Yes, but many college radio stations have been unable to recently broadcast via the internet due to legislation imposed hefty royalty fees on radio stations broadcasting on the internet. These fees are no problem for corporations like Clear Channel Communications, and another bill was passed quickly afterwards that allowed exemptions for small businesses. Because most college radio stations are not considered small businesses (and the ones that are generally play more mainstream music with many advertisements interspersed...just like any other station), they were not covered under this act.

Ok, I'll get off my soapbox now.
