[Altrok] New Adds...Listen For Free...Or Not.

Firstly, the important stuff:

Altrok Radio is at http://www.altrokradio.com

Please remember to tune in whenever you can - every hour you listen turns into more visibility for the station; we show up higher in search listings, and such like that.  And if you'd like to help us keep the stream running, check out the advertisers if they appeal to you; your interest actually helps fund us.

Now then, to be clear: Altrok Radio is free to listen to, and will be for as long as I can manage it.

But if you'd like to listen without advertising (we'll interrupt occasionally to tell you what's coming up on the station) there's a VIP program run by Live365.  When you're a VIP, you get access to the commercial-free version of the station, plus all the ads on their website go away.  Cost is actually pretty reasonable; the roughly-$15-every-three-months plan seems to be the most popular option.  Here's the link if you're interested:


And yes, we get a small kickback on that - $1.50 when you sign up, and a penny or so about every three hours you listen.  Not much, but we're a pretty lean operation; we'll take what we can get.

All that said, bet you're wondering what those new songs we've added are...
