Here we are in March and at least where I live that means Spring is right around the corner.  So what's going on with Gridstream this Spring?

Well... perhaps it's time that we had a little chat.  See, what's going on is not a whole lot.  Now that we're done hibernating for the winter, we'd like to get out and about, do more things, DJ more events and parties, and see more scantily clad bodies (what?  I mean isn't that what happens in warmer weather???)

Anyway thing is we're a bit short on invitations at the moment.  So if you've got a party or event you need a DJ for we'd love to take care of that for you.  Just let us know.  Drop us a line on Twitter or Facebook or on our contacts page.  We'd love to hear from you!!

Oh and while we're at it, parties need promotions.  If you need a promo for your party or for that matter for your service or your podcast or your game mod, or for your cabal/org we'd be happy to help you out with that.  Just like with events, drop us a line and we'd be happy to work with you on your promo needs!

Not that we have nothing happening.  March also means St. Patrick's Day and you can expect St. Patrick's themed music cropping up at our shows during the week of the 17th.  

Additionally DJ Gemmikins has some plans up her sleeve.  It's not all set out yet, but she's got something in the works to fill the gap we have on Thursday nights and a new monthly show idea for the weekend.  Look for more information about those ideas coming up soon!

Anyway that's all my news for now.  We hope to hear from you guys soon!

As always, thanks for listening!



So have we all stopped crossing out the 5 and changing it to a 6 yet?
We've got a bit of news. We've got another Australian on staff. He has made it through all he's hoops and is now a full DJ. Welcome to DJ DaddyLes. For the moment you'll have to watch social media or the forums to catch when he is going live as he doesn't have a schedule yet. Currently he is doing TSW-OOC shows but this may expand to RP shows and shows in AO at some stage. We've got DJ West jumping through his hoops and bring some EDM, dance, etc. to TSW. Listen out for him. Lia has stepped up to the plate and been DJing like a champ taking over Eye of the Storm from Trevor.

In our existing shows there have been a couple of changes. The Grindhouse has got an hour longer so you can grind for longer. Blissful Elevations has gone off the schedule for a bit as Gemmikins is having real life business. Keep an eye out for Gemmi ninjas. For the time being Kriegshammer is focusing on TSW with The War-Forge.

Of course being February we've got a host of events coming up. We've got multiple Valentine's events on the weekend of the 14th. Check out the calendar to see exactly when they are for you.
On the subject of events if you want any events in either AO or TSW we are your people. Given enough lead time we can even make you audio advertisements and pretty posters thanks to the awesome artists we have on staff.

This is my first time writing ones of these as owner. Head to the comments to tell me all the grammar and spelling mistakes.

Well it seems the holiday time is upon us again. Holiday events are going on in both Anarchy Online and The Secret World. Of course, at GSP we're also celebrating the holidays. Here are the parties we have lined up:

We'll be celebrating in Anarchy Online on Saturday, December 19 starting at 4 pm, eastern time. DJ's Klinical and Dharzee will be rocking out from Reets Retreat on the Glass Dance floor until 8:00 pm, eastern. I'm sure there will be a nice mix of holiday tunes and plenty of other stuff to keep your bells jingling!

We then turn our attention to TSW where DJs Daydreaming and Nicksa will have Christmas from the Crusades in London. They expect to keep the festive holiday fun going another 6 hours!

New Years tends to be a time to reflect on the year that was. DJ Daydreaming is thinking on those lines as well and she'd very much appreciate you taking the time to respond to this short survey. https://twitter.com/gridstream/status/677882788524122113

Don't forget that in the midst of all this holiday fun, the final show for DJ Trevalin will be taking place at the Crusades in TSW on December 23 at 8 pm, eastern. Additionally, the final show for DJ Ashval will be the following week, December 30 from The Rumble Room in Reets in AO at 8 pm, eastern.

Since I'm on the topic of holidays though, we do want to ask your patience with us if there are cancellations this holiday season. It is a busy time of year for everyone. We'll try to do our best to keep everything covered as much as possible.

Still we do want to wish you all a safe and happy holiday season. No matter what you celebrate this time of the year, even if what you celebrate is not celebrating, please be safe and when you can, keep GSP close to your ears. I find that to be reason to celebrate right there!

Enjoy the Season and As always, thanks for listening!


First the Good News!

As you may have read DJ Klinical has returned to our ranks and while he's not officially official yet, I can give you some advanced notice. You can look for his show, Sound Diagnosis on Tuesdays from 2:00pm to 4:00 pm in AO, starting in the next week or two. He'll be playing an eclectic mix of music from way back when to the present day, musical therapy for the ears or whatnot. Each week he plans to follow a theme. No promises or guarantees on that one, but I for one will be curious to see what he comes up with.

More good news!

Our own Iolanthe - that's DJ Lia to you - will also be flooding your earholes in the near future with truly awesome tunes. You may have heard her first training set just yesterday and although she has some other training sessions to go, she's totally rocking it so far and we're really looking forward to letting her fly on her own!

More good news!

That's right we have another new DJ. DJ WestVillager (or Momentary as some may know) is starting his training hoops and also getting ready for flight. We'll keep you posted about his training sets as soon as we can get them scheduled. He plans to focus on electronica but you can expect to hear club music, lounge music, kpop, jpop, jrock and basically whatever his heart desires.

And more good news?

Yep. Daddyles is getting close to being able to take his trial runs as well. In addition there may be yet another new DJ that may be familiar to some of you just on the horizon.

Ok, so how about some non-DJ Good News?

I've got some of that to share as well. The winter holidays are upon us and we've got parties! Anarchy Online kicks off the party on December 19 at 4:00 pm eastern time with plans to keep the party going for 4 hours. Not to be outshined though, Daydreaming and Nicksa will pick up the party in TSW to keep the celebrations happening for another 6 hours. That's 10 hours of holiday goodness! Plans are still in the works, but I can assure you there will be contests, prizes, and giveaways!

So yeah, that's a lot of good news.

Anyway, as always, thanks for - What's that? I forgot the Bad News? Yeah, I guess I did. So, the bad news. You can find that here: http://forums.gridstream.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=27895

I know that's a bit of a bummer to say the least, but I hope we can all understand why this decision was made and be the awesome and supportive fans that I know you always have been.

I'm sorry to end on a down note, so how about I present some good news. We have one more event coming that I forgot to mention! January 6 is DJ Daydreaming's Birthday! That's right! We're having a birthday celebration for her at 8:00 pm EST in the Crusades. DJ Nicksa will be your host for what is sure to be one fabulous party. I have it on good authority that Daydreaming likes presents. Just saying. *grin*

I think that truly is all the news this time.

As always, thanks for listening!
