Discoteria To Shut Down October 30

cropped-banner4.jpgIt’s with saddened heart that we announce that Discoteria will be going off air Sunday October 30th.  Unfortunately we weren’t able to meet our required ‘overall listening hours per day’ (see the Oct 1st post for full details) as required by Radionomy.  While our overall listening hours did pick up for a brief period, over the past 7-10 days, we’ve seen a steady decline in listenership resulting in us falling drastically short of our targeted 12 hours per day average.  (As of this posting the station is only averaging 3 hours per day.)

We’ve enjoyed every minute of our ride on Radionomy.  We received a few email’s from listeners saying they enjoyed the station and the music we played, but despite those messages, it’s clear the vast majority of listeners didn’t (based on the low overall listing average per day).  And while I would love to keep the station on air, clearly something isn’t working.  I did what I could to promote the station (business cards, flyers, links on various radio sites, etc) and tried to keep the programming fresh and updated with new tracks added on a regular basis.  I guess it wasn’t enough.

Anyway, I just wanted to say thank you to all of the listeners who enjoyed what we did and supported Discoteria by listening to it on a regular basis.  The support was very much appreciated.

So, now all that’s left to say is ‘goodbye’.

Thank You for Your Support!

Thank you to our Discoteria listeners for your continued support.  We really appreciate and value it.

Our overall total listening hours have picked up but unfortunately we’re still short of the 12 hr per day average we have to maintain.  In order to keep Discoteria on air we still need your continued support.

Tune In and Listen!

Please tune in and listen to our station as often and for as long as possible using one of these broadcast options:

Radionomy: http://www.radionomy.com/en/radio/discoteria3/index

Spread The Word!

You can help get the word out by telling all your friends, family and co-workers about Discoteria. The more listeners we get the better. More listeners = longer listening hours.

Listen Frequently!

By listening to Discoteria on an on-going and frequent basis, this will help bring up our “minimum audience hours required” and will continue to keep Discoteria on the air. If we don’t achieve these hours, I’m sure you’d hate to see us leave the airwaves – that means you won’t be able to hear all those classic club and chart disco tunes, our weekly broadcasts of Stephen L. Freeman’s Back To Music and other programming.

Your continued support of Discoteria is greatly appreciated. We’re sure that together we can meet, and maintain, the goal.

Thank you.

DISCOTERIA’s DAYS ARE NUMBERED!

apocalypse-jpg-638x0_q80_crop-smart

I hate to begin a post with such a declaration but in some ways this couldn’t be further from the truth!

Yesterday, (September 30th), I received my “Listener Threshold” notice from Radionomy which stated as follows:

Discoteria we are writing to to remind you of the various broadcaster listener thresholds to achieve in order to allow Radionomy to keep Discoteria on its platform:

Radio Station Age – Threshold – Minimum Audience required:

-3 months – Basic – 12 hours/day
-3–9 months – Advanced  – 130 hours/day
-9 months – Premium – 130 hours/day

This means that in one month’s time, the first assessment will take place and you will need to have achieved an average audience of 12 hours/day for the preceding thirty days.

130 hours/day must then be acquired at the end of 9 months.

In plain English, if we do not maintain an average of 12 hours per day and don’t continue to maintain this average, Radionomy will be removing Discoteria from their broadcasting platform. In short, this means Discoteria will be forced off the air. We’re sure as faithful listeners you would not like to see this happen.

So how does this affect you, our listeners?

It means we need your support to keep Discoteria on air.
