Don't bytch about the problem , try being part of the solution.

So got off air and for shyts and giggles bummed another computer and listened in on yesterdays show. As usual the feud of software between my computer and spreaker.com's continues. As long as I play programming out of external sources such as my tape decks etc it sounds super, but use the track player that pulls pieces from my computer and interfaces with spreaker.com the damn thing echos. I had that problem once with Spreaker in Evanston, Wyoming, to the point that one of their people finally called me and we tried for days to fix the problem. Seems as though the unheard thing here is you need to have a battery of computers to stream on Spreaker.com  (.) Now if this were the case say like on Livestream.com I would agree, yet this was not the problem on Livestream, I never had an echo on Livestream. So why doesn't Spreaker.com admit there's a problem, and go in and rewrite software to solve the problem? But that's only part of the situation. And its rampant all over FakeBook. For every topic on there, you will find maybe if your lucky 1 or two possible solutions, the rest will be from people who only know how to bytch, yet have no answer or solution to the problem your having. I've seen this on all kinds of groups and or pages. Some service tech asks for a bit of tech help, fixing a truck, maybe two have an answer, the rest on there just want to joke or insult the guy needing help. My parents, grandparents and all used to say if ya'll can't say something nice or beneficial, shut the heck up. As for the stations sound, yes I know it needs help, going through a different system like say Live365, might help, but I looked at their set up, and it was a nightmare to set up. Where-as when I set up Spreaker, it took maybe an hour, and I was on air. Now to be fair to Spreaker, yes it is their problem, but I had it nearly cured prior to the move here to Wendell Idaho from Evanston Wyoming. During the move Ole Bessie and radio gear did get bounced around a bit, settings went askew and I have had problems since. Not to mention the turtles speed IP connection. Time to call in experts, hey I fix motorcycles and tow, I'm not a computer geek.
As I close this morning; I noticed something last night before I went to bed. As I turned completely off my tiny laptop, and the wifi CenturyLink Modem stopped flashing for a few seconds then started up. With my computer off, no traffic should have been the condition, and as such no flashing on the modem from CenturyLink. With it flashing I knew someone was piggy backing or hacking my wifi, and using it for themselves. Now you may say hey , " You did that with your lady racing friend in Gooding" Yes I did, but I first told her I was, two I helped pay for her service and three did chores to help her. So it wasn't like I was stealing it. That said someone in my neighborhood is plundering my wifi, which is fine, but they're going to be tweaked when it goes silent in two and a half weeks, guess they'll have to get their own. Now you may ask do you have proof of their plundering? Yes and no, can I point to the culprit? No. But seems when certain neighbors are in Church, in bed or at school my speed increases, however when the rug rats and porch monkeys are at home and awake and they're stuck inside my bandwidth and speed decreases. Don't take Sherlock Holmes to figure it out.
So in close to those on Internet places on FakeBook and others, am I aware the network streams sound like crap, but we are working hard to fix the malady, and instead of bytch, elect to help fix. 
See Ya'll on air at 09:00 MST

Wolf Bark for Saturday Morning, Am I the last intelligent person in radio or on the planet

