I for one enjoy listning to stations from other city's, it gives you a wide array of music to listen to. Now these greedy-ass actors screwed everything up. .What do you think?

I've been reading the problem was our friends at the RIAA (you know, "let's attack everything digital cause we're too stupid to come up with our own ideas") thinking that they weren't getting THEIR fare share for the music that was broadcast over the Internet.
Forget the fact that you're getting that much more exposure and that many more people are HEARING your stuff... I know I've been buying MANY more UK bands since I've been listening to streaming audio from London. (which was done in part to be able to boycott RIAA labels)

Actually, it is the OPPOSITE of the RIAA problem.
The RIAA doesn't mind RADIO STATIONS on the net, they just don't like song trading.
The problem is the actors' unions: SAG (Screen Actor's Guild) and AFTRA (American Federation of Television and Radio Artists). They work out a deal where actors get paid every time their commercials are aired. They now claim that if it airs on the radio and is simulcast on the net, that it is two playings. Commercial advertisers don't want to pay twice -- How much business will an LA car dealer get from a listener in Milwaukee?
The solution is to edit the commercials on the net and/or insert special internet ones.
Well, SOMEONE had to screw this up for us. Next Thanksgiving, be sure to give thanks to the almighty dollar.
