Shameless Plug

I have just launched my own Internet Radio Station called "The Blue Train." It left the (train) station this morning at 5:am--hopefully for a long ride.

The music is "Mellow Album Rock" and the presentation is simply a lot of back to back music, programmed by me, and station ID's recorded by KIKO announcer Willie Powers. (And today you won't even hear very many station ID's.)

I have to reach a certain listenership level within nine months to stay on the Radionomy server, so please check it out and let me know what you think.

Thank you!
