Today, I have launched my two internet radio stations and since I'm also a person with hearing loss who desperately misses and NEEDS music in my life, I'm writing the first review!
I'm in my kitchen and I've pulled up HearMusicAgain.org on my laptop which is sitting on the counter. My laptop is connected to my favorite little Bose speaker the Sound Link Mini which is a little gem that boosts bass sounds nicely and gives me a satisfying sound.
Of course, headphones could give me the ultimate listening experience, but I like the freedom of moving around my house without being connected to something, and allows me to share the music with my family. Since it's all picked for it's clarity, they're loving it too. We had a ball with the sharp, clear Christmas music over the holidays.
There are 2 stations to choose from. When I started the project, I tried to squeeze it all together into one, but I realized Judy Garland's Over the Rainbow wasn't mixing with the Grateful Dead somehow.
So, station 1 WHMA, Hear Music Again is Soft Rock, Oldies (some are VERY old and I will explain why in my next post) Jazz, Classical and Authentic Country while station 2 WHRA, Hear Rock Again gives you Rock, Blues, Funk and Soul.
It's really fun to switch from one station to the other.
I don't want to do anything else! I could make another pie I suppose. It's been so long since I've heard these wonderful songs!
This isn't just mood music. It's a hearing experience! To us with bad hearing, we're used to dealing with noisy sound but here, you will hear song after song after song 24/7 WAY better than any other radio presentation. Also perfect for Seniors!
Back to my pie making........without exaggeration, I've made over 20 apple pies in the last 4 months.
For people with hearing loss, sound comes to us differently. For people who heard music for a good amount of their lives and then have lost that ability, the Hear Music Again stations are for you!
