Here over the next couple of weeks, you’ll notice some changes to The Colorado Sound.
As of today, The Colorado Sound Live365 no longer exists. Apparently one of the dominant reasons may have been due to an increase in royalty rates established late in 2015 by the Copyright Royalty Board, which sets streaming rates for Internet broadcasters.
According to a report in Forbes over the weekend, “Late in 2015, the Copyright Royalty Board handed down its decision about what internet radio services will need to pay per stream, and it apparently hurt Live365 so much that it can no longer afford for the rights to play music.”
Other changes include a new name, a new URL, and new imaging and branding along with news about upcoming 10th Anniversary events. …. AND .. I received an email from a brand new LPFM (low power FM) station going live in Denver this summer that they’d like to talk to me about airing the show. #fingerscrossed
As much as I’m the voice and face of this show, it is my wife Pattie who is the real driving force – the quiet heart of the show, and the band. As I write this morning, my wife lies in the bedroom, only days away from transitioning.
I know in advance I’m forgiven if I don’t publish this week … and I’ll be forgiven for the personal appearances I may not be able to make in the near future. Depending on how things develop over the next couple of days, I may not be producing a show this week or next.
That all said, I hope you’ll join me for a couple of incredible events planned for the next week or so. My attendance or not, withstanding.
