GridStream Productions Celebrates Internet Radio Milestone
May 14, 2012 - GridStream Productions, the oldest existing MMORPG (massively multiplayer online role-playing game) internet radio station in the world, is celebrating their 10th birthday on May 19th, bringing back some of the legends of GridStream who helped pioneer the concept of broadcasting from within a virtual world.
GridStream Productions (GSP) was founded in May 2002 by Anarchy Online celebrity Lan Tarryk Kozar, Justin Boco Devane, and others, and is still owned by some of the original staff and founders. The broadcasts are hosted from within the virtual world of Anarchy Online, an MMORPG by Funcom. Anarchy Online celebrated their own 10th birthday last year, and remains a popular free-to-play MMORPG, with a graphics update and other improvements planned for the near future.
GSP is run entirely nonprofit, by players for players of Anarchy Online, and works closely with Funcom and the Anarchy Online developers, hosting parties, large holiday celebrations and the anniversaries of Anarchy Online. GSP currently has twenty DJ's based all over the world, with different tastes in music providing a varied listening experience. GridStream has also done interviews, such as the exclusive they did with Nick Wheeler of The All American Rejects in connection with their in-game concert in Anarchy Online.
GridStream Productions is currently planning the first ever fan convention for Anarchy Online (http://ao-con.com). It will be taking place August 10-12, 2012 in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
The landmark birthday celebration will be taking place on May 19th with an enormous party inside the game of Anarchy Online. Listeners may tune in through GSP's website at http://www.gridstream.org.
