Over at the ASMR Radio Facebook Group, Whispering Weaver made a somewhat sad announcement: ASMR Radio is closing down this month – just three months after its original launch. Its first official broadcast was on International ASMR Day – the 9th of April, 2012.
ASMR Radio offers live broadcasts, promoting ASMR whisper artists. In addition to its hosts, the service also offers the community a chance to submit their own content which, after review, may be aired online.
Whispering Weaver, otherwise known as The Weave, or Weave for short, cites poor maintenance as the main reason why the project is shutting down. In its three month lifespan it has suffered several technical issues. In the past, Weave said that donations received from the public would ensure that upgrades to the service could be applied. This will take place chiefly, it seems, in the next few weeks while ASMR Radio is offline. The service is moving to a new server, among other changes. A more reliable, stable service is promised with the future incarnation. There will also be a stronger focus on community-submitted content.
So if all goes well, ASMR Radio should be online again in July. Registered members will receive notification via email when everything is good to go. There will of course be progress updates on the ASMR Radio Facebook group, and probably on the other ASMR Facebook groups, and some select ASMR presences online, too.
