Thank you, and good night: Live365 is signing off


There's been no further word from Live365 since the Jan. 15 email to its broadcasters announcing that it's closing:
"January 31, 2016 is the last day that Live365's streaming servers and website will be maintained and supported."
So will all of its streams, including ours, suddenly go silent at midnight California time on Sunday night? Or earlier? Or will the remaining Live365 employees, if any, simply let go and leave it to their internet/server providers to pull the plug? We don't know.

In any event, it's sad to see the venerable webcasting service, running since 1999, end with a whimper. Birch Street Radio has been broadcasting there since 1999, and it's been a lot of fun.

But - we move on. We've built a new home at Radionomy, and we're improving it every day. Our Marvelous Mixture of Music is sounding good there, if we do say so ourselves.

The challenge now is to see if we can build a big enough audience in the next several months to remain on Radionomy, which covers licensing/royalty payments but requires certain listenership levels because it's advertising-supported.

So we ask for your support -- not your money, just your ears! If you enjoy our particular selection of rock/alternative/folk-rock/indie/Americana/whatever music, please tune in often. And let us know what you like about it, and what you think would improve it. Thanks for listening!
