• about us

    This non commercial radio station is all about American Music from the fourties until today. Also known as 'vocal jazz', 'easy listening' or 'adult contemporary'.


    "It's not what you have; it's what you do with it!" This stream is ‘just’ a hobby. The business plan is my personal wallet. It's existence is a result of a long radio life. In the seventies I started doing radio with my lifetime friend as a hobby. (hospital radio) Together we started a radio production company and we made radio shows on public radio in the eighties and nineties. But these days it’s a hobby again. I simply carry a torch for this type of music since it’s the cradle of the very best American Music.





    our radio format

    Non-stop music!

    The selected songs are non-stop played. Every now and then a few station calls, new cd promotions. Also once an hour the real-time Manhattan temperature. The timeframe of the ‘on the hour jingles’, vintage US radio commercials, and last but not least, the music, confirms the feel and experience, of it’s Manhattan base.

    Songtitles

    Songtitles shown on our real-time playlist, come from our 'Music Library' out of 14,558 selected songs. (April 1, 2020) These songs get completed with other format items like; new releases, vintage commercials, unique station promos and the actual Manhattan temperature. There is also an extra focus on the oeuvre of the 'Chairman Of The Board; 'Frank Sinatra!'

    Actual Playlist Shows Other Songs Than Played!?

    In most cases: just press f5; refresh page. Or delete cache memory or restart your browser or in some cases your phone/tablet/laptop/pc. Sometimes we do have change the servers to another machine during the day or night. Specially when you're a longtime listener the playlist of your device might still is set to 'the old server'.

    "TX2AB" Huh?

    In our real-time playlist you may often see these kind of letter/number combo's at the end of an album title. It stands for a big 'thank you' to the person with the 'AB'initials who sent us music which made it to our music library.

    Vintage Radio Commercials

    These often (audio-wise) upgraded vintage commercials need to have a few characteristics to get included in our stream. They are sung and melodic, legendary or funny. So you can hear some old commercials about sigarettes, cigars and alcohol too, which aren't played anymore these days but a normal/accepted thing in the twentieth century.

    Audio Stream Formats

    The 128 Kb/s mp3 stream. This is the standard for most media players on any device. The second possibility, the 64Kb aac plus stream is a newer format with the same superb audio quality but reduces 50% data costs for you! Installation: Download the plugin from this page. install the plugin and close your browser. Restart device and open your browser again. That's it.

    Our 2020 Song Additions Until Today.

    Like any other music collector, we are constantly looking for- and selecting American Songbook renditions. Better quality, Stereo in stead of Mono or whole new ones. We tried to get in touch with Grace Haggerty from Long Island. But were not succesfull. She made a fantastic album recently. In case you know her or do have her telephone number or email, please let us know. And if you're interested into our recent additions, here's the link to this (temporary) pdf.  (April 5, 2020)

    Our 2020 Additions


    Surfing And Listening On A Smartphone!

    This website is optimized for tablets, laptops and desktops. Activate 'auto-rotate' on your smartphone and look at our website 'sideways' on your phone, the biggest side on top. Like most websites it doesn't show huge. It sure needs some enlarging with your fingers to see it all and be able to press the buttons. But we think it's much better than the older version of our website. (March 30, 2020)

    Go To Us At  TuneIn.com


    The direct URL's and TuneIn.com.

    Here are also the direct url's to copy and paste into your internet radio or media player.
    http://tgas.dyndns.org:8001 (for MP3)                    http://tgas.dyndns.org:8010 (for AAC+)
    Tip: If you use 'mobile data' the ACC+ stream uses just 50% of data compared to MP3 but has the same quality! Or go to TuneIn.com, they forward our stream. 13,500 people already checked us over there as one of their favorite stations.   (March 29, 2020)


    Guestbook Double Scrollbar And Bad Text View Solved!

    Today we solved two little guestbook issues. The double scrollbars are reduced to one. Also all the written text from the listeners are correct in it's frame now. But we added a scrollbar to right of the 'Remarkable Music Releases' on the 'Listen Live' page. Now we can add more release info items to that page too! (March 26, 2020)


    This website is tested and works fine using:

    Google Chrome, Firefox, Opera, Safari (Apple OS), Microsoft Bing, even the older Microsoft Explorer 11 (the one with the golden line over the e). However these tests show that it ain't fully compatible with Microsoft Edge. We hope it will be solved soon! By the way I decided to to put this version on-line, though it isn't fully 100% ready yet. But conflicts with a few internet search apps decided me to do this faster than I was intended to do. (March 24 2020)


    Real-time Playlist Shows Other Songs Than Currently Played!?

    In most cases: just press the F5 button ; which means 'refresh page'. Restarting your browser will often help too. How to delete cache memory on your tablet or smartphone? Press the 'audio minus 'plus 'on/of button' on your tablet/smartphone both for ten seconds. Why does it happen? Sometimes we do have change the active servers to another machines. This issue might happen specially when you're a longtime listener. In that case the playlist page on your device might still be set to 'the old server'. (March, 23 2020)


    "All bad things do have a good side also!"

    Due to the corona pandemic we all had to stay home. So what to do? I chose a positive activity and built a brand new, more catchy, website complete with moving elements. All items you are used to to see on the older version like; the real time playlist, the audio player, our guestbook do work now. Still your suggestions are welcome! (March 20, 2020)
