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. The Indie Hour is back! Go to The Indie Hour page for more information on playlist and scheduled air times. Indie musicians and/or bands can reach me for airtime via the Contact Me form below or emailing me directly to
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 renegotiate with ASCAP and has gone out of business.
Contact me with any issues or if you just want to say hi.
To listen to my Leicester stream 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 a good eargasm.
There has been a recent change to the server port address for my Leicester, England stream. As such I need to re-register with ShoutCast. Until I am able to re-register this will affect The TuneIn app and website listening experience. If this was your preferred method please be patient while I work out the kinks with ShoutCast. If knowing what you're listening to is important to you as it is with me then I highly recommend the Online Radio Box app over TuneIn. It also seems to be more stable than the Live365 mobile app and is available in both the Google Play Store and the Apple App Store. To find my station on Online Radio Box 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 display. 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 times each song played. 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.
Looking to find out when your favorite bands are coming to town? Go to Songkick or Bandsintown for the latest schedules and to track them so you will be notified when they are coming to your town or region.
Since Live365 geo-blocks all but the USA, UK and Canada, I will maintain the audio stream from my existing server out of Leicester, England for the time being. However I may have discovered a way around this using Online Radio Box. It is currently playing my Live365 stream. Please follow the directions for using Online Radio Box under the Listen Mobile heading.
Even though I am in the middle of a major playlist update on my Leicester server I have restarted it for your listening enjoyment. It's been updated with all new songs and with many new bands added. I apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.
