Music Tampa Bay Music Streaming is evolving from an experimental learn-as-you-go prototype for a local radio station program format, to a fairly stable and somewhat
unique listening platform in cyber space. Geared first for conventional computer users, new media is springing up all around as a new wireless internet is being mined to serve as program distribution venues all around the globe. Bandwidth limitations restrict the present model to about 4 dozen listeners at any given time, though virtually unlimited expansion is only a matter of buying a larger chunk of the world wide web, at roughly a couple of bucks per listener per month. Add to that new royalty payment obligations that are expected to be hammered out in courts and Congress in by early 2009, plus ISP, web hosting, domain registration, software and hardware investments, CD and live event ticket purchases, and this "hobby" is taking on a considerable overhead, still without one dime of revenue coming in from an as yet nearly invisible audience. It has been apparent from the outset that the development of a revenue stream will eventually be required to achieve sustainability for future operations.