Well good Saturday morning, time for my lazy can to get out of bed , considering I've been in part vacation mode for three days. 
Went over to Evanston Wyoming to scout on some new digs for KSOA(formerly KEVA) AM 1240 there, and our new FM Companion there 107.7 KSOA FM there of. With that my fave lady and I decided to transport ourselves via horseback,(been years since I have been on a 4 leg horse) and go up to the transmission towers there just outside WoodRuff Utah on the Wyoming desert. So we get there, do some slight repairs, Syd knows tools, and so it was night. So Syd and I roasted some marshmelows and talked on life. In short a nice time to be had by all.
Okay then, as you all know we have been in talks with the people who produce Business Rockstars. This is both a TV and Radio show, that discuss's things pertaining to small and medium start up business's. Something that many of you who snag gears and consume diesel are into. After all Owner Operator Truckers are the second largest SMB seconded to by only the home country farmers, in America. So now we are into the final stretches of signing the papers and getting this on all four of our regional stations. Yet there seems to be crap over crap on a cracker getting there, much more so, than when we signed up with the Overdrive Truckers News/Top Ten Countdown in 1998. Both were done on a barter, we aired they sent programming, we sold ads on it, they aired their ads on our station free, both of us were happy. Two weeks prior to airing Overdrive Radio, sent us liners or program ID's along with the shows music bed so we could build our own ID's for the shows. That's where Bill Mack aka Midnight Cowboy?WBAP out of Texas, could not say our call letters KTOW right, it was always saying like COW, not Toe, as in KAY-TOW/KTOW. Okay then but here we are dancing with Radio One. Now I don't know, maybe its the fact that the people who work and book through Radio One, for Business Rockstars as well as BIZTalk Radio, of which the only reason we even looked at them was two shows, of course Business Rockstars and Dan Cilia. Past those two, quite really BIZRadio, has no interest. How about A TV show of and about Truckers and trucking, remember friends if you got it a truck brought it, or at least hauled it. What about production Agriculture, hey we all need to eat. Nope you see little TV and or radio any more on Agri-business. Used to be when I was a wolf pup, when I'd be eating my oatmeal ready to walk and I mean walk the 4 miles to school, all there was on Radio was farm news. What happened? Sure we went urban, but still don't anyone care where their food comes from? But I'm getting off track. What is HazzardAyre(air) Radio has 4 of our original stations on air again, with 5 others we sold years ago ready to refire in central Utah, western Nevada, Western Oregon, and southwestern Washington. Is it that hard to look at our website at www.ktowfm.com which is being rebuilt by our biker friend in Florida , as well as do a Google search for anything HazzardAyre or HazzardAyre Radio, heck for a short time HazzardAyre even had a Wikipedia listing. Or for that matter look up AyreWolf Aviation, AyreWolfFM? It's not the fact we are obscure, just too many people don't know how to spell. Or spell Confederately. Is it that we do support today's Confederacy? In educating people who do not know about the truths that all too many want to disguard or throw under the bus? We are about to sweep up 5 more stations other than the ones we already have, KVSI out of Montpelier Idaho, one out of Jackson Hole Wyoming, one that went silent in Tremonton Utah one that we abandoned in American Falls Idaho, one just outside of Arco Idaho. The bottom line, thanks to the FCC getting rid of two regs, paper filings and resident studios, our towers and transmitters can be anywhere, all needs to be in the towns of license is a small office and a decent internet connection. With our expansions of footprint, you'd think that Business RockStars and those who distribute it and all the rest, would quit dancing around and just send me a contract so we can get em on the air. Sure I'm a big fan of Alex Wehrley she is one of the most gifted radio/TV interviewers second to only Howard Stern that I have ever heard or seen. Granted we are the most rebellious and radical radio group ever, one that is not against the idea of fighting the system, and yes we do play in politics, but then and I can't understand the objection , since I can point to several of BIZTV/BIZTALK Radio's shows that do to, and yes we are a bit more aggressive than most. But when all to many stations, and program networks have gone dark, have lost the love of radio, and have lost the fondness of just going out to their trucks radio turned it on and took a listen, to radio, well we are there. LIVE for the most part, 24/7/365, especially when there's bad weather. Know of a better news and/or weather spotter, than a tow trucker out there with a cell phone and a mini cam? We did it right, we still do, from every point across America, HazzardAyre Radio, Maximum Overdrive, and Talking Toews is in the air somewhere, either over the air, or online through Livestream.com or www.spreaker.com/ayrewolf . 
As I quit writing, go to taking a needed bath and getting ready to go on air to wake ya'll up on this Saturday, when I got in yesterday morning, I went in took off my clothes and went to bed, Did not wake up until 02:30 that's 2:30 AM for you none military folks out there, and I hit my bunk. Thanks to my crews for going on air and keeping you in the groove. Again , are we the only radio group doing it right? And two am I and my staff the only intelligent persons in radio? 
See ya'll in a few on KTOW FM and of course online on www.spreaker.com/ayrewolf just look for KnyteWolf Radio

When did dedicated become not dedicated but pirated? When its done by neighbors who don't have it.

