WRRJ Radio was an internet radio project I started back in 2007. The main inspiration behind it was so my best friend and I could host our own radio shows. However, the concept would grow over the years.
In January 2011, WRRJ was rebooted after a hard drive failure. The concept was changed to focus on general spirituality. I affiliated the internet station with the Center for Spiritual Living of Greater Dayton. Through this affiliation, I live-streamed their Sunday Celebration services. Furthermore, members of the Center hosted their own radio shows as well. And the list of programming grew to also include different meditations throughout the day and week.
The technology running WRRJ Radio was just a basic web server and a radio automation server. But I designed it with custom scripts to allow mostly unattended operation. Others could uploaded their prerecorded shows via the website for airing at their scheduled show time. And the media library could also be managed remotely. I wrote scripts to automatically recover programs when they crashed. And I wrote other scripts to automatically read out weather forecasts, weather alerts, traffic conditions, the latest news, and more.
Notable Radio Shows
The project was permanently discontinued roughly August 2014 because I moved to a location that had very unreliable internet. Furthermore, I felt it was a bad idea continuing to run a project that had a call sign, something that could possibly get me in trouble with the FCC even though, at the time, no radio station had those call letters (a radio station would later pop up in Florida with the call sign WRRJ though, which is completely unrelated to this project, and I have no affiliation with them).
