Save Internet Radio

How many people listen to internet radio?

Yeah you right, AV. Every where you go in Vegas, they are passing out some sort of cards or VIP passes so I figured I might as well join in and do some promoting of my own. I can't wait till we launch Swamble, we'll be promoting big time on the strip!
