what happened to all the radio stations?

There used to be tons of great stations and now there are only a few decent ones. What happened? And were can I find some good net stations that mix up underground 70's 80's indie/post punk?

Its now a requirment for all internet radio stations to get licenses. 90 percent of the stations are operated without a license from the FCC. Without one, they can be shut down. The fees for a license, tho, is staggering. The RIAA wants the FCC to shut all stations down, the FCC aint listening(thank god).

Somethin like that.

Thanks for the links. You that about sums up the bands I'm in to. There used to be a great station that played all those bands plus a thousand more but I now I see what's happened. I'm too pissed to even complain properly so I'll just say goddammit.
