Well, it's been awhile since the big merger and we've had some time to assess how things went. While we're ecstatic with the response we've received from both the AO and TSW community post-merger, we've found there are some things we need to tweak a bit to operate smoother.

As part of this shake up, we're streamlining our leadership group and going back to having one Director. In this case, the Director will once again be me...at least until I'm fired by the owner. :) Vallikat (Assistant Director/Applications Lead), Gemmikins (Promotions Lead) and Tastyvixen (Events Lead) will serve as Board Members. What does this mean to the listeners? You probably won't notice much of a change. If anything, we'll hopefully operate more efficiently as a smaller group and eliminate some of the lingering divide between AO and TSW since the merger.

We're going to be welcoming one DJ back to the fold soon, while we sadly say farewell to another. DJ Luckystarr will be returning to Tuesday's in Anarchy Online starting March 18th! Welcome back Lucky! As we welcome Lucky back, however, we say a very fond farewell to DJ Screaminlord who will be retiring from DJ'ing. We can't thank him enough for his contributions over the years. He's a fantastic DJ and an even better person. He will be missed, but we hope to see him around at upcoming shows!

Are you ready to wear green and party like crazy for St. Patrick's Day this year in The Secret World? DJ Dynamiks will be hosting a special party at the Horned God on March 17th starting at 5pm EST/9pm UTC. Be there!

Also, there have been rumblings of a "new" DJ on the horizon soon. Denizens of Arcadia (or any fans of roleplay) in TSW may want to keep an eye out for Ashval's in-character persona, DJ Trevalin, and his new show expected to launch in May at the Crusades!

Are you interested in joining GSP? We currently have two ways you could join in the fun! First off, we're very interested in hiring new DJ's for AO and TSW. Contact Vallikat or Kriegshammer for information or to request an application! Also, we're interested in possibly hiring someone to fill a Community Relations position for AO. If you love AO and GSP and would be interested in helping us reach out to the AO community through events, contests and social media then please get in touch with Ashval in-game or via the forums. We'd love to hear from you!

As always, thanks for listening! We really appreciate the support!

As some of you may have heard, our licensing provider for the past several years (LoudCity) recently announced that they were closing shop on February 28th. GridStream Productions has found a new licensing home with StreamLicensing. What does this mean to you? Probably not much other than you possibly needing to obtain a fresh tune-in link. Listeners who use our GridStream player shouldn't notice any changes. If, however, you use a bookmarked link in the player of your choice...you will likely need to do a fresh tune-in and save the new link. If you encounter any issues, please contact us on our forums and we'll be happy to assist.

As always, thanks for listening!

So on the Anarchy Online team DJ Kermie has made it through all the flaming hoops without too many serious burns to his body. Ashval made his 55 hours of liveness without sleeping or having big bird say "hello" so huge congratulations to him on that.

Coming up this month we have several events in both Anarchy Online and The Secret World. We have a Valentines party with the Advisors of Rubi Ka on Saturday the 15th (check the events calendar to find out what time it is in your timezone).

And of course all our regular shows and ninja shows so keep an eye on the twitter and facebook pages to see when they are happening.

That's right, DJ Ashval is bringing you his Top 50 Metal Bands of All time! That's a lot of music ...more than 51 hours worth of music to be clear. Ashval plans on starting things off at 5:00 pm EST on January 17 and keeping things rocking through the whole weekend!

You can join him in the Crusades in TSW's London to cheer him on. If you're out missioning don't forget to join Gridstream chat (/chat join gridstream) to send him words of encouragement. I'm sure he'd love to hear from you!

(and I might point out that Amazon is having a great sale on TSW for those of you who don't own it...just sayin').

So what's going on with Gridstream after this weekend? Well Ashval will be going into an immediate coma. However, I'm sure we have plenty of other things up our sleeves coming up in the weeks to come.

As always, stay tuned, and thanks for listening!!
