The times are a changing . . .

So, WOXY went offline for a while, and came back. I'm listening right now, and they're announcing a switch to a "listener supported' model. They're keeping free streams, but they're low quality, 24k streams. For the high quality (128k), it's going to be $9.95/month.

I'm torn. I want to support WOXY - I listen to them for probably 4 to 8 hours a day, they're independent and I love their diverse playlists. Even the way they're selling this right now on their stream is to become vested, to join their community.

On the other hand, I can get a free stream (though who knows if 24k AAC is good enough . . .) , and there's plenty of Shoutcast out there . . .
