KNZR Bakersfield no longer accessible
« on: 09:54:05 | 21 February, 2019 »
Hello. I haven't been able to access this station for weeks; tried using "Add A Station" but still cannot access KNZR 1560 in Bakersfield. Hope you can get it back into the lineup. Thanks.

I can listen to this station if I go to the KNZR website. I went to the iHeart website and it isn't available there. Sounds like you need to alert iHeartradio or go to the radio station website and send them an e-mail. The station also failed on my Google Home, but iHeart knew about the station.

Hope that helps.

I contacted KNZR. Here's their reply: "KNZR is still on the IHEARTRADIO APP".  This brings me back to requesting it be updated/readded to the list of radio stations on Grace Digital. Hope this is possible.

Grace uses
http://stream.abacast.net/playlist/alphabakersfield-knzrammp3-ibc1.m3u for its stream but that doesn't work on VLC

Hi Solo2,

Should I paste a different stream link in somewhere; if so, which link and where should I add it?

What is VLC?

The problem occurs on all these devices:

-- Receiva Radio app on my iPhone 4 tries to access, then displays "Error".
-- Allegro Radio displays "Connecting" and after a while "Retrying", then repeats.
-- Mondo seems to do nothing until I switch off, then says it could not open the station.
-- Mondo+ keeps trying to load but cannot.

Since I cannot access it on any of these devices, I assumed the station needs to be added somewhere. As mentioined, I tried using "Add A Station" on radios.receiva.com but that didn't help.

Appreciate your help very much. If you have any further tips, kindly let me know.

Thank you!

The stream provided by the radio station simply doesn't work (on multiple devices, as you've indicated).  Until and unless that station provides a stream that works, you won't be able to play it.  You already contacted the station, as Shortwave Dave properly suggested, and got a response that indicates that they're not especially interested in fixing the broken stream. 

It's possible that someone on this forum will be able to find a different stream that does work.  In the meantime, you may want to e-mail Grace Digital and request that Grace contact the radio station regarding the problem.  Perhaps Grace will get a more helpful response than you did.

Not sure if Grace uses the same database as Reciva, but Reciva also uses http://stream.abacast.net/playlist/alphabakersfield-knzrammp3-ibc1.m3u which does not play on my Reciva radio although https://radios.reciva.com/station/48683 indicates that the stream has passed the stream test.

KNZR changed their streaming company, resulting in a secure stream that most radios can not play.

Change the https to http in the link in the prior post ... but be in America when you try.

I'm in America and I tried that.  No cigar.

What did you get?
When trying from UK it plays a message to say that international streaming is not supported.

. . .  Perhaps Grace will get a more helpful response than you did.

Here is what Grace Digital advised:
"It looks like KNZR is using iheartradio for streaming now. So the App and the Allegro may have issues with it,
But on your Mondo and Mondo+ go to Iheartradio and search KNZR and there will be 2 listings/ one of the 2 will work on each of the Mondo models."

I'll try the Mondo and Mondo+ again tongiht. I had tried them before; I'lll see if I can find the second listing mentioned by Grace Digital.

@TuneNut   https://live.wostreaming.net/direct/alphacorporate-knzramaac-ibc4  and https://live.wostreaming.net/direct/alphacorporate-knzrammp3-ibc4 will play on your Mondo Plus when added to "my streams" at https://myradiosplus.gracedigital.com/  I have had no luck getting any of the streams mentioned here to play on Reciva;  leaving the "s" off of http didn't pan out for me.

With much less fuss, you should also be able to listen to the station by going to the iHeart menu on the Mondo Plus or app and choosing the 2nd listing for the station.
On the old Mondo, the 1st listing for the station works for me.
