I would like to Thank Frederick for his generous donation to The Lounge Sound! It’s so very much appreciated! A little more to go and I can get the USA license.
Thanks again Frederick!
Hello all…. After some researching, my current yearly license I purchase(from SOCAN) is officially for listeners on Canadian soil only. For our listeners in the USA I need to purchase another license! I am taking steps towards purchasing a license at my own expense as my station is non profit or a hobby station. I will update you as I move forward to purchase the appropriate license. Thanks for all your patients!
Added a few Sara Gazarek tunes today. She has a great velvet voice.
Check her out here…
Hello everyone, I hope you all had some fantastic holidays!
Today I added some tracks to our playlist from a new up and coming Jazz artist named Peter Kavanaugh from his new album “Whisper Not”.
His sound is smooth & tight, the perfect music to relax to and have a Martini.
Morning all… I was excited to see over the last week or so a few of The Lounge Sound’s recent “Page Likes” & “Twitter Likes” are from some very COOL & SWINGING people!
I would like to thank all of them for their acknowledgement of the greatest Music ever written that is played on The Lounge Sound!
Here are a few of them…
* The official “Bobby Darin” Facebook Website as well as his twitter account.
* The one and only “Count Basie Orchestra”
* The very smooth Yanick Bovey
* The very talented Mr. Matt Goss
* The wonderful Sara Gazarek
* A great modern crooner Dominic Halpern
* The sultry Melissa Marquais
Thank you all for your support!

Just to let the listeners know.. we have stopped the old server and now runing only on the new server. For anyone still having issues connecting, once again new stream URL is http://streams.theloungesound.ca:8059 Or simply go to our website at www.theloungesound.ca We are also in iTunes , Windows media Guide and TuneIn.com
Please lets us know if you have any difficulty at all connecting…
Thanks and Have a great day!
So we switched over to new server last last week, all seems good on my side. However some listeners still connect to old server. It’s only listeners that use Windows Media Player or Winamp, not sure why. You can tell which server you are on, by simply disconnecting and reconnecting, each time you connect to the new server you will hear a welcome message. if you do not you are on old server. I will be cutting off this old server within the next 24 hours. If you have any doubt, please either message us here on Facebook or to email@example.com THANKS!
Hello all, I have had quite a few listeners tell me that they cannot find The Lounge Sound on iTunes any more. We are still there, however for some reason we are under “Golden Oldies” and then alphabetically we are not under “T” for The Lounge Sound, but rather under “L” I hope this helps a few people!?
Hey all, today we will be switching over our main streaming server. The old one will be left on for a couple weeks while everyone gets onto new one… there is nothing for you guys to do, just keep listening! Let me know if anything odd happens… this new server is host in a nice data center! No doubtingly there will be a few quirks, the most noticeable thing being the way the songs are mixed together…
Anyhow let me know if anything goes buzerk! lol
We added 20 songs from this album…
Thanks to all!
Sorry once again for the technical problems… I am changing providers very soon… Hopefully over the next few days…
We are continuing to have tech issues with out streaming provider! We will look into switching streaming providers….
Please accept my apologies… Its out of our hands…
Streaming provider move. Hello all our streaming provider moved data centers over the weekend which cause an extended outrage on Sunday. They say all is ok now but i am not seeing he same amount of listeners as before their move. Please let me know if you encounter any issues with the music.
We would like to wish one of our loyal listeners a big 84th Happy birthday today! We don’t know his name but here is an exert of the email i received about him….
“For my boss, whom is turning 84 years old today, is a loyal listener
of The Lounge Sound. All day long since gets up in the morning until
he goes to bed all he listen is the Lounge Sound. I love to watch him
swaying to the music while brushing his teeth. He is a very cool
fellow, good father and pillar to the community.”
Lets all have a drink to his great health and love of great music!
H A P P Y *** B I R T H D A Y !!!
Hello all, we had some weird website issues lately due to increased traffic.
You might have seen an error message about a database connection, this issue has been repaired and we should be good to go now!
Thanks for your patients & loyalty and Have a Great Martini DAY!
Over the last few days, we have added over 100 new tracks to the play list, each and every single one listened to(and drank to) by the staff here at The Lounge Sound to make sure they fall into the category of the unique Vegas style sound or the ever popular HAPPY HOUR genre!
Some of the newly added tracks are…..
Count Basie, Bobby Darin, Mel Torme, Quincy Jones and some of the more rarer tunes of Frank that are not regularly played anywhere!
Also some toe tapping tracks from Anita O’Day, Suzy Bogguss, Nick Waterhouse, Dinah Washington, Dean Martin and Desi Arnez
And some less known but just as talented tunes from, Julius La Rose, Lita Roza, Peter Cinotti, Tom Gaebel and David Berger.
Of course we had to through in some Harry Connick and Rene Ostead with yet a smigen more of Buble.
Enjoy, Hope you like them.
And as always my friends Have a Wonderful Martini Day!
Hello all, we had a 5 min power failure about 55 mins ago. The backup Server at another location took over just fine and all is great…. I will switch back to the primary server at some point today which will make a small interruption of only a few seconds, unless your on the web player, then you will simply have to refresh that window.
They do look similar….
Hello all, the province of Quebec had a major internet outage for about 60 mins today. This would have caused our radio stream to go up and down. Our backup source server did not take over properly, due to a power failure at the location of the backup server. Oh boy
This is a very rare event, its doubtful it will happen again, but to be extra safe we will work on a 3rd backup server system at a more remote location.
Thanks for your patients and understanding.
It’s time for a MARTINI NOW!
We would like to welcome all the listeners we have had recently from the UK and from Wight Island. The Lounge Sound received and email from a friend Holguin, Cuba today about a Lady broadcaster from a radio station on Wight Island whom found our station interesting and loved the music!

Not sure what caused the increase, but Thanks to all the loyal listeners and all the new ones too!
Now go make yourself a double Martini, The Weekend Has Arrived!
Hello all, we have a new Audio Player to listen to The Lounge Sound. It uses HTML5 so you will be able to listen for days on end with no freezing vs the Flash Player.
You can go here Listen Live Page and select the “New HTML5 Player” and off you go.
It would seem though that most of you use other players like Winamp or iTunes, but if you want to use a web player than this new HTML5 player is for you.
However, it does not work with Firefox(shame on your Mozilla), but Internet Explorer and Chrome work just fine!
Hello all just to let you know we put in place our backup radio server and were doing some testing this morning, you might have been disconnected once or twice for 30 seconds or so. All should be working fine now; If one server or network fails the other will take over seamlessly.
Thanks for your patients! And it’s Martini Friday!
We would like to apologize for the outage we had from May 23rd 2013, 3AM EST to May 23rd 2013, 8AM EST we had a network failure that was out of our control.
Our technical team is looking into creating a secondary service that will be on a different network that will take over if the primary goes down.
Thank you for your patients.
The Lounge Sound staff.
