A New Way to Listen…

We at Radio Riel like to pay our dues when it comes to see­ing that the artists we play (and some­times the com­posers, though not so many of them are alive these days) get appro­pri­ate remu­ner­a­tion when we play their record­ings on the air.

As a result we have two sets of licens­es for our streams. For the rest of the world, out­side the US and Cana­da, we have inter­na­tion­al ter­ri­to­ry licens­es from PRS for Music and Phono­graph­ic Per­for­mance Lim­it­ed (PPL), based in the UK. For the US and Cana­da, we use an agency that, in return for an annu­al sub­scrip­tion, looks after pay­ing the appro­pri­ate col­lec­tion agen­cies like BMI, ASCAP, SESAC and SOCAN, along with Sound Exchange, on our behalf.

Unfor­tu­nate­ly our pre­vi­ous agency recent­ly, and with very lit­tle warn­ing, closed its doors, and we have had to find an alter­na­tive.

We’ve there­fore moved our stream licens­ing in the US and Cana­da to StreamLicensing.com, who pro­vide a ser­vice that is even more com­pre­hen­sive than our pre­vi­ous provider.

Unfor­tu­nate­ly the pro­ce­dure for lis­ten­ing to our streams via StreamLicensing.com is a lit­tle dif­fer­ent to what you have been used to. Click­ing the Lis­ten Now but­ton will take you to a spe­cial page with a big Play but­ton on it that launch­es an embed­ded Flash play­er (or you can click a small­er link that allows you to use the play­er of your choice instead).

Over the next while, we will be updat­ing our oth­er stream play links to reflect these changes.

If you want to use one of our streams on your prop­er­ty in-world and don’t know how to do it, drop us a line at info@radioriel.org telling us which stream(s) you have in mind and we’ll tell you what to do.
