Internet gospel radio
... I love becoming a tune of Thy song
Dear listeners and fans of G-Radio
After 10 years of our, and we believe that also your radio, we are not happy to give you information that our broadcasting is close to the end. The aim of the radio was to bring joyful message of the Gospel through Christian songs. Our radio was entirely devoted to Christian domestic and foreign authors. We tried to give the room also to entirely new authors. As we did, it's your assessment.
Radio since its inception, worked on non-commercial basis, without advertising in broadcasting, and it has been financed by churchshot of radio owner and occasional donations from you - listeners.
The cost of radio during 10 years increased, in addition to the regular purchase of new titles to the radio, we have paid the fees for hosting, domains, streaming, servers and a substantial portion of monthly expenses were royalties paid to the Slovak collecting society of authors (Slovenský ochranný zväz autorský, abr. SOZA). Radio from its beginning to the end of 2008 year paid for SOZA amount 474 Euro with VAT per year, from 2008 until 09/31/2016 it was 573.60 Euro with VAT per year. Since 10/01/2016 SOZA terminated the contract with us on the grounds that they have the new price list, and if we want to continue to broadcast we must conclude with SOZA new license agreement. Under the new tariff, which can be found at web pages of the SOZA here, we should pay 1800 Eur with VAT per year. It is more than 300% increase in prices, which is already unbearable for us. For more than a month negotiations, we have failed with SOZA agree to any concessions also arguments that the aim of the radio is the support for minority music genre and the radio does not operate on a commercial basis did not help.
We believe that all fees that we paid for this period (over 5000 euro) get back to you - Christian authors. In case you need information about when you have played on the radio, we will provide you full assistance.
Thank you for your favor for almost 10 years.
