Streams not auto playing in Firefox
Posted by Rick on 5/13/2019 @ 12:20 AM EDT

Due to changes to Firefox browser streams will not automatically begriming playing unless you allow autoplay for the site. To do that click the link of of the streams you want to listen to and then go to the address bar and click the icons that appear before the url, look to the bottom and under permissions and change the auto play sound setting to allow.

Alternatively, you may also just click stop and then start if you would rather not enable autoplay. Changes to the player are forthcoming and will hopefully be in place soon which will do away with the auto play altogether.

Thanks for your understanding,

Rick C.

We read it from other stations
Posted by JC on 12/27/2018 @ 1:01 AM EST

They claim they are the best. But they forget the best is also in the past music. But hey they can say what ever they want and they will but we prove it. We add music everyday even talk to real song writers. We do what best for our listeners. No ads in the website is a major plus. We believe in honesty not what we can lie and to get a listeners. Some people may not like us and thats ok. Thats is their loss. We focus on current and new listenres. Team HOT JDR

End of SHOUTcast listings a little sooner than expected
Posted by Rick on 12/25/2018 @ 12:30 AM EST

We have decided to end listing our streams on SHOUTcast as soon as Friday, December 28, 2018. We understand that many of our listeners use one of the many apps available to access the listings on SHOUTcast directory and tune into our streams but unfortunately, SHOUTcast has gotten on some kind of weird bullshit recently and thinks that we should have to pay to use our servers which we pay for and reduce the quality of our streams in order to list our streams on their directory the way we have since 2006.

Beginning Saturday, December, 29, 2018 all of our streams can be found @ http://dir.xiph.org/ under the same names as they are currently listed as on SHOUTcast.

Our streams can also still be on all of the other various directories which they are listed and none of the stream URL's will change and in fact, the only change which will be noticeable will be the removal of our listings on SHOUTcast.

So to recap, Beginning on Friday, December 28, 2018 we will begin the transition and remove all streams listings from the SHOUTcast directory and beginning on Saturday, December 29, 2018 our streams can be found on http://dir.xiph.org/ under the same names.

Will update as soon as I have some idea of exactly when and how long downtime will be but as of right now it will begin sometime Friday and possibly last into the early morning hours Saturday.

Thanks for your understanding and for listening to HOTJDR.

Finally, HOTJDR has a Website
Posted by Rick on 9/23/2018 @ 10:29 PM EDT

Welcome to HOTJDR.net!

HOTJDR finally has a website, certainly has been a long time coming. There are a few issues and most of those will be worked out over the next few days. Some however will not be worked out as they are only solvable with a new website (we just borrowed this one from JDRFM and got to borrow all the problems too!) which will come in time but for now we''ll just have to deal with it.

In the meantime, enjoy the worlds HOTTEST music!

Rick
