The 2011 Listener Survey

by on Apr.25, 2011, under Station Update

Okay folks I’m turning the tables and making a request….

I need you to take 3 or 4 minutes and fill out the listener survey at the bottom of the page.

If you listen I want your opinion.

I know most of you listen for FREE online, especially when you travel or play video games or work from home running your home business from your computer!

The last time a survey was taken, the data indicated that most of you were female between the ages of 25 and 65, listened to WBPM NetRADIO at work and at home in the bed.

Now that you can listen on your smart phone, ipads and in some cases in your cars I want to know what has changed since then. Please fill out the poll and help me get a clue!

It’s pain free, quick and simple and by filing out the survey you will helping me to continue to promote the music we all love!

It would be huge and I (among a number of other folks who may or may not help me really do some great things) would love to know what you think about the station. Fill out this short survey. After 7 years on the air I think some of you 1200+ listeners has an opinion or two so why not share them with me.

Would you like news on various topics, or how to make money online, things about travel or hotel specials,  health and fitness, more Music or general entertainment news? Or..maybe you want news about electronics or photography. How about access to ebooks or articles on how to do minor things to take care of your car? Whatever …it helps to know what people want… I know, I know..there’s a saying “Give the people what they want and they want it all the time..” that’s cool.

What I get out of all of this..

First, the information you provide would help me to make the station even better from a listener’s point of view. I have additional DJs standing by ready to come online and need to know what they need to know to play for you.

Second, this project costs a pretty penny. Not to mention the music costs, there are licensing costs, equipment costs (the next mixer upgrade is already at the $2,000 mark!) and in order to take this station to where I want it to be this site has to make  “moolah” – “ducats” – “dinero” – ” cheese” – “bus fare” – “eggs and bacon” … (scratch that…that was breakfast). So, with the information you provide “I” (or) “We” (but really) “Me” will be able to know which way to flow…

Or it could convince me to hang it up.

So…What do you say?

Takes me back (again) …

by on Feb.22, 2011, under Station Update, The Musings

Takes me back to then…

“All these goings on over in Africa…”

Well…

just do what you do but do it right…(isn’t that a song from somewhere?)

“Huh?”

northern-africa

It’s like Deja vu all over again…

…you say? Here’s a clue. Check your maps …. Don’t forget Sudan..both of them… (okay shoot the map guy!)

#Libya #Tunisia #Egypt … Imagine that…(Good luck people)

(Still feelin’ woozy? Here is why I feel it’s like deja vu all over again. Come back when you’re finished.)

So remember kiddies…let these times be a lesson. All it takes is to remove the pebble out from under the boulder to get it to start  rolling downhill. Oh, and never buy Texas from a Cowboy (remember that cut?).

Can you draw a line between those places on the map and Wisconsin or more recently Texas and relate? Can you see how one group  is fighting to hold on while others are trying to get a hold? Do you understand the machinations behind the opposition to those movements is about power while the protagonists are fighting for the right?

Well the Isley’s said it first. “You’ve got to fight the powers that be.”

While the Temps shook their heads muttering It’s all a “Ball of Confusion…”

While you contemplate what in the world I am talking about ..know this…

I’ve added more tracks into the rotation so if you tune in you will hear additional amazing sets created from deep within the catacombs of WBPM NetRADIO. There’s House, Jazz, Hip Hop, R&B, World Beat, Deep House Grooves, Chill Beats, Reggae and much more from across the planet. Get it while it’s hot!

Later!

DJ

P.S.: 2nd Chance part 1. This mess is playing out like a Billy Preston record. What you’ve read is a post from about two years ago. Now step back into real time and ask yourself “that on the radio again?” Click and see why I say what I say when I said it today.

C-c-c-c-c-changes (Pt. 2)

It’s been a real busy kind of month so far. Here’s where things stand as of now.

