is that you get a message (in your SHOUT box) from IndieMusicPeople telling you that a
certain Station has added one of your songs. Click on IndieMusicPeople and
you'll see your masterpiece in the Station list, sometimes with glowing
comments attached (While you're there, maybe leave a thank you with your URL in
the link box).
day will come when you think "I'd like to start a Station, looks like fun!"
Once you've clicked on
"Create New Station" in your administration area, you'll need to make some
decisions. Do you want this to be a playlist of :-

INTERESTED? So let's do
Think up a name for your
Station - add a brief description and perhaps a picture and some HTML, flashy
Then start to find songs.
It's so easy just click on the 'add' cross + and choose a Station from your
list (if you have more than one) Fill in comments if you want..and
that's it. Keep going back to your Station and you'll find
comments, and links start to appear. You may even find your Station
in the Top Stations list and it will also be in the Station charts.
