"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil."

 (Live 365 situation, as of January 20, 2016):
The news is out... Live365 will be closing down on  January 31, 2016. A number of listeners E-Mailed me expressing concern about how this is going to affect Old Christian Radio. (Old Christian Radio started on Live365 as an experimental station on March 7, 2000 and continued on Live365 for close to 16 years.)

Old Christian Radio will continue after January 31, 2016 on another streaming service provider. (The change over will take place within the next two weeks, God willing.) A new experimental station with a new service provider will be set up and running within the next few days. (More on that when it happens.)

Here is what is happening...

Live365 will be shutting down January 31st. The whole issue has everything to do with a change in how USA music performance royalties are calculated for those who took a statutory music performance license through the USA Copyright office. Soundexchange, an affiliate corporation of RIAA (Recording Industry Association Of America), is responsible for collecting royalties and enforcing compliance under the statutory licensing model. (Live 365's former arrangement was the "percentage of revenue" performance royalty calculation model.) The "pay by song" model they will be forced into will make it too expensive for them to operate. 

Old Christian Radio has opted out of paying SoundExchange performance royalties back in 2007. It was at that time I decided to go with the "direct permission" route with the respective artist and labels.
This is explained here: http://www.oldchristianradio.com/donations.html

If Old Christian Radio had to pay performance royalties to Sound Exchange on a Statutory License... The new licensing model would have cost me over $3000 a month (due to the large audience size of Old Christian Radio.).

God bless you and have a good day.

Old Christian Radio
[10-29-17] -- I am now "live streaming" from my new broadcast control server effective Sunday Morning 10/29/2017 at 12:00AM. [The broadcast control server is what controls all station programming and sends the 128Kbps mp3 stream to Live365 for broadcast distribution.] It now has a "rock solid" stable internet connection (100Mbps) running to it. This should eliminate the problems of song skips and random stream drops that have been a problem with the station for the last couple of weeks.

You will still hear partial song plays during the Ad Break times when Live365 has no ads to put in those spaces. (Its better than 60 seconds of silence.) -- I am filling those spaces with 60 second music clips from the Harp CD's of Dena And Joanna Marini of http://www.marinimadeharps.com/

10-08-17-- Old Christian Radio has moved back to Live365. (Live365 has new owners and they made me an offer that was hard to refuse.) -- The new player is a lot better than the old Securenet player. It is more simple and "streamlined." This player is "mobile" friendly and will play on Apple IOS (using Safari) and Android devices. [When the station comes up, you may have to click the "play button" to start listening.]

Open letter to my OCR listeners (as of October 8, 2017)
Thank you for listening to Old Christian Radio. OCR has been on the air since March of 2000. I know it has been a blessing to many people with the conservative music played on it. I've tried to keep it "ad free" as long as I can.

The situation is... Its getting too expensive for me to run this station "ad free" and "subscription free." Due to the large audience size of OCR,  the music licensing fees and hosting fees are just too much. Donations and profits from online store sales are not enough to cover all the hosting and music licensing costs. With a wife and two young kids. I can no longer spare the extra cash to put into OCR to cover its losses. I hate to close the station down because I can't pay for it.

The new station will be audio "ad supported." -- Live365 will cover the hosting costs and split the ad revenue with OCR. (I still have to pay the music licensing fees.) I hope to have better options in the future. (Maybe an "ad free" subscription station in the future.)

I'm just not the type of person who likes to beg people for money. It is hard enough to get Christians to tithe to their local church.  Why not let the advertisers pay for it by sponsoring good content?

I know there will be some people who will quit listening because they don't like the ads. (Who does?) -- It is interesting to note how Christians want to ban advertisers for sponsoring bad content and yet they will still complain when advertisers sponsor good content. -- At least OCR is still free to listen to.

Don't worry, each commercial break period will be 2 minutes max. They will be spread out across the listening day. 

Ad space on OCR is limited to 5 minutes of audio ads per hour. (This is reasonable, considering the fact that a normal "airwave" radio station plays 18 minutes an hour of commercials.) They are the same ads you normally hear on a typical "airwave" radio station.

I hope gives you, the listener, a better understanding of my situation.

The old (Securenet) station has been shut down on Sunday Night. (October 8, 2017)

God  bless you and good day.

Please let me know how it is working: mcfadden-michael@sbcglobal.net 

From here...What's the future of Old Christian Radio (OCR)?
1. OCR will continue to be a conservative traditional Christian Music Station with NO "Christian Rock." 
2. More new conservative music will be put on the air.  
3. Newly redesigned website (in the future.) -- A better Facebook presence.

Old Christian Radio Mission Statement
Thank you for visiting my website and listening to Old Christian Radio. .

I've created a unique kind of Christian radio station on the internet.... Old Fashioned Christian Music Radio is a station that plays great old fashioned Christian music with NO "Christian Rock".

My station ID's every song played as it's played, along with the last two you heard (or missed).

My other website http://www.oldchristianmusic.com sells nearly all of the music that is played on Old Christian Radio.

This is an ALL MUSIC station. .

The main mission for this station's existence is to be a blessing to the Christian community by playing Godly Christian music that doesn't sound like the devil's music.

The musical emphasis on this station is of a Godly spiritual nature. (Music that appeals mainly to "the flesh" is NOT played here)

This station's music format is: Sacred/Traditional Christian. 

About 99% of this station's music came from "in-print" CD's of artists (past and present). Some of the artists I play are: London Philharmonic Orchestra, 16 Singing Men, Tom Fettke And Billy Ray Hearn, Linda McKechnie, Rudy Atwood, Don Marsh Orchestra, Old Fashioned Revival Hour Choir, Ron Hamilton, Majesty Orchestra, and many others. I will add and announce new titles and make them available for purchase, as I am able to do so

Now... Please allow me to introduce myself...

My name is Michael McFadden. I live in Grand Prairie, Texas. I'm an Independent Baptist. I've been saved for a lot of years. I work in the PA/Sound room (primarily during the Wednesday PM Services) of my local church (Trinity Baptist Church, Arlington, Texas). When I was young, I had a long standing interest in radio. Radio was a fascinating field to me. My dreamed that I'd be on radio someday broadcasting good Christian music. I've never liked what is called today's (worldly) "Christian music" and "Christian living". Because of what I've seen in many churches, in my younger years, I resisted many opportunities to get saved. When I became an adult; I believed on the Lord Jesus Christ and got saved from my sins. I told God that I don't want any part of that phony, worldly Christianity being practiced today. I decided to become an "old fashioned Christian" (as the way that Jesus would want me to live) in how I live my life and in the music I listen to.

If you like this station..... Please BOOKMARK this site and do your friends a favor by telling them about Old Christian Radio.

God bless you and have a good day.
