Welcome to Guest(s)/Announcements:
Executive Board Member Announcements:
Rich met with the MXCC IT director to see what we need technically to get started. They sound receptive to the idea. We were concerned last week that we would not get the support we needed from them and looked into / got a quote from Securenetsystems.net who has a tiered plan $49 month / 300 listeners, $99 month for 600 /unlimited plan goes for $200 month.
The IT director recommended we use Nicecast, an open source system and use an interface with it that goes for $45. This software links with the schedule and automation software – which we would need to get.
To get started we could create daily playlists in itunes and kick them off manually
Next week, we will try to meet with Yvonne Page, the MXCC webmaster – to see about getting a link to our Nicecast server from the mxcc.edu site – and also if they will give us access to a server to host our own radio station website someday.
Rich will look into getting funding for the Nicecast interface and the domain name registration.
Open Floor Discussion:
The tour ended sometime between 1:00-2:00pm
