  • Bob Jonkman : That's online listeners, there are more listening to FM. But how many? Only Nielsen knows...
  • Requiem : If I tried last week to open that link from here on "listener chat" it would not open.
  • Requiem : looks like 7 listeners.....

  • Bob : Looking forward to it!
  • Two White Feather : hello hows it going today. its our 2nd podcast and talking about the red road path on how it started and glad to see you guys here today
  • Requiem : Check out LEE GREGORY and his exploration of the 81 82 83 84 Era!! 10 cc to start......
  • Requiem : Thanks for the insights and the listen Natasha!
  • Requiem : lol too funny. Gateway drug! But yes.....filling stadiums with swaying arena "parishioners" who got their Jesus Fix from Christian Rockers now versus Ministers at Pulpits.
  • Natasha : Interesting theory that Christian Rock ultimately led the flock astray. Like a gateway drug!
  • Requiem : Certain Ecuminical sub sects of Christianity saw the value- addedness of Christian Rock right away.....others took longer to see the usefulness. Ironically, Christian Rock eventually removed and reduced parishioners from the Church and into the Rock arenas and Stadiums!
  • Natasha : I think while the churches may have initially preached against rock, they have always been more savvy than they portray and they knew that if ya can’t beat em,…
  • Requiem : Right. Hillsong! Populist Christianity through contemporary music!
  • Natasha : Early iteration of Hillsong Church
  • Requiem : I think it can be called a sub-genre. And in fact, the southern Fundie churches tried to supress Christian Rock itself...Christian Rock had to fight both sides of the spectrum while in its cradle. Though later yes you are correct, it was used to bring more into the fold from that demographic you mention. Thanks for the comment and listen Natasha!
  • Natasha : Fascinating topic. Is “Christian Rock” really a thing? Or is it a ploy by the southern fundie churches to try to appeal to the demographic they saw they were losing? Marketing at its holiest.
  • Requiem : The sub-genre of Christian Rock.....
  • Requiem : EASTER show on Requiem for Rock!
  • Karlo Berkovich : https://youtu.be/ARtfbypaAoE
  • guest_4855 : classic
  • joe ketchup : bro scratchin his mic fr
  • joe ketchup : yuup
  • pb n jam : bandwidth bandwidth bandwidth
  • Requiem : Marquis de Sade....act of cruelty.......and Agent Orange surf Punk on 81 82 83 84!
  • Requiem : 10 years earlier
  • Requiem : Me I'm just a Lawnmower....genesis. Great tune. But not of the 81 82 83 84 Era..
  • Bob Jonkman : https://radiowaterloo.ca/81-82-83-84-s03e19/
  • Bob Jonkman : Here's tonight's 81 82 83 84 music list:
  • Requiem : Lunchtime at 11pm.........with 81 82 83 84
  • Requiem : 81 82 83 84 is so right........Down with AI radio!!!
  • Requiem : lol.........skinna mar in a doo!! Thanks for the listen!! Goodnight Mrs. Calabash!!
  • Bob Jonkman : OK, I'm off to listen to "Inka Dinka Doo"...
  • Requiem : Happy Spring to all!
  • Requiem : Everyone out there.......Join the CKMS Family!!! C'mon get Happy!!
  • Requiem : we gotta reach out to the Colleges and Univ. for the tech people. Great experience!
  • Bob Jonkman : "Programmers" meaning people who write computer code. But we also need "Programmers" meaning people who produce and host radio shows!
  • Bob Jonkman : Of course, if we had a bigger TechCom team with some additional programmers it would get done faster. If *anyone* is interested let us know! You can join Radio Waterloo as a member, and join the Technical Committee and do all kinds of cool things!
  • Father To Son : Flo and Eddie also performed with Frank Zappa............Happy Spring ya'll
  • Requiem : You guys make it all happen.....appreciate the work you do.....labor of Love!
  • Bob Jonkman : OK, I'll work on it. But first I have some podcasts to index and edit...
  • Requiem : I think that would be a priority project Bob. Encouraging to Programmers.
  • Requiem : lol......I must have sensed it F2S! since the show is pre-recorded!
  • Bob Jonkman : The Turtles were an underrated band
  • Bob Jonkman : Another project (so many projects!) is to have that number appear on the "Listen Live" page...
  • Father To Son : I knew you would come through for me
  • Requiem : Hey F2S....you picked it! Happy Together Turtles.....great song!
