January 14 will bring a very special two-hour Green Day celebration, put on by Luke "Diamond" Phillips and myself. Here's a link to a rather large poster for the show.
For those of you who weren't there for the first two back in 2011, or for those of you who were there and forgot, here's pretty much the show in a nutshell:
Luke and I are a couple volunteer college radio DJ's. We don't get paid for what we do, and we're on a non-profit station. We do it because we love it. And for two hours, we're going to play not just Green Day tunes, but Green Day-related tunes. Get ready for the Network, Foxboro Hot Tubs, Pinhead Gunpowder, the Frustrators, the Boo and more.
Did Green Day cover another band's song? We might play the original.
Did another band cover a Green Day song? You bet that's getting played.
Was a member of Green Day involved in another band's song? You're going to hear it.
All the while, you can tweet @wxou and text 1-248-838-WXOU (9968).
In the 120 minutes allotted to us, we're going to attempt to cram in as many Green Day and Green Day-related tracks as possible. Between tunes, we'll be checking the texts and tweets, geeking out, and (dare I say it) having a blast.
GDA and GDC were both amazing at getting the word out for the first two specials, and for that I'm extremely grateful. I sincerely hope you'll help make this one just as awesome.
And it's never too early to get in some requests. Got any sort of GD or GD-related song you want to hear? Ask away in this very thread.
Thanks. I hope my shameless plug is in the right section of the forum.
By request, here's the website for the live stream:
Yet another edit! Someone asked me how they could tune into WXOU's live stream on mobile devices. I'm going to tackle the two most popular mobile options out there at the moment: Android-based devices and Apple's iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad.
Android: The free version of WinAmp for mobile devices will work handily. Open it, click the "Shoutcast" button, and search for WXOU. Alternately, you can click the "Shoutcast" button, scroll down to "manually enter URL," and enter one of the following:
http://wxou.oakland....8000/listen.pls will take you to the high-quality stream
http://wxou.oakland....8002/listen.pls will take you to a low-bandwidth stream
iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch: Admittedly I don't own an iDevice, but here's how it works as I understand it. Download the Shoutcast app and search for WXOU. Alternately, you can manually enter one of the two URLs above.
If anyone has any help for Blackberry / Windows Phone devices, let me know. I'll copy/paste it into this post so everything stayss at the top of the page.
