 Listen to Smooth Jazz Music On The Internet radio station

We now have our own Smooth Jazz radio station that broadcasts live 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days of the year. It combines well established artists with some up-and-coming ones, it mixes some new tracks and some favourites. No talk, just good music 24/7.  You will need to register to listen but this takes a minute and is free.  You can also subscribe to a VIP package which delivers the music ad-free and helps support the station and the artists. Go to Smooth Jazz 905.com.

Hear what Peter White and Slim Man say about the radio station.

We have been providing this internet radio station for over 5 years. The previous copyright arrangements for small broadcasters have not been continued in a deal done between a major internet broadcaster and the Copyright Board. This means that if the Live 365 network was to continue, it would have to pay royalties at a huge rate, not based on the size of the stations and this would have to be passed onto the thousands of small internet stations. Live 365 is closing down at the end of January 2016. This is a huge pity as the artists will no longer receive the royalties that they presently get from the small broadcasters. For us it is a hobby to spread the great music. We have been paying licensing fees and royalties for those 5 years.  We will be looking at other options but for now they all appear prohibitive as we do not get one cent in revenue, just the enjoyment of sharing this great music with the world.  Thank you to all those listeners who have rated the station a favourite. We know there have been listeners from around the world.  We will continue with our on-air radio programs and will continue to upload them to this site.
