From my favorite radio station (the former Fabulous 570/690, now, unfortunately, my favorite internet radio station, www.martiniinthemorning.com):
SAVE Internet Radio!
On July 15th, new royalty rates, tripling current rates, will end Internet Radio as you know it today. Only large broadcast corporations will be able to afford these new rates - so the same people who have abandoned all by the most profitable formats (including ours) will gain control of not only the broadcast airwaves, but Internet streaming as well.
If these new rates go into effect, we will be forced out of business.
I hope something can be done to stop this. I already lost this great radio station once when Clear Channel sold the transmitter off to some Mexican company after they closed a loophole in the law allowing them to have one extra station if it transmitted from across the border. I guess Sinatra and his contemporaries (as well as contemporary recordings of their style of music) are not mainstream enough. But now even the internet broadcast of the greatest music ever recorded is threatened as well!
Oh, and listen to www.martiniinthemorning.com - it's awesome music!
