BlackLight Radio Loses Music License

Gene Avatar

Hi, this is Gene Savage, owner of BlackLight Radio. We’ve streamed the 80s greatest hits around the clock, around the world since 2010, and we have always been listener supported.

For those of you who follow us on Facebook, you already knew that we were $15 short this month in covering our licensing fees.

After trying twice to draft our PayPal account and coming up empty-handed, LoudCity canceled our account with them Sunday. Without Loud City’s protection, we are unable to legally stream any music over the web.
Therefore, effective immediately, the music on BlackLight Radio has been silenced.

We are working with LoudCity in hopes of coming to an agreement to reinstate our blanket license, but have not yet been able to restore our coverage.

If you would like to donate to pay our licensing fees, please click the PayPal donate button on our webpage at If we are unable to return, we will refund any donations made from this point forward. If we ARE able to return, every penny will be used to keep the music streaming on BlackLight Radio.

We love the 80s. We think we have one of the best 80s music libraries on or off the web. You’ve told us you feel the same. We want to be able to share the music with you again, soon.

Again, if you would like to contribute, go to and click “donate” on the right side of the page.

Thanks for listening to BlackLight Radio over the past two years… hopefully we’ll soon be back and with you for years to come.
