Internet Radio Day of Silence

I often listen to internet radio (such as di.fm), but most stations are about to die because of new high royalty rates.

So they are silent(ish) for a day in protest. Have a listen.

I believe it just becomes uneconomic to run. They could give up, go to subscription only (priced to suit the royalties), or choose some more radical option ... ?

Riots are the answer.


Boy let me tell you what:
I bet you didn't know it, but I'm a fiddle player too.
And if you'd care to take a dare, I'll make a bet with you.

Riots? You want to create a riot?

Let me get my pitchfork and torch.
