ROCKLAND USA RADIO:
I've been streaming multiple music radio stations for 10 years via Live365.com. Genres include Pop Rock, Alt Rock, Classic Rock and Retro 80s
. I've been fortunate to win multiple awards from my work including Broadcaster of the Year, Best Pop Station and Best Web Site. I've always supported artists by paying my annual royalties.
WEBCAM SHOWS: For several years I streamed daily webcam shows via BlogTV.com, Stickam, and several other networks. Again, I was fortunate to have a loyal following who supported my work and help in promotions. The popular TV style game shows worked very well including Brainiac, Trivia Master and Red Line.
I've been developing websites since the early 90s growing through the raw HTML days to hacking up Wordpress and Joomla templates and php code. My current project at http://fairfax2015.com
is the most complicated involving creating its own social network, video broadcasting platform, online store, and live sports scoring systems.
PROGRAMMING: I began programming in the 80s using Basic and OS-9 on a TRS-80 Color Computer. From there I've dabbled in many languages settling for a while on MS Visual Basic and C++. In the 90s I made it into Windows Magazine with one of the Top 5 Email Utilities ... which led to a huge cease and desist from NBC in New York. It was an alphanumeric pager program that would receive commands via simple emails to send you stock quotes, weather alerts, news headlines, emails, and more ... for free. I have since switched to php and web development getting more and more into apps and extensions.
