Introducing Culture Greyhound Radio

Hello all,

Today is my 27th birthday. If you don’t know, now you know. In lieu of this amazing, incredible, revolutionary, historical milestone, I am sharing with you a pet project of mine I’ve been working on since March. Although I’m not sure if you’ll have any interest in it after about ten minutes, just know that I enjoy it very much, and that was the intended purpose. If you also enjoy it, hooray! We should be friends.

Culture Greyhound Radio is an Internet radio station broadcasting live from my dining room table on a dusted-off, stickered Toshiba that was just sitting in my closet for about three years. For you radio nerds, I’m currently rocking the latest, licensed version of SAM Broadcaster, my hosting is provided by ViaStreaming, and I’m legally broadcasting under royalty licensing coverage via Loudcity. That’s right. It’s legit. Musicians are getting paid, yo!

I’ve got a lot of programming and production things planned for the station, but for now, it’s playing a pretty current-heavy playlist rotation structure. As far as the music goes, I’m pretty thrilled with it, and I hope you like it too. Know that suggestions and comments are accepted and considered, but most likely ignored. It’s not that I don’t love you, I do, but if I don’t dig a track, it’s not going to play. This is not KTXT reincarnated, this is not KISS FM, this is not The Llano Idea, this is not WOXY 3.0. This is Ben’s station, and likely the only person in the world who will absolutely 100% love it is Ben. That said, criticism is welcome and encouraged.

Listen here on this ugly, soon-to-be changed Loudcity page (I’m required by law to send you here, and the picture as of this point is my cat, who is cute, yes, but if anyone wants to generously design a logo for me, that would be great). Additionally, I’m working on a page for the station, which you can find at the top of this page in the menu. To use an old-school-Geocities-Internet term, it’s currently Under Construction (insert stick figure with a hard hat on here).

Birthdays are a reason to celebrate, and although I’m keeping the festivities pretty low-key this year due to some current soul-searching and whatnot, nothing lifts my spirits like music: listening to it, writing about it, talking about it, sharing it. And music goes hand-in-hand with another one of my passions: radio. So the logical conclusion here is to connect the two and share it with you, and I truly hope you enjoy it. And thanks for listening.
