Click and Make Corporate America Foot the Bill!
------Hey, click HardRadio's link once in awhile and and pop around to visit a few of their sponsors - that's what keeps the music 24/7 and Commercial Free. Check out CNN and ABC, too - not only for more detailed news stories, but your clicks support them (because they can then show lots of page-hits to their advertisers and charge them more money for ads) and encourage them to continue to provide free, live feeds. Let's click a few times, and make Corporate America pay for all our commercial-free goodies =) Oh - and the Perseus Project is (c) PBS and Tufts University and a lot of other people, and Jeffrey's Japanese-English Dictionary is also copyrighted to it's respective creators, so don't nick their stuff since it is free or they'll get annoyed and we won't have it no more. =P
