KGB stands for Knox-GalesBurg, and Radio Galesburg is a reversal of Galesburg Radio, a right wing propaganda operation run by the current mayor of the town, John Pritchard. But that’s only a part time job, his full time job is broadcasting Rush Limbaud throughout Eastern Iowa and Western Illinois. 3 years ago, the Twitter and Facebook handles for Radio Galesburg were available, so I took the bull by the horns. But I’ve moved on to a larger project, IndyRadio - http://indyradio.nu
Saturday, July 16th and have not missed a week, but it’s been awhile since these have been properly announced. It’s about 1:00 pm Central and we’re tuning up - tune in with iTunes, JavaTunes, or Winamp as explained elsewhere in this blog. After the live event, new material will be added to the /bluegrass and /newgrass streams.
Complete playlist with at least 8 streams is at http://indyradio.nu
The live event has ended, and new recording will be added to the playlists soon.
a quick reminder: this simple player:
with no ads works great for Radio Galesburg and 1000s of other independent broadcasters.
Ask me about this and other issues on Facebook:
Our weekly Bluegrass will be live at about Noon today.
Democracy Now! Rebroadcast schedule -
6 shows, including today’s and the schedule is correct. Take the link to text summaries if you don’t see the headlines, but I’ll paste them all in soon.
(update May 19) shows begin at :58 each hour. Each show is repeated after 6 hours.
They only look serious while they’re warming up -:) Scroll down for the playlist and info. We did get some recognition from the local paper of record, and yes this will be happening Saturday. Meanwhile, Scott Schwartz and Martin Stromberg will bring to life the works of Carl Sandburg and Woody Guthrie 7:00pm Thursday, April 14 at Carl’s birthplace. Unannounced elsewhere! Spread the word!
To get our playlist for live broadcasts from Cherry Street Guitar Company —
Saturday morning, when the usual crowd gathers to improvise bluegrass, we broadcast live. Otherwise, an archive of our most recent session begins at the top of the hour. The current session from April 9th plays for 1 hour online - the second hour will be back online soon.
If you take the link above, and just get a slim Quicktime player that plays for a few seconds and quits, it means you should download the Winamp Player - or something similar. then when you click the link, it will play the entire broadcast, and enable your ability to access thousands of other SHOUTcast and Icecast stations.
It’s not as smooth as it was the past 2 weeks, but today’s show is up. I’ll try to add all of this week’s show’s in rotation but I can’t guarantee I’ll have time to post a schedule like this one - consider it a proof of concept - this is how it will be when we are fully equipped and have the time.
Carl Sandburg streams live from his home town, every day and all night long. He has never been so lively. We are adding new readings of poems that seem like they were just written yesterday. This is from the roots of the prairie. Help spread the word. Click the image above for a full size poster. Make sure to print in landscape mode.
Stig Christensen has the simplest player for internet radio. It works great and I can’t recommend it highly enough. He’s been refining this for 6 years, and the latest version is from January of this year. Get it free from his site.
