Syndication:

We are not big supporters of pre recorded programming, however a few people have come to us with very very high quality shows (pre-programmed) Weekly programs (podcasts). Communion After Dark every Monday at 9:00 pm and Out of My Head Radio Fridays at 8:00 PM.

Schedule Hardware and software:

Our  Station is a bit tech savvy.   We have built our own live remote broadcast system based on LiquidSoap with time sensitive logins and passwords.   We think it is better than Airtime.   This is the 3rd  version of our live broadcast system.    We still use  some of the older elements that make the main WFKU Station particularly special,  such as an extremely hacked apple computer.    The Requests system and the other channels are also built on Liquidsoap.   The Website is a customized WordPress CMS.     We also use Nicecast, Mixxx, Sam Broadcaster, Winamp, Foobar, LiquidSoap, Shoutcast, Icecast, Ical, Gcal, Beatunes, SC_trans, a variety of other applications, custom applescripts, custom unix shell scripts, and PhP Ducttape.  Our Dedicated Radio Server is in Denmark.    The Website is on 2 VPS’s in Virginia.   The Main Broadcast Computer is in NYC, The DJs are all over the world.

One More Thing:

WFKU strives to be interactive, community oriented, and personable. As such, we are always open to suggestions, comments, and concerns. You’re a part of our past, present, and future, so feel free to open up a line of communication.
