I have lashed together a temporary streaming system. You are
welcome to try it out. It is completely experimental and may
be adjusted, rebooted or otherwise at any time.

Our schedule can been on the website http://wmfh-lp.org

You'd be doing me a favor to give it a try and let me know
how/if it works.

Great! I don't have time to listen to it now, but I'm excited about the stream. :)

Coming in wonderfully on my computer -- I just listened to the last hour and it was crystal clear. And a very nice variety of selections, too!

That is so awesome!!! The stream is working great for me (Mac, firefox). The schedule doesn't seem to match the stream...

Right now I'm hearing a poem read by Alan Drake Davis (Cloud Mountain), a wonderful volunteer whom we lost a few years ago :(

And now, Dulce Et Decorum Est.

Ah, now Tolstoy -- "Where Love is, God is also", which is on the schedule. I see. You fill the time between big chapters with random poetry. That's a great idea!

This is so freaking cool. Just so so so cool. Bookmarked!

It's coming through loud and clear on my iPad media player so it will work on iPhones just as well.

Yep, works fine in Safari on my iPhone SE. Also fine in Safari on Mac.

Hey Chris,

I have just cancelled my Pandora subscription and will donate that $3/month to you instead. I want to support your project; it gives me great pleasure to listen to your stream. Keep up the great work!

It works - I can hear the stream Down Under! The schedule isn't very useful though, as I'm not sure what time zone you are in.

The station is in Central time. I don't know what part of "down under" you're in, but Sydney Australia is +15 hours ahead of Central time.

Thanks

You guys may have been to the Moon, but just remember, we Aussies live 15 hours in the future!

Just posting again to say how much I've been enjoying this stream. I have started listening when I lie down to take a nap in the afternoon, and it's juuuuuust right. I usually listen to podcasts or audiobooks while I sleep, but sometimes they keep me awake because I don't want to miss anything. But a stream of random chapters and poetry is just the ticket.

The little chime between segments wakes me up sometimes, though. Maybe you could make it a little quieter? :)

It makes me nostalgic for the Old Days, when I knew every volunteer and every voice personally. I can't keep up anymore, and BOY HOWDY do we have some awesome readers!

I just heard my own voice reading the station identifier! Fun :)
