The Blast and The Blast Blender love to give you many options for streaming our stations, depending on your tastes, your available bandwidth, your devices, and your media players of choice. Now on our site, our 128k mp3 stream is playable in an HTML5 player that works on all major desktop/laptop computer browsers AND it works on some mobile browsers, including Safari and Chrome on iPhone and iPad; and Firefox and Chrome on Android. The flash players and HTML5 players on our site have full metadata support, lyrics (when available), links to artist information and videos. The HTML5 player for the 80k Ogg Vorbis stream also works on Firefox and Chrome (desktop) (and mobile for Android phones and Android tablets). Firefox is recommended for Android if you want to use the Ogg Vorbis stream. The Ogg Vorbis codec is not supported by Internet Explorer or Safari.

Blender News & Music News Headlines
The Blast Blender broadcasts at a variety of bit rates...as low as 20 kbps, so we can reach people in even the remotest areas that have slow internet connections. Here is a list of ways to listen to us that are not otherwise listed on our home page. This page will find a permanent home inside the "All Streams, All Media Players" button shortly.
Both Blender on air systems have gone down* in the last few weeks…before we had a chance to move everything to its coming new server destination.
We still have most or all of the music but we will need time to get it into its new formatting in the new automation system on its new computer destination.
Push has come to shove. Prayers are appreciated.
As noted in the October Blast Bulletin, the old automation system the Blender is moving away from is not officially supported on the OS we were most recently using it on, as the company that makes the software has stopped making updates and upgrades to the software.
At this time, we do not have a time estimate as to when this mammoth task will be completed.
Follow @TheBlastBlender on Twitter and you will be updated when we resume Blending.
The new TheBlast.FM iOS and Android apps have arrived! These apps have six streams from each of our stations (The Blast: Christian Rock/Alternative/Metal) and (The Blast Blender: progressive Christian pop). The app also gives you the ability to rate the currently Blasting or Blending song, favorite songs, and read the lyrics as the song plays. It has links to videos from the currently playing band, and if you like the song and want to buy it and click through the iTunes or Amazon link, TheBlast.FM will receive a portion of the proceeds. Get the Android app here, for free: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.jacobsmedia.blast
Get the iOS app here: http://www.apple.com/itunes/affiliates/download/?id=399662124
The app will work on iPhones, iPads, and iPod Touches.
Kindle and Blackberry users: you can also get your Blast and/or Blend on using the MP3 and MP3 Pro streams in the HTML5 players that are on our Mobile Blasting and Mobile Blending pages.
And on PC, Mac, and Linux desktop and laptop computers, you can enjoy these features now in the Flash and HTML5 players that are on our full websites.
TheBlast.FM and The Blast Blender each have a Windows phone app. They are also both free. The search term is TheBlast.FM .
