Default You can help save internet radio!!

If you live in a dark cave all day, like me, with only a few T3's to the internet you probably rely on two things to keep you from going crazy! One is rctech.net (of course) and the other is streaming music from the internet. If we sit back and do nothing, legislation will be passed on 5/21/02 requiring all internet radio stations to pay $.14 per song per listener to the recording industry. Guess what... if that happens, no more internet radio because those guys aren't making any money now.

OK, so now you're pissed off about this like me! Do something about it! Check out http://www.saveinternetradio.org/ and use their letter templates to inform your elected officials. They are the only ones that can help us and the internet radio stations.

Just for the record, I have nothing to do with any streaming media station. I listen to psychedelic trance music, hence the nick "psycho." Yeah, try finding that broadcast anywhere but internet radio. If the stations that I listen to don't exist any more, I'm screwed since most cd shops have never even heard of psychedelic trance. Anyways, I'll get off the soapbox.

Please help out if you can.

Cool! Hopefully it will help if enough people do the same.

I primarily listen to two stations since they are the most reliable and have 112K or 128K streams. They are

Philosomatika http://205.188.234.65:8006

and

Goablaze http://goablaze.org:8304

Goablaze gets full during the day, so you may have to try connecting a few times. Just point Winamp or whatever your favoite mp3 player is to these urls.
