We will no longer be streaming via Live365 as of 04 MAY 2013. We have had too much trouble with them and are paying too much money for very little in return. Of course you can still listen to our stations for free, commercial-free, through any of the listen links on this station.

Hi Sirius... I used Live365 for years originally, but moved to the iTunes stream a while back. I note your words "commercial-free" though... but why are we hearing ads in the stream on certain days (today for example is VERY heavy with ads for places like GIECO, BUFFALO WILD WINGS, etc)

Commercials in the stream are something new that was implemented in recent days.
We are waiting for news from JERIC to learn more details about it.

JERIC's comment from couple of days ago goes:
Quote:
As far as why they are in there, with the exception of the donation meter being filled in April, that has not happened in many months and we have to pay the bills somehow. (...)
Right now I would consider this a testing phase. If people are filling the donation meter then I'm taking that as they don't want ads.

I love SST, but the ads are so annoying. I listen to internet radio to get away from the constant ads of terrestrial radio.

I understand that you need income to run the site. But that is what VIP memberships are for (I can't afford to be a full time member but I get a month long subscription on a regular basis) as well as website advertisements.

Please keep SST commercial free. I don't want to go elsewhere for my music but I can't stand the stupid commercials. Please go back to the way it was before SST was ruined.

Thank you for listening to my rant.

Maybe it's time to consider a nominal fee for membership, or levels of membership. Maybe you can join, listen, and chat for free, but a requesting-enabled membership would cost a once-in-a-lifetime fee of $5. The VIP memberships could keep as they are.

Of course, if this were to work, you might need to ask existent members to pony up, as well as new members.

Checking in here as I just started listening again after a few days of break. Instantly noticed the ads as they throw off the entire listening mood.

I've donated in the past to help, but if I hear commercial ads, good luck getting anything else out of me!

Hello,

In order to avoid having the same discussion in two threads, I invite you to post in this thread instead:

Ads or commercials streaming recently

I'll lock this thread. Thanks for your understanding!
