Pumpkin FM, runs on two servers, Abbott & Costello. Unfortunately two days ago Costello gave up on life, the fan failed and the processor fried itself. I have since managed to rebuild the channels that were hosted on Costello on a Virtual Windows server in the Cloud. I have had to close down for a short while all channels that are located on Abbott so I may upload 500GB worth of content to the new cloud server. Sorry for any inconvenience. Hope to back up fully by the end of today..

We apologies for issues with Pumpkin FM Server 2. This has impacted 1940s, 50's, Classical Radio, British Radio and the Adventure & Western Channel. The problem should now have been fixed. The server was overheating which led to the issues. We have added extra cooling fans. Thank you for your kind understanding.

Enjoy all of the comedy channel the continuity announce who must have the most annoying stupidly affected voices that I've heard on radio for years !

Hi Bill, the continuity announcer is a computer generated voice or text to speech πŸ™‚ When I get time I plan to introduce real human voices, the emphasis is on when I get time πŸ™‚

Why does the woman that does the station promo piece on '1940's 1950's radio always say that it's 'MONDAY' ?? No matter what day it is, she says it's 'monday'. Stupid and annoying.
Admin Reply by: pumpkinfm
I don't think she says Monday at all, please let me know when this is said and I will check! Thanks

The British Comedy channel seems to be stuck; it’s only playing a brief β€œDo You Remember This?” drop/cue and then 20-30 seconds of silence - sometimes rebooting the stream, sometimes not.

Hi, we had to reboot the server yesterday and this should have fixed the issue. Sorry for any inconvenience! John

Love the network,listen just about every night. Have you any idea when the schedule for the Sci-Fi and Horror station will be up? Thanks
Admin Reply by: pumpkinfm
Hi Trip, I will get around to it eventually, not to much time on my hands at the moment as I am working away. I will let you know when I have scheduled that particular station. Seasons Greetings. John

Really enjoy the Comedy channel - by why the hourly time pips? Totally misleading due to encoding delays they only work on FM, so serve no useful purpose being up to 40 seconds out!
Admin Reply by: pumpkinfm
I don't expect people to set their watches by the pips, especially with the network lag. But many people who listen do like to be aware when the top of the hour arrives, some people use it as an indication of when they should leave or start work and it has a retro feeling all of it's own πŸ™‚

Admin Reply by: pumpkinfm
Hi Ted It was a rogue encoder. I have re-installed it and seems fine now. Regards John

Hi John,could you do the same on the pumpkin landing page put a section in the main menu for the channel url's ,just as this is on rok ? It's almost impossible to find the correct irks otherwise,to get irks into the app that I much prefer to use for web radio,I have to search out the station with browser or app,load it into tune in or another player that shows the actual stream url,then copy/paste that into the app I use,for pumpkin,that's going to be 30 operations just to get the urls
Admin Reply by: pumpkinfm
Ted, do you mean the p[layer links?

We are currently upgrading PFM Server 1 to Windows 10. This may take a couple of hours. Sorry for any inconvenience caused.

We suffered a power cut earlier this evening which took out one of our servers and 50% of our channels. Naturally it happened when I was away from HQ. The server has now been rebooted and the channels will slowly start to reappear. Sorry for any inconvenience! John

Pumpkin FM One is off the air on the Tunein app. You have been off the air for almost one week. Can you fix this?
Admin Reply by: pumpkinfm
Hi Rob We have upgraded a streaming server and 2 IP addresses changed. I have written to Tunein for them to upgrade the directory listing, it seems to have been updated as of this morning. John

I have a Windows mobile telephone running 8.1 which will not open links from Shoutcast. Can you recommend a solution so I can listen to you streams? Thank you in advance.
Admin Reply by: pumpkinfm
Hi Ted I would recommend that you download either the Tunein app or Shoutcaster app, both available by visiting the Store on your mobile telephone. Both apps are free.
