ending December 20, it was possible to set up an entirely free

requires registering, purchasing an MP3 license with recurring fees,
and becoming "authorized."

Version 1 Shoutcast software are still being listed on the Shoutcast
Station Directory but it remains unknown what changes are yet to come.

one or at the most two high power AM stations will be needed for
regional service, and these types of stations are already being crafted
under the name "Traveler's Information Stations," which eventually will

March 27, 2013 -- TUC RADIO OVERNIGHT is now a fixture on KDX
Worldround, presenting the radio programs of Maria Gilardin from 10 PM
to 10 AM CDT / 8 PM to 8AM PDT every Sunday night to Monday morning. TUC Radio was founded in 1992,
and these 13-years later discovered by Carl Blare, acting lord of
radio, and at once recognized for its importance as a dispatcher of
essential life critical information. While KDX has been focusing on
many societal problems, such as false religion, the medical mafia,
vacuous "main stream" news, criminal governments and corporations,
bandits in cop costumes, and the antilectual entertainment propaganda
of film and TV, TUC Radio looks beyond all that to issues effecting
the future of life itself, particularly nuclear and
electromagnetic radiations, genetic manipulation, and other mass
extinction flirtations in progress on a global scale. The radio
programs from TUC Radio are available free to all radio stations,
