Our station owner, and manager Bruce Nickles passed away on April 24th, 2022. His family and next-of-kin have requested the station operations and management be transferred to Ventra Radio of Syracuse, New York.
What does this mean?
What is happening?
The station owner of AllOldies247.com has passed away. Due to an inability to manage the station, the family of the owner has requested the station be transferred to Ventra Radio to ensure it stays on the air.
What will be changing?
Immediately, nothing will change aside from the station moving from one server to another. Short-term goals are to remove the station from Live365 as no access could be obtained to maintain that stream, and move it to a corporate owned Shoutcast/Icecast system, at which time a link will be provided to our listeners. At that time, we will begin development on a new website for the station, and potentially a new voiceover package. A change in name or format is not likely as we want to try to keep the bones of the station as close to what it is now as possible.
Dedicated listeners need not worry, Ventra Radio does not plan on overhauling this station. Small changes will be made to keep the station functioning, but true to the vision that Mr. Nickles had for it.
We appreciate every single listener that Bruce had acquired over the last 8 years, and hope you will continue to enjoy good times, and great oldies under this new ownership. For the time being, you can still continue to listen live, on our Live365 profile.
How can I help?
Listeners can assist us by being patient with us for the time being. While Ventra Radio does have over 25 years of experience in the broadcasting field, this is the first time we've acquired a radio station due to an owner passing, so there are a lot of things that we've got to get access to, to ensure the station's smooth operation. If at anytime the website or stream become unavailable, please let us know so we can properly manage it.
