Colin Cruz, founder and program director of TheBlast.FM has moved off of his Noon-3 pm time slot to a 9 am to Noon slot, every weekday. Brandy moves to Thursdays from Noon to 3 pm. (USA/Canadian Central Time). So, today, for the first time ever, we have on air personalities on the air for 6 straight hours. We’re still dreaming of building an air staff!
TheBlast.FM stations recently changed streaming addresses for better connectivity from our main encoding site in Portland.
Streams are now hosted in San Diego and are much smoother, as internet routing changes had made the connection from Portland to the Washington, D.C. metro much less stable.
If you are listening on a third party media player, app or system on which TheBlast.FM stations don’t seem to be working anymore, and you can load our new streaming addresses manually, those are found here: https://www.theblast.fm/home/all-streams-all-major-media-players/
Please notify us of any stream aggregators you use that need to be updated with streaming addresses.
Each purple circle represents one listener location over the last 9 days of us testing some new listener geo-mapping software. Most of the world is completely blanketed, sans Siberia, The Outback, northern Canada, Greenland, central Asia, parts of Africa and Antarctica. This is composite picture of listening on all 4 of TheBlast.FM stations.

The streaming addresses have also been updated in our Android, iOS, Roku, Apple TV, Amazon Fire and Blackberry apps so you may need to restart those apps to make sure the new stream addresses are loaded. The old streaming addresses will go away soon.
We have a request in to our Windows/XBox/Alexa Skills app developer to change the addresses in those apps.