  • Requiem : I don't wanna inflate. I want real listeners. Bu thanks so much for the link!
  • Bob Jonkman : If you were to start up another browser for "Listen Now" you'll see the number bump up. A nice way to inflate the numbers!
  • Requiem : Hey I'm happy with 8 or so real live people!
  • Bob Jonkman : A couple of those "listeners" are radio analytic services, at least one is monitoring what we're playing, another is the Radio Garden server that pops in for a minute and then pops out again, every hour or so.
  • Bob Jonkman : One of these days I want to write a script to parse through the logs and get the number of listeners throughout the day (and the past month)
  • Requiem : So safe to assume there are 11 listeners right now listening on livestream?
  • Bob Jonkman : "Current" is how many are listening right now. "Peak" is the highest number since "Stream started". I'm not sure what keeps restarting the stream, so that date-time and "Peak" value keeps changing.
  • Requiem : 11 listeners
  • Requiem : Not sure how to interpret it. Today says 11 current. But that was 4 am?
  • Bob Jonkman : You know about checking the number of online listeners at https://studio.radiowaterloo.ca:8443/ , right?
  • Requiem : Awesome! We all want more exposure.
  • Bob Jonkman : Don Janzen has been working on getting our stream registered with Radio Garden, iHeart Radio, and maybe a few others. It's a team effort!
  • Requiem : He was a singer though even though not much of one....actor.....lots of cartoon voice-overs.
  • Requiem : the listenlive is running perfectly these days. Shout out to the CKMS Tech people!!
  • Bob Jonkman : I remember seeing a few Jimmy Durante shows on TV. Probably a come-back show, maybe in the 1970s.
  • Requiem : lol could be! Spoken word was big back then.
  • Bob Jonkman : Jimmy Durante, inventor of rap?
  • Bob Jonkman : The man couldn't carry a tune. Didn't talk right either. But still, appealing, and recognizable half-a-century (or more) later.
  • Requiem : yeah Jimmy D. ..The old Schnozzola. Bluebird of Happiness.
  • Bob Jonkman : Sorry, I missed the intro to this. Jimmy Durante?
  • Requiem : wow. Wilf was big here in his day. But very cool to know he was big in Germany. He was the first yodeler..inspiring Little Richard.....who inspired the Beatles wwops.
  • Bob Jonkman : And his own music was bigger in Germany than in Canada. Go figure.
  • Bob Jonkman : My FiL produced a lot of old-tyme country CDs. Many of them were released by the BACM , the British Association of Country Music. For some reason, the British were more into Canadian country music than Canadians were.
  • Requiem : Wilf produced by your Father-in Law! very cool
  • Requiem : Old tyme Country AND Can-Con...perfect for CRTC!
  • Bob Jonkman : Hm. No Wilf Carter in our library. I think I have a Wilf Carter CD around here someplace, produce by my father-in-law. I'll have to dig it out and upload it. More CanCon, and it may even qualify as Old-Tyme Country (a category that the CRTC likes)
  • Requiem : Thanks so much for the listen guys.
  • Requiem : Could be F2S...Could be 🙂
  • Bob Jonkman : Hi F2S!
  • Father To Son : Hi guys, great show.............are you gonna play Happy Together by the Turtles?
  • Requiem : We need a Translator here. No, that was how it went back in 71.
  • Bob Jonkman : Another one. Blocked, deleted. Refresh to increase your happiness.
  • Bob Jonkman : Performed by the Partridge Family? My recollection (what, 50 years ago?) is that it was lighter, bouncier...
  • Requiem : Yeah the intro theme to Partridge family
  • Bob Jonkman : Partridge Family?
  • Bob Jonkman : I have some catching up to do!
  • Requiem : Its the 11th annual International day of Happiness!
  • Requiem : Looks like Russian!
  • Bob Jonkman : Not just here on R4R, but it made it to my #Fediverse feed as well.
  • Bob Jonkman : You know, today is the first I've heard of International Day of Happiness
  • Bob Jonkman : Deleted, and IPs are blocked. Now to do some analysis and block entire address ranges. Not sure what happened, but the spammers have discovered us and think we're easy marks...
  • Requiem : yeah lots of weird spam sigh
  • Bob Jonkman : OK, refresh this page to eliminate the spam and increase your happiness!
  • Requiem : International Day of Happiness.......on Requiem for Rock!

