You Really Should Like Our Facebook Page!

I started this blog back in 2008, back when blogging was the "in" thing and while I will still post things more appropriate for a blog here I would like to invite everyone to like our page on Facebook.

Again, I'm not planning on abandoning this blog, I mean lets face it, me and this page have some history, I've just decided that it is more appropriate to focus on the social media platforms as opposed to posting links on those same platforms links to this page and besides the blog doesn't get the amount of hits that it used to back in our heyday.

So, please like our Facebook page, some big announcements are coming soon.

Indie Spotlight on Facebook

Record Lables Sue RADIONOMY Over DIY ‘Pirate’ Internet Radio

Earlier this year the royalties due to Sound Exchange for online radio broadcasting increased. Because we use Creative Commons (with a few exceptions where the music is directly licensed to the show) this increase didn't affect Indie Spotlight.

However because so many online radio stations stream mainstream music it was either pay up, shut down, or become a pirate. Because of the fines involved if you are caught pirating music, the overwhelming majority of independent online radio stations decided to shut down. Personally I can't say I blame them, if I were in the same situation I would have as well.

It's been no secret that I've never been a fan of how the majors do things, and that it was only a matter of time before they came after online radio. I've always wondered how it would happen.
As it turns out, they don't seem interested in going after broadcasters themselves, they are going after the sites that host them.

Yep, I'm an asshole

I've been sharing videos here on the blog, and I've neglected to mention that you might need to mute the awdio stream that I have embedded here.

Sorry about that.

February 2016 Update

Nothing new to report, just thought that I would toss this here in case anyone is still checking my blog to see what is going on with the show.

We're still on every Sunday night starting at 9 pm (eastern)

I'm much more active on FB than I am with blogging at this point, you can like our Facebook page for more current details.

Folks I'm gonna be honest, unless I have something on my mind that I want to sound out about, or something new or drastic to report I'm more than likely going to continue blogging about once a month or so.  I'll try to keep the posts brief but interesting.
