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.
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: www.radionomy.com/en/radio/discoteria3/index
- Yourmuze.FM: www.yourmuze.fm/webplayer/discoteria2
- Radioguide.FM: www.radioguide.fm/internet-radio-canada/discoteria

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.
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.
