Beatcroft Social from 25 February - playlist, plus full HD video archive, Facebook issues and more

First, it's important to say that the full archive of Beatcroft Social/60North Radio shows, in full HD video and glorious stereo, is now available for streaming on the 60 North site. And that INCLUDES last night's, which, along with hundreds of other official and licensed music shows, was blocked by Facebook for reasons inaccessible to us.

We're guessing that Facebook have ignored our repeated messages regarding the licences we have taken out to ensure our broadcasts are legal, and that artists and copyright holders get paid. And that they've decided to take a 'broad brush' approach to copyright music, removing everything they think falls into that category. YouTube did the same thing but relented once deals had been struck with agencies like MCPS. We can only wait and see what happens.

Meanwhile, part of the show (about 40 minutes) IS still available on Facebook. Here, you have links to that, the Mixcloud audio stream, and, as I said, the full archive in HD video and audio, on the (much better than any other source) 60 North website. Enjoy.

Planning to go live again next week from 7.00pm on Saturday - probably with video only on Facebook and a link to the 60 North site. 

And yes, Bill Black was indeed Elvis's bassist. I know, I know...
