We hope your holiday season was enjoyable, that you were loved and able to love on some others as well.
It's 2016, new copyright laws went into effect this month, and they say more are to come, we shall wait and see.
For now here are some updates that we have done with the station, and the website. Some are required by the new laws, some are just ways that we try to keep things fresh and exciting around here.
Top 25 Countdown Polls - we are discontinuing these polls for a number of reasons, however we will continue to post the most played songs on 3R Radio, so that you know what we play, and that we are (or maybe were not) playing your song.
Top 25 Countdown Show - Weekends were made for countdowns, and were moving ours to Saturdays at noon. Of course don't forget we air the "official" national chart from Paul Gibson and the Christian Rock 20 on Saturday nights (midnight) and Sunday's (7pm) as well.
Interactive Indie Spotlight Show - Interaction is the thing of the future, if it was 2005, today it is the thing of TODAY. We thought why not put the technology to use in a new and exciting way, keep our listeners involved in what we play, and support the indie artists/bands in a new way. So, we bring you the Interactive Indie Spotlight show. Each week you will be given the opportunity to vote for one of 5 indie artists, at the conclusion of the weekly poll we will then bring you up to an hour (depending on how much of their music we have in our library) of that band/artists music. From there, the remaining 4 acts carry over to the next week, with a new band added to replace the winning band from the current week. It is not by chance that we place this poss on our "indie page". We encourage you to get to know these bands, listen to their music, and yes you can vote for your friends band, but vote for the other guys too from time to time, especially if you dig their music.
Monday Moanin' - There used to be a column that I read regularly in the Detroit Free Press as a kid. It was called Monday Moanin with Bob Talbert. Well were copying that idea and bringing you the Monday Moanin radio show. Various topics of discussion with music, and eventually a way for you to call in during the show. Monday's at 11am.
