DUFM - Dual Universe Radio Online - Looking for Content Submissions and Recruiting Help

Recommended Posts

After a bit of a hiatus for -reasons- I am pressing forward with continuing the development of a Dual Universe specific online radio station. 

 

This is being done under the banner of the in-game organization, "Alioth Broadcasting Corporation"

 

I am currently working with one other person making this a reality, and we currently have a radio stream running for demo purposes that has the following capabilities:

 

  • 24/7 Broadcasting
  • AutoDJ'd playlists 
  • Scheduled DJ's (where DJ's can login during their assigned timeslots for live broadcasting)
  • Real-time Album Art Retrieval

 

The general things one would expect from an online radio stream.

 

My wife, who is super awesome, is currently working on a website for people who want to listen live on the web as well. This should be ready within a few days, but ongoing modifications will be made to it to add features like album artwork refreshing in real-time and an interactive schedule for shows. I also plan on eventually adding archived shows automatically, though that may not be ready for some time. 

 

 

All of that being said, the station is not ready for mass consumption, as we have several things we want to get in place before we give it out to the world. Which brings me to the purpose of this post.

 

We are currently looking for people who would like to contribute, more specifically the following: 

 

  • #1 priority at the moment for me is finding an artist who would like to help make logos (for the website, as well as the mobile apps)
  • We are taking submissions of all types of content, and anyone who has music/shows/podcasts/commercials/whatever is welcome to submit content that will be broadcast on the station. This includes recruitment advertisements from ANY organizations (must be safe for work). 
  • We are taking applications for people who would be interested in dj'ing live on the station, this is not limited to music but also anyone who might want to run a talk show or anything along those lines. Again, any organizations are welcome to take part in this. If you want an hour-long show talking about your org every week, you are more than welcome to do so. 

 

 

I am currently working on an iOS application (DUFM) that will make its way into the App store where you can listen to the station live on your iOS devices. In conjunction with this work, an Android application is also being developed. When both applications are ready for distribution, I will work on getting them into their respective app stores for downloading. They will remain 100% free forever. I estimate they should be ready for distribution before the end of the month, perhaps sooner if we can get the artwork squared away. Honestly, the only thing holding them back at the moment is artwork that needs to be created or modified. 

 

 

All of this is being done for the community for free, I will not charge for publishing content, nor will I charge anyone to listen to the station ever. I won't accept donations for this either. The purpose of this isn't to make money, it's to bring audio content to the community. I would like for this to be a community-driven thing, hence anyone being allowed to submit content for broadcasting. I will not charge money (real or in-game) for ads being published on the station either. I'm not here to make a quick buck off people in any form. 

 

If you're interested in submitting content, have questions, or are wanting to help out in any way, please contact me on discord @ http://discord.me/dualuniverse . I most likely will not be responding to replies on this thread.

 

Alternatively, applications for a spot on the schedule (talk show/dj) can be filled out here: https://goo.gl/forms/H3GIX9sJQH3f6r7n1

This is great. Do you have the same name on discord?

 

I do, but we've gotten in contact now so this is more for anyone else who comes along with the same question :P

Good stuff, would really like to see an Eve Online Radio equivalent here. Despite the disagreements over it in the past, don't think anyone wanted it to flop, so glad it's coming back. I'm sure BOO would like a segment on there.

You sir, are a contributor to DU-society, asking nothing in return. You could have done Organization-Ads for source of in-game-quanta-revenue, like how Insurance are advertised in radios by voice, but you did not choose any of these.

If only we have our concept of noble-peace-prize-award or national/foreign-recognition of honor, I will nominate you to it. :)

Thank you, I would like your post if I hadn't run out already today >_<

This idea is absolutely fantastic! I would love to participate.

 

Please do! We're going to need all the ads and content we can get!


I've been listening to the station as I've set it up, and with the ads we've received so far, it sounds really bada**!

Nice to see this idea is revived. I might want to do air some shorter segments, like 5 minute segments. By the way, what is your policy on being foulmouthed if you have a talkshow? Can you say what you want or do you prefer minimum usage of bad language so to speak?

I don't have a policy on it, just no pornography (obviously).

I would ask that you hold off on too much profanity until the app goes through the store approval process, because they have to run the app to verify it adheres to their rules and if they happen to tune in while people are cursing it might not get approved. That shouldn't take too long though.

Alright thanks for the answer, i'll probably send a thing through your form soon. And wait with getting into it until the app approval

Just wanted to add some updates here about the current progress.

 

  • We have a few DJ's signed up. 
  • DJ's are assisting with uploading music to the server (this does not put them on a playlist). 
  • We have over 50gb of music uploaded so far.
  • We have several commercials running at intervals (every 8 songs) but I am going to change that behavior as we get more ads.
  • Several people on the schedule (although not configured on the server yet).
  • The iOS app needs images to be complete. It syncs with Apple computers too, such that you get a cool little icon on your taskbar if you're using chrome that you can use to search for the currently playing song online. 
  • We need producers. Producers are people who manage playlists and schedules. I'm not just allowing anyone to do this, as it's a bit of a big responsibility. 
  • Work is ongoing on the website, but should be somewhat usable very soon.

 

If you want to test out the stream, send me a pm on discord :)

This is really coming together already! I spoke with Yamamushi and told him I was interested in doing a radio show with Minermax555. He had me fill out a simple application which asked about the type of media I wanted to do (a talk show) and a few ideas on what I'd discuss. Then, I was in. He had me scheduled for a time slot that fit my personal schedule perfectly and I was ready. Now the rest of the process is on me and Max. Content has to be developed and various aspects planned. Yama made the process simple and to the point. I am extremely impressed with the setup he has so far and I know it's going to get even better. Hats off to you Yamamushi for such an exciting idea!
