WPKN is pleased to announce that we will once again be broadcasting Radio Vibes on WPKN 89.5 FM. The fun starts around 9:00 Thursday morning and continues all weekend. We will have traffic and weather information, frequent schedule information, interviews, and all the main stage music we can get (subject to artist agreement). When we shut down for the night, stay with our local hosts who will take you through the night and morning until we join you for the next broadcast day.

As you drive toward Bridgeport, you can pick WPKN up at around Stamford, Danbury, Rocky Hill, and Old Saybrook — as well in most of Long Island.

Stay in touch with us through our social media channels:That's Radio Vibes on WPKN 89.5 FM (http://wpkn.org).

Our coverage area is within the purple, except in the direction of Stamford, where it's only within the red.

If you register, there's a group called Vibe Tribe. Everyone in that group will see reports from other group members. It's good for when a bunch of people are converging on exciting locations such as Saratoga, Wantagh, Pawtucket, and Bridgeport.

Essentially it's GPS with crowdsourced traffic reporting. Its accuracy is directly proportionate to the number of active users on the road. It will calculate the speed of your route based on how fast other users are moving. In addition, anybody can report conditions such as traffic jams, constructions, hazards, and police. You can also see other users. When you are not in motion, it will allow you to type text messages that will be seen by your group or users nearby. (Typing is disabled when you are moving.)

The way Radio Vibes will use it is through the web interface, where we will be able to see everybody on the road coming into Bridgeport and moving through the line.

If anybody wants to test it sooner, install Waze, join the Vibe Tribe group and use it on your way to Phish and Furthur.

The funniest part is when you report the location of police, you can select "Visible" or "Hidden."

I asked the great and wise Tabbooma when I should announce it, and he said after the 4th. :lol:

Maybe I should post something today and get beta testers for the Phish & Furthur shows.

So yeah, I started a new thread.

All advice in the "Ask Tabbooma" thread is for entertainment purposes only. No actual advice is implied. If you do any of this stuff, you're on your own. Advice helped build America.

This is no joke, their name is August and they're very good...we'll be bringing at least 3 acoustic guitars, a mandolin, a cajon, and some other percussion instruments...might be fun..let me know (btw, my avatar to the left is my kid's Les Paul.

Our on-site studio is in a restricted area, but maybe I could do a field recording at a camp site. I have a lot going on over the weekend, so I can't promise it would make it to air if we got out there to record.
