shutting down

It’s a sad day for Podcasters and podcast listeners who enjoyed the podsafe music from I got this email this morning:

It’s been over ten years since we started helping discover independent music on the ol’ interwebs. Things have changed a lot since then. Most of those changes have been good and some of them have been bad. Some changes are just bitter-sweet.

It’s with this bitter-sweetness that we are announcing today that will be discontinued as of July 15th, 2010.

The landscape of how music is discovered and delivered has changed drastically over the last decade and we are proud to have been a huge part of that change — first with and then with and beyond. Sadly, that landscape will not include anymore.

It looks like iLike will keep going on, but back in the day (2004) when I started podcasting, was one of my #1 sources for podsafe music to play in my podcast. I will miss them!
