VLOHRadio in Hilvarenbeek in the Netherlands. They decided to give QGoLive a real test from a live event bidding farewell to their mayor with lots of speeches and live bands. Listen to how good the live music sounds! Live broadcast on 3/30/19.
QGoLive works just about anywhere. Case in point:
Each July defunct AM carrier-current radio station WLHA returns to the airwaves of Madison, WI over the facilities of its successor WSUM 91.7 FM for the Radio Resurrection Weekend. Old (and we mean old!) DJ’s recreate their shows from days gone by and take to the streets to force innocent people into taking part in contests.
Here’s former WLHA station manager Tom Baer aboard a moving Trolley Pub conducting a trivia contest while cruising through the streets of Madison. He’s using an iPhone X and an iRig HD2 microphone. Enjoy!
WLHA lives on today as a 24/7 stream complete with its own mobile apps and Alexa skill:
From Walt Palmer, Director of Broadcast Operations, Engineering, and Programming at WGMD:
The entire airstaff of WGMD has been ravaged by Influenza A.
I felt the first effects on Thursday afternoon. But if just so happened I had an appointment with my GP Friday and was able to start a regiment of meds by early evening.
Saturday morning I received a call from my mid-morning guy, Jake, who sounded like I felt. Jake is kinda bullheaded and didn’t feel the need to seek medical attention until Sunday mid-day.
Duke, my PM Drive star, has a surgical appointment today for a hernia repair.
QGo To The Rescue!
Mike is now voicing his show live from home in Easton, MD. At 10am Andrea, a part-time host, will do 3 hours from her home in Philly. Kevin will fill in for Duke with a personal appearance in studio.
I am very pleased with the ease, utility and robust features of QGo. It saved my broadcast day!!
Happy to be of assistance Walt. Here’s a quick clip of Andrea handling her show from home, phone calls and all:
Here’s a rather remarkable aircheck. WHPC from Nassau Community College doing a live sports talk show from the IBS Conference at the Hotel Pennsylvania in New York City. The hosts are in a hallway. They have no equipment other than that iPhone and a borrowed pair of headphones for listening to cue. Hear how QGoLive using the internal mic of the iPhone makes it sound like each host is on their own mic with the levels set perfectly.
Please enjoy this aircheck of the very talented Eleanor Ciampi, Eric Fischetti and Nick Ohrnberger plus occasional contributions from the hallway peanut gallery.
Susan Rocco, host of “Women to Watch” on WPHT, Philadelphia needed to interview a guest in Uganda. Rather than do half an hour on the phone, producer Frank Canale had the guest install QGoLive on her laptop. Here’s a sample. HQ guest interviews are easy with QGoLive!
PS: Fun fact about the Ugandan radio market. 23 FM stations had their licenses suspended last year for allegedly promoting witchcraft…
1010 WINS reporter Glenn Schuck had to vamp for half an hour on his iPad mini waiting for them to detonate the Tappan Zee Bridge. Glenn is using the iPad Mini’s internal microphone, which is not our favorite. Generally we get best results from a mic like the iRig HD 2 but Glenn likes rolling this way and as you will hear it does the job when the bridge comes down!
