Taintradio.org is back!  After a nine-or-so months period of dormancy and reorganization, the intrepid band of independent producers have pressed onward with the same mission as before:  independent and unstructured programming, no suits, hired guns and managers, presented by an international group of passionate music mavens dedicated to the music they play.

Taint recognized that its previous audience -- eight plus years of proof and one Internet Radio Station of the Year award -- enjoyed the music, and its goal is to continue in exactly the same direction, and still without ads, commercial sponsorship, and the usual flotsam and jetsam of terrestrial radio.

Taintradio.org has returned to its rightful place as one of the great listening spots on the web and everyone at Taint Radio is hopeful that it will get the same support as before.  Tell your friends about taintradio.org. Check us out now!! (One Man's Jazz as always will still be available at www.onemansjazz.ca, weekly, with a new show heard on taintradio.org Thursday at 9pm ET and  repeated Monday 4 am ET.
