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

In a sense though I think your 'heart' is in the right place Tyler, I 
think the Loopers FB page serves the communities needs for something like 
this and there are several wonderful related groups some of us are in like 
ImprovFriday, Internet Musicians: Post totalist minimalist, Out of Tune 
Radio and oTher New Music resources in FB land.  I know its not same as 
streaming but it is active posted content that supports this list.

My two cents, others may differ.

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.
