Live365 was an Internet radio broadcasting and listening network where users were able to create their own online radio stations, or choose to listen to thousands of human curated stations created by people from around the globe. Online radio stations on the Live365 network were created and managed by music and talk enthusiasts, including both hobbyists and professional broadcasters. Live365 also had many well established AM and FM stations that utilized the Live365 broadcasting platform to simulcast their terrestrial radio streams via the Live365 distribution network. The Live365 network also featured radio stations from well-known artists such as Johnny Cash, David Byrne, Pat Metheny, Jethro Tull, Frank Zappa, and more.
On January 31, 2016, Live365 shut down following new royalty rates from the Copyright Royalty Board which disseminates small webcasters, which led to Live365 laid off most of its employees and vacated office. The shut down of Live365 also affected terrestrial AM and FM stations using Live365, causing them to disperse to other live streams. R I P http://www.forbes.com/sites/hughmcintyr ... 8fb47866c5
