So jorn told me that SomaFM stopped broadcasting today. Killed by the RIAA. SomaFM had cool and special webcasts like BeatBlender and GrooveSalad. Internet Radio is dying at the moment and the RIAA also managed to destroy AudioGalaxy. By listening to broadcasts such as SomaFM and by downloading music and listening to it, I learned about new and cool music. Which I would actually buy if I liked it. And I sure bought a lot of CDs after hearing some of it via the Internet. And I'm pretty sure a lot of other people also did this (in fact, there was a study saying that users of file sharing networks started buying more CDs, see this page).
