WLVR Website September Update

Here is an update on what is going on with the website:

Missing Features

A few weeks ago, our website was doing something weird. We have hopefully fixed some of the issues that was causing things to go down but by doing that, we have disabled some features on the website. If you were using items such as the community forums, we’ll be working on restoring what we had. If you have any ideas on how to improve the site, please feel free to leave a comment.

Schedule

We’re all anticipating the switch over to the student shows of this year soon. Check back within the next few weeks for an updated schedule.

Comments

A reminder about comments on the website:
We do receive your comments you post on the website. However, posted comments will not show up immediately as it has to enter our queue for approval.

Keep rocking with us on the Valley’s #1 Preset.

Site Update News

It has been a long while but  we are proud to introduce some new updates to the site! You may have already noticed it but at least we should have an official announcement!

Long Distance Calling

You know, this feature has been here for a while. As you know, we have a local number to reach our station. If you are located in the US (maybe outside but somehow I doubt it), you can call us for free by having us call you! You can put your number into the Call Me button on the home page and Google will connect the calls together. Do note that unlike dialing the number directly, Google’s voicemail will pick up the call if the DJ working doesn’t. Leave a voicemail if you wish. Voicemails left with the Call Me button will be forwarded to our main email.

New Calendar

We have updated our calendar software on the website so we can keep up with the new shows each semester. More interactive on the outside and easier to update on the inside. Check it out on the home page to see what show is currently playing or on our schedule to see what we have weekly.

New Community

Vanilla forums was not working out too well so I have migrated it right into  our main site. Check out the new community! It is still empty so it is up to you to start some discussions up on any show or any topic. You can sign up to use the community on the login page.

Avatars can be changed on https://gravatar.com/

That is it for now. Hope everyone is enjoying WLVR!

Mr. Meanor

WLVR’s Mr. Meanor passed away Friday night. Richard Webster was a dear friend of WLVR’s. He broadcasted with us for over 12 years and his voice can be heard on much of our imaging. His voice will live on at LVR, his words will live on with his play “Another Christmas Carol” every Holiday season. We will miss him greatly.

In honor of WLVR’s dearly departed Mr. Meanor aka Richard Webster who sadly left this world on February 15, 2013:

Online Stream Interruptions

Status

There have been some small power interruptions at the station which brought down our streaming server for a bit. It is now back up and running so enjoy the show!

You think you can DJ?

Link

Although the service has been around for a while, we are introducing WLVR @ Turntable.fm!

Turntable is a social music site which connects you, your friends and others in a real time music listening experience. You can find a link to our private room where you can try your hand at DJ or listen to others who are part of us here at WLVR.

You can find the link under the new Community menu.

Note: You will need either a Facebook account or Twitter account to log in and get started. Also, if you log in after clicking the link, you may be moved to Turntable’s Lobby so to get back to the room, come click on the link again.

Also, the room may be a bit quite as it starts off but spread and we’ll see how it goes.
