The studio machine is a Linux Mint XFCE box running The BUTT connected via DSL to the Linode and Airtime. I've done a few Liquidsoap customizations to Airtime to fill in missing features (AutoDJ, saving incoming streams, etc) and will be doing more, possibly contributing them upstream if I can keep them clean and general enough.

Well it being a 100Watt station in a rural area, it's not likely anyone at all will be able to hear it.

But they do stream live on the internet: http://airtime.knyo.org:8040/128.m3u , and their calendar is here:
http://knyo.org/current-schedule.html  They've got some interesting local content on Friday nights (PST8PDT) and Sunday mornings and afternoons.
