"I listen to a lot of radio on-line and I don't know of a station that's more committed to free software and open-source values than this little station... I listen to it in Santa Barbara and it's already one of my faves."

Thanks to Steve Eitelman in Virginia for pointing this out to us :)

CRB Postpones Deadline As Web Radio Marches In D.C.
May 2, 2007

The Copyright Royalty Board (CRB) has officially posted its ruling on Internet royalty rates in the Federal Register. However, the organization has pushed back the due date for royalty payments to kick in, from May 15 to July 15. The publication of this information also allows the 30 day period for appeals to officially begin. NPR is slated to file an appeal in this time frame.

The SaveNetRadio organization calls the decision "welcome news for webcasters...artists...and listeners," and notes that it will "spend the next 45 days educating Members of Congress and their staffs about the incredible diversity of programming Internet radio offers us all. We will set the ticking clock back 45 days and continue the fight to free Internet radio from these devastating fee increases."

Yesterday (May 1), SaveNetRadio led a march on Washington, D.C., as webcasters, musicians and label representatives met with members of Congress to discuss the Internet Radio Equality Act. Further actions in the nation's capital are set for today.

The issues remain the same:


KPUT: Ben DeJean, Hector DeJean, Steve Scholz & Glen Keenan


On Thursday nights from 10:00 to 10:30 PM, I usually play a set of comedy built on one or more themes. But starting this week, for the next 10 weeks, I will play episodes of the short-lived, little-loved sketch comedy radio show "KPUT", originally broadcast on KRUI in Iowa City. 

Comedy Playlist for "Ain't That Peculiar" 5/3/07 (10:00 to 10:30 PM)

From 10:30 to 11:00 PM, I play soul, funk and R&B from the 50s, 60s & 70s. From 9:00 to 10:00 PM, I play pop & rock from the 60s up 'til today, plus a few fun surprises--so be sure to tune in!


This Thursday, May 3rd, we will have a regular riot with some Lean, Clean, and Bluesy music

May 10th is reserved for local Iowa bands. I will be bringing in Eastern Iowa favorites, and hope to be interviewing multiple artists. Here is your chance to get heard on the radio. Submit a CD of your music, and I will play it for you (clean versions only, please).

Check out music by Bo Ramsey, Greg Brown, Raldo Schneider, Joe Price, Partick Hazell, Kevin Gordon, Bruce Wilson, The Jefferson County Green Band, The Vers, Brother Trucker, and many others making fine, fine music in our neck of the woods.
