Like the Steve Miller Band sang
"Time keeps on slippin', slippin', slippin'
Into the future"
And we find ourselves in November. The time of year where extra beards seem to grow. We don't have any special events planned this month. But if you've got something you'd like to submit for an event it's not too late.
We may have a DJ returning this month.
Joanwilder is currently on an every second week basis for her shows due to the nasty IRL. I know she's planning a great set for her next show though.
I've been happy to see so many people jumping on our Discord server. It's added another way to interact with all you great people both when there is a show on and at other times as well.

The year seems to be flying by. Feels like it was January just the other day to me. But in this case I’m happy to see October roll around for Halloween.
There will no doubt be several Halloween themed shows during the month. Probably a few events on Gridstream.
Uncle Pumpkin Heads should be turning up on Rubi-Ka shortly. Jack will no doubt be loose in the Secret World.

In other news with the shutting down of the Funcom IRC server we have made a Gridstream Discord server. We’ve been using it behind the scenes but we have now opened up a public channel for anyone that wishes to join. Follow this link to join https://discord.gg/6F5gXsr
You can either get on through a browser of your choice or download the application on PC or smart device.

Yo ho yo ho a pirates post for me! That's right it's September and that can only mean Talk Like a Pirate's Day is coming up! This year GSP and ARK will be partying on Saturday 16th September in Reets Retreat on the Glass Dance Floor. Join DJ Gemmikins at 3pm Eastern/7pm UTC for liveness and piratey goodness and booty!

Along with September we are cruising away from Summer into Autumn and soon to Halloween! We expect you to enjoy the fall and come up with some funky parties and hope to be your hosts in the ghoulish get togethers.

Summer to Fall means a change, and GSP is no exception to that around here. Firstly GSP will no longer be using Streamlicensing starting 18th September and will now be a station in the SoniXCast Broadcasting Network. We told you last month that we were experiencing issues streaming and have seen no positive changes yet so we have switched providers and bring you good news with the fact we will be under a freer reign on what we can do as DJs. That means no real limitations on playing music and artists, no issue with announcing what artists we have up next and a faster turn around in requests for you all. All in all thanks Canada for being freer to us and "As Canadian as reasonable under the circumstances."

Secondly Gemmikins is swamped with RL at present and is sad to say that after DJing the Pirate Day Party she will be back to a hiatus and ninja show schedule, she hopes to be back on track soon but is unsure how the rest of the year will go and is sorry for the lack of shows the last few weeks.

As always thank you for listening and we hope the changes will bring more delights to your ears!


Hopefully all of you listeners are keeping cool in the Northern hemisphere and warm in the Southern parts. Most of us here at GSP have been enjoying our holidays and summer time, going on trips away and just generally enjoying the weather and time with family and friends. We're sorry for the sporadic shows lately but hopefully as we cruise through the remainder of this year we'll get more shows.

That being said we have news about our shows at present. You may notice missing shows or shows that are heavily restricted on what is being played and that requests we receive from you may not be something we can play, we're not doing this on purpose we have reasoning behind it. At present GSP runs with Streamlicensing as a provider, sadly they have lost their license with ASCAP at the moment due to breaching of license and on payment obligation. At the moment Streamlicensing is trying to reassure us and it's other customers on how they are working on amending this however what that means for us is a limited choice on what we cannot play on the air and in our playlists. Currently we are going through our music collection against a database and we are going to be limited for as long as this goes on or until we have a new streaming identity to use.

So what does that mean for you? Well it means you'll still get potential liveness but our staff may be limited on what we can potentially play and may not be able to fulfill requests at this time. We are hoping this will be a shorter resolution period but it's a little bleak at this time. So bear with us and hopefully things will be better later on this year.

Lastly we have events coming up for you guys! Talk like a Pirate Day will be happening in September with ARK hosting it. We will bring more details as we get that finalised and secondly we will likely have more Halloween events to come for you as we get into October, now is the time to start getting those requests in for us to host before we are used by others!

Thank you all for listening and stay tuned for more information!
