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 Steve Jackson Games website.


OK, at BSR we are aren't big fans of Facebook. We will save the tirades for the ranting part of the show. Having said that, we recognize a lot of our listeners are on Facebook and we would like to keep them informed. You can find us on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/groups/bombshelterradio/.

As always, we hope you join us and that you enjoy the show.


Cheers,
Illya

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
