Radio Bop Group

A number of radio stations that I listen have stopped working via my Soundbridges, although they still stream via my PC and other streaming devices I have. Four of these stations are from the same broadcaster:

• Radio Bop
• Radio Bop 60s
• Roots of Rock.US
• Radio Swing Worldwide

Taking Roots of Rock.US as an example, this is my understanding of the current situation after testing. The old link which no longer works is http://community.loudcity.com/player/rootsofrock-us/asx.asx?max_bitrate=1000

I have investigated the following:
• The radio station’s web site [url]rootsofrock.us/[/url] no longer works. It returns the message “This account has been suspended for being in direct violation of our term and conditions” from ad.fly.”
• The radio station still streams from Loud City using this link but the way it operates has changed. http://loudcity.com/stations/rootsofrock-us

It offers the station via five players:

• Web Player
• iTunes
• Windows Media Player
• Real Player
• WinAmp

All five options stream the radio station on my PC, except iTunes because it is not installed. However, only Windows Media returns a Soundbridge Supported URL using Radio Snooper.
This is an example URL: http://loudcity.com/launch/?file=asx&id=1055&playid=6253201201190429431055

Whilst I can play this URL on a Soundbridge and save it as a Pre-Set, it is not a permanent solution, as it has a limited life of less than 24 hours. I presume that &playid= is for a limited time session.

Googling reveals that this radio station is still streaming from a number of sources, but none of them produce a Soundbridge Supported URL. Examples include:

o ShoutCast.com
o RadioShaker.com
o http://rootsofrockus.rad.io/

I had a similar problem with The Doo Wop Express but the new URL that I found was Soundbridge compatible and it was not time limited.

Has anyone got any ideas as to how to find a Soundbridge Supported URL for these stations that works over time?

Many Thanks

The above 3 stations are currently working in the RadioRoku database.

I've got nothing for Roots Of Rock.US. Sorry.

Roots of Rock US (Radio Roku ID 28905) should work again, too.

Thanks for your helpful posts FrankB and Dupondt and thank to whoever fixed RadioRoku. I have checked this evening and all four stations are still working so I have reset the pre-sets on my Soundbridges.

I am very happy :D
