Silence must end
February 1st, 2014It's been a while. After quite the silence and inactivity, I'm going to confidently say there will be some change in progress for Radio Youkai and more will be explained sometime this month. For now after some recent choices I made, I feel confident and even more so with the stability of the radio's server.
Speaking of which, the weekend(Feb.1-Feb.2) that I post this, there will be a few times where I'll stop the radio for a few minutes for maintenance or even suddenly change a song in the middle of one so please try not to be surprised and or panic or (insert other reaction here). It's all part of progress :)
Status of Radio
December 9th, 2013Hey there all, it's been a while since I decided to write anything up here. I mainly wanted to do so because I had some really bad hardware issues(that could've been my fault -.-) recently that I thankfully took care of in the past hour before I wrote this, so in case anyone wondering why the radio was down at the time. Anyhow, I know not much has been improving in terms of radio stability, at least until now, I tried to make sure once again that the radio shouldn't crash every couple weeks, at least we'll see how that goes... I have been putting more music into the playlist at least within the last time I ever wrote anything here a couple months ago, so at least that's something. As soon as I finish some real life business I have to deal with this week, I'm finally in the clear to once again actually do something besides add music with this radio.
I should be sleeping.... Happy listening... good night.
Radio is fixed, sorta
October 7th, 2013By the time I'm writing this, the radio server itself is now live, however it will take time for it to apply to this accursed radio tuna player I've embedded in this website, so if you are here and it's not working then just resort to going to the shoutcast website and look up the radio name there or use winamp if you wish to do so for the same reason. I had to go through a lot after the hell I went through with routing everything with my ISP account being reopened with new equipment and whatnot so I didn't have a lot of time to do a whole lot of improving but at least the server has better speeds now. I will be doing more subtle maintainances to the radio server itself once no one is actually listening to it at the moment. I have a lot of catching up to do for the radio, however I do have some classwork in college I have to focus as well so there won't be much rapid improvement but I do what I can. Thank you for your time and happy listening.
P.S. AWA 2013 was amazing, check out our facebook page for cosplay pics I took and whatnot :P
AWA 2013 and admin name switch
September 9th, 2013Pictures, Videos, Livestreams? Vlogs? Who knows. Hey there all, If you followed the FB page, you'd know I'm going to AWA and having questionably mention the possibility of me livestreaming while I'm there, well here's how it goes. I can't do any of the 4 I mentioned at ZUN's panel because rules and such say so but anywhere else I could. I'll be randomly livestreaming throughout the weekend and posting vlogs maybe once I feel them being necessary. Where to check up on these you may ask? Well I'll be answering 2 things at once.
Yep I'm no longer using Dez as my name but Joeybeta which is my personal username. I will most likely say in about at least an hour ahead of time of my stream sessions and also the 1st time you'll see my face if you haven't already. :3 Of course I'll be posting pics as well on the facebook page so keep an eye out on that. That is all.
Steam Group Page and music requests
August 31st, 2013Also I'm tired, HI EVERYONE. So the Steam group page is up now and you can check that out on the bottom of this post or search it up yourselves if you wish.
About this whole music request thing I talked about on a facebook post yesterday, I want to be open to music requests you would like to hear on the radio, whether I currently have them on the playlist or not. The reason is I want you guys help me build this playlist as well as I don't want to blindly add all those months straight worth of Touhou arranges I have and not knowing some of them could contain the sorts of podcast-like tracks or short 3 second tracks, etc. Also it helps expand the amount of music on the radio playlist from circles that are currently not on the radio that even I'm not exactly familiar with yet that you may know about. So request away once you catch me up on the group chat on steam today and I'll play them on the radio. In the future, I'll find ways of making it more easier to arrange these kind of request events.
Radio Youkai Steam Group
C84 Touhou album streaming begins
August 16th, 2013And so it begins, with about 21 hours into the c84 playlist, this should last the whole day :3
Another thing I want to note is listening options. It's kinda annoying to deal with radio tuna but it's something we have to use in the mean time, if you wish to use another source, I recommend using winamp and searching for "radio youkai" with the shoutcast plug in. You can also go on the shoutcast website and search for the radio there or search it with a shoutcast powered radio app for you mobile users. We'll work to making listening convenient on the website in the future. Thank you and happy listening.
C84 Stream and radio status and hello :3
August 15th, 2013Hi there all to the new and to the few who've been following me. As I've mentioned on a previous post, I will begin the C84 album stream at the dawn of tomorrow(16th 5AM pacific time) depending on where you live so have that forward to listen to on the radio. :)
In terms of radio status, I've had some heavy hiccups with the server in the past few days and I'm working on keeping it doesn't happen again. I wish to have the radio streaming at all times when possible. We(the radio youkai team) are still working on a revamp for the site but don't know when we'll expect to finish so hope for a September release maybe. It will even have a new theme. :3 Well that is all the news I can think of at the top of my head.
OH also we may make a Steam group so look forward to that if you are interested since that will be used for chatting in the mean time till we have something chat related on the site.
Welcome to the launch of Radio Youkai
August 10th, 2013Hey there all, I do have to say this is still in a "beta" stage if you will and there is a lot to revamp for this site and the radio as well. I hope this beta stage is presentable enough for some :3 also we wanted to hit launch on the weekend of C84 now that it's here and all.
You may call me Dez for now, I am the radio manager, partial graphic designer, and the founder of Radio Youkai. My 2 team members have worked and still working on original art/partial graphic designing and web designing respectively. They will reveal and greet themselves either on here or most likely on our Facebook page we also have.
Radio Youkai has an undefined future ahead with so many plans, features, and events I have ahead for it and I don't wish to back out of them either. Speaking of which, since it is C84 I wanted to announce a marathon of C84 Touhou albums to be streamed here on Radio Youkai hopefully starting the beginning of next weekend once we get a hold of them. We will also be posting about this and anything related(or somewhat not related) to Radio Youkai on our Facebook page as well. Thank you all for discovering this and hope you enjoy this adventure.
