******** A NEW WAY TO LISTEN TO LCC RADIO IS ON THE WAY ********
After almost two decades of streaming online with Live365, LCC Radio will bring you a new way to listen online. Recent changes have caused Live365, our former streaming provider to close their doors; we wish those at the company the best in their new endeavors. What does this mean for you? We are working on getting a new system in place that will provide you with a more enjoyable and interactive experience. To prepare for this, our online stream for both HD-1 and HD-2 will be down for the moment, we will keep you posted on our progress here at our website and on the air at 89.7FM.
What is HD Radio?
If you haven't heard of HD Radio yet, here’s some background…
If you have an HD (High Definition) radio, the broadcasts of local radio stations will have CD-quality sound. The reception is static-free featuring full frequency response and crystal clear reception. With an HD radio, signal fades, static, hiss, and pops are things of the past.
It also allows stations to "segment" their frequency and offer additional programming. Among the HD Radio features LCC Radio offers - a second channel (89.7 HD-2) that offers jazz music on a full time basis. We call this new channel WLNZ HD-2. And it’s on the radio, but you need an High Definition radio receiver to listen, or you can listen to it on the Internet.
Unlike satellite radio services, HD Radio does not require a subscription. It's free for consumers just like today's analog AM and FM radio. HD radios are currently available for purchase at select electronic stores and on the Internet. It is likely that as the that these types of radios will become "the standard" in automobiles and home systems as the technology makes its way into the mainstream public.
