WELCOME! This is all about American Music from the forties
through today. Also known as Vocal Jazz, Easy Listening or Adult
"It’s not what you have; it’s what you do with it!” Rene Dussen: “It started as a hobby, became a passion and is today’s dedication. In the 70’s I started doing local radio with my lifelong music friend.
A 20-hour Sinatra music/docu series on public radio gave us national recognition later on. After that, we made American Songbook radio shows every Sunday throughout the 80’s and 90’s. 24/7 continuous broadcasting is not only time-consuming, but expensive, as well. So, receiving an occasional donation is wonderful thing.
It's strictly used to reduce our monthly broadcast license bills, nothing more. Our
goal is to pay tribute to this type of original American music since it's also the cradle of all today's popular music genres. To me its songwriters and performers are the real American Ambassadors!"
René Dussen, on behalf of our group of volunteers.
MP3 versus AAC!
Which codec is better for the both of us?
The player on this website uses the AAC codec.
AAC (Advanced Audio Coding) and MP3 (MPEG-1
Audio Layer 3) are lossy formats for audio
files. MP3, an audio-specific format, was the de
facto standard of digital audio compression for
the transfer and playback of music on digital
But today, designed to
be the successor of the MP3 format, AAC
generally achieves better sound quality than MP3
at similar bit rates. This difference in quality
is more obvious at lower bitrates. AAC is also
Apple's alternative to MP3. It's lossy and
compressed too, but sounds generally better. AAC
uses only half the bandwith compared to mp3
reaching the same audio quality. So using AAC on
your and our side makes streaming an easier
connection listening in your car or using WIFI
with low bitrates. Plus all current devices,
Androids too, can handle AAC.
