I'll be straight with you, I've always wanted to have my own radio station. And before the internet existed (or at least, before I knew it existed), this want manifested itself in a bit of an obsession with making mix tapes. Well, I've now been aware of the internet for many years… and below you'll find some of my attempts of merging that mix tape obsession with something that kind of resembles a radio station.
24 Hour Stream Of ‘Mix Tape Radio’ Now Available…
or not… I guess Radionomy has shut this station down due to not enough daily listeners :(
Unfortunately, for the less than 130 hours/day of you that did listen to this 24hr stream of HI54LOFI approved tuneage… the station has been shut down by Radionomy (the service that the station was hosted on). I guess that means I need to have a think about whether I'll be putting in the time to get another station up and running, and if so, whether to use Radionomy again for it (although, from past looking into running a station, the alternatives to not using Radionomy are even more work and really expensive, especially when compared to the $0 price tag that came with Radionomy). Until then, I guess you can get your fix through listening to one of the many episodes of the Mix Tape Radio show (and/or a few more options below). Bummer.
Other Mix Tape Radio "Channels"
Every 2 weeks I make a 1 hour mix tape of some of my favourite tunes, which you can stream on Mixcloud & download on iTunes.
There's a lot of great music on Bandcamp, so I like to use Minilogs to keep track of the stuff I like. Which makes for a nice radio.
Every now and again I put a little mix tape together over on the wonderful radio alternative that is 8tracks.
I've been making playlists on Spotify (and continuing to add to them). If Spotify's in your country, press play.
