New And Improved Site!

Let me be the first to welcome you to the new and improved Gamers Radio website. I am sure the new Green design may catch you off guard at first, but give it time and I know it will grow on you. We have worked hard to bring you an interesting theme, while doing everything we can to speed up the load time of the site. I think you will agree the new theme runs much smoother.

Be sure and drop by our Forums as they are completely redesigned to match the new theme. Keep your eye out for our easter egg, hidden somewhere in the forums. For you Firefox users, you will notice the Forums Block on the left now scrolls just like it has always done with IE. Keep it here for more interesting additions including a new Interviews module and Flash Enabled Games. For those of you that complained about the site logging you out, that should now be fixed as well.

Of course, I could not have done this without the help of Raze. I owe him all the credit for the great artwork and new design. Without him, none of this would be here. Thanks Raze!

Illuminati – Machines – ROCKS!

Once in a while, we get unsolicited requests to play songs from Indie Artists. We are always on the look out for great music and have no problem listening to what you have to offer. Unfortunately, not all bands fit into our mix of music and not all bands are equal.

This was not the case when SG of Illuminati sent us a request to check out their song, Machines. All I can say is this song kicks ass and fits right into our line up. So, listen for them on the Gamers Radio Stream, drop by their website http://www.illuminatimusic.com and check them out. If the rest of their music is this good, you can expect to hear even more Illuminati on our station…….

Big Music Update on the Station

I added a bunch of new stuff to the radio station including 4 new songs from Slipknots new album Vol 3 (Subliminal Verses) and a few songs from Shinedown, including the acoustic version of Simple Man. Speaking of Simple Man; us early buyers of Shinedowns album Leave A Whisper didnt get it. Matter of fact, we didnt get 3 songs that have been added to the album. Oh well. If you are interested in the new song, Simple Man, check out this great story on Country Music Televisions website, of all places. Another new band I added to the playlist is Future Leaders Of The World. Signed by Puddle of Mudds Label, they look like an interesting band. Get more info on their official website, FutureLeadersoftheWorld.com. Keep it here for more goodness coming to the station soon.

Putting the Radio Back In Gamers Radio

Thats right folks! The Deathmatch of Internet Radio Returns!

After going radioless for the last 2 years, we have finally brought music back to Gamers Radio. The best part is we are now broadcasting in mp3PRO Stereo quality. If you havent heard mp3PRO, then you are going to be very suprised how clean it sounds.

Just to wet your whistle, here is a snapshot of what we are currently rotating on the station:

A Perfect Circle
Tool
Lollipop Lust Kill
Finger Eleven
Sevendust
Slipknot
Probot
Korn
Marilyn Manson
Mushroomhead
Rage Against The Machine
Rammstein
Foo Fighters
Crossbreed

If you like those bands, then you will love our new station!

New Name….

When I originally started out with the idea for this website, the name was going to be gamersradio.com. Both .com and .net were available, but I was too lazy to buy them. When I finally decided to do it, someone else had already registered both name. For two years I watched as the names set there doing absolutely nothing.


Then four months after the names expired, the domains were released back to the public. You better believe I snatched these puppies up as fast as I could.


The end result is Gamers Radio Network is reborn as it was always intended to be, Gamers Radio….. For the record, gamersradio.com, gamersradio.net, gamers-radio.com, gamers-radio.net, gamersradionetwork.com, gamersradionetwork.net and gamersradionetwork.org are all owned by me. One of these days, I will set up all of them to point here. For now, update your bookmarks to use www.gamersradio.com and drop by from time to time. Without you, this site would be worthless…..



In the immortal words of my friend Erthdawg, PEACE!

Knucklewhite

Little Kingz (They may be little people, but their music is Large!)

Lock-N-Load

Lotic

Lure

Manifest Destinty

Single Bullet Theory

The Final Step



I usually play two songs an hour from unsigned artists. Open your mind and check out the radio station. This is not the same old boring stuff you hear on other stations. Be the first on your block to say, “Hey, I know those Guys!”

Until next time, ROCK ON!

Through my eyes…

Ever wonder what it is like to be me? I doubt it, but hey, this is my site, so I am going to tell you about it anyway. I just watched Almost Famous on HBO. It is funny how a movie can spark something in you. Music does the same thing. Watching Almost Famous is a look into my world. I am a fan of Music. More than anything, Music is an important part of my life. I spent 6 years working my way from mascot to weekend peon at a great Rock Radio station. I held down a fulltime job, went to school fulltime, worked 2 – 3 weekend shifts at the radio station and once in a while, I got to see my wife. I sacrificed a lot for my love of Music. I finally gave up on being a DJ because something in my life had to give. I took the easy way out. I stopped being a fan. This site is my way of bringing back the thing I miss the most, the music and being around other people who know what it means to be a fan.



That’s right, I do this because I am a fan. Always was, always will be. So, I present my corner of the world to you, my world, where the Music rules and having fun is part of the game. Won’t you join me? Us?



As they say in the movie, Almost Famous, “It will set you free.”



Yea man, yea…..
