Message to New Donators:
We'd like to welcome you and thank you for donating to CrystalOne. Please realize that without your donations free CrystalOne [Talk] would no longer exist because bandwidth costs are prohibitive. Now that CrystalOne [Premium] exists, we have bandwidth to keep the stations running for all the listeners. Thank you again, and continue enjoying CrystalOne.
Since 2003, when CrystalOne arose from the ashes of the failed radio ventures of others, our mission has simply been to be "The best goddamn radio station on the Internet". We accomplish this everyday by bringing the listeners great media, content, music, talk, and Howard Stern to everyone that doesn't have Howard Stern in their area.
Here at CrystalOne, our work is entirely supported by donations by cool people like you. We are all volunteers and we offer CrystalOne.net for free. If you can donate something, your support is appreciated. Plus, it's good karma, and great things will happen to you for the rest of your life. ;) Donations will continue to be used wisely, paying for the bandwidth used by all the listeners. Thank you.
Many of you probably still remember us streaming on Shoutcast 9 years ago with a small 30 slot server. We believe these new ways of content/media distribution are the future, and should be available for everyone around the world to enjoy. So we strive to bring you the best media content the world has to offer.
Although it may seem like it, CrystalOne.net is not a huge corporation with unlimited funds to buy millions of gigs of bandwidth in order to deliver The Howard Stern Show to all the millions of poor, disheveled Stern fans around the world who can't receive Howard Stern. Premium donators pay for upgrades to the site and for the rest of you to be able to listen to Howard Stern on the free station. Ask anyone, bandwidth costs a lot of $$$$. Because of Premium donators, we have enough bandwidth to keep the station running for all listeners.
All donations are strictly for bandwidth and not for content.
