I'm a former WRIU DJ (the official station for the University of Rhode Island) who got bit by the broadcasting bug. Tried the commercial thing for a while......... Hated it! After my experience with commercial radio I decided to move my broadcasting talents to Live365 and spent the next eleven years broadcasting under the station name eargasm. With the expiration of the Small Webcaster Settlement Act and the Copyright Royalty Board's royalty rate increase, Live365 was forced to shut down, so I launched my own station, eargasmUSA. Unfortunately the company I used to pay royalties was unable to successfully negotiate with ASCAP and has gone out of business.
As a hobbyist I am unable to pay royalties directly, so I have returned to Live365 (which is back in business) under my former station name, eargasm. Although you can currently tune in, I am still in the process of building my playlist, and with my extensive music collection this is taking longer than anticipated. I also have a lot more storage space so you can expect a much longer playlist. I will also be bringing back the Indie Hour at some point in the future so stay tuned. Indie artists/bands, you can reach me for airtime via the Contact Me form below.
You can still listen to my audio stream from my existing server out of Leicester, England until I finish finalizing my Live365 playlist. I will also be maintaining this website to keep everyone updated with schedules, new indie artists and whatever else I want to share. Please note that the below embedded player uses Flash which you may need to approve (depending on your browser settings) and will not launch a pop out player.
To listen using your computer's default media player, click the appropriate player icon to download the playlist file. When downloaded simply launch it and your media player will establish a connection to the audio stream.
An eclectic mix of jazz, fusion, progressive rock, progressive metal, guitar rock, shred, blues, jam, indie artists/bands and anything else that gives good eargasm.
Contact me with any issues or if you just want to say hi.
To listen mobile simply install the Oi2 Media Radio app from your appropriate app store (iTunes / Android) and search on eargasmUSA. My station is broadcast via Shoutcast 1 & 2 as well as Icecast-KH, so if you prefer, you can also find my station on the TuneIn app and website.
Another excellent app is Online Radio Box. Because the server I'm using to stream is located in Leicester, England, to find my station follow these simple instructions. After opening the app click the Globe on the right and choose Europe, United Kingdom, England and then Leicester. Next, click on the Magnifying Glass and type eargasmusa in the Search Station window and my station should appear. To find out what's played within the past 24 hours and what's currently playing simply click on Playlist for a complete list including time. You can also find my station via a browser on Online Radio Box. This site allows you to see what's played within the past seven days.
