Kenny’s Site Crashes
Kenny Chesney’s internet radio station, No Shoes Radio, proved a little too popular with the service’s fans.
The service debuted on Aug. 6, and with more 50,000 computers tuning in for the show, the server temporarily crashed. It took more than an hour to broaden the access. Kenny was obviously pleased by the overwhelming volume of listeners, but added, “I hate that the server locked up . . . but at the same time, when you try something a lot of people tell you is crazy, in the back of your mind, you're kind of glad that there was so much demand. It's not about being right, but knowing that you're still in sync with the fans, because, well, the reason we do all this stuff is to try and get people as close to the music as I always wanted to be.” You can catch the service at noshoesradio.com.
