NEWS & EVENTS
New Listen Page
2014 was certainly a hectic year for us as we had moved the studio, had to switch license providers due to restrictions and limitations by the copyright royalty board and we had countless problems with our listener page. However, 2015 looks promising. In our haste we made some bad choices and locked our selves into a contract which kept us from changing our listener page. The good news is that contract has now expired. We have made some changes, hope you like them. We also have upgraded our operating system (so long Win XP, you served us well) and upgraded our studio software to the latest version which gives us additional capabilities freeing up some time for our PDs.
Missing Some 80s?
Every once and a while we get a request for a song that we don't have already ripped off the LP, 8-Track or cassette, which causes us to make a mad dash down to the 80s Vault so we can hook up the patch cables and get it ready to play for you. If you know of an 80s song that we aren't playing, but should, then send us an email to 'requests' AT star1079.com and we will get it prep'd for play.
New in 2015
Did you hear KTODD has an 80s show? We are adding it to our line up. Catch it Wednesday's at 8pm. Maybe if he has time, he can also give us a 90s show (seems fair since he already does a 70s show).
Donations in Action
Thanks to your donations we've been able to continue to bring you Totally 80s with Gary King well into 2015. Unlike most shows it does not come to us freely and we hope to continue bringing you this much requested show through out 2015. While we do run some advertising breaks, it does not fully pay for the cost of running the station. That means we reach into our pockets at the end of each month and pay for bandwidth, licensing royalties, and streaming servers to keep this station running 24x7. In other words, we don't make a profit. We also discovered that our UPS has given up the ghost and our studio equipment is well over 10 years old. Long over due for upgrades to our physical hardware. Want help out? Let us introduce you to the STAR1079 Tip Jar.
