May’s Moves

I'm not sure how many more months I can use alliteration in these monthly posts.  But here's an update to you for May complete with alliterative title.  :) Programming Enhancements We still don't have our new music scheduling system in place.  Recognizing that this project is taking longer than we ever expected, and further recognizing that it will be a unknown further amount of time before it is up and […]

April Advances

April has been a month more noted for frustrations than for major leaps forward.  But there have been some positive moves forward that we're very pleased about, too. Two events in particular stand out.  The first one is that we're starting to see steady growth in listeners, particularly after we reached out to a group of potential listeners that we've worked with in other contexts before.  Listener growth is so […]

Marvelous March (the month, not the music)

It has been a busy month in March, so much so that we felt the need to share an update halfway through the month (see Now twice as good)! We've taken a giant step forward with a reformat of our website and - at last - getting a decent player app onto the site to allow you to enjoy our music through your phone and computer, wherever you are.  Let's […]

Now “twice as good”

Well, sort of.  The headline refers to one of the several enhancements we have made over the last couple of weeks.  In total, we see three major points of progress :   1.  (The "twice as good" feature) -  We now have eight hours a day of live presentation, sort of.  David's show from 7am - 11am US Central time is being given an "Encore" performance each evening between 7pm […]

Starting to Give You Live Presented Music

We are inching ever-closer to our goal of providing you with live presenters bringing you the music you love, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and 52 weeks a year.  We now feel able to commit to at least four hours of hosted music every morning (central US time) between 7am and 11am, and possibly extending to noon on some days as an unscheduled bonus.  (Of course the […]

Taking Shape

It is tremendously exciting to see the music streaming starting to become a reality.  A bit like how building a home takes a long time with prep work and framing, but then all of a sudden the walls go up, siding and roof on, and it starts to seem like a real home, we're in that exciting phase too, where we're starting to see the return on our elaborate foundation […]

ARIA now a native feature of all Alexa units

Great news. :)  You can now play ARIA Radio at any time on any Amazon Alexa device.  There's no need to install any special "skill" or remember any special command words.  Just simply say "Alexa, play ARIA Radio" and you'll immediately start to be bathed in the world's finest popular classical music. (To stop the music, just say "Alexa stop".) And wait, there's more.  You can also use ARIA as […]

A Milestone Happily Reached and Passed

We started test streaming in mid-January, and now have music playing, all day every day.  That is a tremendous step forward and we're delighted to have reached this point.  But this is only "the end of the beginning".  There's lots more still to do before we can claim to have achieved the world-class and "best of breed" popular classical music station that is our ultimate aim. We need to "hear" […]

The Puzzle of “Most Popular” Music Lists

Here at ARIA we are very focused on playing you the music you like - in other words, music that is "most popular".  That is a simple-seeming objective, but how to actually do exactly that?  What music do you (and our other listeners) like?  And, beyond that (not) simple question, which pieces of music do you most like, which do you moderately like, and which are ones that, although you […]
