Streams are up!


Just yesterday I was able to fix and reconnect the studios to the internet! Thus, each studio is live again, unless otherwise noted. That said, the Remedy has been dead air since roughly midnight. That is some sort of software problem or a student DJ did not turn the automation back on. Regardless, an easy fix once I am up in the station today.

Unable to Stream?


Yes, sadly, no one will be able to listen to the stream for a while as the internet line to the part of the building we at WIDB.net broadcast from is dysfunctional. As engineer I looked into a few solutions today, but unfortunately there is nothing I can do beside put in a maintenance request. This was done earlier today and I am hoping for a quick turn around. But I wouldn’t hold my breath if I were you.

I will post another update once the problem has been resolved. Until then, I apologize for the inconvenience.
