Tinsel and Tunes App
Many requests have come in for the return of our very own Tinsel and Tunes app. We will have a brand new app ready to go sometime in November. The app will be iPhone and iPad ready. As always, you can download a selection of other streaming apps from your smartphone’s app store. Then just click the “Mobile Stream” option under the “Listen” link in our navigation bar. Tinsel and Tunes will stream via any application that supports AAC+ and mp3PRO streams. This excludes Windows Media Player.
Tinsel & Tunes’ studio is located directly in the path of hurricane Sandy. The storm dubbed “Frankenstorm” according to twitter is being called by many, “the storm of the century.” The Tinsel & Tunes team has battened down the hatches, stocked up on plenty of egg nog and candy canes and have a stack of Christmas stories next to our roaring fire. We’re hoping that we do not lose power for our launch scheduled for midnight this Wednesday into Thursday. However, if the studio lights do go dark, we will kick off the broadcast as soon as possible. Please be sure to check out our Facebook page for updates during the storm.
One of our favorite guys, Matt Wertz, sat down to talk about the album he released in 2011 entitled “Snow Globe.” A number of the tracks off this CD have made it on the air at Tinsel & Tunes. One of our favorites is certainly “Christmas Just Does This To Me.” Watch below to hear Matt talking about the inspiration for the song and tune in to Tinsel & Tunes to hear choice selections from this awesome holiday album.
