Just a wee bit of exaggeration, but honestly, folks, I’m so giddy about this great new release of Chavah, the best darn Messianic radio on the web.
I stayed up to 2:00am working on a very cool feature for Chavah, and I’m happy to announce the feature is now working and deployed – woot!
But Judah, what is this amazing new feature, you ask in desperation, sheer astonishment, and simple awe of my programming skills?
Community song request: you request a song, artist, or album, and Chavah will play that song for everyone listening to Chavah.
Check it out, boichik:
- Launch Chavah
- Click on the “Request a song” link:
- Chavah asks which song you’re looking for:
- Start typing the name of a song, artist, or album. Chavah, sweet as she is, will fill in the blanks for you.
Here I started typing “hope”, and Chavah suggested “David’s Hope”, “Yeshua Hope of Israel”, “Precious Hope”, “Hope of Glory”, and a few other famous Messianic tunes:
- Click which song you want. In this case, I told Chavah I wanted to hear Roman & Alaina’s “Bless G-d” song:
- Click the giant “Request this song” link.
Bam! Chavah is instantly playing your desired tune for Messiah; not only for you, but for everyone listening to Chavah.
If that weren’t enough, Chavah is intelligent about this whole process: if someone requests a song you’ve previously thumbed-down, she won’t force you to listen to it; she’ll discreetly honor your musical preferences, skipping that song request for you, while still playing it for others.
Additionally, Chavah won’t interrupt the song you’re currently listening to. She’ll patiently wait for your song to finish before playing song requests from others in the Messianic community.
Fine blog readers, Chavah is the best darn Messianic radio on the web. If you haven’t tried it out, now’s the time, dear Messianic blog reader! It’s a totally free service, 100% open source, doesn’t require registration or other nonsense, works on Mac and PC, and it’s got a massive library of over 2000 tunes for Messiah streaming; to hear every song, you’d have to listen to Chavah for a week straight without sleeping. And we’re adding fresh music continually! So what are you waiting for? Go to Chavah and be uplifted by the streaming Messianic tunes for the Lord.
