Here's the letter I got from Blogtalkradio the other day:
" Hello SOA RADIO,
We want to let you know about some important upcoming changes to our free host services. You're a valued member of our community and we want to be sure you understand the changes in advance, and have time to plan for any adjustments to your show.

Be able to conduct only one, 30-minute show per day

These changes will enable us to support the audio broadcasting needs of our rapidly growing community, while continuing to improve our host services and technology.

Much like that letter that NING's CEO sent us a few months ago which made us migrate over here to SocialGo.
We have had a plan in store for a while.
Remember in 2009, when you could hear DEE JAY GREENGUY and the S.O.A. Extended family on YING YANG TWINS RADIO.
That program the Ying Yang Twins sent me to broadcast with, in 192 bit sound quality (which is much higher quality then the 64 bit sound blogtalk broadcasts wit) I still have.
I still got that program. That Phone # we was using to host the S.O.A. Radio show on Ying Yang Twins Radio (this phone line: 1-215-764-6373 remember?)
Yeah, we still got that phone line too. The Ying Yang Twins aint put no money on it, the sponcers like Domino's Pizza, Chaquita Banana, and Subway aint been payin lately either.
So we not gonna pay the Blogtalkradio ransom money, much like how we didn't negociate with the NING CEO.
So this is what we plan on doing:
We will buy the music player that "draftlight.net" is selling called, minicaster.
We might use the blogtalkradio show phone line for the 30 minutes, if we have to take multiple phone calls to a show segment, in association with the 1-215-764-6373 line and the minicaster.
The fact that they are removing all the songs, and only allowing 3 songs to be saved is too much for S.O.A. Radio to continue doing shows on that 64 bit low quality broadcast.
Returning to the 192 bit MP3 sound:
Hosted by Kwin MD THIS IS Y DJ GREENGUY IS THAT GUY!
STILL S.O.A. Radio!
FROM THE YING YANG TWIN RADIO STATION WE BROADCASTED IN HD 192 Bit Sound Quality with DK IKO AND THEM!
COMING BACK to 192 bit Sound Quality coming soon to HD on www.thesoaz.com
