New Royalty Fees force Live365 out of business
As of today, Live365 has closed it's doors. Epic Rock Radio has been broadcasting on Live365 for eleven years, and it's a terrible blow to us that they are gone. Unfortunately the reason that Live365 closed is because of the removal of the Small Webcaster's Settlement Act in the United States, which significantly increases the cost to stations such as Epic Rock Radio.
We ask that any listeners who feel that Epic Rock Radio is valuable to them to them to click here and visit our Patreon site and consider setting up a small monthly donation to the station to help keep us operational. Our monthly fees are going to triple in the coming months, and it will make it very hard for us to stay on the air. Some of you are donating upwards of $20 per month and for that we thank you sincerely. If you can't afford that much, every little bit helps! If all of our listeners donated just $1 per month, we would be able to easily afford the new royalty rates and stay on the air forever.
Our only alternative is to add commercials to the stream and advertising banners to the website, and we really, really don't want to do that. So please, if you can help, click here and donate to keep us alive and on the air.
My sincere thanks,