  • Bob Jonkman : guest_4810: Is a separate "floating" player something people want? We'll work on it!
  • guest_4810 : Some radio station websites have a "play" button and it keeps playing at the top of every page as I navigate thru website. For example: radio1.cz
  • Bob Jonkman : Good night, Mr. Smart!
  • Requiem : well thanks for all you do. Goodnight Bob.
  • Requiem : That would be optimal. You guys do a great job with a lot of hurdles and roadblocks and gremlins!! Its very complex.
  • Bob Jonkman : Agreed, there. There are several website widgets that might accomplish that, but all of them are Javascript dependent, and a bit onerous to install and maintain. Definitely something to consider when we've moved the website in-house!
  • Requiem : Well at least when someone clicks the green Listen Live button on the homepage then the show should immediately start up.....with out having to open another tab when the listenlive page opens up.
  • Bob Jonkman : No, that's considered very bad Web site design. Anything that's not static visual info should only be activated with an explicit request (video, graphic animation, audio streams)
  • Requiem : Really whatever is playing on CKMS should immediately start playing when someone comes to the Homepage.
  • Bob Jonkman : Ah, right. (curses, asynchronous message order!)
  • Bob Jonkman : The link to the online stream https://radiowaterloo.ca/stream redirects from the website to the actual server. So when you see the direct server URL you can connect to that. But sometimes that URL changes, but the website URL https://radiowaterloo.ca/stream will stay the same. We did this just in December when the streaming service provider shut down, and we moved to our own server.
  • Requiem : unless someone has the live stream link written down they can't get in to a show
  • Requiem : but can't be accessed unless from the homepage....
  • Requiem : exactly. The livestream would still work...
  • Bob Jonkman : Fortunately, the online streams weren't affected, they run on a different server. But connecting to the streams is generally done through a link on the website, so that made the online stream unavailable to people trying to connect during the downtime.
  • Requiem : Well its vital that the Board decide to make sure there are no site crashes and do what ever it takes to stop those going forward. Because though we love our airwave listeners, online listeners are crucial too!
  • Bob Jonkman : The plan (aka "Bob's plan", not necessarily the approved CKMS plan) is to bring the webserver in-house. We should have the bandwidth in the studio to run our own webserver, which then opens the possibilities of running many other services that we can't on a shared webhost. But there's a dependency to freeing up one of the existing servers. Probably the current LibreTime server, which should be replaced during the upgrade to LibreTime and its move to the transmitter site.
  • Requiem : Always much appreciated! Kudos to the CKMS TECH TEAM!
  • Bob Jonkman : Got your e-mail. I'll document the problem and the remediation there.
  • Requiem : Hope we can correct such outages in the future.....
  • Bob Jonkman : Yes, there was an alert sent out about the site being down around 10:10pm, but I didn't see it until I got back to my computer, just as you were signing off. There were dozens of pending web server tasks, and when I killed them all the website came back up.
  • Requiem : discuss via email
  • Requiem : it was just for the one hour of my show
  • Requiem : yes about that
  • Bob Jonkman : About the website outage? I think we've outgrown our webhost package, more and more frequently we're running into quota limits
  • Requiem : sent.....
  • Requiem : I'm just sending a note to tech.COM.
  • Bob Jonkman : Yup! Sadly, I got here just as you were signing off.
  • Requiem : Still there Bob?
  • Bob Jonkman : Sorry, missed the whole thing. Will have to catch up on the #Replay, Friday at 6pm

