I love Lainchan radio. Whenever I can't think of anything specific to listen to or can't be bothered hunting for an album I open it up for background noise.

I like the range and it's almost always to my tastes. Sometimes super repetitive stuff gets irritating, but it never lasts so long as to be a dealbreaker.

A feature I'd like is a tracklist, something showing the now playing and maybe the last 5 tracks or something.

I have had a few problems in the past where the broadcast seems to go dead, the tab still shows noise but nothing comes through, I have to refresh to get it back. This is on the .ogg stream and it's entirely possible it's a fault with my setup.

Ha, no, I meant creating one (singular) podcast/hour mix in a heavily styled way for Lainchan, and leaving it in the playlist so that it pops up once in a while and suits the vibe of the stream.

It'd take up too much time to do one on regular basis.

I listen to it every now and then. Seems whenever I do, it's playing jungle. Which is all right. I think it's just a coincidence though.

I really dig it but I also think it could need some more love.
For example more music, I have seen tons of great stuff uploaded to the volafile but they never seem to get added and it should be able to chain intros and the actual song together like it is the case with Perturbators "The New Black" and "Retrogenisis" and even more with "Welcome Back" and "Perturbators Theme".

The best way to do this, in my opinion, is for anyone who is interested to upload a sample of how they'd do such a thing. Maybe we could end up with a couple DJ's.

It seems good, but your voice is a little quiet, maybe try soundproofing your recording area a little and raising your mic's volume?

Actually, I was being really quiet because it was 2:00 in the morning and didn't want to wake anyone. xD

One thing I noticed is that the coding for the page doesn't work well with either of my computers resolutions, both 1366x768. The radio interface falls below the screen, and using the mouse to scroll down doesn't work (I have to press pageup, pagedown, or the arrow keys). If I do scroll down, there is a notably empty space that the picture doesn't fill up.

The page may work fine with larger resolutions (i.e. 1920x1080), but I'm going to try to edit and rework the page's html/stylesheet myself. If I succeed in making it work, I'll probably post the code.

I've already started collecting songs for a second mix but give me time to get them together properly and when the second one comes along it'll be of good quality. If I rushed into doing the second mix it wouldn't be as well researched or as well put together.

DJs, news, interviews, espeak reads of books or whatever, anything.
An rss feed with torrents would make it a full podcast, with music in between the shows if you join the stream.