Seems some automaton in the Live365 infrastructure took the money needed to renew the package I had before I could stop them. I was hoping to get a different package that was less costly. Naturally when it happened I felt a “sting”. Well, I got busy trying to make up the loss. Not quite there yet. But here’s the plan. I am still working to move to a new package. In preparation for the change, new playlists are being uploaded (right now actually). The old playlists were 64K MP3PRO formatted files. The files being uploaded right now are 96K Mp3PRO files. What’s the difference? Basically better sound quality (Imagine that …right?).

New tracks are also in the pipeline. They are liable to turn up here very soon. So keep listening.

Thanks to new listeners in (in no particular order!):

Houston & Luftkin, Texas; Phoenix, Arizona; Anaheim, South Gate, Beverly Hills & Glendale, California; Alamoosa, Colorado; Edmund, Oklahoma; Evansville, Indiana; Bloomington & Chicago Illinois; Pittsburgh & Philadelphia PA.; Atlanta, Marietta & Lawrenceville, Georgia; Rock Hill SC; Charlotte; Washington,DC; S. Plainfield, NJ; New York City (Hi You Guys!); Albany, New Hartford & White Plains, NY; Brocton, Mass; Oromocto, Canada; Cusco, Peru; La Paz, Bolivia; Bogota & Cucuta, Columbia; Cancun Mexico (I could really use a trip there about now..how about you?); Basildon & London UK; Hoorn, Netherlands; Prague; Zurich, Vienna, Madrid, Ljubljana & Radovljica, Slovenia; Budapest; Warsaw & Rzeszow, Poland; Klaipeda, Lithuania; Moscow; Istanbul; Athens; Bangalore; Bangkok; Cebu City, Phillipines, Perth, AU and last but in no way least Sapporo Japan.

I am deeply thankful to all of you for listening. Please listen often…now…

GO BUY A T-SHIRT (or something) Here !!!

DO OVAHHH!!!!

by on Apr.14, 2010, under Station Update, The Musings

Dennis Ferrer @ Movement 2009, 5/24/2009

Sometimes even I get caught up in the mad dash it seems….

Me!! Mr. Laidback Take It Slow As It Flow….

I was listening to my most recent post and discovered to my SHOCK a problem with some of the mixes and sound quality settings I was using for the latest program. (If you didn’t notice..GOOD!) Anyhow, I wanted to rip it down off the server immediately but was unable to. The situation sat on my brain like a ticked off elephant all day.

Finally when I got in I decided I couldn’t take it any more. (I was listening while checking e-mail and such).

I powered up the gear and got to work. What came out was an even better set (I think so anyway) that sounds a LOT better mixwise and sound quality wise (we won’t even go into it … let’s just say a setting had been uhh “omitted” causing WBPM NetRADIO to sound like all the rest  of the internet broadcasters).

So the set is actually different in that there are more artists, more tracks, BETTER mixes and it sounds GREAT. Who is in the set? Hmmph…. you read that earlier post of a previous playlist? You want me to go through the agony of typing something like that again? You WRONG!!!!!

I will say this, the set is tight, it flows as I intended it to and there is a variety of sound in there. I did reach back and drop in a cut by Shiela E. I dropped others but I am getting “typer’s cramp”.

Hope your world is not spinning out of control and if so…all we can do is hold on tight.

Yanno?

(P.S.: That is NOT me in the picture!! That’s the great Dennis Ferrer! Oh and that set? It’s on now…)

We’re Baaaaaaaaaaack (almost)

by on Apr.03, 2010, under Station Update, The Music, The Musings, The Other Stuff

Hi folks,

Yeah the site changed! The need to do a quick overhaul became painfully evident while uploading some pictures for you today. I discovered a trashed database install. So…I figured now is as good as time as any to drop a new site on you. This one will be a little easier to move through. I will continue to add more goodies as the hours goes by so come back and don’t forget to subscribe so that you get the freebies okay?

Peace,

DJ Whatshisname (that’s me!)
