Help Save Internet Radio Including WTMD's Web Stream

As you know from other posts, Internet radio is in grave danger of going dark. A recent decision by the Copyright Royalty Board would significantly raise the fees public radio stations pay for the rights to stream music. It's a very complicated issue. Please visit Tell Them Public Matters for more information on how you can let your voice be heard on this issue. Here is some more information previously posted.
NPR is currently trying to help Internet radio stay alive, but a July 15th Deadline Looms! Read the story in today's Washington Post.

Thanks for taking the time to read these sites and, if you are moved, for contacting your Representatives to let them know how you feel about this issue. Here is a list of Cosponsors for HR 2060 please check to see if your Congressperson is on the list, if not, please send them an email asking them to become a cosponsor.

Steve the GM
