Internet radio: Classic Blues Radio

We are coming down to the last week of Internet radio. Next Monday is the last day, before the big fees hit. I think it is probably too late to save things. However, if you haven't called your representative or senator PLEASE DO IT NOW!!!!! Don't let the corporations take over Internet radio like they have taken over the Am and Fm bands.

Now some of the big corporate bigwigs have tried to dirty the water, claiming that the little independent stations, and the small NPR stations that broadcast on the net are big corporations stealing money from poor starving artists. This is incredibly laughable. Clear channel and other big media giants who control your Am and FM dial, will be the only ones able to afford to broadcast on the Internet after July 15th, and don't think for a moment that this isn't intentional. Granted they will pay higher fees as well, but they also will have LESS COMPETITION. They also can offset fees by CHARGING YOU TO LISTEN TO THEIR CRAP ON THE INTERNET. Think about it. Major league sports charge you to listen to their games on the Internet. Rush Limbaugh, Coast to Coast Am charge people to listen to their shows. However, the bulk of Internet radio IS FREE!!!!!!!!! The majority of Internet broadcasters are people like YOU AND ME!!!!!!

Internet radio is only a small part of the bigger problem of corporate takeover of everything from politics, media, music, religion, science, and education. It is almost as if Regan, Bush, Clinton, and Bush (W), have turned back the clock to the gilded age. Welcome to 1890 America!

So anyway please give a listen to Classic blues radio. DJ Ron from Ashbury Park NJ brings you some great blues. just click on this link, and then click on the yellow circle with the speaker on it, and enjoy some of the last free blues on the Internet.
