Hey guys, I've made a little website. There is a streaming version, and a downloadable one(and now, a Podcast too).

Pretty bland for now, but I'll keep working on it.
Update: Podcast done! Subscription link is on the site!

If you don't want that crappy putfile stuff, I'd be happy to make a little homepage on some hosting I have.

I like it so far, but I do agree that you need to speak with more confidence and a little louder would really help it stand out. Just imagine what an actual radio announcer would sound like and try to emulate that.

I'm setting up an m3u streaming setup, file hosting, and I'm sure a podcast would be possible.
I'll see what I can do.

I can make this WAY better, with a live stream, and actual Dj's. Through SHOUTCast and Winamp. Its just everyone who wants to listen would have to get Winamp. But thats not hard.

I personally think the mp3+m3u+podcast(the stuff I'm working on) option is fine for now.
Forcing everybody to get winamp is mundane.
We want this available to everybody.

Go to my site...I know for a fact it works on a Mac, I've got one too.
http://star.walagata.com/w/crg23/

If anybody would like to help contribute towards spicing up the page in terms of some HTML goodies, that would be cool.

Btw, podcasting is coming along...I'm almost done, but I'm getting some errors. Hopefully I'll be able to finish by tonight sometime.

^^ I haven't looked at the page yet, but i do some webdesigning with photoshop, html, and css. Sometimes I use flash, but flash is too unreliable - ill look at the page and see if anything I can do

Yeah I know it's on there, but it's different.

But it's cool though I've already talked with gtr.
#24
We should make a UG magazine kind of thing - I've seen people do them online. We could "interview" some amazing musicians on UG, give info about the latest gear thats out (or most asked about), we could do a lot.
#25
^Lets get the radio down first...
Adding some of that junk in the radio show might be cool though.
Can you do anything web design wise?
It's pretty crap now.

a lot of radio stations have daily or weekly specials that they do. something like that might be cool. i know you had news and UG news, but maybe an interview or something would be neat. maybe like 'the mods message - a weekly message from the mods of your favorite forum.' im sure you can come up with something better, but something that has a catchy name and is something to draw people in. then maybe some interviews about anything music related; gear, playing tips, recording ideas, etc. you know, just something to get another segment in there.
#27
^Good thinking.

UG news was a bit lame this time...probably in the future we'll have stuff like:
"Early last week Cas created SilentDeftones cocksucking forum, a forum dedicated to exclusively spam. Unfortunately the forum was closed soon after."
Just little bits, nothing really important.
For Music news, it could just be a little summary of what shows up on UG's news page over the week.
Good idea with the "Mods Message" lol. I've been working on coming up with some little jingles, I'll make one for "Mods Message" for sure.

And yeah, more other general content would be cool too.


And a new announcement...I finally got the Podcast working! Woohoo!
For now, go into iTunes, click on the "Advanced" tab, then "Subscribe to Podcast." From there, just type "star.walagata.com/w/crg23/ugradiopodcast.xml" into the box and you should be good to go!

I'll work on coming up with a better system as soon as I can. The Podcast info will be posted on the site ASAP too, hopefully with a better subscription system.

EDIT:
Podcast is up on the site, with a one click subscription setup. I reccomend going to http://www.star.walagata.com/w/crg23/ and simply clicking on the link to subscribe.

Peace!

I did some html stuff, it kinda sucks because I suck at html, but its better than nothing. It just has a blue background and a marquee.

I'm sure a real web designer person will make some awesome thing later.

Im a quite accomplished web designer, I could make something up.


Go for it!

We don't need anything complex or anything, just one page will work fine. I'd like to keep all of it in one folder too, so if you could keep it all in one directory that would be nice.

maybe i'll talk to the mods to try to get it on the hompage somehow, and to guitarfan, ther'll be a new episode for you to listen to every monday. and also, when you guys try to listen to the podcast do you get the page where it says in the headline "this page cannot be displayed", or is it just me who gets it?

We were trying to get a UG Bass Podcast up over in the bass forum, but I guess you guys beat us to it

Nice job. Kudos to That_Pink_Queen.

Only complaint is the announcer voice is really kind of quiet.
