The smooth jazz format of Samford University radio station WVSU FM 91.1 can now be heard online anywhere in the world. The 500-watt station and al.com have teamed to provide a continuous online stream of WVSU's broadcast.
The stream can be accessed through WVSU's website www.al.com/wvsu or through the Samford homepage at www.samford.edu/wvsu. It is accessible for dial-up internet connections.
"I am very excited to have WVSU's unique, smooth jazz programming available on the Internet," said station general manager Andy Parrish. "We have many listeners who say they listen to us at work, but can't pick us up at home, or vice-versa. Hopefully, this will fix that.
"This will also be a great way for Samford alumni outside Birmingham to re-connect with the University, as our Samford sports broadcasts and university features will also be carried online."
"We are extremely grateful to al.com for providing this opportunity to Samford and WVSU," said Parrish.
Al.com provided the necessary equipment and distributes WVSU worldwide.
