    Yes, unfortunately that doesn't sound legal to me, unless the songs you make available have been released as public domain.

    upload them to youtube and stream them through your site.

    Alternatively just create a youtube account and upload all your music there, a lot of people just browse good youtube accounts now while listening to a certain genre

    If they're protected by copyright, this would still be infringement, and could well be taken down by Youtube anyway.

    This sounds pretty illegal unless the artists have given you broadcasting rights to their songs... I doubt it lol...

    Why not create a website linking to other sites hosting the music... :p:

    This is usually the case with only big music labels, reggae music isn't designed for consumer **** like justin timberlake and all that **** so record companies don't piss all over people promoting their artists work.

    Heres an example of what i prev mentioned

    Make sure you do the usual 'no copyright infringement intended' etc.
    Put some Barrington Levi records up!!

    best way to do it is to start a blog on blogspot.com, you might find there are already quite a few reggae one's though if you have a look.

    It'd be pretty complex, expensive, time-consuming and probably illegal to do such a thing; just make a torrent if you must, or upload them to Youtube or something

    would it be a good idea to email the people who hold the copyrights etc? and just ask for permission and explain the situation ?
