Indie Web Radio is dead - Long live Indie Web Radio!

Live365's farewell message
Live365, a major innovator of internet radio, independent webcasting and music streaming, passed away early Sunday, the victim of changing royalty rules that smashed its business model and the probably-not-coincidental loss of its financial backing.

Like many of its member broadcasters, we at Birch Street Radio are trying hard to carry on. In our case, we've moved to another platform, Radionomy, where our future depends on our ability to build a big enough audience to justify commercial sponsorship. Which means, our future depends on LISTENERS.

If you enjoy musical variety, then please support independent webcasters like us who strive to present programming that you can't find on corporate radio.

We hope you enjoy our particular blend of rock, alternative, folk and other styles by bands and singer-songwriters, established and unsigned, from The '60s to Right Now -- and will tune in often to Birch Street Radio.

And -- like Live365 in its final message -- we encourage you to sample the many other indie broadcasters and their labors of love on the big old World Wide Web. It's where music of ALL kinds plays on!
