Lo-Fi Stream Added For Blast And Blender Access In Bangladesh

Some of the things listeners have come to expect when listening to The Blast and The Blast Blender are:  high quality streams, bit rate choices, and accessibility.   We thought we had all the bases covered, with bit rates from 128 kbps down to 24 kbps, using the AAC+ codec at 24 kbps, which is light years better in sound than a 24 kbps mp3.stream.

However, we were recently informed by a passionate Blast and Blender listener named Rayhan, in the south Asia country Bangladesh, that he has an "ancient" smart phone (built in 2005) that can only play certain kinds of mp3 streams.  He also said that he needs a low bit rate stream, as mobile bandwidth is very expensive in Bangladesh, and he says the mobile internet is slow there.

So despite the low sound quality of this bit rate and codec combination, we have set up a 24 kbps mp3 stream for Rayhan and others who are in a similar situation.

You will find the streaming address on our "All Streams, All Media Players" page:  http://www.theblast.fm/wp/other-streams/

Blasting Out The Word

When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.
