Jan 28 Tripradio changes: there's now a fallback stream which plays music when there's no DJ. As a result, the username is changed to tripradio - the password isn't changed. To get FTP access to upload fallback stream music, pm bod.

How to apply

Send a message to either BaconOverdose/bod or Teknos on the IRC chat to get the streaming password.

You can also ask in the IRC chat channel #tripradio on Snoonet.
