I can still remember two Scunthorpe DJ’s attempt at a pirate radio station. It was called WLNG & Broadcast on 104.9 FM on Tuesday and Thursday nights in the late 1980s.

There’s very little information about WLNG on Google just a couple of mentions in articles.

Stability? Radiodj Has That In Spades

I’ve been into Internet radio for a long time now. In all those years I’ve learnt a lot of things about streaming on the Internet.

It’s been a fun thing to learn about. Other times it’s been hard work because software wasn’t doing the job it was designed for.

Pirate V’s Legal

Certain people in the Internet radio community reckoned we ran a pirate radio station & some people also reckon that I have done work for pirate stations in the past.

Nope completely wrong on all counts!

The stations I’ve worked for in the past were all legit and above board. I once got asked to work for a pirate station in Scunthorpe (WLNG) in the late 1980s but also declined that offer.

When it comes to streaming a station I’ve only ever streamed music for me to listen to via a private internal shoutcast server (Which we no longer need because we’ve bought a Chromecast)

What really gets my back up on this subject is the fact that there are so many stations listed on various radio guide websites who have never owned a licence to stream.

Some of those stations have been going over 14 years. I won’t name names but you just know a pirate station on the Internet when you come across one.

No one it seems pulls them up about not having a licence for their music.

I am still streaming my music via a private server Chromecast and I intend to carry on doing so.

Now piss off and find someone else to harass!
