MaccaRadio Off-Air? NO

Postby gillmacca » Mon Sep 15, 2008 6:11 am

Can anyone tell me if they can still here MaccaRadio.
As of this morning, I can't hear it, via the website, link in my media player and a site called radiotime.

In our area we had a power outage due to the winds from hurricane IKE. The power went out just after we went to bed and came back on sometime when we were sleeping. Yes I could have stayed up and waited for the power to come back on and restart the station. I decided to stay in bed and fix it in the morning. The budget does not allow for The Voice of The Beatles, MACCA Radio, to afford the infrastructure to keep the station on-the-air during power outages.

I would need satellite backup feed, auto switching gas or propane generator. I do have a gas generator but the regulator is shot on it and I'm don't have either the money to repair it or replace it.

Perhaps someday if this station is destined to become larger, I will have a budget for those necessities.

Oh no, we are in Canada near Niagara Falls. We just the winds and rain a few days after the Texas coast. Very mild compared to what they got but it was enough to blow trees down here.

Hey Mike,

If I ever hit the Lottery, I promise to donate $1,000,000.00 to you and Macca Radio. Please make note of that. This is a great site and I would love very much to help you bring it up a few notches.

Keep up the great work..................... :salute

Yes it is new. To STOP the auto-start, you can simply hit the STOP button. (see screenshot below)

Ahh...I see....funny I don't have those buttons Mike...though, I am using the new Google browser....maybe it's not set up for that. Thanks though, Mike. :)
