NTR Info

North Texas Radio should be easy to explain. The concept is not a complicated one: Play good music.

It’s a simple concept, yet, through decades as a frustrated listener, I’ve never run across a radio station that simply plays good music, all kinds. Most stations typically conform to formats, schedules and/or have small playlists that repeat endlessly. These are marketing tools used to reel in a lazy audience.

Good music, made for and by intelligent, creative and possibly disturbed people just doesn’t correlate with the specifications of some corporation’s marketing team. Forget their whole approach.

With millions of people making music for thousands of years, non-repetitive, unsafe, non-categorized, top notch music should be the norm.

The North Texas Radio Library contains music that was recorded before there was electricity up until the latest releases. At present the library contains over 100,000 recordings. The playlist is drawn from the best of that library.

I’ve removed the embedded videos on some of the pages. Having the videos embedded meant that they had to make a round trip (usually to YouTube) before the pages would load. The site was slowed down considerably. 

I’ll still be adding videos (as seen by the 2 videos preceding this post) just not embedding them into the main pages.

NTR Info – Front Page Video is gone!

I’m doing some speed tests and will be trying different grids. Seeing how much difference things make. I expect Naughty Dallas will be back too.

Happy New Year!

Just a little note wishing everybody the best over the upcoming year!

NTR Info – New Server

The site has been moved to a new server. Might be a couple of hiccups over the next couple of days. Overall, it should be working fairly quickly, if not we’ll have to find out why.
