The Blast Blender New Streaming Addresses

TheBlast.FM stations recently changed streaming addresses for better connectivity from our main encoding site in Portland.

Streams are now hosted in San Diego and are much smoother, as internet routing changes had made the connection from Portland to the Washington, D.C. metro much less stable.

If  you are listening on a third party media player, app or system on which TheBlast.FM stations don’t seem to be working anymore, and you can load our new streaming addresses manually, those are found here:  https://blender.theblast.fm/home/other-streams/

Please notify us of any stream aggregators you use that need to be updated with streaming addresses.

HTTPS Streaming Is Here: Stream On Chrome, Brave, Etc Again With HTML5 Players

If you had trouble recently listening to TheBlast.FM radio stations with our HTML5 players labeled 128k, 64k and 32k on our websites, those troubles are gone, as we have upgraded our streams to make them HTTPS-compliant. 

The streaming addresses have also been updated in our Android, iOS, Roku, Apple TV, Amazon Fire and Blackberry apps so you may need to restart those apps to make sure the new stream addresses are loaded.  The old streaming addresses will go away soon. 

We have a request in to our Windows/XBox/Alexa Skills app developer to change the addresses in those apps.

Chrome 80 Won’t Blend, Here Are Plenty Of Other Browsers & Options You Can Use

So, Google has decided to make life difficult for streaming radio and its listeners.  The station won’t play in our HTML5 players on Chrome 80.

Well, guess what?   You CAN listen to TheBlast.FM radio stations via our HTML5 players in these browsers: Brave, Firefox, Opera, Safari, and Microsoft Edge, and probably a host of others.

On on any Windows 10 desktop or laptop computer, download the free TheBlast.FM Windows 10 app.

The Windows 10 app now supports our lyrics, album art and song ratings features!

If you are trying to listen on a phone or tablet, use Duck Duck Go, Firefox or download TheBlast.FM app in lieu of using the HTML5 players.

ElectroBlast! EDM show expands…

Our nightly 3 hour electronic dance music show called ElectroBlast! has expanded from 3 to 4 hours nightly!

The show now airs from 8 PM to 12 Midnight, USA/Canada Central Time.

There are several awesome Christian EDM record labels and numerous artists and groups servicing us.  If your label or group is not, you are missing out on worldwide airplay and promotion through our high sound quality internet radio station.

If you would like to begin servicing us your record label’s music or your group or artist’s music, contact:  Blender at TheBlast.FM through email.

 

Yes! We Are Playing Kanye West! Thousands Are Coming To Christ…

Some of the biggest names in “Christian Hip Hop”  “(CHH)” are missing on this station, because many of them are caught up in racism, race-baiting, America-hating, “woke-ness”, and black liberation theology, none of which are Biblical.  ALL lives matter.  Equally.

1 Corinthians 1:27-31

But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong. God chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things—and the things that are not—to nullify the things that are, so that no one may boast before him. It is because of him that you are in Christ Jesus, who has become for us wisdom from God—that is, our righteousness, holiness and redemption. Therefore, as it is written: “Let the one who boasts boast in the Lord.”

Enter Kanye West.  From outside of the walls of CHH.  That’s a foolish thing, right?  A “foolish” person…who got radically saved by the blood of Jesus Christ.

On The Blast Blender, we have started playing tracks off of his new album Jesus Is King.

God is using Kanye West…yes, Kanye West…to lead thousands of people unto Himself.  Read more about it here:
