Re: any interest in a Looper's Delight online radio station?

TMK, the first thing to be required would be having to pay for a web hosting site for the radio station unless someone on LD already has something like that? There's a large selection of such sites to choose from and with a range of fees, But please, no "big name" pop artists. Those artists get and have gotten *enough* exposure (and $$) as it is, and there might(?) also be copyrights / royalties issues hassles involved as well from entities such as RIAA, ASCAP, BMI, etc. Also, whoever has the contract / registration/ etc in their name would be the party (parties) held responsible if some issues like that ever arose. Just my semi-knowledgeable / TMK two cents. I have a few years of previous radio broadcast experience under my belt but not with online stations, (not yet, at least) so maybe the issues of copyright / royalties do not apply to indy online stations? I dunno? I've never looked into that nor had any previous online radio experiences. Just the "regular" airwaves which are supposed to be (haha) "ours" and under the "guidance" and control of Thee Almighty FCC, here in the good ol' US of A.

Hello! This would require a person skilled in radionomy.com or any of those online radio-stream programs. I could probably set it up myself. I would have to learn a little. My idea is an online radio station called LD Radio. It probably wouldn't be live broadcasting, but we would have a playlist. LD Radio would play songs from the Looper's Delight disks, from the Y 2 K 6 loop fest for LD 10th anniversary (even though that link is gone from the LD home page, Google it; you'll still find the LD 10th anniversary recordings), videos from the Livelooping Youtube channel converted to mp3 using a site like vidtomp3.com, samples from the Looper's Delight file library (which works, finally!), whatever anyone sends in, and artists that aren't even on Looper's Delight. Some songs by common names (Britney Spears, Cher, Kesha, Jason Derulo, DJ Wich) ... one listen, and you hear so many repeated (looped) sounds that you think they lost their minds! So we might throw in some pop music (as long as the pop songs we play have lots of looped samples), and indie musicians not on LD (bigger name ones such as
Imogen Heap, Morcheeba, Tim Exile, etc.) to lesser-known ones (Lizzie
Kazmierski, Asianglow, etc). Of course, all our Looper-delighters will be heard on there too; Per Boysen, Michael Peters, Andy Butler ... you name it, and it has loops (live or
not) in it, we'll play it!
