Thank you for the response. Yes, the GoatWorld Radio hyperlink takes you directly to the broadcast. This hyperlink is also located near the very top of the navigation page (look up). It's right underneath GoatWorld.Com Chatroom. Very soon however, the hyper link will take visitors to a page that explains all about GoatWorld Radio and some of the content nad from there offer the direct link(s) to the broadcast.
And just before anyone asks, we cannot "pre-announce" music as we can Interviews or features such as "Talk Radio". This is due to the fact that we adhere to FCC broadcast restrictions which prohibit giving potential listeners a "list" of songs to choose from.
Buffering has always been somewhat of a problem if the listener is connected to the Internet at 28Kbps or less. Even with 999 people listening at the same time, high speed servers such as ours are only capable of delivering what the users Internet connection point (ISP) allows to pass. This is what makes services such as DSL, 56K and wireless a more worthwhile ISP than standard phone company connections.
Anyway, am very glad you like what we have to offer so far. It will only get better and you'll hear some great stuff including me announcing and from time to time, a few of my own songs.
