Big Screen, Small Screen, GreatGold Now Fits Them All
TO MAKE THE GREATGOLD WEBSITE FRIENDLY to ALL users, we’ve remade the behind the scenes design so the pages you see will more easily conform to the size of the screen you view them in. That’s what’s called in the industry, constructing pages so they are “Responsive” to the size of the viewing screen. The newer technology we are using to construct our new pages makes being “Responsive” possible.
WE APPRECIATE EVERYONE who has stopped in to visit the original version of our website. Thank you very much. However, even though you liked our design, we’ve made some changes in how the site is constructed to make the site more, completely, User Friendly. In the old version we used a good deal of “tables” in the behind the scenes makeup of each of the pages. That makes for a good looking website, but, it’s not User Friendly to the huge number of people who go to websites with their cellphones and other mobile devices with a screen much smaller than a desktop personal computer monitor.
So, when you go to our new pages with smartphones, laptops, pads, pods, tablets, or your office or home desktop computer, you’ll be able to see and read everything. That’s because the words, photos and illustrations will adapt to your screen, no matter what size it may be.
YOU’LL STILL BE ABLE TO ENJOY LISTENING to the GreatGold.fm audio stream, as before, because there are no changes to our streaming server or the streaming process, but, you may notice a few cosmetic changes. The cosmetic changes are designed to enhance your User Experience. The music isn’t changed.
We’re still playing the finest Classic Hits in our mix of Classic Rock, Popular Oldies, Motown, Blues and Soul tunes from the 1950s, 60s, 70s, 80s and 1990s. We’re doing it the same way, so, you needn’t worry. The facelift to our site and GreatGold player interface are only on the outside.
Thousands of people in the United States and Canada, as well as nearly 100 other countries, have tuned in since we began streaming our special mix in 2008. Many of them have listened regularly through our website, online directories, and using software on their computers. Still others hear us in their desktop pc, laptops, tablets and mobile devices through Apps that have included us in their listings. That will continue, however, now you’re able to access our complete website content and audio players directly from our website on all kinds of devices as well. You can experience it all, no matter what size your viewing screen. Enjoy your favorite tunes anywhere, anyhow, anytime.
GREATGOLD is GreatGold.fm, ClassicHitOldies.com, GreatGoldHits.com and GreatGoldMusic.com. No matter which you choose in your browser, you'll always get GreatGold. We play mostly Classic Hits from the 1950s, 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s and the best of the 2000s. Sometimes you'll hear a song in the Rock category, or Pop, Blues, Motown, Disco, Soul, Country-Pop, Soft Rock, Jazz, Funk, Comedy, male and female singers, boy bands, girl bands, and once in awhile you may hear an outstanding independent artist.
The GreatGold Classic Hits Mix consists of, generally, Top 40 hits from the past, and, occasionally, songs that should have been. We play the Best from More Than 60 years of The Greatest Music from Life's Soundtrack. The finest of the last half of the 20th Century mixed in with gems from the 21st Century. No matter which Genre the Songs first fell into, or, which type of radio station first played them, if it's played here, it's a tune we consider to be, GREATGOLD, and, part of the History of Rock and Roll.
