"Lestercast" Shoutcast Radio
I have begun streaming audio through a Shoutcast server, audible with Winamp. These will be sporadic at first but more frequent and continuous in the coming days.
In the first test streams and in tonight's (Friday), I am looping the entire album, "X-mas," the first by my old band, Radio:Tahiti (which will get its own MySpace page soon), originally released 23 December 1992 and remastered with bonus tracks in 2005. In the near future I'll throw in more back catalog from R:T as well as Distaster, Broom Room Annex and other original things I've done over the years. This will also be a way to promote the new Distaster music I'll have out in a matter of days.
I thought the exact link for every cast would be different but I was able to tune right in to tonight's with the one I did as a test last night. If this is true for machines outside of my own wifi network, which I think it ought to be, then you can click here
. Otherwise, you can search for keyword "lestercast"
or, better yet, if you're using Internet Explorer and have the Winamp toolbar installed, you can type "lestercast" into the search line and select "Shoutcast Radio" for your search engine.
Rep. Jo Ann Davis Passes
I don't know if this is a record year for members of Congress passing but it certainly seems like it. This time it's Rep. Jo Ann Davis (R-VA)
, who continued to actively serve even as she struggled with breast cancer. Lesterblog extends condolences and best wishes to her family, friends and constituents.
BTW, this is a repost because I was unable to delete a lengthy and racist crackpot comment that was completely unrelated to the post. Comment moderation has now been enabled.
Site Meter Removed
I've been slow to learn about this. Apparently news of Site Meter sending spyware cookies
is real, so I am now removing it from all of my blogs. I never want to facilitate any kind of malware problems for my visitors.
