Stream Is Back Up – But We Are No Longer Available via iTunes

After being moved to a different server by my music stream provider – the radio stream is back up – but we are no longer available via iTunes.

However, the address for the Choice Classic Rock stream had to be changed. This resulted in some of the third party web sites having the wrong streaming address – which no longer play anything. I am in the process of updating all the radio station directories on the internet with the new streaming address – but this is a long painstaking process.

Even worse – I contacted iTunes and informed them of the change in the music stream server address – but received an email saying that they were “no longer adding or modifying Internet stations” in the iTunes app. So if you are used to listening to us through iTunes on the Internet Radio preset that was there – it will no longer work. There is no money in it for iTunes I suppose – so they have stopped support for internet radio stations in the iTunes app.

My apologies to anyone who listened through iTunes (I know there were a lot of you) – but these circumstances are beyond my control. However, having said that – you can manually type the music stream address into iTunes and listen to the station by following these steps:

  1. Start the iTunes app.
  2. Go to the File menu and select Open stream.
  3. Type (or copy and paste) the following:  http://bb23.sonixcast.com:20012  into the URL field.
  4. Click the OK button.

Thanks for your continued support.
