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

Online radio stations have different rules. I listen to sofloradio.com (a 
talk station) 
almost every day, and almost every day, Jorge Rodriguez, the most popular 
host on there, says offensive 
words (including the F word) without being bleeped. Being online, he can 
get away with it! So, no FCC 
on the online stations! But on the home page of loopers-delight.com, it 
clearly states that 
is a site for musicians working with loops of all kinds. Any person who 
listens to pop music would 
know that Jason Derulo and Britney Spears (or at least their producers) 
loop. And how much 
does radionomy.com (a host just for web-radio) cost?
