KSDS apologizes about our stream being down for so long. The problem was on our end but we seem to have the situation handled. We are still tweaking it and will be looking now to get it fully secured moving foward. Thank you all for reaching out to let us know how much you missed it. It was reassuring to hear from so many people. We are grateful for your understanding and patience. Note- If you rely on Tune In as your platform you may still have difficulty connecting as they temporarily removed us (we did reach out to them to tell them it has been restored). If you rely on Tune In as your platform please use this direct streaming link in the meantime. We apologize for the inconvenience- https://ksds-ice.streamguys1.com/ksds.mp3
KSDS apologizes about our stream malfunctioning as of late. The problem is on our end. We are currently waiting on the City College IT department to help us out with some of the networking configuration for getting our new hard drive installed so that is the stream won’t be interrupted moving forward. We are hopeful we can get it resolved as soon as possible. We are grateful for your understanding and patience.
