Big 8 internet station has launched

Post by non-anon bob » Wed Jul 04, 2018 8:44 am

My buddy, Charlie O'Brien, and his radio friends launched a GREAT new streaming internet station yesterday, 7/3/18...playing hits from the 60's and 70's, along with Classic Big 8 jingles, spot ads, and liners. Reminiscent of the original launch of The Big 8 fifty-one years ago! :hat https://www.facebook.com/Big8CKLW/photo ... 04/?type=3

Is this done out of the States or out of Canada. If it's out of the States, as soon as it gets popular their royalty rates will go up and up and up and until they have to cease operation. Great system we have here, eh?

riggs, as Charlie lives in the Windsor, Ontario, area, I'm quite sure that the stream originates from Canada and the content is produced in Canada. He investigated royalty issues before launching the station.

Have been listening to it all afternoon while smoking and grilling.

Love the music. Was kind of odd to hear two airchecks with the temp at 29 degrees. :)

20/20 news would be cool.

Loved the old comercials. Morallis!

Well, 29º Celsius would be 84º F, so not really so far off :)
