the Live365 hosted radio show.

Live365 gives 100-200MB of music storage to play programs. Since these are 32kbs files, this works out to almost 7 hours per 100MB of music. One station is 200MB, the other 100MB. Whenever new songs are uploaded, I sort the list in alphabetical order, then randomize the playlist, and this order will be repeated continuously until it gets updated again. The list must be at least 3 hours long to be looped.

This is streaming content, which means you listen to what is currently being played in the loop. Rules prevent publishing a playlist, tho you can see the last 3 songs, and 5 samples on the 365 site. You can also view a random sample of 10 songs from the total playlist, tho songs are rotated in and out and may not be on the current playlist.

Because these files are streaming, you don't download them as a file to your machine, and they are not the highest of quality, somewhere below CD or vinyl, but above, say, a Roy Ames Collectibles release.

My primary criterion for inclusion on the list is basically Texas based artists from the 60s, but I will make exceptions as appropriate.
Most music will be "rock" of some kind--psychedelic, garage, punk, folk, blues, pop, whatever subgenre prefix you care to tag on it.
Whenever possible, I will try to include both sides of a single, if I have access to it.

Naturally, there are a lot of songs I don't have, and I will gratefully accept contributions. You can encode the file yourself and upload it, or even email it, or some other arrangements can be made. I can give you full instructions.

The stream is in mono, which is the original format of most of these singles and many in stereo were mixed to play on AM radio, so this is really not a problem.
