I say that to people I don't like. I want them to go through all the dopey crap I deal with as I navigate my now 12 year foray into the world of Great Big Radio.
Don't get me wrong. I still love this thing like it's my own 12 year old child. I listen in my car, and I'm still impressed with how many songs I forgot I threw into the playlist. And it's still better than 90% of what's out there, so we're pretty proud.
That said, this week, we got word that Wavestreaming, the people who published and maintained the GBR App for iOS and Android, decided they're going out of business in July and our apps will be rendered inoperable.
So I've officially become an app developer and started working on a brand new app that does what you need it to do...
• When launched, you'll have the choice of BOTH our streams - 32k for wireless and 128k for WiFi.
• Help support GBR by buying the music we play from Amazon or iTunes from our new "Last Ten Played" button.
• GBR's Facebook and Twitter feeds are now part of the menu.
• One-touch calling to our request/comment line 612-HOLYCOW
• One-touch email
We're ironing out the wrinkles and exterminating the bugs, but we're going to have a very cool, very versatile and very easy to use app experience. And isn't that what life is all about?
So. Want to start an online radio station?
