Licensing, Credits & Attributions

The 24/7 Online Radio Group runs a diverse range of internet radio stations. We play music under completely  Royalty Free Licenses* provided and/or purchased from a number of recording rightsholders including composers/creators, music libraries and companies whose works are not registered through the Performing Rights Organisations (PRO) nor Collective Management Organisations/Mechanical Copyright Protection Societies. The payment to copyright holders to stream their music tracks on our stations has been determined by individual, negotiated licenses and/or agreements.

We have selected and purchased non-PRO music from the following libraries or collections provided by AKM Music, Royalty Free TunesFilmmusicFree Stock Music FSM TeamKayser Medienverlag and The I Chill Music Factory. The composers/creators who produce their own music include Stewart Dugdale of Royalty Free Tunes, Anthony Kimber McTiffen of AKM Music, and Johannes Kayser of Kayser Medienverlag.  Filmmusic and Free Stock Music FSM Team, provide license agreements on behalf of their composers which means we may have a number of additional non-PRO composers/producers whose music we play on our stations. This includes Sascha Ende from Filmmusic and ESCP from the Free Stock Music FSM Team,

Our non-music stations include 24/7 Nature Radio. In addition to including recordings from some of the collections mentioned above, the 24/7 Nature Radio producer (who is non-PRO) has recorded sounds of nature from the natural environment.

Our library of licensed music consists over over 9000 music tracks and this is steadily increasing. We thank the copyright holders, composers/creators who produce their own recordings and companies for licensing their music to us.

Wherever possible, we credit the composer/creators on the radio station’s website. Composer/musicians and their track titles are credited in our digital streams. Composers (creators) have there own dedicated webpages on this website so that listeners can learn more about them and their work and how to purchase their music.

Non-PRO Composers/creators/musicians who produce their own original work and have retained the copyright can contact us directly if they are interested in our stations including their tracks on our programme playlists. However, we require a written, non-exclusive, worldwide licenses for all music we play on our stations. No licence, no play.

Mixcloud Cloudcasts

The music royalties on our Mixcloud cloudcasts and stations are paid by Mixcloud which has a comprehensive licensing framework with rightsholders globally, including licenses with record labels, publishers, collecting societies and more. Mixcloud’s ICE ‘Core’ licence covers PRS, STIM and GEMA repertoire for their combined 290,000 members and repertoire for some of the leading independent music publishers.

Please visit our main website for full information, 24/7 Online Radio Group. The majority of our stations have separate websites although they will have less information on them.

Royalty Free Music is a misnomer

*Please note that the ‘free’ aspect of Royalty Free Music is a misnomer. Although no further royalties should be payable by the user, generally a fee is paid to the rightsholder(s) upfront ie composer/creator, musician, producer, record label, and/or publisher. The 24/7 Online Radio Group purchases a one-off license for use in perpetuity for a non-PRO collection or library of a producer/creator’s music tracks.

Performance complement

As our stations currently play tracks from seven main non-PRO collections the performance complement cannot be applied, ie 4 tracks by the same artist may be transmitted to the same listener within a 3 hour period. We are not restricted within the terms of our licenses how often we play the music tracks.


Although we have purchased non-exclusive international licenses for all the music we play, due to the broadcast licensing conditions in some countries, we geo-block (or geo-restrict) our internet and phone app streams to them. This includes USA, France and Spain. We apologise for any inconvenience or frustration that this may cause. There are many other established internet stations based in those countries that can provide you with an excellent alternative service.

Listener requests

Our online service is now becoming interactive. Listeners can up or downgrade tracks or artists and request music tracks or recordings. (We limit how many requests can be made by any one listener during a listening period.)

Re-broadcasting or using music tracks from our internet streams

In 2023, it came to our attention that some tracks or entire programmes from our internet radio streams have been recorded and used on YouTube. Although we have licenses and/or written agreements from the copyright holders to use all the tracks we play, these rights are not transferrable. Others wishing to use the tracks must obtain their own licenses directly from the copyright holders. Also as our music creators/music libraries are non-PRO, a license from your national PRO probably will not cover the use of their music. If you want to use the tracks we play, it is important to obtain a license from the rightholders listed at the top of this webpage.

How do I report an infringement of copyright on 24/7 Online Group stations or websites?
