Voice of Bonne Bay
Julia Ann Walsh Heritage Centre

We broadcast the Voice of Bonne Bay
from the old cottage hospital in Norris Point (May 14 - 25).

The webcast was enabled for 8 days,
23 hours, 55 minutes and 15 seconds.

It should be stressed that we are webcasting
from a rural area - we try to ensure that dial up
listeners are supported so we use a highly compressed
mono audio stream. Some day we will have
rural "high speed" and we will bring you "high quality" stereo
- maybe video as well.

Note: Ten years later, in 2018 the official site of VOBB is: The Voice of Bonne Bay was webcast
- 7:30 am to 7:30 pm. Here's what you had to do
to listen in.

First you must have QuickTime player installed
on your computer - WIMP or REAL won't work.
If you hear music now, it is not the webcast,
but it means you already have QuickTime
installed on your computer.

If you have music playing,
go straight to step two : )
