Disradio

Hi

I'm not sure where to post this but I'm having problems with the radio... I was listening earlier but now I cannot. Am I the only one?

I was planning to make the announcement on the show tomorrow. We've discontinued DIS radio.

Dang I loved listening to that station on the weekends while I sat at my computer. It made me feel connected to other WDW lovers and to WDW itself. I will miss it very much and thank you for providing it to us all this time.

Oh No! I just found it recently! It was great while it lasted. Thanks for having provided it to us. Wish I would have found it sooner.

oh that's a shame - Thanks for running it though, it had some great music on it and got me through many long days at work! I'm going to miss that awesome Disneyland Paris anniversary song that used to come on over lunchtime.

Oh well, all good things...

I am sure that it costs a tremendous amount of money. Live365 does it right because they handle all of the licensing rights of the music (BMI/ASCAP) for the broadcaster. That causes this service to be very expensive and if there are a ton of listeners, the cost can be astronomical.

Thanks, Pete for keep it on as long as you have.

This was mentioned on the podcast before as a volunteer basis and I paid for a year's subscription then. BUT, I myself didn't renew [I couldn't remember when my year was up] and I'm sure the cost was just too much. I know Pete wouldn't have just pulled it without considering all options. He's an incredibly generous man.

The cost of running it just didn't make sense any more. I was personally paying nearly $10k a year to keep the station ad free and high quality. As was pointed out, playing music through Live365 requires payments to ASCAP and BMI (rightfully so) so that artists can be compensated for their work.

We have other projects we're investing in where I felt that money would go to better use.

Sorry to disappoint, but thanks for listening to it over the years! Trust me though, the money is being put to some very good use!!

Pete
