One of Internet radio’s biggest libraries of HITS and ROCK CLASSICS from the late 70s through the 90s... 24/7 AD-FREE and always free to you! It’s the music YOU remember.... on the station that NEVER FORGOT! The award-winning PLANET ZEB!
Improved geostatistics reports are finally coming! They give us the chance to start a time-honored tradition of the CLASSIC (sounds better than “old”) PLANET ZEB! to report back to listeners the top listening areas from the past 30 days! For US listeners, we still can only report data by state... but one day soon, we hope to add city data to these reports TOO!
For FEBRUARY 2018:
Top 10 countries, by total listening hours (TLH):...
1. United States
3. United Kingdom
8. Luxembourg *rocks!*
10. Switzerland * not neutral! Also rocks!*
Top US states, by TLH
1. North Carolina
3. New York
CONGRATULATIONS if where you are is in these rankings... and if not, THANK YOU for your continued support- go out and recruit more friends and family to boost your position in the ratings by listening 24/7... to Planet Zeb!
This morning, what a PRIMO playlist... Power Station, Breakfast Club, Boston, OMD, the Stones... if you're not tuned in RIGHT NOW, you're missing.... your life in music! Come join us-- on the AD-FREE PLANET ZEB!
THERE'S AN APP FOR THAT. .
(disclaimer: it's in enterprise development status right now and hasn't been formally approved by the Apple or Android stores... but it WORKS! Further disclaimer: Zeb's a lawyer. Use at your own risk, including foreseeable or unforeseeable likelihood of your mobile device's spontaneous and violent emission of sparks, metal shrapnel, ninja death stars, etc.)
New PZ! shirts are *on the way* and we're chuffed about getting them here! In the meantime, our primary swag partner, Cafe Press, has been accommodating of our need for a new, special LIMITED EDITION coffee mug. These are Zeb's favorites, and he still has some from 12 years ago in active rotation in his collection (and the logos still look crisp and clear after all that washing!). This one features our "You Can Dance" logo along with a cool BLACK handle and inside for the first time in PZ! Swag history. Close-up of logo on right. Enjoy!
iTunes update for those who've asked about getting to PLANET ZEB! since Apple seized control of all stations they streamed (and want you to pay for them):
To add Planet Zeb! to your Mac or PC via iTunes: open iTunes. In the upper-left corner, choose Music. Then, from the navigation bar at the top of iTunes, choose Radio. Then, choose "File" from the menu bar and then "open stream." It'll ask you for a URL; enter this-- http://streaming.live365.com/a11813
Voila! Planet Zeb!'s ...coming through iTunes again! You can use a similar method on your mobile device, though we recommend the dedicated Live365 app in your phone's store (free!) for that. Once you're streaming in iTunes, by the way, you can simply grab and hold with the left mouse button and drag the link to your vertical "recents" bar on the left side of the screen for easy starting up later.
Part of the reason we've been so active lately on your newsfeed (don't worry-- we'll shut up soon and get back to next week's programming!) is that we've been working on restarting/rebuilding our Cafe Press shop from the *old* PLANET ZEB! Weeeelll, come to find out this morning that we didn't need to rebuild it-- somehow it survived all these years with its original collection of swag, and NOW that we own "planetzeb.net" again, the stuff is all perfectly good again, too! 🤣
Keep an eye out for new and changing logos and new shirt designs in the near future. We're deleting old stuff and adding new stuff pretty regularly to get it in tip-top shape for the future!
For the first time since rising from the ashes of the old Live365 to the *new* one... SWAG!!! Here’s our new official station t-shirt and 3x5” mini-sticker!!!!
Test-run order of our supplier is now on its way to Zeb Central, and we need to reward a few of Zeb’s friends and confidantes for sticking with us and listening like crazy after we fired up the new station. But if you’re listening like crazy NOW and would be interested in turning your body or vehicle into a billboard for our FREE, NONPROFIT and AD-FREE exercise in musical joy for the masses, PLEASE SEND US A PRIVATE MESSAGE and say so! If there’s enough interest in on-air giveaways or something, we might just fire some o’those puppies up TOO!!! 😃
Every so often, we scour through the time-worn underbelly of the internet looking for evidence of our glory days, 2000-2008, when PLANET ZEB! was racking up a quarter-million listening hours *every month* from all over the world as (the old) Live365's top station. We share that here when we find 'em, such as our trade magazine feature when we won a record-setting THREE broadcaster awards in 2004, or a radio journalism class syllabus from 2002 that lists us as a "must listen" ...for good formatics, etc! And then sometimes, we come across something even better- a blog or discussion post we weren't aware of before... where someone says nice things about our AWESOME variety of tracks that goes way WAY beyond anything that any other station WE know would even dare try to play. And they compliment us to their friends. A happy listener somewhere who grooved on one of our tunes is a whole lot more meaningful than radio people recognizing us. And you'd have to know radio people, like Zeb does (and is), to understand the profundity of that remark.
Found this one tonight, from 2006. Wish we had some way of contacting these folks and laying a brand new PLANET ZEB! t-shirt on them 12 years after the fact as proof that karma rewards the kind (chuckle). But whomever you are, we hope the years have been good to you. AND WE'RE BACK, so we hope you find us again. And we'll let your words speak for themselves to our NEW GLOBAL AUDIENCE of rock-pop radio lovers who want a BETTER VARIETY of the music YOU remember....
FROM THE STATION THAT NEVER FORGOT!
