|As you can imagine there are innumerable details and surprises at every turn with our current move. Rest assured that we are taking all precautions to keep the music flowing through the device of your choosing; radio, computer, mobile, etc., but we are having intermittent outages in both the on-air signal and the stream. If you're in a bind for some KSDS content remember, The Speakeasy has a lot of cool stuff that you may not have heard recently. Thanks for your patience during this time...and now back to the business at hand.
