Facesplat for BSR

Facebook, can't live with it... can't live without it... can't deploy chemical weapons...

So, we have two Facebook groups for BSR. This has been true for quite a while, and I've forgotten how that came to be. At some point I renamed them with an "A" and "B" prefix so I could remember to post to both of them.

One of the staph suggested it was time to consolidate them. So I started sprucing up the larger of the two lists (A) and asked folks on the other list (B) to move over.

Our FB home going forward is at https://www.facebook.com/groups/bombshelterradio/

FB has a huge raft of issues, and frankly BSR is only there because it does help us get the word out. However, never fear... BSR will continue to pick on FB at every amusing opportunity.

Cheers,
Illya

Getting ready for our first show

Good day! Tomorrow at 8PM US/Eastern time is our first show of the new season. Here are a few reminders on things you should consider doing in preparation to enjoy the show. The primary place for station news, schedules and information is the website  http://bomb.shelter.radio.am/ and the blog  https://bsr-rants.blogspot.com/ . During the show our listeners, DJs, and station administration folks gather in a "chat room" on slack. Join us on slack at https://bombshelterradio.slack.com/ . If you need at invite to the slack instance, click here . Make sure you have a music client that can read an Icecast mp3 stream (M3U filetype). The VLC Media Player is an excellent choice if you don't already have something installed. The server is located at  http://bombshelternewsroom.com:8000/ . WinAmp and iTunes also work well.  We play the game Cthulhu Dice in the slack instance during most broadcasts. You can find the rules on the Stev

What will you use to listen to BSR?

So, in about seven days BSR will be back on the air. For some folks, connecting to BSR will be old hat. The server is in the same location it was during our last million broadcasts, and they already have a streaming application they are familiar with. For others, this may be a new experience (and if so, welcome aboard!) or they need a refresher. Rather than try a one size fits all tutorial just yet, I figured I would start with some basic questions. What listening tool would you like to use? (e.g. iTunes) What operating system are you on? (e.g. Windows) This will help us develop a few tutorials to get folks started. Please let us know in the comments. And now, your moment of zen… https://twitter.com/VirginAustralia/status/1118760531618172928 Cheers, Illya PS: In theory this should post automatically to the slack channel as well. It is interesting to see the difference between a tool that encourages collaboration (slack), and one that is a closed system (faces
