Software-defined radios connected to streaming server slots, so geeks outside Brisbane could listen to 4KQ’s over-the-air 693 feed rather than via the iHeart stream, I’m guessing. Wouldn’t be many of those (at least publicised - most publicised ones are typically focused on shortwave, particularly DRM shortwave) but it’d be greater than zero.

A Blank Page at 4kq.com.au is not helpful. They should of put news of the shutdown and a link to SEN.com.au instead

you would have thought the URL would be intellectual property included in the sale, and SEN could redirect it accordingly? But according to WHOIS, the domain name is still with ARN.

Not the full bulletin. See my request on the comments of the Youtube link.

What’s the reviews on this? Did Murray do justice to the important task? Did the program team organise the right content for him to broadcast?

I found it fitting as he did nights at 4KQ for years in the late 90’s/early 00’s

Why a link from ARN to SEN? They sold the station, it’s now up to SEN to have their own website. If anything they should have a link to 97.3 or their other stations. 4KQ is now dead and buried.

and was a regular fill-in right to the end. The music was mostly goodbye songs.
