On the previous hours we were thinking about a new way to keep broadcasting all our current featured programs, so we proposed a new project, the KPOPWAY MIXTAPE CHANNEL. You can read here for reference.
After reading all your valuable feedback on that project, we finally decided to do the following:
- Start a new channel called KPOPWAY MIXTAPE, to broadcast there only our featured artists programs, two times a day at first. That is, to broadcast two blocks of two hours each per day, music of Kim Hyun-joong, CNBLUE, FTISLAND, Jang Keun Suk, SS501 and JYJ. Possibly, and if DJ’s have time, BTS also. And if there is enough demand, a third broadcast for Europe/Africa.
- To cancel our current featured programs broadcast in our main kpopway.com channel, at the end of this month, as it was planned. So this main channel will be dedicated only to mixed kpop music and our DJ led programs.
- Kpopway Mixtape channel page, will be “ad supported”; that is, it will have advertising, to pay for the additional cost. So we won’t request donations to support this new channel. Anyway, we have updated our main crowdfunding campaign, to support our main channel and all related broadcasting costs. So if you appreciate Kpopway Radio, you can do a voluntary donation here, every once in a while.
- New channel won’t have any dedicated app, nor will be available on TuneIn radio or alternative websites. The only way to listen to it, will be using this link on this website, that will show advertising ads, every time you access to it. This is very important for us to be able to pay for this channel. Currently, we have put there our main channel radio player, but you can start using that link to support us with the advertising. Once the channel is created, the radio player there, will only broadcast the featured programs. From there you will be able to listen using any web browser (Safari, Chrome, Firefox, Explorer, Opera), on PC/Mac or mobiles.
- This new KPOPWAY MIXTAPE channel will be ready as soon as we have some extra funds available, for testing new server, at least for one month. It can be in a week, or in a few months. We don’t know exactly.
- During the first month of testing, if the advertising revenue in the web page, is not enough to keep paying for the channel, it will be shut down, without any option to open it again.
Hope you can enjoy KPOPWAY MIXTAPE soon, and we really hope it can be there forever. Cheers!
