Planned Outage – 16:20BST 20th August 2016

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.

Playlist Updates 2016

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.

Recent Outage

It would appear that in the early hours (GMT) of Sunday 7 February 2016 our streaming server decided to stop streaming for no apparent reason. Because the broadcast server was still playing it did not raise the usual alarm for us and we were only made aware of the problem when doing some over night maintenance.

I would like to say that as of 9:15am GMT we are back online again and would like to take this opportunity to apologise to our listeners. We will be keeping a close eye on this problem as it is out of our control directly and with our streaming provider.

Thanks for listening to August Camp Radio.

Fault: 2/12/15 – ACR Server failure.


ACR Server Failure

2nd December 2015

It is with regret that we report our main broadcast server has failed as of 17:13 GMT

We are currently running on our default emergency broadcast whilst our engineer attends some much needed love to our broadcast server.

We apologise for the loss of normal service and will keep this post on our website updated with further updates as they become available.

Thanks again for listening to August Camp Radio.

It is with great regret I have to announce we are suffering from intermittent loses in transmission. This is being caused by a problem with our ISP again and is totally out of the control of August Camp Radio.

The fault has been occurring since 23:13 28/04/15 (UK TIME) and as of now at 02:35 29/04/15 the fault is happening more often.

We apologise to our listeners again for the loss of service and we hope our ISP gets their finger out and sorts this problem as quickly as possible.

Thanks again for choosing August Camp Radio.

NEWS: The End Of Late Night Music

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.

Throughout most of today we have been experiencing intermittent drops of transmission. This has been causing our stream to stop/start and fail intermittently. The fault is with our ISP and not the broadcast server this time!

August Camp Radio apologies to our listeners who are suffering these loses of service. We have performed a full reset of our routers and hope this has cured the problem, a fault has also been raised with the ISP.

Hopefully things will return back to normal soon! Just when we think we have fixed the broadcast server another fault comes along….. sigh!

Any further updates will appear on this post at in the news section of the ACR website.

Thanks for listening! (When you can!)

We apologise to all of our listeners at the moment, but it would appear the gremlins that caused an off-air notice yesterday have returned again today!

We have been off air since 11:42am (GMT) 22 April 2015. We are currently investigating why our master broadcaster server is crashing. Some updates were carried out yesterday but this doesn’t seem to have fixed the problem.

From 12:54pm 22 April 2015 we are now broadcasting our test transmission and will remain doing so until the broadcaster server has been returned to health.

We are sorry if you are a regular listener to our radio broadcast, but sadly computer’s will be computer’s!

We will be back….. hopefully!

Stay tuned to this post on our website for further updates and information.

UPDATE: 15:00(GMT) – We are back online using our broadcast server on reduced service (no song title information is currently being sent to Tune In listeners) We are keeping an eye on the system for the next 24 hours.

OFF AIR ALERT – 21 April 2015

Technical Problems at AC Radio

We regret to announce that it would seem we’ve been off air since approximately 2:53pm (GMT) today (21 April 2015).

Our engineer is currently performing some tasks on our broadcast server to find out why, in other words pressing the big red reset switch and putting his feet up with a cup of tea!

We are very sorry about the loss of our broadcast this afternoon and although he’s likely to be sat drinking tea are sure he will return our servers back to life as quickly as possible.

Thanks for choosing August Camp Radio and hopefully we will be back on air again soon.

Any further developments or updates will be posted on our website under this news article.

Thanks, The ACR Team.
