deadcast presents the wesley willis broadcast!
is back and better than ever fully powered with DSL, the stream
is now 100% live and supported at the deadcast computer bunker.
To celebratethe return of deadcast and internet broadcasting
freedom we have decided to do a wesley willis event for "however
long it takes". The legendary willis is a true free speech
advocate and his music has inspired countless others to perform
on the fringe of sanity.
Is truly DEAD!!!

radiodeadbear.com and its
deadcast network of webcasted
radio is off the air. We got shutdown by the same folks

The RIAA and FCC have made webcasting an extremely complicated
endeavor so most 3rd party streaming hosts are very strict due
to the recent napster public awareness. So until I find a more
reliable host or gain a little bandwidth myself, The station

interesting thing here, I think at least is we have this free
exchange of ideas and information out here on the web, but we
still have managed to drag those old 1950ish record industry
types and government goons like the FCC into this new fresh
medium. That seems to me like the eventual breakdown of the
real freedom of the Internet will begin when we allow those
who refuse change and are comfortable with the old ways.
