Seduction City -- Signing off

Thanks for supporting Seduction City for the last 4.5 years.

Unfortunately, due to the cost considerations we are discontinuing the station.

Though we developed a loyal listenership things never took off like I hoped. Probably my fault for never really finding an effective way to market it.

Farewell but not goodbye...

Sexing things up

You may have noticed the cheesy new image of the generic bikini-clad chick laying out on the yacht somewhere in Ibiza as the key image for Seduction City.

Well forgive me, but we're sexing thing up a little bit.

Ever hear the motto "sex sells?"

Well I hope it's true.  Because we need the heat.

I thought it would be enough to play simply the best possible chillout/downtempo music on The Web.  Apparently, that doesn't get it done. So I'm shamelessly taking things a step further. Random Internet image of some hot harlot laying on a yacht? Sure.

But y'know what? It kinda makes sense.

The root of all of the music of Seduction City is carnal at heart.  Even though I listen to it myself when I'm at work or driving or drafting my fantasy basketball team... it is in effect stuff that I put together for special alone time with my once-girlfriend-now-wife.

So why deny it any longer?

Some wear their hearts on their sleeve; Seduction City wears it's inspiration on it's blogspot header. Or something.


But despite the blatant sellout, we're still all about the music here. So please enjoy the new stuff I've put on this month, such as...

Going VIP Only for a while

A social experiment gone wrong?  Probably.  But Seduction City is going VIP-only for a little while.

It is a labor of love, this internet radio thing.  And like most such pursuits, it is not a moneymaker.  

Still, the expenses are adding up and meanwhile the money coming in is a trickle.

The math is pretty easy, really:  Monthly costs include royalty payments, bandwidth, storage space, music purchases, etc.  The only money that offsets this is if VIP listeners listen to the station or sign up for a membership through Seduction City.  Or listeners donate via Paypal, which to date nobody has done.

I have a day job, of course, which covers the costs but with listening hours dwindling Seduction City is at a crossroads of sorts. 

If you enjoy the station, please donate via Paypal or through a VIP membership to keep things going.

Thank you.
