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!
The stations I’ve worked for in the past were all legit and above board. I once got asked to work for a pirate station in Scunthorpe (WLNG) in the late 1980s but also declined that offer.
When it comes to streaming a station I’ve only ever streamed music for me to listen to via a private internal shoutcast server (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 14 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!
