Donate to 70’s ClassicsDo you enjoy listening to 70’s Classics? We sincerely hope you do and you will continue to listen and spread the word to others to keep this music alive and well for future generations to enjoy. With the changes to internet radio like royalties, dedicated stream server and additional costs for time involved in putting this all together, this is no longer just a hobby and most broadcasters have given up and closed down there streams.
The 70’s Preservation Society has taken on these new challenges and we hope to continue to bring you the best music ever made for many years to come. However, the costs to do so have increased and we assume will continue to increase. As we grow and add more listeners and stream max levels our costs go up accordingly.
For these reasons, as well as in response to the many emails we have received concerning this matter… We have decided to offer our listeners the opportunity to help support this station and all the wonderful music and entertainment we make available to everyone streamed in 128bit for excellent sound quality.
To be clear, this is NOT something anyone should feel obligated to do and in no way is it required to listen to the music or additional entertainment we offer. We offer this simply for those who would like to offer financial support to something they enjoy listening to would like the feelings of helping to keep it on the air.
Any funds collected will be used for the following:
- Help or cover costs of main hosting account for the website including maintenance, bandwidth and design matters.
- Help or cover costs for stream server to included fees, additional stream seats as we grow.
- Help or cover costs to Sound Exchange for royalties to insure everyone involved is properly compensated as required.
- Help or cover costs for staff to compensate for time and efforts involved in bringing the show to the public.

Just before the holiday break 2015 the CRB (Copyright Royalty Board) handed down the decision on new royalty rates for all webcasters. Prior to this decision there was a special CONGRESSIONAL LAW titled the "Small Webcasters Agreement of 2009" or SWA which made these insanely expensive royatly fees affordable and kept innovative programmers and new emerging artists on the air. (The SWA expired on Jan, 1 2016 at midnight ) They are now being SHUT DOWN by the tens of thousands.. Nearly 100,000 small webcasters will go off the air without YOUR help!With this new ruling by the CRB there was NO provision for small webcasters and the prognosis is not good for about 100,000 United States small internet stations. The old rates under the Small Webcasters Agreement of 2009 (set by congress) were adequate, as long as you didn't make over $1.25 million a year and had less than 5 million listener hours monthly. These NEW rates, albeit lower, apply to everyone and there is NO provision for the small webcaster. These new rates are effective January 1 2016, but we can change this if we act NOW!Here's how this insane system works:
The new royalty rates apply to EVERY COMMERCIAL BROADCASTER at .0017 per performance. If you had 1000 listeners on at all times, each song would cost you $1.70 to play. If you play 15 songs an hour, the royalties alone are $25.50 an HOUR! That's $612.00 per DAY and $223,380.00 per year.
