Feedback: Issues With Streaming via NPR iPhone App plus Keillor Giveaway Entries

May 5, 2014

We've been interacting with listener, Glenn, about a streaming issue.  He wrote, “I am a contributing member of the WEKU station, and enjoy listening to your news and information channel on the radio, BUT your channel is the only one I cannot get by streaming on my iPhone. I just get the intro message about contributing then nothing more.”

Send your feedback to: WEKU (at) EKU (dot) EDU, call 859-622-1657, post on Facebook or send a tweet @889weku

 Glenn's problem, which we have verified, has been with the NPR iPhone app.  We’ve been talking with our streaming provider, NPR Digital Services.  As of Friday, we had no resolution of the issue.  But, we can tell you there are other ways to listen to the WEKU streams, in addition to your desktop or laptop, the “Public Radio Player” app is working fine as is Tune In.  The Eastern Kentucky University app has a link to WEKU's streams and it works quite well, despite problems with the actual WEKU app.

Jon posted a comment on WEKU dot FM in response to the news story about the University of Kentucky's tree planting efforts.  He says, “Proud of the UK community for its determination on this project. It’s amazing to see the culmination of several years work begin to take on true form. All it takes is time, good people and good intentions for things like this to that root.”

We're offering listeners an opportunity to register by Facebook or Twitter for a drawing to a reading and signing of Garrison Keillor's new book this Thursday.  We've had some comments with those.

Melissa commented “Garrison hosts my favorite radio show. Love them (him and the show) both!”

William “liked” our Garrison Keillor post and wrote a Facebook “review,” whatever that is, but he said, “I enjoy the programming. You present This American Life Friday's nights- that's great!”

We'll be conducting the drawing for these tickets on Wednesday, so if you're interested, we encourage you to post or “like” on Facebook or send us a tweet.  You'll need to follow us before you can send a direct message to @ 889weku.

As always, we're interested in your feedback.  You can give it on Facebook or Twitter, send an email to WEKU @ eku dot edu or call 859-622-1657.

Then tune in again next Monday at 6:33 and 8:49 am or 5:33 pm.
