Default BC web based Radio

Just kinda thinking. I was on AF tonight and they have a web based radio station, essentially its just a library of MP3'* that play over a server like any other web based radio site (streaming)

Think its worth it to fire up a BC radio site, get members to send a library of songs, all genres to someone with some knowledge and a big azz server could do this?

How cool would it be to surf, read and post on BC with some fine music playin?

Any comments? or am I crazy

Yes, yer crazy, but it'd still be a good idea. Probably not my kinda music, but the rest of y'all seem to know and/or like the same stuff.

RIAA doesnt have a say in this anymore

Think of www.somafm.com or www.shoutcast.com or www.di.fm but have a direct link to streaming music

To get over the copyright laws, we can sing our own songs and then send them in to the server...? I bet you the growth rate would slow down!
