I've been on Radionomy.com for a week, but I have yet to see my station listed in the search results. Even when I type in the full name of my station it shows 0 results found.

Is there an age limit as to how old a station has to be before it's listed, or does it just take a while for Radionomy to get around to listing new stations?

By the way, I just came from Live365.com (which may or may not be in the throes of getting shut down) and I have been quite pleased with Radionomy.com. It took a little while to get used to the software (I'm still learning) but overall it's fairly user-friendly once you get going. The sound quality and stability of the stream is light years ahead of what my stream on Live365.com used to be (which used to cut out repeatedly for no particular reason). And the price is right!

Now, I just need to get some more listeners and I'll be happy!

I've posted in various directories on the web, so hopefully that will bear fruit soon enough. Any tips from any of the seasoned (or even the not-so-seasoned) broadcasters here would be greatly appreciated!

Best regards and happy listening!

Hi Paul - Welcome from another Live365er now building a station on Radionomy!

I did find your listing by typing "classichitsoline" into the search box on Radionomy's home page. But it doesn't show up if I type "classic hits online." I'm guessing that means you typed it as one word when you named the station - probably thinking of it as a username.

I'm not sure if there's a way to change that - other than by starting all over again. Among the things I have NOT figured out yet is whether it's possible to get any human customer service/technical help in here.

Besides the station name, listeners can search by genre - by clicking "Listen" on the main page and choosing from the list that appears on the left. To show up there, you want to go to MyRadioManager, click Settings and look for the "+Styles" button to add up to five musical styles that your station features.

As a fellow Radionomy newbie, I'd be happy to keep in touch and compare notes on the workings of this site.

You cannot change the name of a station on radionomy. The only way to change it is to create a new station (you can copy tracks/boxes between stations with limitations).

Domi (a site admin) and Bob (a moderator) are some of the most regular official radionomy personnel on this forum who will be able to assist you.

If you have technical queries they are best dealt with it the Technical Support area of the forum of course, and you get the best assistance by filling out your profile, see https://board.radionomy.com/viewtopic.php?f=24&t=568#p1969.

Thank you both for your assistance!

I did actually find my station in the directory by typing "classichitsonline" as one word. I don't think I'll bother trying to change it to separate words as I've already (successfully) submitted my station to various streaming sites (eg., TuneIn.com; RadioForest.net; YourMuze.fm, just to name a few.) I'm not always finding it in the Radionomy directory by clicking the respective genres, though. (Maybe I'm just not scrolling far enough?)

Whatever the case, I'm having fun with the station so far (and I think that's why most of us are here!)

Best wishes everybody!

Hi Paul,

I'm DJ D from Retro Remixes. I also just switched over from 365 & am pleased so far with Radionomy. I greatly enjoyed your station before & had it in my favorites list as I do here, too.

I've only been here a few days but am managing to get the hang of things. I don't know how hard it is to get noticed on Radionomy as opposed to 365 where I found it very hard to compete.

Best of luck & let us know if you find a great way to promote your station.

Thanks DJ D! I've just recently added your station to my favorites too.

In terms of listenership, I appear to be my station's most loyal listener for the time being...lol. My Live365 listeners don't appear to be coming over in droves as of yet. Not that I exactly had droves of listeners over there to begin with, despite peaking around #28 in the Oldies genre (I checked my stats for yesterday...apparently I'm #34 in Oldies, despite not having an active stream for almost a week...go figure??)

Unlike Dan from Birchstreetradio who, according to his blog, is keeping two streams active for the time being, I don't think I'll be going back to Live365 anytime soon (if in fact there is a Live365 to go back to after the end of this month). With all the features that Radionomy offers with its radio planner (like mix points, compression, etc.) it makes me realize just how lacking in features Live365 was. Plus the fact that my stream used to cut out all time for no reason, it makes me question whether it was worth the $60 CAN that I was paying each month. My station was (and still is) automated, so this setup works great for me. Live broadcasters may have a slightly different experience, so I can't vouch for any issues that they might be having. (According to Live365, I couldn't legally do a live broadcast from their servers unless I paid the licensing agencies, as their licensing arrangement only covers the U.S.. If you're doing an automated broadcast, you're essentially considered a U.S. station, but as soon as you go live, you're considered as whatever country your broadcast originates from).

In terms of promotion, I've been posting on my Facebook and Twitter pages about the 'new and improved' Classic Hits Online, as well as submitting my info to various streaming sites. I just got a reply from vTuner saying that my station will be added in their next update, so we'll see how that goes. If anyone out there knows of any geese that lay golden eggs (in terms of promotion), please share the wealth! I'll definitely keep everyone posted should I happen to come across my proverbial goose!

In the meantime, happy listening and have fun with your stations!

Regards,
Paul Jeffries
