“Hey, our stuff should look cool AND sound cool,” is part of Dr. Boogie’s philosophy.

You may wonder what equipment it takes to run an internet radio station. Well, trust us it does NOT require everything you are about to see. Dr. Boogie just likes having stuff whether we NEED it or not. Mostly it’s “not.” In many cases the B100.fm Studio is filled with “not necessary” hard and soft ware. But that’s part of the FUN that we consider so important. Obviously we aren’t doing this to make money so costs don’t matter. Except that we don’t have much money so we are often forced to buy used, pull it out of trashcans and/or steal it from one of the many radio stations that fired us.

In this tour you will see the actual equipment that transmits the Bitchin’ Music and Fun that Bobby’s B-100 is hoping it will eventually become famous for.

Holy Crap That's LOUD
The OPTIMOD “crunches” all the audio leaving the studio. This is part of why we say “What RADIO Sounded Like.” The settings attempt to duplicate Top 40 Radio.
