A query emailed to us a couple weeks back:
Hey! Among the many thing I never expected to happen was to become the technical person for a fandom radio station. We are growing from a single fandom station to All Fandom All The Time. We are fan supported and make no money. Though one of the station owners pays the ASCAP license so we can play those tracks if needed.
I’m currently looking for more artists who are willing to give us permission to play their music on the station. No downloads and I’m not asking for freebie tracks – I’ve bought any tracks for new artists that I’ve reached out to. In the past I would have reached out to Harold (I knew him as HMS on Livejournal) to find willing artists but sadly he’s no longer with us.
Currently we have Tom Smith’s permission, Seanan McGuire, and Vicky & Tony. I can’t afford all of Tom’s stuff yet, and Creature Feature is out of print, but I’ve added any other tracks of theirs that I had. Would it be possible to get a hand through you to find willing artists?
The plan is to have a full artists reference page for anyone we have in the rotation. I just have to work out some sort of database on the back end.
Final caveat – the station started life as a Brony (My Little Pony) fan station. But we aren’t any more. And it’s adding filk as fast as I can get permission. (In between day job, injuries, family illness, etc. )
