“Streaming – What is it Good For? Absolutely Nothing”
From the rumor mill:
Renda Broadcasting's WSHH-FM (99.7) and WJAS-(1320) ceased their online broadcasting feature on January 1, 2009 "due to escalating royalty fees for online streaming broadcasts." WMNY-AM(1360) remains online. You might recall that Renda Broadcasting was among the first to pull music from the internet a number of years ago when the RIAA challenged whether there should be further royalties incurred for broadcasting over the net.
Way to drive using the rear-view mirror, guys.
And make sure to shut down your electricity when that bill gets too high, too.
