A Blast Of Christian Rock And Metal: TheBlast.FM
"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!
The Blast News & Music News Headlines
Saturday evenings (in the Western Hemisphere) now have a 7 hour block of specialty programming on The Blast:
5 PM-8 PM The Classic Alt/Rock Blast (Saturday expanded edition) (classic Christian modern rock and alternative)
8 PM-9 PM The Ghosts Of Metal Blast (old and new 80's style metal)
9 PM-12 Midnight Blastmetal (new era metal, screamo and hardcore)
All times: USA/Canadian Central Time Zone
One thing The Blast is definitely known for is streaming choices. The Blast doesn't still stream like it's 1999. You're not stuck with 2 choices: 1 high bit rate and 1 low bit rate stream that sounds like you are listening underwater. Glug, glug, glug. Even TheBlast.FM's lowest bit rate (24k AAC+) stream sounds like FM quality.
As we begin to phase out mp3 streaming at The Blast, over the weekend we placed our highest quality stream, our 128k AAC+ stream, on the home page.
We do have some iss-yews, though. The first button, the 128k AAC+ stream for Windows Media Player, yields no audio currently.
***Use our Flash players in the middle. All 3 of them are playing the correct stream/music***
Button 6: 64k for Windows Media Player…the stream is having some issues in that player.
Button 7 is correct (64k for iTunes).
We will update this post when all the buttons are working properly. Happy Blasting Monday, everyone!
