Summer of Rockin 2014!

That’s right ladies and gentlemen! We have just completed the 6 Year Anniversary and now is the time to start planning the Summer of Rockin 2014! I’ve already announced the start date during Friday’s show, but in case you missed it, the start date for the Summer of Rockin will be May 16th, 2014 Now, you may be wondering, why not May 1st like last year? Well, we thought about doing it then, but we realized that it was just way too long and it didn’t really feel like summer on May 1st (I mean, come on, on May 1st last year, we had temps in the 40s!). So, hopefully by starting May 16th, we’ll be at least somewhat Summer-ie. There are a few things that are different this year than in years past which will be explained in this post:

1) There won’t be as many shows this year as there were last year: Last year, I was doing 6 shows a week, Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. It was just too much and I was burned out by the end of the Summer, so this year, I will only be doing 3 shows a week, one on Wednesday, Friday and possibly Monday is what I’m shooting for. For the Wednesday show, it will be as always The Midweek Survey Show, on Friday it will always be the Flagship Friday show, as for Monday, well, since we had some success with it last year, we are looking at bringing All Request Mondays back to the network but not positive yet.

2) We will not be site hopping like we were last year: Last year at the launch of the SOR 2013, we were on Ustream, by the end of the summer we had been on JustinTV, and Vaughn. This time, we have basically found our two main sites which are Uvlog and JustCast. We have had success with Uvlog and JustCast and so we are using those 2 sites as our primary broadcasting sites.

Other than those 2 things (which are the only 2 I could think of), everything else will be the same. Now, we don’t have the schedule set in stone, so be sure to check back within a couple of weeks to find out the official schedule. Also, if you are interested in doing a show, let me know! Message me on Facebook or Skype (if you have it) or on YouTube (link in the links section) and I’ll get back to you.

Well, that does it for this update, time for this guy to go to bed before I fall asleep at the keyboard. Keep on Rockin folks! Don’t worry! The Beach will be open soon :)

March 2014 Update

Well, once again, it’s time for an update! Right now, we are making a few changes to the website in case you didn’t know. We decided that since we don’t use the JustinTV feed page, we figured that we would make it into a page that WOULD be used each time we broadcast, so, with that, right now, we are making a page for the JustCast feed and getting rid of the JustinTV settings. We are also doing some general maintenance to keep the site running smoothly.

At the time of this writing, we are coming up on the One Year Anniversary of the BlogTV shutdown. We can’t believe that it’s almost been a year since BlogTV closed its doors. Since BlogTV shut down, we have had 3 different primary broadcasting sites! Ustream, VaughnLive and now Uvlog! It’s been quite a ride this past year but right now, we think we have everything sorted and a good site platform to broadcast from and we are really excited!

We are also excited around The Rockin WAVES 11294 Radio Network because we are quickly approaching our 6th Year Anniversary! And last year, when we were celebrating 5 years and also mourning the shutdown of BlogTV, that day, all the DJ’s went live and did a show on Rockin WAVES and that’s what we are going to try to do again this year (pending if everyone is available). We don’t have all the details ironed out yet but we will let everyone know when it gets closer to time.

We also have a few other ideas that are floating around for the 6 Year Anniversary Show that aren’t official yet but we are still about 2 weeks away. But keep checking back to the Rockin WAVES blog for details and other announcements.

A couple of other changes on the website include our Links section. We have added a few links for a couple of other stations that you can give a listen to when we aren’t broadcasting. They are awesome stations so go check them out!

Well, that about does it for the update. Thanks to everyone that has listened to Rockin WAVES and be sure to keep on listening! Until next time, Keep on Rockin!
