The Voice of the Spirits and Persephone's Personal Playlist MP3 stations are no more since MP3.com went bye-bye as of today. They had been bought by CNET which for some reason didn't buy their database of songs uploaded by various artists for their fans to download freely. The music library went offline -- I don't know if it still exists somewhere or if everything has been deleted.
Personally, I can't help but wonder what the point of buying the site was if you weren't also getting the music library & built-in fan/visitor-base. It seems a poor business decision to me, but then again I'm not a "corporate decision-maker" . . .
I don't know if the stations I'd created might be around in some form in the future, but for right now they're pushing up daisies.
RIP . . .
