A New Year, a New Website

Written by on December 11, 2018

I won’t begin to pretend this is fully functional. Have had hands in code from Canadian HQ, San Francisco, Austin, and Central California, and it’s at least moderately functional. There’s still much build-out to be done before we implode our older imprint, but the hope is to make the site more engaging and easier to use. At the very least, we have an embedded player, artist/track metadata in real time, and the graphical premise that the station needs to run. Translating from old website to new has been a brutal process, and I have no doubt that we’ll experience some loss in the transition. Such is life. We’ll make adjustments for usability and data access as we can, hopefully will make this more usable for all. Thank you for your patience as we complete the transition.

    So far, so good, I’m loving the new site. If there’s just a way to get the player to auto re-start after going to a new page on the site, it would be awesome!

      It’s coming together. Player should be consistent from page to page, save for the “shop” link, which shouldn’t have a player to begin with for enhanced security reasons. Thanks for kicking the tires!

    Hey DJ Heretic – I like the new look of the site! I actually work during the day in usability/interaction design. And I also write a blog called musicux.com. I’d LOVE to help as a way to giving back to the station. How does that sound? My email address is tommyg711@gmail.com
