All New Automation

automation-lionelINTRODUCING!!! AUTOMATION!!!

We are now getting involved in more musical broadcasts, we are now introducing random streams on RCD Radio, one of new ones is called, Automation!

Automation will be a process where we play non stop randomised music from our music library at random times and random days, there is no schedule for this.

The reason this is going to be random is because its all down to availability of the studio and depending on when we can do automation, during automation we plan just to play non stop music, with ads, jingles and voice overs during intervals of songs, we may play anything from jazz, rock, pop, funk, R&B, metal and many more.

The point of automation, is that we can set it so it plays tunes from the library at random, there is no DJ on duty when we are in automation! but there may be someone sitting at the desk, however they may not be in charge of the music, its all happening by itself, therefore, we will not be taking requests.

studio-pic37Although we will be playing all sorts of music, at times, we may only play music from one artist, one genre, or just a selection of genres at times, but we will let you know what sort of music we will be playing.

How? we will always update our Twitter and Facebook when we go Live with automation, we will tweet that we are playing absolutely anything and you can come and check us out on the Live page!

The reason we are starting this little automation process on RCD Radio, is because we want to start broadcasting more, so we can get noticed more and get more people to come and visit us, to see what we are about and to see what sort of shows we have coming up on our schedule.

Visit our new page on automation, which will answer many more questions about what it is and how it works, visit the automation page at http://automation.rcdradio.com

If you have any questions or concerns about automation, please feel free to contact us: http://rcdradio.com/contact

New Website – But we never really wrote about it… Until NOW!

rcdradio-website-screenshot-photoOn Tuesday 23rd April 2013, RCD Radio Re-Launched its brand new designed website! but we never really wrote a blog post about it… until NOW!

So here we go…

Our new website design is sleek, fresh, new and full of more information than the last version of the site, you can now look up specific shows or events on the website, RSVP the events on Facebook directly from our website, have a full studio tour and read what equipment we use in our top of the range studio, watch us Live, on our Live page and get what we are playing Live on the stream in real time, directly from our Live Page.

Schedule

Our brand new schedule is now on our website and will be kept up to date on all of our broadcasts which go on, each event on our schedule also links to the event on Facebook for easy use to RSVP on Facebook, if you RSVP an event on Facebook, you will then know when the upcoming broadcast is coming within that week, therefore, making it so you cannot miss the event.

We will also update each event on the website and on Facebook if it gets cancelled or re scheduled to another date, you will get a notification on Facebook if you have RSVPed if the event is cancelled, rescheduled or if we have some news about the event.

View our schedule by going to http://schedule.rcdradio.com

Shows

Even though we don’t have many shows at this moment of writing on RCD Radio, you can lookup any show we broadcast on RCD Radio from our show page, that includes the NOW! Series, or DJ Lozo’s Mixes. – The idea behind the shows page is that you can view more information about our shows we broadcast, watch past episodes of those shows, plus view pictures and any other YouTube videos related to that show.

Studio

Our top of the range studio specification is now all posted on our website! you can now see from our studio page what equipment we use to make RCD Radio broadcast to you Live! there will be a new blog post about our studio later in the week, but you can always view our studio by going to http://rcdradio.com/studio

RCD Radio Logo RedLive Page

Bigger than before! Our Live page plays host to our main Broadcast on Ustream for RCD Radio, with our Live chat room directly on the right hand side so you can easily chat and see the Live Broadcast, the Live page can also change in real time to show other broadcasts if RCD Radio is not on air at the time.

The Live page now uses a Ajax and jQuery coding and can change feeds at any time that any of the moderation staff decide to, for example, when the main RCD Radio feed is offline and nothing else is going on, we may decide to change the main feed on the Live page to another Ustream feed, YouTube video, Justin Feed or even another iFrame code.

The same Ajax and jQuery system also takes place on the home page and on the sidebar of any page on the entire website, so any of these feeds can change at any time and in real time. – Check out the Live Page at http://live.rcdradio.com

Live Streaming Services – We will be using both Ustream.tv and Justin.tv

RCD RADIO NO LONGER BROADCASTS ON JUSTIN.TV DUE TO ITS SHUTTING DOWN ON AUGUST 5TH 2014 – THIS BLOG POST HOWEVER REMAINS HERE FOR REFERENCE.

Out site launches in just a few weeks now and we have had to decide how and where we are going to stream the RCD Radio Content online.

At this stage we will not be using a shoutcast server as it is currently not in the funds this time round, but we will be using our main services Ustream.tv and Justin.tv as our streaming service for the time being.

 

 

When we go Live at the main RCD Radio Studio the webcam’s will be turned on and there will be a visual experience.

Both the Ustream and Justin feeds will be showing the same visual and audio audio to both services.

As we will have a live page at RCD Radio, we will only be using one feed as our default, we will be mainly using the Ustream feed on the RCD Radio Live page but the Justin.tv option is there for anyone to find on the JTV website, it is so we are using more platforms instead of using one and it may help us reach out to more people this way.

You can join our Ustream.tv crowd and get email notifications when we go live, when we create a new event and reminders when a event is about to start on Ustream.tv, to join the Ustream crowd, go to http://ustream.rcdradio.com

If you have a JTV account, you can follow us on Justin.tv and get notifications when we go live on JTV, to follow us on JTV, go to http://jtv.rcdradio.com

Below are both the Ustream.tv and the Justin.tv feed embed’s
