Here's the deal with the radio station:

This is something I've wanted to do for a long time, and I will probably continue to pay for at least the basic plan even if only a few people listen to the station with any regularity.

Judging by the total hours of listen-time in the past thirty days (12), I infer that most of you aren't going to listen to just music for long periods of time. Many people have voiced to me that their only real interest in my project would lie in live broadcasts. Under my current payment plan, live broadcasting is not an option.

If enough of you will listen to the station, I can pay about five dollars extra a month to have a 10-listener cap on live broadcasting. If many of you tune in and want me to continue to do the live broadcasts, I can upgrade to a 25-dollar-a-month plan that will boost me to 30 live listeners. It'd be willing to pay that much if I knew people would listen and enjoy.

For now, I have about seventy megabites of songs looping on the station continuously. I plan on updating at least a good portion of the playlist on a weekly basis. If the station seems like it's stagnating, let me know.
