Streaming Paradise?

Streaming Paradise?

As Iโ€™m sure many of you know Iโ€™m a pretty big music fan. Naturally I enjoy listening to music at work. Often my best option is to choose streaming Internet Radio from stations like Radio Paradise, Chronix Aggression โš ๏ธ (link now 404 ๐Ÿ˜• - Jan/24) or KEXP depending on my mood. It is a wonderful service that has introduced me to numerous musical Artists I wouldnโ€™t otherwise have likely heard. Tragically the abundance of great streaming radio sites is being threatened by greed for money. The majority of streaming radio sites are without commercials and depend largely on listeners donations to stay on the air. The U.S. Copyright Royalty Board (CRB) has just issued a decision on the royalty rates that webcasters have to pay to record labels for the period 2006-2010. (See Wired News coverage HERE.) For the love of music sign the petition! For more information read Bill (from radioparadiseโ€™s blog) here! โš ๏ธ (404 link removed - Jan/24)

Maybe it is some strange brain thing going on, butโ€ฆ I always think my car runs much smoother after getting an oil change; which it got today. It is all about regular scheduled maintenance!
