Off the Air

After one year, Oneeyedhog is off the air. I want to thank all our listeners across the USA , Canada, and Europe who have tuned in on a regular basis. Unfortunately, we were unable to build a significant audience where it mattered - locally. The cost of staying on air exceeded the revenue from advertising. The government passed legislation in January that more or less doubled the music licensing fees. We do not begrudge the artists their royalties. However, there are too many middlemen administering the royalty stream resulting in the fees we paid being reduced significantly before they were converted to artist payments. If the music licensing costs come down in the near future, we will be back.
