Doug-in-Haiti-towerDue to a massive server (and server backup) failure, BlackLight Radio was off the air most of the weekend.

In the picture to the left you can see Bubba, our internet radio tower repair man, doing what he can to get us back on the air.

We are back now (with a new company), but a few places like TuneIn, StreamS, and nobex may not have our link updated for a day or two.

In the meantime, feel free to launch us from iTunes, LoudCity, BlackLightRadio.com, or the following address:

Enjoy!!!

After a long couple of days, we’ve been able to return to streaming with LoudCity… and most excitingly, our new licensing agreement will allow us to run commercial advertisements in-stream.

This is great news because instead of begging each month for listeners to send in money, we can promote a handful of great products or services to pay for our licensing fees, software upgrades, and music library expansions.

We’re offering a commercial length of your choosing up to sixty seconds, either provided by you or written, produced, and voiced by us and subject to your approval.

These commercials will air at least six times a day during regular programming on BlackLight Radio’s web stream.

The charge for one month of this schedule (approximately 180 airings over the course of 30 days) is $10, which includes any writing or production needed and all 180 airings. (Yes, this works out to 18 cents per airing!)

There is no long-term contract required; advertising agreements are month-to-month.

As a listener, this should not scare you. We have no plans to run more than one commercial an hour in place of a PSA or classic commercial we’re airing right now. As our advertisers increase and fill up our advertising spots, our advertising rates will go up so that our working capital will increase, advertising clutter WON’T increase, and our advertisers won’t be lost in a long stretch of ads.

If this interests you, please contact me (Gene Savage) at our email address at the right, or contact me on Facebook (again on the right side of this page). Sponsorships will also be available for our newscasts and specialty programming; contact me for more details.

BlackLight Radio is back… and the future of the 80s looks BRIGHT. Thanks for coming along for the ride!

Here’s an update on BlackLight Radio and our attempts to restore our license to stream music:

We’ve made contact with someone at LoudCity regarding our canceled account, and they are talking with the “higher ups” to find out if we will be able to restore the previous terms of our account.

If we are not, the cost of streaming with our current listening audience wouldn’t go up a lot: only about $5 a month as long as nobody else starts listening. Of course, we’d prefer to have more and more listeners!

Another licensing company, StreamLicensing, is talking to us about using their services. They would be about $15 a month more… BUT, we would be able at that point to take on advertisers to run legitimate commercials on BlackLight Radio.

Do you have or do you know of someone with a product or service that you would be willing to spend $5 or $10 a month to advertise on BlackLight Radio? Four advertisers at $10 a month would pay for us to move to StreamLicensing.

We need to hear your thoughts. If you would consider investing $10 a month in promoting a service or product on BlackLight Radio, please email me, Gene, at inbox@blacklightradio.com or contact us on our Facebook page.

Today I feel more confident than I did yesterday that the 80s greatest hits will return to BlackLight Radio. We need more information from LoudCity to make our decision, and we need more information from you.

We have a contact email on our website at blacklightradio.com. You can also reach us through Facebook, which is also linked on our homepage. Or you can email us directly: inbox@blacklightradio.com.

Would you spend $10 a month advertising your product or service on BlackLight Radio’s web stream? I look forward to hearing from you… and will be back with another update tomorrow.
