[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...
