How Artists Get Paid:
How do artists get paid from the music played on this site?
- We pay fees to the industry groups ASCAP, BMI, and SESAC (who represent songwriters & publishers). These fees are distributed to songwriters & publishers.
- Additionally, Internet radio stations are subject to performance royalties, paid to SoundExchange. They represent performers and record companies. The New Orleans Radio Network participates in this licensing in addition to those mentioned above.
How can I support the New Orleans Radio Network above and beyond listening to your fabulous music and stations?
- Annual Sponsorships and Advertising is/are available for the New Orleans Radio Network and prices are very reasonable. Replace any of the ads on the site your own banner ad. Audio Ads can be done on a per station basis, or bundled to include all stations.
- Music Purchases throughout the site are available. If you purchase any music from a link on our site you will be helping the individual stations and the network, because we are refunded a portion of the purchases via affiliate program.
- Our stations are IP-Only. Donations are always welcome to continue bringing you the highest quality New Orleans music and defer the costs of running the stations and the network.
I love listening to your stations, and would like to help out financially, but am confused about how my money will be used?
- The New Orleans Radio Network provides this website, the streaming servers and the licenses that allow this music to be heard. There is an investment and operating costs associated to keeping the operation ongoing. There are links on each page of the site that allow for you to contribute to that cause.
- Additionally, each station is operated independently. The station owner programs the station, and incurs the cost of keeping it operational and in some cases, operating an independent website. So if your interest is to support an individual station, then there are links provided on the stations individual page, so that you can contact the station owner (DJ) directly or contribute to the station instead of the network.
Is New Orleans Network A Non-Profit Foundation?
- No. Contributions to New Orleans Radio Network are not tax-deductible. We are a for-profit business, and do not qualify for the 501(c)(3) status that a volunteer-run public FM station would.
- New Orleans Radio Netowrk can be a full-time job (at times!) for us, so it is run like any other business. We pay income taxes on all of our income, investing in equipment and services to keep the business ongoing.
