ABOUT 95X ONLINE

What's the deal with song royalties?

To be fair, it's been quite awhile since we've updated this page and there have been many changes. We still have to pay song royalties to ASCAP, BMI and SoundExchange. The original service we started with in 2012 shut down June 14, 2019. To remain legal, we moved over to Live365. We pay them and they pay the PROS the song royalty fees for us. That expense is now $79 a month. We run this station for the love of music, not to make money. As such, there are no commercials or sponsors. But paying the song royalties, website hosting, stream hosting and buying all those songs adds up. If you feel the desire to help support our music, we invite you to make a small donation, which you can click on to the right of this page.

Is this a scam?

No, song royalties are for real. If you go to Wiki, you can read about it here. You'll want to scroll about halfway down the page to "Performance Royalties."

Are you for real?

Other things that have changed since I updated this page is I moved to Austin. So 95X is perfectly at home in the land of weirdness. You can still email me at michael@95xonline.com. I love music; love the station; and it's fun to search for new music to play for you.

PayPal...safe?

Yes. You don't have to be a PayPal member. You just need a credit or debit card. When you click on the "donate" button, it'll ask how much you want to donate and your info. I don't see your card info. I just get an email telling me that someone donated and that the money was put in my PayPal account. I use that account to pay the royalties.
