Potential downtime on Wednesday
May. 30, 2017
The company that hosts the North American server and website will be undergoing some updates on Wednesday, May 31st between 7pm and 7am Central Time. This most likely means Organlive, Postively Baroque and The Organ Experience will all be offline for an undetermined amount of time. We will update as we have more information.
Upcoming Live Broadcast
May. 29, 2017
On June 17, 2017, we'll be broadcasting the dedication recital of the newly installed Reuter Organ in the Cathedral of Our Lady of The Immaculate Conception in Springfield, Illinois. Dr. Frederick Hohman will be performing this recital. The concert starts at 7:00pm Central time (1:00 am London, 2:00 am Europe). Our broadcast will start a little before with a few words from the performer and the organ builders.
If you can't tune in to the live broadcast, we're planning a rebroadcast at 9:00am Central Time on Monday, June 19. Further details will be available here and on our Facebook page.
A little downtime
Mar. 16, 2017
As part of our system upgrades, we're expecting a bit of downtime this evening around 11:00pm Central Time (04:00 GMT). We hope that Organlive listeners will only notice a slight pause in service. Positively Baroque and Organ Experience, however will both be down for a few minutes. We're preparing everything we can to make sure this outage is as brief as possible.
Ideally this is the last time we have to interrupt the service as part of this transition, and most listeners should not notice anything different. However, if you are experiencing any problems with our streams or have problems tuning in that you didn't have before, please let us know so that we may do our best to keep the music playing.
Thanks for your patience, and thanks for listening!
A few technical changes
Mar. 9, 2017
We're testing out a few changes to our server software today in order to better serve our listeners. Some of these are designed to support our new Roku app which will be coming out very soon. If your player is telling you today that you're listening to Christmas Organlive, that's just a mistake. We're still plain old Organlive, although with a heavy dose of Samuel Barber today on his birthday. We'll have another brief outage tonight around midnight central time as some tweaks are made to the setup.
If you're experiencing any issues tuning in or with our broadcast quality, we'd like to know about it. Please contact us and let us know about any problems you may be experiencing.
Thanks for listening!
