Well, today is the big day! Cladrite Radio‘s new stream is launched, and you can start listening right away via the embedded player up above (just under the Cladrite Radio banner). There’s even a button that allows you to open the player in a pop-up window, so you can continue sto listen as you make your way around our website (or other sites, for that matter).
You’ll also find Cladrite Radio in the Tune-in Radio app, which allows you to easily listen to us on mobile devices, such as smart phones and tablets. We’ll be adding our stream to other services soon, too, and we’ll share that news with you when we do.
There’s also a direct URL you can use to access the stream: http://listen.radionomy.com/cladriteradio. You can use it to listen via iTunes (File > Open Stream) or your web browser.
We’re still familiarizing ourselves with the ins and outs of our new provider—their service works rather differently than Live365 did—so there may be a glitch or two along the way (we’ve not yet managed to add the classic advertisements our listeners so enjoy, for example, but we’ll soon have that solved)—but over time, our broadcast will come to resemble more and more the Cladrite Radio you know and love. For now, our mix of songs isn’t as extensive as you’ve to expect, but it will grow day by day and eventually our library of toe-tapping tunes will be even larger than it was at Live365.
What can you do to help? Listen just as often as you can and for as long as possible. Our new stream provider has listener-hours minimum, and we want to reach that right out of the gate so there’s no risk of us losing our stream. It wasn’t an issue at Live365—they didn’t have a minimum, and they had a large built-in audience of listeners—but this time around, we’re building our audience from the ground up a bit more, and we need everyone who had enjoyed us in the past to listen now and also to help spread the word. Share our station on Facebook and Twitter; there’s a button on the player itself for social sharing, or you could always share this post to Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Google+, Tumbler, you name it.
Word of mouth is absolutely vital to us, so if you know anyone, young or old, who likes the kind of music we play, please let them know about us.
We thank you for your loyal listenership through the years, and we look forward to sharing this wonderful music with you for many years to come.
