We have updated our website, improving some speed, functionality as well as adding a few new features.

Features added:
Now shows when a song was Quick Played.
Hover over "Quick Played" and "Requested" badges of requested song to see who requested it.

Album Info - You can now see info on an album as well as the band lineup for that album. (Still adding info so most albums are not populated with this info but the function is there.)

Display Name - This feature displays the band's name with the accents, strange characters, etc. (Display name for albums and songs coming soon.)

Please let me know if you find any issues or if you have any album/lineup info to add for any albums.

Thank you...

I just completed the daunting task of renaming some of the bands and then displaying them with the display name field. Although many may not even notice this, It does make it a lot nicer on my end when adding the artist links in Facebook and Twitter which are great outlets to get the station out there... so yeah. Check...

Hey Tom, the album information is awesome.  Thanks for taking the time to gather and input it all.

I haven't had a chance to check the Requested hover mode, but just QP'd two songs and will try it soon.

Hover mode doesn't show all information like my name when on the Forum page.  The home page works well.

So, I changed up the "Albums" page a little. I thought that it looked a little crowded having the lineup next to the album so I moved it down. It looks a lot cleaner.. what do you guys think?
