JANUARY 2014 UPDATE Radio Abaco seems to have died I’m afraid, probably in 2012. I’ve had a number of ‘hits’ for it recently, so I thought I’d better check up. Pity.

The mechanics are working on it 24/7 (should they be using electronic engineers, maybe?). In fact [later] I’m beginning to wonder if it is active as a widget at all. All attempts to connect come to nothing. I’m going to leave this little project for a couple of weeks… sorry, all
STOP PRESS: I’ve checked out the Radio Abaco Facebook page. [Last post Aug 4th 2011, previous one March 2011] Some activity in 2012. Not available for streaming. Anyone know what’s going on – I get a number of hits for this, so other people clearly want news. The Facebook link is RADIO ABACO
But soft, what light through yonder window breaks? It is the east, and rollingharbour is the sun… (R&J A2 S2) To avoid disappoinment, the post below has been transported from the ‘Apps and Media’ Page, and with any luck you’ll get a working link to the App for downloading to your phone to arrive eventually at a Bahamas radio station you feel comfortable with…

This little app is quite fun, and useful within its limitations. It is the gateway to:
1. Four bahamian radio stations: various combinations of local music – invariably cheering – and more general rocky / poppy stuff. Rolling Stones (Sympathy with the Devil) followed by the Monkees (Last Train to Clarksville) this morning when I checked- now THAT’s a concert I’d have loved to be at, with the Stones as warm up to the Main Act… oh, time to wake up
2. Weather: daily details with maps and 5-day forecasts for each island, from the Bahamas Meteorological Department.
3. News: click-through to 8 bahamian journals, including the Abaconian (though that link wasn’t working today).
4. Search: direct links to bahamas-based searches on the usual suspects – Youtube, Google, Wiki, Twitter, Facebook etc. You never know quite what you will come up with.
