Temporarily Off the Air

 

As of January 1st, 2016, NWOt Radio, and indeed thousands of other small webcasters will be silenced.

 

This is a result of new royalty rates put forth by the Copyright Royalty Board for 2016-2020. Within this rate schedule the Webcaster Settlement Act of 2009 (which allowed us small potato streamers to exist), was allowed to expire

 

Because of this, the wonderful folks at Live365 who hosted this stream for 7 years, and countless others for over 17, were put in a bind and had to make major shifts in their rates and policies - which in turn knocked us off the air.

 

I hope the powers that be will see their folly when they see they can no longer collect money from those who were priced out of existence. Till that time we'll continue to to search for a way to bring you our eclectic mix of classic rock, pop, punk, new wave and all sorts of other capriciously labeled tunes from the 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s and  beyond.

 

Head on over to the New World Otter Facebook Page, where if there is any news, you'll be notified.

 

Thank you listeners,

Ryan

Well, they were, till the royalty makers crushed the little guy.
