Blast On FM

Is The Blast on FM radio?  

Yes, you can hear us on 94.3 The X in Knoxville, Tennessee, USA, Sunday mornings on 8-9 am.  We've had a syndicated show on that mainstream/secular active rock radio station since Spring 2009.  They chose us over all FM Christian rock stations due to the way we program The Blast. 

We've also had unconfirmed reports that FM stations in various places have carried The Blast.  If you know of a station doing that, or that has done that, we'd sure like to know about it.  You can send your Blast "QSL" report here:  http://www.theblast.fm/wp/blastbacks/

We've had tons of requests from Blasters to be heard on FM and/or satellite radio.  In other words, these Blasters want us to start an FM or satellite radio station. 

Well, guess what?  That takes a lot more money than we currently have.  Radio station owners that would like to carry our programming on FM, LPFM, AM, HD-2, 3 or 4, DAB, DAB+, shortwave, medium wave, or satellite radio, we are open to the idea.  Or, if you don't currently own a radio station, you can form a group in your community to raise funds to start a radio station and carry our programming.   If you own or run a radio station and are interested in carrying Blast programming, write to our President and Program Director:  ColinCruz <at> TheBlast.FM.  We are open to adding terrestrial radio affiliates worldwide. 

If you'd like to see The Blast get added to XM Sirius, don't just write to us.  The request to be carried means a whole lot more coming from you than it does coming from us.  You can call XM Sirius about this at 1-866-528-7474.  If any of our Blasters know of a better way to contact them, please share it here:  http://www.theblast.fm/wp/blastbacks/

New Blast T-shirts coming?

BlastRock_TshirtBlasters, we want to buy new Blast T-shirts with a new design and a different color of shirt this time.  We've been raising money to do that this week and we are needing about $200 more to get them ordered.  We want to fund these on the front end as we don't really make much off of them once postage is figured in.   If you can help, please visit:  http://www.theblast.fm/wp/donations/

Help Replenish The Blast Stash Of Cash For New Projects

The Blast has spent a heap of money lately…several thousand dollars on new apps and on another sound card/processor/encoders unit (this one for our coming, second radio station). We are still building the new apps, by the way, and those will be out soon. If you can, please help replenish The Blast Stash of Cash so we can stay debt free AND have money available for other upcoming projects. No amount is too big or too small. You can give here, as a Paypal guest, as a Paypal member, or through the postal mail: www.theblast.fm/donation.php

The Blast Android App Has Been Updated

Android Blasters: our Android app has been updated. The high bit rate stream has been upgraded to a 192 kbps mp3 stream for transparent CD quality audio in wi-fi environments; and 80k and 48k Ogg Vorbis streams. The 64k mp3 stream has been retained. Let us know what you think. One way to do that is in the 2013 Blast Mobile Apps survey.
