As we speak, the collective technical genius of the KRUU CREW is madly working to switch all our networks services over to the newly installed LISCO fiber. This service will be replacing our 2MB DSL service currently also provided by LISCO, but will be running at 100MB wire speeds, so we're looking at least a 50x increase in speed/bandwith... with that we'll have to push really hard to max out on live stream listeners and/or web&archive downloads. (Both of which we've maxed out in the past)

Live from the Fairfield SquareSo, if you are (or were) listening to the KRUU broadcast anytime between 5pm and 10pm today (April 6th), you'll have heard the Happy Hour crew, as usual. Except that nothing was "as usual". This time the Central Park Furniture Store (formerly the Futon Shop) hosted the KRUU Live Remote!

Thanks to LISCO , we got ourselves an internet connection at the location on the square to do a live feed. Caleb got a IceCast server up, got it hooked up to send our stream out back to the station, and then spread out on FM and out to the world at kruufm.com.

This is the second time we've done this (first time with our kick-off at the Armory). But this time it's stable :-)

So, if you're listening in, or just browsing, stop by the Futon Store/Central Park on the West side of the Fairfield Square and say "hi". You'll be live on the radio :-)
