Radio Stream

Our main Internet radio stream has an always fresh and constantly changing playlist with the best Gaudiya style Kirtans on the planet. We’re also working on live broadcasts from Vrindavan, Mayapur and Kirtan festivals all over the world, but currently our radio is mainly playing recorded Kirtans.

How to Listen

There are various ways of listening to 24 Hour Kirtan Radio. The easiest way is to go to the home page of our website. If the stream does not automatically start, just click the play button. The same applies to the player on this page.

    A nice 128 mp3-stream! Maybe it’s possible to realise a 48kbps aac-stream as well? Such a stream consumes less bandwith, which makes it possible to listen to the station on a mobile phone.

    Haribol!

      If you’re using the TuneIn App it will automatically provide you with the best stream possible. We’re using 128k because on iTunes this is the minimum in order to be listed as a radio station and most of our listeners are streaming us via iTunes.

      • Martin says:

        We’re blessed iTunes lists this channel. The TuneIn-app plays the stream nicely, but only lists one stream, 128 mp3. That’s perfect on wifi, but on a cellular network it uses to much bandwidth. A second, smaller bandwidth aac-stream would be great. It’s just a wish 🙂

        Hare Krishna!

      Since a couple of month we also offer a 64 kbps MP3 stream. All streams are listed on this page http://icecast.24hourkirtan.fm:8000/. The player on our website as well as TuneIn is now also aware of both of our streams, i.e. 128 and 64 kbps, so you should have less problems when listening on the go. My personal experience is that it works fine on a good Edge connection.

    Hari bol! I have for some years been suggesting a caravan of chanting to go around the beltway in Washington D.C. Recently, this was suggested to both NYC and D.C. Occupy. (Years before, I chanted the mahamantram three times around the White House to bind the bogus energy within, while being part of the anti-nuclear vigil across the street in Lafayette Park). Am presently staying on the westbank of New Orleans assisting n anarchist friend who was beaten up by police for protesting the unnecessary demolition of the public housing. Feel free to make contact with me at CraigStehr@pamho.net. The D.C. beltway action still needs to be performed, y’all. HARE KRISHNA

    Martin, it is possible to make a stream on Shoutcast, it is not so hard – you can also make your own. See: http://www.shoutcast.com/BroadcastNow
    I myself tried it – this works. You can also set lower bitrate. You just have to download necessary music (or even video streams), and put that into one folder for server. Server must always be online, so lower bitrate and higher speed of line will allow more users and less gaps during play.
    Actually what I’ld like to advice to do – to allow users to form a playlist.
    Just like on any fm radio – you call to radio station and say: “please, play some music of George Harrison, his My Sweet Lord” etc. Or, if we all use internet – then it is better if server allows all of us to go to server and set which tracks we would like to play next…
    Of course this can be done manually – make own playlists, only for my computer. But if hundreds and thousands devotees come to one website and rate all kinds of music – then playlist will become better, and quality of music will grow, and nectar from 24 kirtan fm will increase.
    Martin, as for listing on iTunes inet radio stations list – if station is good – it will be included. But of course for me it is also a good news to it in iTunes. though iTunes is buggy. You know Steve Jobs used to come to ISKCON Temple, so probably that’s why his iTunes included Hare Krishna station (this might mean Steve Jobs/Apple has some sukriti).
    As for me – I like also RKC radio – http://www.radiokrishna.com/, and there is also Utah Krishna radio. Butthey seem to have smaller archieve and no new music (just my oppinion). I think these all Krishna stations must unite into one big station. Then it should become 34 Hour Video Kirtan (now we have youtube, just it requires some people to choose best video kirtans to make 24 video kirtan Internet TV). Devotees may have financial and other diffiulties so they can’t come to all those kirtans personally, so they should get this sadhu-sangha in internet – Krishna radio, Krishna videos/TV etc.
