yo fediverse, who's got a pirate radio station streaming online? i'm making a playlist for use in VLC.

so far:
vantaradio (@vantablack)
aNONradio (@snowdusk_)

pls boost!


@neil @klendool with a computer!

I have a bash script which picks a file at random from my music directory, puts the path in a sqlite database, and returns the path.
I use liquidsoap to call the script to get the path, then play it through an icecast mount.
I use Apache to reverse proxy to icecast, so I can get at the stream over port 80.

For the playlist, I use a bash script to get the playlist data and send it in json with some angular to a web browser, the web browser makes the table.

@neil @klendool I do have all this stuff in git but it's private because I didn't think anyone would be interested at the start but actually it's grown considerably in functionality since then - maybe I should organise and open it as an example :)

@klendool That'd be grand :) I might set a station up..

@neil sweet as I'll do it laters when I have time:)

@neil the reason i set mine up is because I had heaps of music I just didn't listen to anymore. I tried just a normal random but I would just skip songs if I didn't 100% feel like them. This way, I have no choice but to listen because I can't skip and I've been enjoying some older music again!

@vantablack @snowdusk_

@nev @vantablack btw add CIUT89.5FM (University of Toronto community radio) here is their stream address:

every tuesday night (midnight... technically Wed) my friend Mark Tara has an LGBTQ show called "Rainbow Country"

CIUT89.5FM is probably one of the longest running university (college for our American friends) radios in canada... they are community/public funded by donation drive. It's the only (traditional) radio stn i listen to tbh πŸ˜…
