|In late October of 2006 two brothers, and
their wives, drove from Rochester, NY to the
Outerbanks of North Carolina for a vacation.
exhausting the supply of music that they brought
with them, they began to search for radio
stations that pleased them. They discovered that
there was and is a flourishing beach
music scene in the southeast. This
beach music, as it was called,
sounded an awful lot like the "rhythm and
blues" or "soul" music that they
had grown up with and still preferred to listen
to. The brothers were very happy campers for the
entire vacation and were sorry to lose the music
stations when they had to return north.
One of the brothers was a free-lance computer
techie who had an idea. As a present for his
elder brother, the techie researched how to and
then created an online internet radio station. He
didnt have much in mind other than making
his brother smile and proving to himself that it
could be done. He created a two-hour loop of
songs that they had heard and remembered on their
vacation to North Carolina and sent his brother
an email with a link to the station.
After a few configuration problems to begin with,
the older brother was able to hear the
station and enjoy the music.
The experiment blossomed into what we have all
known as FNSTRadio.com. The station went live,
complete with website, on November 5th,
On August 24, 2015, at 0400 EDT, FNSTRadio
will cease to broadcast. It was a great run for
over eight and a half years and it has been great
fun. The pressures of life have become too great
and we can no longer maintain the station in the
style that we envisioned.
That experiment grew to a radio station with a
3500+ song list that ran for twenty-four hours a
day, seven days a week. We are very proud of what
we created and hope that you all enjoyed it.
We were lucky enough to be discovered by
hundreds of folks all around the world, and are
honored to call many of those folks personal
friends. FNSTRadio.com introduced us to one
another and we shared our lives through the gift
of our music.
Thank you one and all for sharing this time
with us, we hope we brought a smile to you and
Its ALL about the Music! CT
