Back In Business At A New Location!


Well, that was not a fun experience!  As detailed in prior posts, our Classic Alternative/New Wave internet station has moved offshore.  Not physically but virtually.  On January 31st, our previous stream provider Live365 went dark, forcing it's broadcasters to find new streaming services.  Fortunately, Radionomy.com, based in Belgium and financed in part by media conglomerate Vivendi allows live streaming (our normal mode of operation).  Live streaming is important to Alt Class X since it allows us to program live from our studios as opposed to many stations which play a static playlist.  Our stream is also available "Stateside" via Tunein.com (Tunein Radio).

After much time in the studio, re-cutting station IDs and commercial breaks plus porting 1000 song files which will never be played on air (but are required as a backup), we are back to a "normal'" schedule.  It will be some time before our listenership is back to it's previous level (#1 rated for our genre of music) but we are already attracting listeners from all areas of the U.S., Canada and Europe! I hate to beg (but I will).  If you happen to like our type of music, drop by for a listen and share our new address with your like-minded friends.  Our current song library includes the likes of Elvis Costello, The Specials, The English Beat, Joy Division, The Clash, The Ramones, Devo, Psychedelic Furs, Erasure, The Police, Patti Smith and many more.  So drop by our lot, kick the tires, take it for a spin.  See you down the road!
