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.
The Blast Map is updating again. This shows Blast and Blender listenership in real time.
Some of the things listeners have come to expect when listening to The Blast and The Blast Blender are: high quality streams, bit rate choices, and accessibility. We thought we had all the bases covered, with bit rates from 128 kbps down to 24 kbps, using the AAC+ codec at 24 kbps, which is light years better in sound than a 24 kbps mp3 stream. However, we were recently informed by a passionate Blast and Blender listener named Rayhan, in the south Asia country Bangladesh, that he has an "ancient" smart phone (built in 2005) that can only play certain kinds of mp3 streams. He also said that he needs a low bit rate stream, as mobile bandwidth is very expensive in Bangladesh, and he says the mobile internet is slow there. So despite the low sound quality of this bit rate and codec combination, we have set up a 24 kbps mp3 stream for Rayhan and others who are in a similar situation. You will find the streaming address on our "All Streams, All Media Players" page:
