Being in Korea and “outside the U.S.”, you’re prohibited from listening to radio stations when you go to their websites and click on links like “download live now” or “stream the live broadcast now.” The basic fact of it is that these greedy bastards — i.e., clearchannel communications for example — are not getting your advertising dollar ears assuming the listener is just placing extra bandwidth pressure on the website’s server, but not purchasing the products that the radio station is advertising.
Do Radio executives not understand branding or the fact that many of us abroad are transient and probably not staying here for a long term?!? Plus, the limited number of us place VERY LITTLE bandwidth strain on their servers. Sometimes it just floors me how greedy these executives are or rather how stupid they can be. Fortunately, smarter websites like this one http://www.live-radio.net/us.shtml realize this.
