June 26th. A quiet day in radio

A large number of Internet Radio broadcasters, including and are participating in a day of silence on Tuesday June 26th to help raise public awareness of the imminent threat to the continuation of Internet radio in the wake of recent raises in the royalty payments.

Sky's premium services will continue as normal.

You nearly had me there!

It's always nice to have friends in high places.

Today's Live show was broadcast at the same time as the Space Shuttle Atlantis was docking with the International Space Station.

I mentioned that it would be great if they were listening to the show up there. A little while later Rommie, one of our regular listeners in Germany posted the following picture on the forum.

Nice one Rommie. If only!

The Jimi King show gets relayed to the Space Shuttle?

The clock is still ticking

It's touching to hear of the efforts of many listeners to keep things alive. Many have donated money to the legal battle to keep Internet radio on the air too.

At this time webcasters have launched a federal appeal against the new charges. I understand however, that the appeal might not be heard until July 15th. The day that is now becoming universally known as "The day the music dies".
