Still no website and still no stream! How hard is it to get that sorted?
Fire's live webstream is available at http://www.radiofeeds.co.uk/query.as...e=FIRE%20Radio

Brilliant, thanks for that!

Loving listening to Fire online, its been a long time since I heard it.

Listening now, is that David Perry on air now, one half of "David and Caroline" from Heart Dorset/2CR? Is he doing Fire Drive now, what happened to Niall Moloney?

The was a little get together back in July, and a bigger reunion for presenters and staff tomorrow night in Bournemouth - for all those that have worked at 2CR/Heart at 5-7 Southcote Road since it launched in 1980.

Fire Radio seem to have enhanced the music somewhat, now playing more 90s dance tracks, such as Baby D and Bobby Brown etc. Sounds great.

The website is developing too, I've noticed that it actually has a full schedule with all the different specialist shows. Jay Rachett on Monday night, James Herkes on Tuesday, J Fresh on Wednesday, Chris Connor on Thursday, Simon Sinfield on Fridays; then loads more at the weekend, looks like it's all through the nights on Friday and Saturday nights. Brilliant.

Just tuned in and they're playing Feeder.

So is this yet another former great dance station that's been consigned to a smelly rocky grave?

I know what you mean. I think the whole "Hit music station" (or whatever it is) strapline is a bit lame.

But I guess with dance not being the force it once was, and a wave (no pun intended) Fire rode while it could, the station has to maximise listeners while still being a bit different. I'm still a bit hacked off that the evening shows which essentially provide that difference are so badly publicised on the website. "Bio coming soon" is just plain crap and unprofessional.

Fire, to those of us who have stuck with it through thick and a lot of thin, lacks the courage of its convictions sometimes.

Is it a dance station as long-term fans tend to want? Is it a mini-Galaxy/Capital South Coast as the daytime playlist seems to indicate? Can it be both?

And can any station carry on with the same two presenters doing pretty much everything? No disrespect to long-serving jocks Dave and Niall but a few more voices on daytime and at the weekends wouldn't go amiss. There are truckloads of presenters out there. If Fire can afford DAB it can afford some more talent to play the tunes, surely? The level of automation/voice-tracking at Fire continues to bore me.

i dont think you listen like a normal person. you 'presented a wine review slot on Wey Radio in the early 90's' so you - with respect - sound too old and too anorak to have the opinion of a normal 15-34 year old target listener. or a normal person.

bitch, bitch, bitch about a station you clearly dont listen much. looking at ofcom, they do 40 odd hours of specialist progs for 285k people. kiss do far less for 9+ million tsa. ditto galaxy. still you bitch, bitch bitch.

so your 'hacked off' about no profiles for the specialist shows you clearly don't listen to. why? you only seem to want to look up more things to bitch, bitch. bitch about.

name a ofcom licenced dance station? why shoud fire ignore the audince its obliged to serve - 15-34 year olds - to play music its taget audince does not buy en masse? would you rather 'the breeze 107.6' becouse in the real world that is what would happen if fire became unviable.

I see that The Coast are rebroadcasting Fire Radio via their Dorset web stream. What's going on?

So how do they get the audio onto their web stream. I always assumed it would be a direct feed from the studio. Do they actually use an off air feed?

It's interesting considering they're different frequencies. G Media server error perhaps?

Its been like that for a while I think, regarding the 107.7 on Fire's website, must of got confused as Nova is 107.7FM
