    Live Broadcasting:

    The Heart and Soul of Radio. This is what the we pride ourselves in doing most. We Broadcast live from locations all around the world. We do 20+ live shows a week.  We have built our own custom broadcasting system and player to facilitate doing it better.

    Space Catapult Auto-recording and Podcast Syndication:

    This is Radio 2.0. Our Radio to podcast syndication service is absolutely the best in the world. We syndicate podcast media significantly faster than the BBC’s System, Sets and Playlists are recorded automatically, the podcast is generated and syndicated through apple, google, RSS, Torrents, as a wordpress post, reposted through most social networks, and a few other places minutes after the DJ gets off the air. All done with absolutely no extra work for the Djs or staff.


    We run Choice Selections from DJ’s when we are not live. These selections have been very carefully curated for your maximum entertainment. Even when we are not live, WFKU still strives to serve you in the best way possible. Listen 24 hours a day at your convenience.

    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 Duck tape. 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.
