Mary, that's a very good question.  My guess is that ACB radio, being
seen as a radio station, is under the same licenses as other radio
stations in that they can legally play what they want as listener
entertainment.  I'm sure Dan will correct me if I am wrong.  But, if
this is true, So why is a podcast any different?  It's likely all
connected with internet music downloading issues of which there have
been a few.  OK Dan, where have I gone wrong?

Dan,

I wonder how ACB Radio is getting away with broadcasting people's
versions 
of copyrighted material on ACB Radio Cafe, where blind musicians play
and 
sing anything, even music that is obviously copyrighted. also, how do
ACB 
Radio's broadcasters get away with playing selections from their albums?

Any insight on this?
