Customer Reviews
"...Information Station Specialists (The Radio Source) team [has] been exceptional in providing backup streaming replacing the normal KLEP Web stream after failures in power for our building, including our generator backup power after the extreme windstorm-driven wildfire catastrophe that burned about a third of the City.... The night before, while the wildfire was increasing in strength ..., I called the ISS After Hours Emergency Support Number and received a return call promptly.... My expectations have certainly been met. Thank you."

Leverage the Internet to reach your audience. 
An internet-based audio delivery service is a simple, accessible and affordable way to deliver timely, targeted audio directly to smartphones, PCs and any other connected device. All our streaming services support an unlimited number of simultaneous streams and no one is ever denied a connection during a sudden emergency or a special event. SSL Encryption is also an option.

StreamCASTs allow you to link your audience to a continuously repeating streamed program, such as the broadcast program of an information radio station or the play-by-play of a live event. We provide the network audio interface hardware that allows you to make the physical connection to the Internet.

StreamCASTs are generally accessed from a webpage where you present viewers a link to click. Of course you can also email or text that link directly to potential listeners in an emergency or anytime there is an update.

StreamCASTs may be full production, including music, and may be sponsored, making the service revenue-neutral – or even profitable – for you, the operator.  
Promote Ways Listeners Can Reach Your StreamCasts
Alexa Advisories QR Codes
With this option, the general public can listen to your StreamCASTs via Amazon’s Alexa attendant from any enabled smart-speaker device. This provides a new way to speak to listeners in the privacy and convenience of their homes, offices and even connected vehicles.

Try an Alexa demo by using the below phrase. (First, activate the demo by saying, "Alexa, enable 'Current Information.')

“Alexa, open current information for Radio Cupertino.”
In addition to Alexa access, with our StreamCAST Service, we include a QR Code that you can place on signage, posters or specialty items to promote the service.

Examples of Use 
StreamCASTing during California's Mosquito Fire
Based on the “16 simultaneous listeners” rating detailed on the chart below, roughly 4,000 people tuned to Foresthill Fire Protection District's streaming broadcasts (StreamCASTs) each of the first three days of the September 2022 “Mosquito Wildfire." At peak listening, the number of listeners climbed more than 5X higher than that (plus evacuating residents also listening on car radios).
