD quality
, so remember to get one, either as a plug-in for WinAmp
or out-of-the-box with JetAudio
...and for Mac users, there's always Audion
.) A 128k stream
update should soon be available, too, so keep tuning in...
As for our show, this is the first time ever that we've gotten through the summer without repeating shows, and there's yet another tonight at 10pm Eastern
over at 90.5 The Night
, so don't be a stranger...it's the one time during the week you can hear Altrok Radio in your car (assuming you're in central NJ) so if you're heading out for a shindig, tune in along the way. (I'm particularly fond of The Mary Onettes
record that'll be up tonight - and there'll be something from The Jam
, of course.)
By the way, I never did mention the shout-out Matt Pinfield
gave me in his interview in the Asbury Park Press
, and so now I have - and particular thanks to Kelly-Jane Cotter
for agreeing it was worthy of inclusion in the resulting printed profile. It's nice to have your name in the papers without having to rob a bank or something.
Yep, it's true, we're actually back at fighting strength, despite the cold that has me sounding a smidge stuffed-up on tonight's show. Yay, Zicam...
