SomaFM News:

Regretfully, we have been forced to change the Underground 80s logo; TfL who owns the trademark that we were parodying has sent us a cease and desist. We're working on a replacement logo so please bear with the temporary one.

Thank you SO MUCH for your generous support in August! We were afraid we were going to be way below budget but you all came through in the last week. We love you and thank you so much for supporting SomaFM and letting this grand experiment continue and flourish.
