WOXY, wtf?
« on: July 09, 2004, 10:36:35 PM »

Am I listening to WOXY right now?  Can it be?  I mean there are WOXY commercials and everything.  Is this an old stream?  

Those of you that have iTunes, check it out.

yeah, apparently they were testing out the stream (according to the 97x boards), but it's offline now.

wish I hadn't missed this blessed preview! :(

It was nice, but only as confirmation that the station is really coming back.

The streaming starts Monday anyway so if you missed it, no big deal.  MONDAY will be the big deal.  Can't wait!

at 12:30 pm on Saturday, I'm hearing The Cure's Fascination Street from RVA's link above.   Wooo!

check that... It's been over 15 minutes and I'm still hearing it.  I keep hearing the feed seem to skip or something, and at first it seemed like it was just a break in the stream or whatnot, but now I realize that it has to be that it's rewinding itself/replaying itself.  As much as I enjoy the FS riff, after 15 minutes it is beginning to grind on me.

oh well.  I'm still pumped for Monday.

You're right.  I just checked I'm getting it too.  

The FS repeat isn't that exciting, but what is interesting is it looks like they might be adding song info. to the feed as well (so you don't have to open the what's playing window).  

Right now it just says "ArtistHere-WhatSong" though.

It would be similar to SomaFM's song recognition format.

I have to be patient, as I haven't been able to access this stuff. I'm extremely excited to hear WOXY again, when I get home from work on Monday! It's bloody great, isn't it?!

Oh dear, I seem to be developing a sore throat and a blocked-up nose.....

Crumbs, I hope this doesn't mean I'll have to take the day off work on monday, due to my pending cold. That would be a crying shame!

Edited to say: Good luck, you!
