WXB102 The Rebirth

George Frederick


After months of trying and testing different chat applications and delivery systems, we have finally come with a site that offers ease of use and a reliable delivery system.  


WXB on the Internet started its live webcast operations at Live365 with a handful of listeners.  We usually would open with just about 3 listeners and average about a dozen listeners.  This was achieved with a staff of 5 live DJ's.  These were The Ghost, Mick Flame, Julius Caesar, Naughty Natty, and yours truly, George Frederick, and, when off the air, the server would kick it with recorded shows made by Cool Carla, The Morning Man, The Sandman, DJ Hilary, and DJ Klyde - all under the leadership of Michael Sutton.  We had more staff on WXB than we had listeners.


After almost 5 years with Live365, WXB ran out of funds, and was not able to pay for our broadcasts to go live.  I found a way to keep the broadcasts going using a combination of free internet radio sites like Hayag and Sopcast.  The funny thing was that we were still using Live365 as our base of operations.  This had to change, and hence, we had to find a new home for operating the station.  


Welcome to the new WXB102 Internet Radio Site!


While the site was ready for use about a week before we finally moved operations to this site, I was hesitant to open the site for operations since there were some features on the wishlist that could not be implemented at the time.  


I would admit that there is still a lot to improve in this new site.  So far, we have received wonderful and positive feedback to the site.  You may have noticed that the track artists and titles are missing on our site, and I will work to get that working as soon as I figure out how to do it.   


Thank you for your continued patronage.

-George Frederick

That is why they call you the God...:) My wife was asking when I brought her to one of Pogz gig and she was asking who is the dude with a long hair and like everyone is asking to take a photo of him...I told her, he is one of the reason why I became me today...a dude with a good sense of taste in music and know the purpose of each genre. :) And who is Pogz she asked...I told her a former schoolmate now an angel cast "up" from hell. Now seated at the right hand of the Father (George Frederick). :)

cool george frederick..... where you the sound eng at concert tech you laid downthe tracks on the one we recorded back in 99 hook me up ..... i need a copy of the songs......lol cool wxb 102 live julius ceasar..... butch...... chickerrr pa rin ba


Hello Dingdong,
I don't have any of the materials I recorded at Concertech. They did have back up copies, but they can only be read by an Otari Radar multitrack recorder. I think they sold that machine to ABS-CBN after Concertech moved to a new location.
Cheers!
