Whither Cladrite Radio?

FURTHER UPDATE, Aug. 2017: Some folks are still finding this page (via Google and other search engines, no doubt), so we thought we’d update you once again. After just over a year and a half with Radionomy.com (having spent most of that time frustrated and unsatisfied), we are now with our third streaming provider and things are going quite swimmingly. We’re not experiencing the technical issues we faced with Radionomy, our stream sounds better than ever, and we (and the listeners we’ve heard from so far) are pleased as punch. Use the player above to give us a listen, or, even better, click on How to Listen on the left to check out the many and various options you have for listening to our toe-tapping tunes.

We’re lucky when we break even here at Cladrite Radio and the move to a new provider hasn’t been without its costs, so if you’d like to show your support for what what we do, you can follow the Support link on your left, too. Thanks!

Well, we here at Cladrite Radio have some lousy news to share.

Here in the US, the Copyright Royalty Board, the governing entity for establishing the sound recording royalty rates that are paid to copyright holders, has published new rates that are putting many streaming-music providers at risk. One of those is Live365, Cladrite Radio’s streaming provider, which has recently lost its primary investors (probably because of the increase in royalties) and has informed clients like Cladrite that the plug will be pulled on our stations before long, perhaps as soon as January 1st. (They shared this news with us today—nice of them to give us so much notice, yes?)

We’re working to find a new streaming provider for our station, and we encourage you to bookmark this website or follow us on FB for future announcements. We’re feeling a bit of despair over the whole situation, but we’ll keep trying to come up with a solution. We know our listeners love the toe-tapping tunes of the 1920s, ’30s and ’40s that we share with you, and we love playing them for you.

In the meantime, tune in now and listen while you can. The days—the hours, even—to enjoy our music grow short till we can figure out a solution.

In any case, this blog’s not going anywhere, so keep stopping by.
