365 Radio Network - 10/24/15 - 5/11/15
This will be my only page referencing 365 Radio Network as I am keeping it marked with dates, start and endm and a description of what happened for legal reasons.
I was introduced to 365 Radio Network by a contract who's name will not be disclosed unless legal action takes place. The introduction was made that I was/am a shock jock, or to be correct in my interpretation, I do UNCENSORED radio. 100% uncensored, for online radio ONLY, listener discretion advised.
Podcast were sent to 365 Radio Network, and all my podcast from 2010 though 10/16/14 were fully available on davedarin.com. The owner and co-owner of 365 Radio Network liked and agreed to air my show on their networks which included fully posted links from davedarin.com to all 365 Radio Network to include:
Rock365, Indie365, Metal365, Xtreme365, Elite365, Ultimate365, WNDY, Full Impact, Highway Rock, Rock Invasion, Iron Waves, Wildhorses, Generation Mix.
I was never asked to provide the station with any alternative or censored format other than my 100% uncensored format. The show was provided to 365 Radio Network via Dropbox on the evening prior to airdate, or at worse by 10am Arizona time, to provide enough time for 365 Radio Network to preview or play the entire broadcast. Liner notes of who each shows guest(s) were and highlighted topics were also provided.
After 7 full months of the show airing (10/24/15 - 5/11/15), identical to all available podcast that are still available on davedarin.com with no censorship ever being added to any of the shows, Podcast or otherwise, I am listening after about 15 minutes of the 5/11/15 show and find that my show is not playing. I contact the station, received a very quick facebook reply that sponsors are pissed.
The next day I continue the conversation and I am told that one minute after my show began to air a sponsor contacted 365 Radio Network to complain about content, identical content, including language and adult situations, had always been aired on my show for the full 7 months. I was told that my show was pulled after 5 minutes of runtime.
From there the situation escalated. I was told that I should know better than to have my content of adult language, material, and situations played in storefronts. I references that it was NEVER disclosed to me that my show WAS being distributed to ANY storefronts and NO alternative/censored broadcast was ever requested to exclude any of my adult/mature intended listener. I also made 365 Radio Network aware that even if I had knowledge that my show was being aired in "storefronts" that the word "storefronts" could be interpreted as adult video stores, sexual aid stores, and that I, infact, had recently recorded a live show from the Museum of Sex in New York City which is a storefront. I was fired by a very angry owner of 365 Radio Network and threatened with a lawsuit if any damages were suffered. There was no distribution agreement and any distribution of my show to any sponsor or listener was directly distributed by 365 Radio Network, Dave Darin provided NO format, distribution, or file exchange to any other entity other than 365 Radio Network.
I was asked by my attorney if I wanted to communicate with 365 Radio Network to negotiate a return to 365 Radio Network airwaves but I choose no longer to be associated with very poor management who are very short sighted and do not take personal responsibilities for their actions and do not disclose to their podcasters on who will be listening to materials. It was recommended by my Attorney that I might bring 365 Radio Network to court to discover how many "new" sponsors were picked up with revenue potentially entitled to Dave Darin, LLC but I elected to end the relationship without legal action and just terminate the bad relationship on a poorly managed network.
