radiohhh.com has no genre or demographic restrictions on what is played. It’s this simple: if we like it, we play it. You may hear a Rachmaninoff classic followed by The Rolling Stones, then some jazz from Ella Fitzgerald followed by a Kanye West rap.
If you’re in a laid back mood go for the smooth, blue end of the wavy line. In the white, middle part we play everything, like the original radiohhh.com. And if you’re in an upbeat, party mood, slide all the way into the red.
The music on radiohhh.com RED, WHITE and BLUE
On radiohhh.com you’ll hear music going back to the early 1900‘s, when recording was a young industry. Then, the next song you hear may have been released just last week.
The sonic differences are there to be heard as part of the experience. Studio and production techniques stamp the sound of an era as much as anything else. Some songs have been transferred directly from vinyl. Indeed, some began life as an old, dusty Edison cylinder or 78rpm disk. Other music, from the early days of CD, may sound thinner than you’re now used to.
In most cases tracks are unaltered, but where surface noise has been lessened or some frequency depth added, it’s been with moderation and sensitivity.
Listening to radiohhh.com RED, WHITE and BLUE
On your computer all three radiohhh.com channels stream on any HTML5 browser. If you use the radiohhh.com player the audiophile setting is 256 kbps mp3. Everyday is 128 kbps mp3. And canny is 32 kbps AAC+.
If you use the iTunes player the stream is 64 kbps AAC+. Winamp, VLC and RealAudio players are 128 kbps mp3.
Generally, the higher the bit rate the better the quality, but the more bandwidth you use. (AAC+ is a superior codec that offers at least twice the quality of mp3, so it needs lesser bandwidth to deliver a great sound.)
The radiohhh.com top-of-the-hour ID
You’ll hear the radiohhh.com ID somewhere near the top of each hour on radiohhh.com WHITE. This is an ‘audio logo’ derived from the morse code signal for ‘ohhh’ (three dashes followed by three sets of four dots).
Because there can often be a lag of up to 45 seconds from our streaming point to where you’re listening, we suggest you use the ID as an approximate guide only.
