Just a remarkable find for those of us who listen to internet radio.
This channel features Hayley's music very frequently; in fact, four of the last ten songs were hers.
The music channel is also on the Tune In Radio app for iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch.
Thanks for bringing this channel/station to our attention, it seems to work by enlisting volunteers to upload music, which is (if it meets their standards) then played on an appropriate channel. There are many channels and the Romantica channel appears to have a Hayley fan supporting it!
It could be someone at the station itself but more likely, I think it's an external supporter. As other music by other artists is added to the channel, I suspect that the proportion played of Hayley music will fall, but hopefully not too low! It will be nice while it lasts though, it's almost like a Hayley channel at present!
I wondered about the copyright situation but it seems to be all above board as far as I can tell. The owners of Sky FM (Digital Imported) are stated to have struck a revenue-sharing deal with the appropriate US copyright organization:
"The revenue-sharing deal announced Tuesday is between SoundExchange, a nonprofit that collects royalties for recording copyright owners from digital radio services, and three smaller webcasters: radioIO, Digitally Imported and AccuRadio.

So, subject to Maya's concerns about connections, it seems that this station is good for us, and for Hayley! If anyone thinks differently or if I've missed something, please say so, thanks!
PS Maya, At least some of those links you posted are to the sites of legitimate advertisement providers, though I haven't investigated them, I just recognise some of the names.