You can also see track info on our secondary stream at https://radiowaterloo.ca/stream2
  • guest_7641 : Where do we see song and artists names
  • Bob Jonkman : G'Night, Mr. Smart!
  • Requiem : Hope we can increase our on air power soon....we gotta look into it. goodnight.
  • Bob Jonkman : It's amazing how fast the hour passes. I had plans to work on stuff while listening to R4R, but we spend all our time chatting!
  • Requiem : gotta go.....thanks again for the listen Bob!
  • Requiem : yes.....he always captures that too precious era...on 81 82 83 84. Hopefully the youth can now hear the musical essence of that time...
  • Bob Jonkman : Here's the set list for tonight: https://radiowaterloo.ca/81-82-83-84-s03e12/
  • Requiem : yeah......I liked "socialism is the best!"
  • Bob Jonkman : 81 82 83 84 is playing strange music tonight
  • Requiem : We should at least ask. If its less than 12 grand a year with a further broadcast range.........then its worth asking.
  • Bob Jonkman : And the Boehmer landlord probably wants rent for a tower patch on the roof, and probably commensurate with typical rates for tower colocation.
  • Bob Jonkman : There's another, smaller (but higher) tower on the apartment between the old CFTO building and Central Fresh Mart. Again, they're required to share, but now we'd have to deal not only with the tower owner, but also the building management.
  • Requiem : yeah.....but the Boehmer landlord would have to give permission.
  • Bob Jonkman : I don't think it's the cost of relocating to Boehmer, but the hoops of Industry Canada paperwork, some CRTC paperwork. There is the cost of hiring a broadcast engineer to do the required surveys, but that's a one-time expense
  • Requiem : someone said the Tower was on the apartment building next to the old CKCO.....
  • Bob Jonkman : We checked about 3-4 years ago. I think that was the price for co-locating on the downtown Kitchener CFTO tower. But that tower (and CFTO) is gone...
  • Requiem : yeah that cost of relocating to Boehmer would be prohibitive...
  • Bob Jonkman : I'd like to see about moving our tower (we own the tower) to the roof of the old Boehmer Box building. But that requires engineering surveys and consultations, would take years, and I'm not sure how long before the building is razed so a developer can build more condos...
  • Requiem : So we know for sure they want that sort of money to share?
  • Bob Jonkman : Co-locators are required by Industry Canada to share (IC prefers that, to reduce antenna clutter) but everybody wants a buck.
  • Requiem : So the potential co-locators to share with want that kind of money to share?
  • Bob Jonkman : The combination of a new transmitter and a new audio board would be great. We could transmit the regular audio as we do now, but enable the digital upper-band, so we could transmit track metadate (title, performer, album, show name, and even cover art or show logo!)
  • Requiem : Well no one is going to let us piggyback
  • Bob Jonkman : (and maybe more than 100,000 Watts)
  • Bob Jonkman : TV transmitters are up to 100,000 Watts. So good for some 300 km broadcast radius
  • Requiem : Well forget that!
  • Bob Jonkman : There's the possibility of co-locating on another tower. Typically that shares the transmitter infrastructure, so we'd provide the stream and the co-locator provides the transmitter amplifier, mast, and antenna. But co-locating costs twice as much as the tower site we're renting now.
  • Requiem : They had TV transmitters that reached us here from Buffalo!
  • Requiem : Shout out to BUFFALO!!!
  • Requiem : then a new Transmitter cost.....
  • Requiem : the Tower rent is extortionate
  • Requiem : I agree in sentiment.....but reality bites sigh
  • Bob Jonkman : Definitely keep the on-air broadcast. It's one of the few things that differentiates CKMS from hundreds of other online streaming services.
  • Requiem : Guess we have to make a decision. Stay old timey with on-air broadcast. Or just do it online.
  • Bob Jonkman : The toy catalog for radio nerds: https://www.nautel.com/products/fm-transmitters/vx-series/
  • Bob Jonkman : Could try to get the transmitter overhauled, maybe a couple of thousand dollars. But then we'd have an old, overhauled transmitter. I think we're better off saving our shekels and putting it towards a new transmitter. A good one can be had for about $6,500 from a Canadian company in Nova Scotia.
  • Requiem : 102.7 FM won't even stay on my car radio pre-sets!
  • Bob Jonkman : And if you're driving into Cambridge you can tell that Shantz Hill blocks the signal. Preston is in a broadcast shadow; the signal is much better towards Galt.
  • Requiem : No way to fix this and get our full potential?
  • Requiem : I see.......
  • Bob Jonkman : So if we're getting a clean signal only up to 10km radius then I figure we're only transmitting about 100 Watts. But for some reason it reaches much farther in the direction of Guelph. Part of that has to do with the orientation of the antenna element in relation to the mast. The mast acts as a reflector, increasing range a bit in the other direction.
  • Requiem : if it can't do at least Waterloo Region........not worthwhile for the expense.
  • Requiem : Seems kinda pointless for such a short range. But I know nothing of such technical considerations.
  • Bob Jonkman : Rule of thumb for FM range in km: the square root of the power in Watts. So if we're at 250 Watts that should provide a clean signal for a radius of 16 km or so. But I'm only about 13 km north of the tower, and reception on the car radio is staticky like it's at the far edge of the broadcast radius.
  • Requiem : Well we gotta fix that.....or just go online. Though that would be a shame....
  • Requiem : On a good day..maybe on the car radio in Cambridge....
  • Bob Jonkman : I suspect it's the transmitter. We're again using the old one, from before CKRZ donated their (old) transmitter to us. We're licensed for 250 Watts of power, but I suspect we're only getting about 100 Watts out of the transmitter.
  • Requiem : yeah the Range is kinda pathetic for what we have to pay to rent the Tower!
  • Bob Jonkman : About as far as you do, but north. Just out of range of good CKMS-FM reception. It's OK on the car radio, but I can't pick it up in the house.
  • Bob Jonkman : Requiem : Posted: 2024/01/10 @ 22:22:30 do you live far from CKMS?
  • Requiem : metaphor of decline.....
  • Requiem : yes........all of that was there......oppulence and decay.....
  • Bob Jonkman : I suppose that's the point of the tale being told on R4R.
  • Requiem : well......the Century Theater was an essence of both......from glamor to decadence...
  • Bob Jonkman : "That era" being the 1970s, or the 1920s?

