I am not a native English speaker, so please do not blame me for my bad english.
I was thinking long time about starting a such project, because I am not sure if it’s worth it. We are running a small private radio for our server for some month now. It was always just a WinAmp Playlist. I was always a bit into the radio scene, and that’s how i started broadcasting again. People loved it.
Well… that’s how I started EvoCity radio. The name. Well… I tought about calling it Gmod Radio, but there are reasons to not call it like that:
- It’s a lame name
- It’s bad to speak it in jingles
EvoCity is a known Gmod Map, and I think the name was just perfect. The 99.33 - i thought a long time about that. I think it just sounds better with a frequency
The Website. It’s not meant to be a community (yet). Also it is not fully done yet, and it is not public. The whole thing isn’t really public yet.
On the site you can request music when no dj is on air, the bot will play it automatically. When a Dj is on air, where will be a wish&greet box. Also you find a dj schedule their, where you can see when your favorite dj is on air.
The Music. Every public genre (Rock, Pop, Techno and so on) will be played. The bot automatically does mixed play-list, Dj’s mostly play 1 genre. Actually the playlist is on air most of the time, due the page and radio is not public yet, it’s hard to find djs. (Intrested? Contact me )
News are coming every Hour, Tech News all 5 Hours. I think 5 Minutes news are ok, even if it’s a radio for a game. I think everyone should stay up-to-date what’s going on. I wish I could bring up something like playing Gmod News (Idea, but can’t realize it yet). Also we paid the fees for 3 Month radio license now. This means we will definitively try it out
I hope I can get some community input here. What you want? What can we do to make you listen to the radio? Would you include a Gmod radio into your server?
