The following is a copy of the text used in notecards throughout Second Life, for your info:
Thanks for taking this notecard about the KLR in-world radio station for Second Pride.
We wanted to explain to you what KLR Radio is and how it came about.
What it is:
It’s a 24 hour a day music radio station operated by AnthonyLovett , also known as DJ Tony.
The stream is in Second Life on Karuvium, on the railway station at Lalia, On various privately owned parcels and on the Second Pride East pier, and it is broadcast live from Anthony’s RL home from his home studio 24/7. The stream has an automatic backup in times of emergency, technical failure and Windows Updates, so you will never lose audio from KLR under normal circumstances.
KLR carries a broad mix of music. It occasionally has music features and competitions.
The station carries news on or close to the hour (5 minute bulletin) provided by the professional news outfit, FSN. (Feature Story News). Anthony has made it so that the news never cuts a song off before it ends, and so the news is not always precisely on the hour. There could be up to 3 minutes delay.
How it came about:
Anthony has been around the adult sims in SL for 8 years and has seen the decline of people going to clubs to hear music for numerous reasons. Not only have the attendances at many clubs and venues been hit, big name venues like Fire Island and others have gone. He also noticed that most SL derived local radio streams from parcel owners are very narrow in their choice of music, or simply a re-broadcast of real-world radio stations, thus offering no specific content appropriate to Second Life. Finally, He noticed that SL Radio has gone from Second Life, and so he sees an opportunity to fill that void, if only partially.
Anthony, in his real life was a professional radio presenter/producer for 23 years in the UK working freelance for both the BBC and commercial radio. He’s now semi retired, and wants to produce a radio station that is unique to SL, born in SL and available to anyone in SL, from sim owners and shopping mall owners to residents of Second Life who wish to program it into their in-world radio receivers or land settings, or listen on the hoof in-world (or in real-life).
