TheBlast.FM – GET YOUR BLAST ON!
"The Blast" aka: "Blastrock" from TheBlast.FM. Christian Rock & Alternative and Christian Metal Music. Intense music that most FM Christian radio stations dare not play. Nobody does it like The Blast. Boldly Blast with us where no one has Blasted before!
The Blast now has a sister station called "The Blast Blender", that blends pop, rock, rap/hip hop, R&B and electronic dance music! Go to The Blast Blender at http://blender.theblast.fm (notice there are no www's!) and take a listen!

Our streaming provider figured out and fixed the problem that occasionally plagued the 64k AAC+ stream over the last week. There is no longer a dedicated 64k AAC+ flash player on the site, but there is once again (a new) multi-stream flash player that includes the 64k, 48k, 32k and 20k AAC+ streams. One of the great things about this flash player is that if your particular Blast stream goes down, it will automatically connect to the next Blast stream down the chain. The 64k and 32k streams are hosted in the eastern USA and the 48k and 20k are hosted in the western USA so this provides some nice redundancy in case of routing problems in one direction or the other.
The multi-stream flash player also has a request portal in it.
Here is a screen shot of the new player (just click on Multi-Stream Player to use it):
On any device that supports HTML5 in its browser (best choice: usually Firefox), here is an alternate way to get Blasted. Since our app is not supported yet on Android tablets, an alternative is needed. Since the Android operating system is so fractured, some apps work well on some devices and not as well on others. Watch this video and see how to listen to the high quality 80 kbps Ogg Vorbis Blast stream.
