For today and tomorrow only....

For today and tomorrow only I will be airing a test run through of songs and different schedules. 
The official broadcast date still remains some time near the start of December, however I am broadcasting for a few hours today (29/11/11) and tomorrow (30/11/11) to check if the songs sound good together in their schedules and no bad songs have accidentally crept in :)

The official broadcast date is different because the radio will be more refined and have the radio's jingles and other radio stuff in it.

Today's progress so far has been good as I have got a lot more funky funk songs and soul, which is always good :D

Good News!

I will have extra time to finish everything I need to broadcast the radio because of I get an extra day off (due to school strikes). Depending on the progress I make, hopefully it will bring the broadcast date closer but it will definitely give me time to improve the radio.

All I have left to do now is to gather some more albums and compilations so that I have a large library of songs that don't repeat every other minute. I need to create a jingle and record some stuff that I can put in before songs but a good song library is my priority.

I will be posting a list of some songs on later and remember to contact us with songs you want to hear.

Big News

Problem solved! Sort of.
We got a reply from the Radionomy site about two people creating a radio station but they said that it is a feature that is currently unavailable. So, as it stands, there are now two 'linking' radios  - WaWaWadio and JustAnotherRadio.

Please check out www.wawawadio.blogspot.com as well (and check the RSS feed at the bottom for regular updates on his blog posts).

Broadcast Date

JustAnotherRadio is airing soon
The broadcast date should be between 25/11/11 (today) and 10/12/11. If everything goes to plan (and the program doesn't have any more errors), I am aiming to get it aired on the 3rd and 4th December as it is a weekend.

New YouTube + Just Another Radio = Just Another YouTube Channel

-YouTube Channel
Image Source, no copyright intended etc.
YouTube is being updated to the Cosmic Panda layout, it is all silver and black and with lots of video playlists and stuff. Also, (in big YouTube news) we made a YouTube account - JustAnotherRadio2011 . 

On our YouTube Channel we might announce things, do competitions and like lots of songs we like. If we upload a video, we will announce it on here and we do hope to a have a RSS feed on the YouTube channel with posts from the blog. We're trying to connect all the formats we are in e.g. blog and radionomy and youtube so it's most likely that you will start to see more and more links on each of the sites.

Our actual radio will be embeded in this blog as soon as it broadcasts. Broadcast date to be revealed shortly.

Scheduling & Stuff

Scheduling and stuff and problems and updates
 and solutions and more problems and good things 
and bad things and rotas!
Our Radio Manager issue is still going on as our ingenious solution didn't work. :( We might have to separate the week days between us, so we both have music libraries but they aren't the same. However, this is a good thing! We have a wider music library and days can be themed and different so it keeps it fresh.

The music at the moment does go with the time it is. In the morning there is feel-good, calm reggae, soul and funk. Then gradually, you move into more chart songs and rock. As the day progresses there will be some more rap. Finally, at night there will be more dubstep. In addition, we won't just stop the reggae, funk and soul, as that is what our radio focuses around. There is a nice mix during the middle of the day, where there is an equal bit of 

Some song names and artists to be revealed later on! Please submit your song suggestions and favourite artists in the comments or tweet us @Radio_JAR

Children In Need & Updates :)

Today is Children in Need! Yesterday there was a Children in Need concert (CIN Rocks) and there were loads of artists performing for the charity including Coldplay, Elbow and Lady Gaga. Donate at http://www.bbc.co.uk/pudsey/ or by phone.

Our ingenious idea to share the radio library between both of us didn't work but we have an idea to work our way around the problem. The air date will hopefully be within a few weeks - there's just a lot of songs to get into playlists 'n' stuff. :)

What is your favourite music genre?
I just want to remind you about the poll on the right sidebar. It only takes one second to click on one or more answers and it would really be great to hear from you. If you have any other appropriate ideas and genre's you want to add just put them in the comments on this post :) 

As it stands, with a whopping two votes, funk is in the lead. However, pop,soul, rock, alternative and 'other' all have one vote. I encourage you to do an honest vote before the deadline.

Day 3 - Behind the Scenes

Behind the Scenes
We haven't really posted any 'blog-like' posts yet,
 so here goes:
Day -1 mainly consisted of conversations similar to these: "Are we actually going to make an internet radio?" ,"What shall we call it?" , "Oh, I really wish that name wasn't taken." After several hours of searching for names that hadn't been taken, we came up with Just Another Radio (sometimes abbreviated as JAR).  We created accounts on Twitter, Blogger and Gmail. Then dreadful things happened, nah, I just said that so you would click read more. Press read more? Please? 

Make It YOUR Radio

Make It YOUR Radio
It's so easy to just look past posts like these, especially with a cliche title like that ^ , but if just this once you didn't - you would be in for a treat. In short, this post is about how you can get involved with the radio and how you can help mould it into the radio you want to listen to
1. How you can shape how the radio develops
2. How you can feature on the radio

1. Many people who don't listen to radios have reasons such as 'they don't play music I like' , 'too much talking' etc.  So, we are asking you to help us create a radio you would want to listen to - and this won't stop once we are broadcasting; we are going to continually develop our radio. "How could I possibly do this?" I hear you ask (I'm psychic or something) - you can comment, tweet about it or email us or even all three (details at bottom). You can tell us anything from your favourite song, how much we should talk, when we should play certain music and any other appropriate suggestions you might have. 

2. Are you an aspiring musical artist, songwriter or producer? With your consent, we would be willing to air your music in our Up-and-Coming artist time-slot. All we ask in return is you ask people to listen to our radio. It's a win-win, we get listeners, you get listeners. For further details email justanotherradio@gmail.com
Now you know all you need to know about how to make Just Another Radio your radio. 
We look forward to hearing from you!

Gotta Have That Funk
We're currently building up our playlist with lots of songs from THE Stevie Wonder, James Brown, Al Green and many other funk/soul artists. We are also incorporating modern songs onto our radio station, so we can appreciate the old and new and other stuff like that. 
Bob Marley, Elvis Presley, Daft Punk and Eminem are a few names you wouldn't hear together on any other radio station but Just Another Radio. We're planning schedules for each different genres and where we might have a mix. 

Also, we are looking for up-and-coming artists who would like to feature on our radio station. In return, we only ask that you tell as many people as you can about us!