If you ask why am I not yet on air here right now? It's because the so called Dedicated connection to all things Internet is not all that Dedicated or secure. It just might and I say might be due to nearby neighbors who don't have tapping into the flow. Reason I say this? When they are not home or asleep the flow is much faster, fewer glitches and a better stream, both down as well as up. When they are home, or awake things slow down, which is why I try to time the hours on air as well as online to when the neighbors are as said awake and or home, such as school hours, weekdays during overnight hours, and as well as weekends while they are at Church. Makes one wonder why the heck I'm still here at all. I said in April last year after I had to give up going to NAB because of PoohBear, and subsequently left me, that if I moved here to western Idaho from Wyoming that I didn't want to be kicking myself in the arse in a year. Guess what I'm not only kicking myself in the arse, I'm also beating myself up. Sure its warmer here weather wise, but everything else is much colder, the supposedly advancement that was sold to us as an organization as well as myself isn't that advanced. Sure Evanston Wyoming wasn't and isn't a hot bed of intelligence or advanced technology , however experts are an hour even in the worse weather away. Salt Lake City, as well as Provo, which has the title of the Silicon Valley of the Mountains. Every one said ah but Idaho's taxes are so much lower, really? Then why am I paying through the stratosphere in rent? Sure I did have a section 8 over there which gave me some wiggle room, but because I left much sooner than I wanted to, due to promises made by Cable-One that I forgot to give notice I was moving and as such , lost the section 8. So now have to pay full rent price.  All this said I relocated for a stupid reason to renew my licenses, and two for PoohBear. PoohBear needs some serious mental reconditioning. She blames everyone for her screw ups. Sure I could do that, and I'd be justified in doing so, but when I screw up, I admit it, apologize to anyone I offended and move on. Example and its another part of this here. 
Last October I had a oppurtunity to move in with a slightly older woman down in Hollister Idaho. The $200.00 a month with utilities was a no brainer. But Shelly says don't do it. But I still had every intention to doing so, especially when the local fuzz showed up, when Shelly called em and said she was locked in my bathroom. Really? In reality Shelly was 2500 miles away in Florida, then she says the neighbors caused it. Really, the neighbors didn't care. Then a gal from back east somewhere named Tracy was coming out, Shelly was all in a uproar, but hey I needed the second income to maintain operations, and two the troubles in the neighborhood was getting a bit much. Then Friday eve I go to the Depot Grill, learn from one of our Sister Wolvez that PoohBear had texted her over Facebook, in a rather threatening manner. Most of the time I'd let this go, but I have heard this from way too many people, especially women whom PoohBear considers a threat to our domestic tranquility. If her and I are to stay together, after April, headed to a June/July marriage, its going to depend on 4 things, continued dues to the WolfPack, two; serious counseling to get over some very serious mental trauma , and cure this terrible lack of self worth and self confidence. Heck just overnight last night her texts and such , if I showed those to authorities which I have kept, they'd lock her up for attempted suicide or harm to herself and others, the things I have seen her write, whew, let's call it felony city. But I stay with her because she has stayed loyal to me, and the WolfPack, and because I love her, if I didn't I would have ejected from this burning aircraft months ago. But to be safe I am looking for somewhere that I, and I alone can afford. That way if I have to bail, I can do so and still keep a roof over my head. 
Any flyte will see ya'll at 13:00 after Church today on, www.spreaker.com/ayrewolf KTOW FM 105.7
