From today we shall be streaming 24/7 using a brand new server, but this is not an official launch, right now we shall be testing the new server to make sure everything is in working perfect order, the new stream shall not be shown on our Live page until its official launch, this is known as a test transmission.

This will be our first public broadcast on the new Vaughn Live streaming platform, we would love to know what you think about it.

Our official planned launch for the 24/7 streaming shall be on Wednesday 1st October 2014 from 6pm on our Live page, but for now we are doing a test transmission and we want you to be involved.

What’s happening at RCD Radio? What’s New?

studio-pic26RCD Radio 24/7 Streaming
The reason RCD Radio is currently offline and has been for a few months is due to the lack of high quality equipment, I will not stream in poor quality, I refuse, with this being said I would like to announce my aim.

However, on its way is a brand new Dell Precision T3400 machine which shall be used as a server to support a 24/7 Live Music Stream, it was ordered early yesterday morning and is expected to arrive on Friday 5th September, once we have it up and running, you will be the first to know by our blog.

IdleChat IRC
Our chat used to be held on the iPocalypse IRC network, but recently, iPocalypse has merged in to one great big giant ball of fire with another network (Known as DamDevil IRC) and is now called IdleChat, what does this mean to you? absolutely nothing, the only difference is that the name of the network has changed, you can still use your same old username and password like you always have, this paragraph is a huge shout out to IdleChat! Twitter: http://twitter.com/idlechatirc

DJ Lozo - Wide Shot - Now That's What I Call Music Volume 2Shop
The RCD Radio shop is currently closed while we sort out a new company to print our T-Shirts, you may be able to pre order T-Shirts at some point in the future, but for now, dealing is still going on, we shall update the blog when you can pre order T-Shirts and we shall include it on our Twitter and Facebook pages.

Vaughnlive – Ustream
After hours of considering it, we have decided to switch video streaming platforms for our main stream from Ustream to Vaughn live as Vaughn live meets what we need in order to Live stream, for now though we are going to be giving it a trial run and if it does not turn out as good as we hopped, we shall return back to Ustream, you can check out our stream on Vaughn Live and follow us at http://vaughnlive.rcdradio.com

Justintv
As you may of already heard, Justin.tv shut down in early August and for obvious reasons we do not have any plans to continue with this company, all domains and URL’s to Justin.tv have been removed from our site.

DCB Smart Shirt and Tie Suit Top Hat Smile DJingNew Live Page
We are still working on the Live Page for RCD Radio and it will hopefully be released later next month (October) with some improvements, more about this in a future blog post near the time of the release and a chance for you to properly test it out.

For now, that’s all of our big updates covered for RCD Radio, we shall let you know once our Live 24/7 Broadcast starts, we shall need you to try out our feed for feedback, but more information about that coming later this month.

Please follow us on Twitter and Facebook for updates that don’t make it to our blog, thank you for supporting us and we hope to talk to you very soon.
