[Launched] OOC Radio | Radio Station with a base on bubble!


Out of Character Radio

An internet radio station, built on Bubble!


Hey everyone!

I am so excited to announce that one of my own projects that is public facing is ready to show off on a showcase post!

@johnny and I had a random thought last Friday (Nov. 4th) to launch our own internet radio station. By Sunday, we had a MVP. Today, we have what is close to an end product. We want to do some content additions to the homepage, but overall, the design itself is done!

This was such a fun project, because it included me making my own plugin, custom API calls, setting up a VPS to run the back-end of the actual radio, and so much more.

From bubble, we successfully can:

  • Create, delete, and modify presenter accounts directly (Presenter accounts are how our live DJ’s connect to the server, hosted off site, but we built a management platform on Bubble so we don’t have to switch between 3 different sites to manage this.)

  • Setup Spotify’s search API to get the Spotify version of song’s playing, and thus able to allow users to click to play on spotify

  • Complete DJ Booking system, where our Presenters / DJs can book hour time slots


Listen Now

We still have a ways to go, and we are still working on it daily, but we are proud of the product so far!

Future plans:

  • Work on better optimizing the scheduling / booking system
  • Build out more content on the site, and more user interaction
  • Pages for songs, where users can comment on songs, like them, dislike them, etc…
  • Public profile pages

That was pretty fun I’ll agree.

For me, my favorite part was trying to connect all the different systems from the back-end so everything talked nicely to Bubble.

I forgot to mention, I also built a Discord bot that people can join into their server and have our bot play our radio in a voice channel! Also the bot sends a GET request to bubble to get the currently playing song. Building the bot was a lot of fun too!
