All radio stations with an Internet audio stream have to compensate Sound Exchange, an organization under the US Copyright Office, for the right to stream commercial recordings. This money finds its way to musicians, by way of record labels. One of the regulations established by Sound Exchange is that stations cannot publish in advance details about streamed commercial recordings. Therefore, WCLV posts on the first business day following an "as played" log of commercial recordings we streamed complete with composer, work, artists, record label and number, plus time of airing and duration. The accuracy and detail of this information is unprecedented for WCLV. To identify music in real time, refer to the "On Air Now" box on the front page of the WCLV website or to car radios with Radio Data Systems (RDS). We continue to list in advance programs of live music and pre-recorded concerts.
