Hey, have you ever thought of archiving recordings of your broadcasts someplace online like Mixcloud? Your playlists are full of wonderful material, but I can rarely catch the show live, and I would imagine I'm not alone!

I recently discussed that possibility with the Radio Fairfax station manager after a fan in France suggested that I post my programs on Youtube. As I pretty much guessed she would say, because I am using copyrighted material, my programs would be taken down very quickly. Paying the royalties through RIAA is so complicated and expensive to be rendered impossible. Radio Fairfax doesn't archive shows for the same reason. I chose this station because for a small annual membership fee (currently $26 a year), they take care of all of the royalty expenses stemming from my broadcasts. As a public access station they enjoy the same status as public radio in that regard. Thanks for the kind thought, though.
