It’s a low fi web site with a powerful purpose:

This is small web, consent driven, artist populated, non-commercial mechanism, attribution promoting, community radio for the fediverse. As with everything your mileage may vary but let’s try this out and hope we can discover some of the awesome talents that are on the fediverse.

We think there is a way to promote each other and co-exist in such an effort leaning a bit less on walled gardens even with blended license and attribution models since attribution and consent are paramount. Any original material from radio free fedi is CC-BY-NC-ND. Any merged or derivative pieces are presented as with permission for radio free fedi and attributed to the collaborators and we note the license and artist link for the original work if applicable. All music and words we play retain the license that shows on this page for each piece as per the artists’ wishes. All copyright materials we play have been consented by each artist for streaming only on radio free fedi.

Right now I am hearing an electric guitar rhythm upbeat --,Circuit Static - “Night Stalker Returns”

Next, is a funky remix that opened with a soft electronic beat over a kind of sports broadcast, now into some kind of moody song, the idea of love as having some kind of announcer overlay? Curious, interesting.

Minutes to Midnight - “Love Field”

What a cool idea…

I’m checking it out. Thanks!

Let me know what you find…er hear.

Also, always a favorite is Radio Garden I offer link distractions for free :wink:

Does any one know if it is down? I’ve tried two browsers, and both of them cannot reach the page, Chrome and Edge.

Sorry! It never helps when someone says,“It works for me” but… it does. It does help troubleshooting if you can describe exactly what happens or what you see. Are you getting a “not found” error or something else?

I’d be doubtful of Edge, Firefox is a better alt browser choice.

Javascript is required, and at the bottom it reads

Trouble accessing stream or seeing stream info? Player software varies, you might try another link or changing the stream link to http.

Also, there is a direct link you might try hear the music

The direct link works. Thank You cogdog. My chooses for browsers at work are Chrome or Edge. I’ll try a personal device later.
