Moving Steadily Forward

We continue to make exciting “behind the scenes” progress prior to launching our new classical music online streaming radio service.

Our music library has grown from 25,000 tracks, and now we are just under 31,000 tracks (30,940 to be precise).

That is good, and many of the latest 6,000 additions are of music we don’t already have several versions of in our library, so we are building up a wider range of music – this will be helpful especially when we start doing listener request programs!

Even more exciting is awaiting us in early September.  We’re about to add another massive library of music tracks from the Pristine Classical Audio library – this is an extraordinary resource of over 1,200 “LP equivalent” recordings.  That will give us a great boost on our way to 50,000 tracks total.

The best part of this is that these recordings represent some of the absolutely finest performances of the 20th century, and in many cases are exclusive rarities not found anywhere else.  These have been lovingly restored by Pristine Audio and due to their balancing and adjusting, they are of much higher quality than one would normally expect from historical recordings.

We have also negotiated a win-win partnership with Pristine for the future, enabling us to share this music with you on a regular basis, and we’ll be pleased to ensure it is prominently featured among the selections we play.

In other great news, we believe we have come up with a good way forward in terms of providing announcer support for our programming, but we’re still keen to find more announcers to help us present the best of classical music to the world.  Please let us know if you’d like to be considered.  The pay is terrible, but the personal reward and satisfaction is enormous!

We are hoping for October to be our “go live” date for the alpha type testing of our service.
