People are always stating that Internet Radio is killing terrestrial radio broadcasting.
I just do NOT agree with that.
When my radio station was carried on the FM broadcast band, we had over 50 interested people listening to it and Interacting with us on our Facebook page.
Because of issues, the terrestrial broadcast side of my radio station is now gone.
I have gone over to being an Internet only radio station.
I am listed on several sites, including Tune In dot com.
I keep posting on facebook as much as I can, about the station and the links to listen in.
No matter what I have done, my Internet station always has ONE listener....ME!!!!
Included is a screen shot showing my server's status.
When I was on the FM band, people listened, now, as an Internet Radio station with the same programing schedule, I can not get anyone to listen for the life of me.
This is why I have to ask, why do so many people claim that Internet Radio is killing terrestrial radio??
When WXTZ 87.9 Norwich was in operation we had a crew, now I'm a loner trying to revive what I once had. Advertising my stream is difficult, without crossing that spam rule at most sites.
WFPN is a non-profit, self supporting station, I pay the music licensing fees, without financial help from others.
But try and try again, I can not get anyone to listen on line!! My daily server statistics indicate I am the only listener my Internet station has day after day.
I do not do live broadcasting, like I did when WXTZ was on air, because I see no point in talking to myself, when no one else is even trying to tune in to see what WFPN has to offer.
Are you all facing the same issues with your Internet feeds?
