I regret to inform you that the era of free radio has come to an end. At least, one aspect of it. The RIAA has insisted that KUCI pay yet another fee to podcast the music we already broadcast under license. I feel that it is reprehensible to force already poor stations to pay yet another tribute just so you, the listening public, can hear music other than that which the likes of Clear Channel would shove into your ears. I do not blame KUCI for this situation, because I still believe we, and they, champion the cause of freeform radio. However, we cannot afford the possible loss of all channels of expression just to keep one channel afloat. Again, I'm sorry for the loss, in more ways than one.
You can thank these guys below for making this happen.
