During the night I had a hard time sleeping. I started thinking about the time it is going to take uploading the MP3s, putting them into a playlist order, and above all PAYING for it on top of it all. A while back I had a sponsor for 13thTrack.com Halloween Radio. I don't now. A while back I was selling a decent amount of CDs there. I don't now. So other than the love of the music, why would I want to put those broadcasts back online at my expense?
I've found that most of the emails I receive are wanting something. Few are thanking me for having the site. "Hey, what the heck (swear word removed)! What happened to the broadcast! This sucks!" is what I tend to get from the listening public. This does not make me feel warm and fuzzy.
My buddy Jay Moores took my Pumpkinland CDs, Fleshrot and our DARK RIDE CD and made cool flash broadcasts out of them. Even though these make my hosting $ go up I feel better spending the money there at not towards building Live365's empire. I've received the OK from one Halloween music artist and plan to ask more if they'll let me stream their music.
I've been advised NOT to set-up the ole PayPal send-me-some-money donation link. I was told it sends the wrong message. I feel like the public service is great, but what about a little help from the listeners?
If anyone is reading this that cares, what do you all think?
