KDAT Among Stations Devastated on April Fools Day
April Fool's Day was no joke here at KDAT and our sister stations, and unfortunately, we're still dealing with it.
Monday morning, things started to go south when the in-studio computer system refused to respond to commands. When closed, the program wouldn't reopen. The nightmare had begun.
Within a short period of time, we would also lose our live streaming capabilities online and our other three stations (KHAK, KRNA, and i107.1 went down one by one). We were able to play music off two other computers in the studio and then, suddenly, that music began to scramble on the air. (*Note: The live stream is again live.) What the... It would be quite some time before we finally were able to start playing music again.
That's where we are this morning, with us able to play music but do little else. Needless to say, we continue to work feverishly to resurrect all these problems.
Thank you for your patience and understanding as we continue to work through what's the largest number of simultaneous issues I've seen in more than 30 years in this business.
