Well…. it’s been 8 months that this website has been down, I’ve just managed to get it back up today.
August Camp Radio ceased broadcasting on the 2nd May 2018. After a lot of deliberation it was decided that the station was not financially worth continuing. The listener count had dropped to an all time low and I couldn’t afford to let the station run with an average daily listener count of 3.
I’m sorry to all those that enjoyed our choice and style of music. I do hope one day to maybe bring it back to life, hence I will keep this website running in honour of the station.
Thank you to those that supported us and we may see you again…one day…don’t know when….don’t know where!
Well, we couldn’t stay away! Today (June 30th) we are back broadcasting live again. If you’ve been listening over the past week you would have noticed we were on a constant loop of the same songs from the emergency dead air playlist.
I can confirm today that we are now back broadcasting from our NEW radio server. It’s all fresh and sparkly and still undergoing fine tuning and configuration. Plus we have the mammoth task of uploading our HUGE playlist. So please bear with us over the coming weeks as moves and changes are made. This may cause drop-outs and gaps in songs, so we do apologize in advance for this.
Our playlist is only 25% uploaded so we have a long way to go yet. Some new content and all the hits you know and love. We will still be playing mostly 80’s but chuck in some 60’s, 70’s and 90’s just to mix things up a little.
Thanks for supporting us and listening over the years and we trust this will continue for the foreseeable future.
August Camp Radio.
23rd June 2017.
It is with regret that I have to sadly announce that August Camp Radio has now ceased broadcasting. Our master server which has provided us with continuous broadcasting for over 6 years has finally given and suffered fatal hard drive failure.
Over the past few months our listener figures had also dropped and with that in mind it has been decided to close all together instead of working on a new updated server.
There is a very SLIM chance we may return as a cloud based radio station. Please check back for news on this possible development.
Lastly I would like to thank our listeners over the years, old and new, we hope you enjoyed our variety of music.
Thank you again.
August Camp Radio.
Thank for listening to August Camp Radio!
Unfortunately we need to carry out some maintenance and upgrades at our server room and to the actual broadcast server we use for ACR. From 16:20 British Summer Time (15:20GMT) we switched to our temporary emergency broadcast stream.
As soon as things are complete we will switch back. Switching sometimes causes listeners to be dropped, we do apologise and all you need to do is select us again or restart your app on your deviice.
Thanks again for choosing August Camp Radio.
As part of August Camp Radio’s challenge to keep the music within out huge playlist fresh, we have today done something a little different. We have today added 50 90’s tracks to our regular daily playlist….. The 90’s were great weren’t they?
We already have a selection of 90’s in our playlist along with the 60’s and 70’s and mostly 80’s but as the 90’s get further away from us we have decided that they can now be considered as classic years!
More 90’s and 80’s will be added over the course of the next week so keep listening and let us know what you think.
Thanks again for listening to August Camp Radio.
With immediate effect (otherwise known as from today, 27 April 2015 onwards) we are removing the Late Night Music slot from August Camp Radio.
The slot, which runs from 11pm (UK Time) through until 5am featured a few slower/love songs from the 1960’s through to the 2000’s but after some careful consideration we have decided to no longer continue with this programme.
The main reason for the removal is the fact August Camp Radio broadcasts around the world, and although it might be 1am in the middle of the night in the UK it’s mid morning in Australia for example. So to not put off our listeners from around the world it seems best to not have time based programmes and just continue 24 hours a day playing great music from mainly the 1980’s with a side of 60s/70s & 90’s thrown in for good measure.
We will be topping up our playlist with a few more new (to August Camp Radio) tunes to help fulfil your music needs.
We hope most people agree with us on this decision and that you continue to enjoy and listen to August Camp Radio.
As a (kinda) way of saying sorry for all the disruption to our broadcasts over the past 48 hours we have gone and added another 32 new tracks, all music from the 80’s to our vast playlist!
Over the next 24 hours, our system will filter these tracks into our playlist for your enjoyment!
Some of the songs I can’t believe we have never had played before, some are a little extra that might make you think, I’ve not heard this in ages!
Enjoy, and thanks once again for choosing August Camp Radio.
Welcome to 2015 on August Camp Radio!
We are making some changes to our huge playlist, and starting in January we have already added a touch of 60s and 70s with some classic tunes from The Beatles, 10cc and more. We have loads more to add and some to remove. Do you have a favourite song from the 60s/70s/80s/90s that we don’t currently play? Get in touch with us via Twitter or Facebook and we will do our very best to dig out your song and add it to our playlist in 2015!
Thanks again for choosing August Camp Radio and we hope you have a music packed new year!!
CHRISTMAS 2014 on AUGUST CAMP RADIO!
Yes! It’s that time of year again! (Comes round quick doesn’t it?) Christmas is here and that means August Camp Radio, like a lot of radio stations, begins playing some Christmas tunes within it’s playlist.
Starting from 8:30pm on 10 December right through until 26 December 2014 we will be adding the odd Christmas record to our jam packed playlist of hits!
We hope you enjoy our little bit of festive spirit and wish all our listeners old and new a very Merry Christmas!
Recent High Listener Count
August Camp Radio seems to be growing in popularity recently as over the past few days during peak times some listeners have been unable to listen via Internet-Radio or Tune In etc.
We apologise for this problem, but we only have a max of 20 listeners on our main broadcast stream which is shared between listeners on Tune In, Internet-Radio and a host of other online radio hosts.
We would like to remind our listeners that if you are unable to listen via our normal routes, we do have a slightly less reliable (as it’s free to use) stream on caster.fm
Please goto http://augustcampradio.caster.fm and listen on there, you can also use that link on your mobile device, but we would like to remind listeners that it is unstable and sometimes offline.
We are looking into ways of increasing our listener count on our main stream, but costs would become to much and as we are non-profit, and non-funded it really isn’t possible.
On that note, if you would like to support August Camp Radio financially so we can increase our listener count on our main broadcast stream, please get in touch using the contact us form on the website or post a message via any of the social media platforms, Twitter / Facebook or Google+
Thanks for listening and thanks even more if you are considering supporting us.
