Certain people in the Internet radio community reckoned we ran a pirate radio station & some people also reckon that I have done work for pirate stations in the past.
Nope completely wrong on all counts!
AFAIK the stations I’ve worked for were all legit and above board.
I once got asked to work for a pirate station in Scunthorpe in the late 1980s but also declined that offer.
When it comes to streaming a station I only ever streamed music for me to listen to via a private internal shoutcast server I never made it public.
(Which we no longer need because we’ve bought a Chromecast)
What really gets my back up on this subject is the fact that there are so many stations listed on various radio guide websites who have never owned a licence to stream.
Some of those stations have been going over 16 years. I won’t name names but you just know a pirate station on the Internet when you come across one.
No one it seems pulls them up about not having a licence for their music.
I am still streaming my music via
a private server Chromecast and I intend to carry on doing so.
Now piss off and find someone else to harass!
