Radio enthusiast Jerry Gaule operates two free audio networks, offering them to other outlets that would like to carry the content. He envisions these appealing to noncoms, LPFMs, non-profits and Internet stations.
They are “Classic Car Gold Radio,” featuring oldies and hits from 1954 to 1979; and “Country Lovin’ Radio.” Both are offered in mono streaming or MP3 format. Stations need a subaudible tone decoder if they wish to cut away to local ID (25 Hz is used for network cutaway, 35 Hz for network rejoin). Gaule says he participates in BMI, ASCAP, SESAC and SoundExchange, and pays all necessary fees.
