Great Big Radio

Great Big Radio http://www.GreatBigRadio.com The Hits (And the Songs That Should've Been!) Welcome! Here it is. A radio station created by radio people who love radio.

Great Big Radio doesn't just play the hits, but all the great singles that didn't quite crack the top 20. So many great songs, it could only fit in one place: GREAT BIG RADIO! Call us: 601-600-ROCK Listen now: http://www.GreatBigRadio.com/

Mission: To give the world something to listen to while working on the web by providing hit (and not-so-hit) music radio that's fun, energetic and slightly off-center. Also to keep founder Howard Hoffman busy and off the streets.

THE PIGS KEEP TRYING TO SHUT US DOWN, MAN. Literally, there’s a potbelly pig in our neighborhood that keeps gnawing our cable. But we’re back on and still playing 1968 (and we fixed the album track feature at :50 of every hour) now through Wednesday.

The REAL Peter Tork (Official)

Sigh.

It is with beyond-heavy and broken hearts that we share the devastating news that our friend, mentor, teacher, and amazing soul, Peter Tork, has passed from this world. As we have mentioned in the past, the PTFB team is made up of Peter’s friends, family and colleagues – we ask for your kindness and understanding in allowing us to grieve this huge loss privately. This page will remain open for your use in sharing your thoughts with your fellow fans and hopefully helping you through your own grieving journey, however the team will not be available for some time as we start to mend our own hearts and calm our minds.

We want to thank each and every one of you for your love, dedication and support of our “boss.” Having you in our world has meant so very much to all of us. Please know that Peter was extremely appreciative of you, his Torkees, and one of his deepest joys was to be out in front of you, playing his music, and seeing you enjoy what he had to share. We send blessings and thoughts of comfort to you all, with much gratitude ~ptfb team

Well, here's the deal. Our software and databases have been rendered extinct, and will require a lot of money to upgrade. Furthermore, our monthly nut for royalties has been very cost-inefficient. With those two factors at play, we had no choice but to pull the plug - for now.

We're going to be moving to New York in several weeks anyway, and once we land there, we'll size things up to try to get GBR back on.

In the meantime, we've really enjoyed bringing Great Big Radio to you guys, and by your feedback, you really enjoyed having GBR done to you.

This isn't goodbye. It's later days. Keep following this page to get any updates.

Thanks, guys.

Hey, GBRers: I’ll be returning to the scene of the crime - Friday at 3-7 ET, I’ll be filling in for my old pal Jim Frey on the first rock station I ever worked for, WALL in Middletown, NY. So I won’t be offended if you don’t listen to GBR for those four hours. BUT THAT’S IT. Listen on the stream, or “Alexa, play W-A-L-L on TuneIn!”

04/22/2018

APPDATE: Finally...FINALLY, the new GBR App for iOS is now in the iTunes pipeline awaiting their review before it becomes available. It'll be Version 8.0.1 (7.0.4 is still up at the App Store). If the new version doesn't push on your iDevice automatically, we'll let you know when it's available. It's really got a lot of cool stuff and crap. We're kinda proud of it.

04/20/2018

APPDATE 4/20: Happy 4/20 by the way.
Small victory: We won back the name "Great Big Radio" from the App Store's dumpster. Now we can move on to the process of getting our new app compiled and submitted. Thanks for your patience. It will be worth the wait.

Good Morning everyone, my name is Sam Pitt singer-songwriter Rock Pop and it is possible to have an email to send my songs Demo . Thank you very much, Sam Pitt

Has Amazon put a stop to the funny Alexa snippets?
Just to bring it to your attention “Like a Rolling Stone” playing and “ skipping” all over the place especially after the first half.
It’s odd.... for the last couple of weeks, I was able to hear you on the TuneIn app, but not on the GBR app. Today, I can hear you on the GBR app but not on the TuneIn app!
Glad to hear you back. Alexa isn’t working yet, even when I ask for Great Big Radio On Tunein. Can’t find you. Not sure if Amazon doesn’t get the updated station lists or what...though you’d want to know. I can look it up in the Alexa app and tap to play and it plays through the Echo.
Welcome back sounds Awesome. Big shout out from Seguin Texas
So glad you're back, Howard. You've been missed. I can now get my daily GBR fix... Hooray!
So it’s been a couple of months. Any chance you’re starting to think about putting GBR back on the air?
