LDS Internet Radio Station Now On Its Own
ST. GEORGE, UTAH -- KZION LDS
Internet Radio, the only independent, Internet-based music radio
station which caters to members of The Church of Jesus Christ of
Latter-day Saints, recently took another step forward in progress as
they began operating with their own equipment. Previous to May 9th,
KZION had used Live365.com's free services for broadcasting.
John Hesch, co-owner of KZION realized that with attracting over 300
listeners per day, the services offered by Live365.com failed to
complete the professional and spiritual image he envisioned for
KZION. "We felt the advertising on Live365 was disruptive for our
style of radio station and we encountered too many interruptions."
Now that KZION's service is completely controlled by KZION staff,
Hesch and his Canadian partner Kim Siever are able to offer live
broadcasting 24 hours per day and seven days per week. "When we were
with Live365," Siever says, "we were restricted in what we could do.
Live 365 required us to upload our songs to their servers and then
users could listen to them as they were listed."
"With our new system, we can take requests and play what songs they
want, like traditional DJs," Hesch adds. "We have over 750 songs
currently listed and that number is constantly growing. Visitors to
the website are able to browse through our catalogue, pick a song,
and within a few minutes hear it playing over their computer."
KZION has humble beginnings, starting as just a couple of mp3
downloads Hesch and Siever offered for free on one of their other
websites at http://www.ldsteach.com.
Seeing the popularity of offering downloads, they managed to find
more LDS musicians and then began offering a continuous stream of
music with Live365.
