August Camp Radio ceased broadcasting at midnight on September 1st 2013. We played out with half hour of some themed “goodbye” songs, ending with the classic Neil Sedaka and Our Last Song Together.
Our broadcast server has now been switched off and one of our two broadcast streams deactivated. The internet-radio.com stream is still up for a while longer yet, but is just playing a loop of test transmission music.
Our twitter, facebook and google+ pages will be removed over the next few weeks. The ACR website will also be removed, a static “remembrance” page will be in its place.
Our reason for closure was simply lack of interest. Although we had a regular daily listener count of around 10-15 (which is quite small, but not bad with the huge choice of internet stations out there) We didn’t get a lot of listener interaction. Also broadcast streaming costs were becoming to expensive and the only way to continue would have been to make August Camp Radio fund itself through advertising.
On that note, I would like to take this last opportunity to thank all our listeners who enjoyed our format or no DJ chat, no adverts and non-stop 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, 00’s and the best of today!
There will be no further updates to this website before removal.
Thanks again for choosing August Camp Radio….
