What is an Internet Radio Station (aka web radio)?
An internet radio station is a radio station that broadcasts over the internet, allowing listeners with an internet connection to tune in from anywhere in the world. So the most obvious benefit of using internet radio is you don't have to be in our area to listen to our great music.
While we can and do reach the whole world, as our slogan says, our target listening area is “from the bow to the badlands”. In real terms, we have regular listeners in: Calgary, Conrich, Chestermere, Langdon, Indus, Lyalta, Cheadle, Carseland, Mossleigh, Arrowwood, Siksika Nation, Gleichen, Strathmore, Irricana, Biesiker, Acme, Linden, Rosebud, and Drumheller.
When you're listening to audio streams your computer downloads small portions of data, usually a little faster than you listen to it, and discards the portions once you’ve gone past. This means that you never have to have a fully-downloaded file on your computer.
