To Support Old Christian Radio
As Old Christian
Radio's audience continues to grow, so does its expenses.
1. Current Listener Statistics
2. Old Christian Radio Mission Statement.
Christian Radio's two major expenses are: Bandwidth and Royalties.
for music licensing and royalties (revised on January 20, 2016)...
1. Live 365 takes care of the ASCAP, BMI, and
SESAC licensing and reporting (this will change after January 31, 2016.)
(Their royalty fees are added to my monthly bandwidth bill.)
LISTENERS PLEASE NOTE: On March 2, 2007... The US
Copyright Royalty Board made been some recent changes in
the copyright law on how performance royalties are calculated. (The new model
they are proposing under "Statutory License" will make it too
expensive for Old Christian Radio to operate as a "music" station.)
The only way around this situation is to go the "Direct License"
route. [Many of your larger web stations and networks (I-Heart, Spotify,
Pandora, Apple, and etc.) have made their own direct licensing deals with the
respective artists and labels just to stay in business.]
of June 1, 2007... Old Christian Radio has decided to go the "direct
licensing" route. OCR is limiting its airplay ONLY to the respective artists, musicians, and labels
that I have "direct licenses" with (airplay permission letters.) OCR will continue to pay "songwriter fees" to
ASCAP, BMI, and SESAC (either directly or through a service provider.)
FYI: All webcasters must pay
(ASCAP, BMI, SESAC) and performance royalties (Soundexchange), regardless of their
status, unless they opt for "direct licensing."
(Non-profit, Non-Commercial 501(c)(3) "airwave" radio stations (like Family Radio) are EXEMPT from all those
requirements. If they webcast their radio stations, they pay a greatly reduced rate to
Soundexchange while maintaining their ASCAP, BMI, and SESAC royalty exemptions.)
