East Village Radio Shuts Down After 11 Years.

It’s with a heavy heart I bring you news, directly from FACT Mag, that the infamous Internet Radio station East Village Radio will be closing its doors. The licensing deals it was able to procure meant that as it got bigger, broadcasting became more and more expensive. The shuttering of this institution reminds us all the stupefyingly archaic state of copyright & record licensing in this country and why new & innovative ways to get the music to the people will be impossible if they attempt to go legit without serious artistic co-opting by corporate interests. Not much info is known now, but I’ll update this page when I learn more.
