The .14 Cent Solution

New royalties proposed by the music industry threaten to kill independent Internet radio

*If only all radio stations had programs called Anal Magic. Or hosted game shows in which the host first gives young children money for answering easy questions, then tries to inveigle them to give it back to him. Or boasted DJs like Incorrect Music host Irwin Chusid, who truly appreciates songs like "Do It Like a Dog"--a riotous number by Dean Milan, who is rumored to be Tom Jones's alter ego. This New York station--which is available to the rest of the world over the Net--is a virtual smorgasbord of fringe sounds. It's the soundtrack for anyone who was ever beaten up in high school, was chided for unironically loving the Shaggs, or felt a certain affinity with comic-book characters. It's a place where the beautiful and the strange are inextricable from each other. It is, in short, quite possibly the best radio station in the country. --Maerz
