Mikael Backstrom from Sweden recently wrote in our 'listen page' shout box to complain that "Expose is not soul music." King says: Mikael, you may be listening to the wrong station. We are "the #1 total R&B Experience," playing classic soul, pop, blues, and dance music.
Classic soul is about 90% of what we play. Expose is a dance/pop track. Take your pick.
If you personally have an extremely conservative definition about certain music, please listen to the limitless, homogeneous, boring, uncreative top 40 soul station choices from which you can choose.

The day of silence is a protest against higher royalty rates that will force the majority of online broadcasters to shut down when the new rates go into effect July 15, 2007.
Congress can pass the Internet Radio Equality Act, if enough attention is given to this issue, to correct the royalty increase that will put many of your favorite online webcasters out of business.
