Randi Rhodes is Back On Air   Posted on July 11, 2016 by Solarzar Dellaporta

Starting Today, Monday, July 11, I hope to capture Randi Rhodes and begin broadcasting her, again, on Radio Monterey. As we head into this challenging election cycle it is wonderful to have her voice back to help us be properly informed. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that we will be able to get everything properly […]

Radio Monterey is Back Up and Running   Posted on July 10, 2016 by Solarzar Dellaporta

We had some unusual activity Saturday, July 9 with the broadcast of Radio Monterey. First, it shifted the kbps from 128 to 24, magically on its own. Next it deleted the streaming encoder file so it never connected to our streaming server in Virginia. It took the team from Slable several hours to get us […]

We did some work today to improve the audio stream. It worked, then we stopped broadcasting. The technicians are trying to identify the source of the problem. I apologize for any inconvenience.

I Am Sad, But Not the Way They Are!   Posted on July 5, 2016 by Solarzar Dellaporta

I’m sad. The following post was on my Facebook page:  NAME WITHHELD-ORIGINAL POST  I am very sad today. America has a big black eye on this July 5th. I know Elliot Ness is more legend than fact, but what we really need is an FBI director who is untouchable. At this point, the right thing […]

No Time Left to Wait   Posted on July 4, 2016 by Solarzar Dellaporta

We are deep into the political season as the wingnuts all run for the Republican nomination for President and Progessives foam at the mouth declaring how bad Hilary the Corporatist is versus Bernie the nice old favorite uncle of everybody. I’m tired. In the last four years I’ve lost my job, I’ve exhausted all funds […]

Cancer New Moon – A Time to Heal   Posted on by Solarzar Dellaporta

We have our Cancer Sun and now our New Moon starts the day at 4:01 am Pacific. Since the New Moon is in Cancer we certainly have powerful opportunities for new beginnings in the areas of home and family. A time to cook, clean, redo, expand or just plain do. This is a good time […]

Broadcast Audio   Posted on July 3, 2016 by Solarzar Dellaporta

The broadcast audio has seemed more balanced since we boosted the kbps.  Since I don’t listen 100% of the time I appreciate when listeners let me know about the time when the audio may not broadcast well. Interestingly I received an “Anonymous” email, with an “anonymous123456@gmail.com” as the email address. So this person went out […]

Broadcast Stream   Posted on June 28, 2016 by Solarzar Dellaporta

Since installing a new Streaming Computer on June 3 I have been chasing a variety of broadcast audio issues.  Today, I noticed the kbps rate in the Stream Overly System was only 24 kbps. This is the lowest it can be. When I purchased Radio Monterey this is the rate it was streaming at that […]

The End of an Era   Posted on June 17, 2016 by Solarzar Dellaporta

Today marked a major milestone in the operation of Radio Monterey. Over 11 years ago Hal Ginsberg founded and began operation of AM 540 KRXA. There were many shifts and changes with people; hosts and shows. Through it all Hal remained steadfast in his desire to keep progressive voices on air. During the last five […]
