Subject: OTR Upcoming Re-Enactment Special Broadcast On Nov.
As many of you know, this Friday is the 22nd.
Does anyone remember what happened 39 years TO THE DAY??? (Note: Many
people today are no doubt a year ahead of time, so they'll think it's 40 years
If you said "JFK was shot", PAT YOURSELF ON THE
BACK because that's EXACTLY what happened. To commemorate this
historic event (and to remember the greatest President born in the 1900s), KPDC
Internet Radio (my Talk/OTR station), MusicRadio 102X (my music station) as well
as (hopefully!) KPDC Internet TV (my wee wittle personal TV station) will have
SPECIAL COVERAGE of this most historic event as all three will be broadcasting
(or making the video available for on demand viewing on KPDC Internet TV)
coverage of the JFK Assassination, however it'll be done with a *bit* of a
modern day twist.
I plan to start out with localized coverage on all
three stations, reading bulletins heard on one station, but not on the others
(with video, this may be easier said than done, but I'll try nonetheless).
After a certain time, each of the stations will go to other sources for
Using coverage from NBC News and their "JFK
Assassination - AS IT HAPPENED" series, KPDC Internet TV will go straight to
NBC's coverage of the events after the "local" coverage. KPDC Internet
Radio will most likely follow suit, though I can't say for sure as I haven't
made up my mind as of this writing. MusicRadio102X on the other hand, will
switch to "sister station" KLIF-AM 1190 and *its* continuous coverage right on
up to the broadcast of the official announcement of JFK's death. After
that will be some more "local" coverage and then it too will make the switch to
NBC's "live" coverage of the events after that.
*****UPDATE FOR OTR & OTV FOLKS: NO VIDEO
WILL BE AVAILABLE ON THE KPDC INTERNET TV WEBSITE (Tried encoding using BOTH
Real AND Windows Media with no luck given the way in which the video was made),
however the audio portions are a go)***** I am sorry as I
wanted the video to work too..... :-(
I'll only have the first six hours as that's all I
have outside of mere sound bytes and stuff which probably wouldn't make much
sense anyway. The sound bytes WILL NOT be included.
I also plan to include station IDs during the
promoted ID breaks as well. However, even the IDs will sound a bit on the
modern side (especially via Internet Radio).
I know I can hear the purists out there SCREAMING,
but given the current times, the LAST message I want to send out is one which
*might* contain a plot to kill President Bush. As such, it will be made
CLEAR that the coverage which listeners are hearing is only VIRTUALLY LIVE and
DOES NOT mean that President Bush has been shot and assassinated.. Basically,
it's to keep the "legal eagles" happy (especially since the radio stations are
both on Live365). :-)
This is one time which I'm letting my online TV
station (which has no other means of streaming content) take the primary media
position much like radio stations of today did in the wake of 9/11 and almost
every other event since the JFK Assassination.
The radio stations are all streaming MP3, so you'll
need a player such as Winamp to properly receive them. The video streams
will both be in RealMedia format so you'll need the RealPlayer to watch the
video, however though it WILL NOT be live like the radio stations due to the
lack of resources, but if you tune in at the right time, who knows, it just may
be as close to real time as possible to you. :-)
The websites will also have updated virtual
coverage as well, so be sure to check those out too. :-)
As for bitrates, the breakdown is as
KPDC Internet Radio broadcasts in 24K streaming MP3
mono (which is perfectly receivable by almost any modem today except
MusicRadio 102X broadcasts in 56/22 streaming MP3 stereo (NOT
receivable on a dialup - this is a broadband only stream)
The radio streams are available either via Live365
or via the websites which will be posted below.
Having said all that....Cheers for now
