- Fred Stiening said Perhaps the name will be B&Lmont
- TheChairman said Because of it’s location, Belmont would become the first big ‘straw’ drawing water from the Central Arizona Project (CAP) aqueduct. Perhaps it was a strategic choice in that regard,...
- Fred Stiening said How would water rights work with a brand new city?
- Fred Stiening said I may have one pocket radio in a box somewhere. I did have a dual casette DAK radio from the 1970s, but hadn’t used it in probably 20 years – it had D cell batteries left inside, so you can im...
- Parrott said Well I have been looking at radios on ‘e-pay’ again. I was doing an inventory and I couldn’t find a clock radio. Oh well. I remember a poll I think asked how many radio you have in...
- Parrott said Charles Kuralt wasn’t that old when he died . Bummer. I remember him interviewing someone down in Rose Hill, NC about that Frying Pan they have, and the guy in Minnesota that was building a new...
- Parrott said Killer. I never knew that the streams were that complected. I guess they must stay ahead of the russians ? best parrott
- Fred Stiening said It gets even more complicated, which I learned the hard way. Using DNS games, server123.xyz.com may return a different IP address (or more) depending on your geographic location and/or internet provi...
- TheChairman said Not to be confused with Bellemont, AZ (on old Route 66)… the location of Gates’ Belmont city is more than a bit curious. It’s a stone’s throw from the nation’s largest e...
- CC1s121LrBGT said Agreed. There are complexities on multiple levels. The verb “streams” can be associated with the owner of the content, the owner of the radio station, the owner of the streaming service pr...
- Fred Stiening said Your assumption is correct, however someone else may still be doing the streaming. If you have a server named streaming123.xyz.com, that server can be run by a third party, but from a security persp...
- Fred Stiening said It used to be a big thing in deer season in Michigan in the 1980s that the state PBS network would visit the DNR checkin centers where hunters brought their deer in for inspection and the catch was hu...
- Parrott said hi Fred, you know, Vince didn’t ask that. That’s a good question. I hope they are at least doing that. The problem will be spending the money for the processing of deer carcass. Its a lot...
- Fred Stiening said Lansing Michigan had that arrangement where the city government heated the downtown using the steam from the city owned coal fired electric plant. It no longer met EPA requirements and was decommissi...
- Fred Stiening said Are they donating the deer to homeless shelters or just burying them in mass graves at the landfill?
- Fred Stiening said Spanish Broadcasting System just received their Going Concern warning from their auditors indicating Chapter 11 will happen if they can’t restructure their debt. Revenues were down 9%. That might b...
- Fred Stiening said In 2015, WTVI (the local PBS TV station) sponsored the creation of the Charlotte Broadcasters Hall of Fame, whose inaugural class included Billy Graham and Charles Kurault. It appears that the first...
- CC1s121LrBGT said Back in the 1970s, I would sometimes listen to Radio Moscow and they did a story on heating in their capital city. The electricity generating plants in the US mostly heat rivers or lakes or release s...
- CC1s121LrBGT said The Redeye Radio Show is quite good and seems to get better with time. There is no reason for anyone to miss it due to personal schedules – it is available on demand (what iHeart would call a po...
- CC1s121LrBGT said “Weeeell, doggies!” I think all the Salem stations are available in the iHeart app but they are actually streams by streamtheworld.com . Most of the iHeart owned stations are now streamed by i...

- Parrott said $240 million eh ? That’s more than ‘Jed Clampett’. Speaking on streaming, the Global Star radio network is using ‘Voscast’ now. its like S2.Voscast.com then a numbe...
- CC1s121LrBGT said Per this list of the top 10 wealthiest talk radio hosts, #10 is Tom Joyner at $30 million, #1 is Howard Stern at $550 million. I’m no socialist, but just as it was clear that overpaying for ...
- Fred Stiening said The stock in Salem and Townsquare is at a 52 week low in a stock market that has been going up. Maybe K-Love should sell stock.

- Parrott said Hey Countess: Did you see the nice story on CBS Sunday morning about the restaurant in Philadelphia that gives it profits to a church mission that feeds homeless people ? It was Rooster soup co. Me...
- Fred Stiening said Triton is just the name of the folks who gather the statistics. Most of the companies that were doing streaming have gone out of business. Triton Media has a subsidiary that does streaming, but th...
- Linda S. said Exactly how do you get Triton to provide streaming? As a dunce, I don’t know how this works.
- TheChairman said Indeed. Harnessing years of white guilt paid off. In 2008, Team Obama wanted him nominated by acclamation; some of Team Clinton wanted a roll-call vote, to reflect her “18 million cracks” in the glass...

- briand75 said Dems don’t do anything spontaneous. Everything has a framework and a plan. Ms. Brazile may be shoving Hillary out, but Rush had the notion that she is moving Michelle Obama in. 2020 could be an...
- TheChairman said Ms. Brazile has seen enough to realize the best thing for her to do was go public, as a sort of insurance policy against sleeping on the grass in Fort Marcy Park.
- Parrott said Killer, I didn’t realize that about the iheart or that they stream in such large chunks. You are right , it is getting harder to listen to the stations on VLC or away from the app they chose...

- briand75 said I had a CompuServe account and I lived not far from the CompuServe campus in Ohio. Missed opportunities killed it off – too bad. CompuServe was a decent world in which to live and communicate. A...