  • Bob Jonkman : I'll remind him.

  • Bob Jonkman : Maybe drop in next Wednesday for the Board meeting and get one from Nat.

  • Bob Jonkman : You should have a card, and I can get you the code for the door at the loading dock.
  • Requiem : Thunderbirds....with Lady Penelope!!
  • Requiem : Frankly its hard to get into the studio at night. Codes and cards.
  • Bob Jonkman : The Eyewitness News theme wouldn't be out-of-place in a Thunderbirds episode

  1. I do not know what is wrong with your CKMS 102.7 FM logo because since four weeks I can not open your radio station to listen to your programs on-line.When I click on LISTEN LIVE it does not open.

  2. Crazy Prodigy mixes at the end of Souljah Sessions, wish I was recording. Locked in for Street hop next!

  3. Nice, I’m liking DNB a lot recently. I’m still new to the genre, nice to hear some alternative music in the region.

  4. Hey Jesse Stewart, your Uncle Roland & Aunt Yvonne are listening from Campbell River, your home town on Vancouver Island!

  5. into the void is the most intense, far reaching radio show you’ll ever hear. chris sherren is a musical genious. keep listening. there is so much here.

  6. Yoooo!!! Thank you for playing all the classic 2008ighties / BRKF$T CLUB songs. You just took me back too a really fun time in my life lol
