Okay, I’m sure you’re wondering why there hasn’t been as much music here lately. Last week’s DMCA takedown was not an incident isolated to BOS, but part of a huge wave of indiscriminate takedowns and post deletions across the blogosphere, many of which seemed to be focused on blogs hosted on Blogspot.

You can read about some of the many incidents here:

Until I can figure out just exactly how to bring you all of the music you love most without getting the entire blog shutdown, some of your favorite features like 5 On A Friday and the occasional random mixes are sadly on hiatus. Fear not though, Bag of Songs is not going away, so please stay tuned.

If you have any thoughts on what’s happened or ideas on what the plan should be go forward, or maybe even just want to relate a similar story, please feel free to leave a comment or send an email.
