New in 2016

Those in the United States unfortunately are unable to listen to us. This is because the United States Copyright Royalty Board failed to renew the Small Webcaster Act of 2009, which allowed small webcasters like STAR1079.com and Easy108.net a royalty rate based on our revenue. The current royalty rate for 2016 would cost this station an estimated $1500 to $3300 per month. Much more than we could earn and not comparable with other royalties we pay. So because of the price put on U.S. listeners ears, we have had to block access. Feel free to sign the petition to congress.

We do continue to pay royalities to other organizations like PRS in the UK and SOCAN in Canada under Tariff 22.F, so if you are ever in those locations feel free to give us a listen as you are not blocked in those locations.

Missing Some 80s?

Every once and a while we get a request for a song that we don't have already ripped off the LP, 8-Track or cassette, which causes us to make a mad dash down to the 80s Vault so we can hook up the patch cables and get it ready to play for you. If you know of an 80s song that we aren't playing, but should, then send us an email to 'requests' AT star1079.com and we will get it prep'd for play.
