FA News – August 7th, 2016

Flashback Alternatives is Now Part of the SonixCast Network

This weekend we officially became part of the SonixCast Network of stations broadcasting out of Toronto, Canada.

All of our listen links have been updated on the FA Website, Shoutcast, TuneIn, FA WordPress site and soon iTunes (we are listed but there is an issue with the tune in link – this should be resolved on Monday).

We still remain commercial free!

TuneIn / Sonos Issue Resolved

For those that use Sonos devices, the issue with listening to FA through TuneIn has been resolved.  The issue was with the user agent type Sonos displays to the broadcasting software.  They use an agent that can be mistaken for stream ripping software.  As I am very proactive when it comes to Stream Rippers, I banned that agent.  I alerted Sonos to this and am waiting for a response.  In the meantime, as long I do not detect stream ripping, I will allow the agent.

September 2016 Artist Of The Month Poll

The September 2016 Artist of the Month Poll is up.  This month the choices are:

  • Thomas Dolby / The Dream Academy (Last month’s runner up)
  • John Foxx / Gangway
  • The Go-Betweens / The Go-Go’s
  • Heaven 17 / Nick Heyward

You can vote for the AoTM here or on the FA website.

That’s all for now.

As always, thanks for listening to Flashback Alternatives!
