One of my internal core switches on one of my networks went out overnight and I had to replace it this morning. This caused an outage for a while in areas of the site, including the radios stream the “House of Beats”. Everything is up an running as it has been since 2004 once again!
I think this Friday I would like to reintroduce you all to funk going back to the ’70’s for sure but hopefully I can find some music from today that fits the bill as well.
I will not be playing funk exclusively but it will be very heavy in the mix, hey I need to spice some things up and bring in some hard core stuff and maybe some other flavors as well but really artists like James Brown, George Clinton, Bootsy, Parliament, Cameo, Afrika Bambaataa, Kool & the Gang, Johnson Brothers, Rick James, etc.. and the music they and others influenced…..
Besides you know Hip-hop has lot’s of funk but I’m lookng for the funkiest cuts I can find & remember!
Well I fixed an issue I had not known existed because I had not been doing my due diligence in monitoring certain elements lately. The windows media encoder had crashed and then disappeared on my music server when I upgraded and I usually monitor with Shoutcast enabled media players so I didn’t notice the issue with the Windows media encoder since I seldom listen and monitor with the Windows Media player.
You can alternately click on the media player icon.
When the message asking to launch Windows Media player comes up:
Choose “Launch Application” and Windows Media player will start streaming whatever is playing on “Snakeice’s House of Beats“:
You’ll notice in the bottom left corner it will first show buffering and then start playing the music then scroll the song being played information & station id.
Sit back and enjoy the music. Also if you have Windows Media Player already up you can right click on the top portion of the Windows Media Player -> <Click on> “File” -> Then <Click on> “Open URL”:
The next step is to enter in the in the path to the music “mms://dhoytt.com:3690” in the dialogue box:
There you have it another way to listen with Windows Media Player. I’ll at some point spruce this up and add it to the F.A.Q section along with a video and a step by step on how to use other popular media players to listen to the “Snakeice House of Beats” show.
Wanted some beats to wind down after a nice workout at the gym and still pumped up so hitting the beats wild and hard for a while. Head nodding beats from several eras and genres recognize that Shi….uff.
