We would like to invite you to our new Real Public Radio Network's
public beta release. We believe you could greatly benefit by becoming
a member and using the network to promote your shows, find new content
and connect with people who create and use all types of audio content.
Please see our press release (below) and visit us online at
It's geared toward folks like you. It's a non profit, but it allows
you to simply and easily upload your shows and license it using
creative commons (or standard copyright) and then assign a value for
folks to pay you (or, make it free, it's up to you).
If you took A-Info, iTunes and Audible and put them all together into
a non profit company that supported music, news and views programming,
well, that would be RPRN.ORG.
It's worth checking out and, maybe, even telling your friends about.
We hope to see you there.
