FUN WITH RADIO Alternative WWCD (CD101 @ 102.5)/COLUMBUS, OH has suspended its listen live online stream.
The heritage Alternative station has the following message posted on its website:
Due to the uncertainty over rights issues related to Internet streaming of radio broadcast programming, including demands for additional streaming fees for recorded music and radio commercials by BMI, ASCAP, SESAC, and The RMCL we’ve chosen to suspend streaming until all these issues are settled. We apologize for any inconvenience, and urge you to contact your congressional representative and ask them to get involved with the streaming issues and help find a solution. We will continue to explore all options and hope to resume streaming as soon as these issues are resolved. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
