It has been about a year and a half since Scrub Radio had to shut down its streaming servers and discontinue music uploads. In that time I have tried very hard to come up with some plan for Scrub Radio in the aftermath and continued to come up short. However, at least a partial answer was staring me in the face this whole time.
So I am now brushing off the dust from the old databases and at least partially recreating the old Band Pages.
At the moment, I still cannot offer music uploads (for now at least), but I can at least display the data, as well as provide some new options, in an attempt to generate at least a small amount of extra exposure for the great bands out there!
This is a work in progress, so please be patient. But what I hope to do is provide a page for all Independent Recording Artists to provide links to sites where fans can listen to or even purchase their music. Maybe even in time, music uploads themselves can return. Though for now this will be a purely data only option.
Right now, only existing members can log in and manage their existing Band Pages. In time I will open up registration to new accounts, and new Band Pages will be able to be created to all. But right now I still have some work to do before that last part can happen.
I will also allow for the deletion of Band Pages once I get all previous data (at least where possible) restored. As it is right now, only partial data has been restored and transferred, so if any current data were to be deleted, it would only be a partial deletion.
But I am working on this so expect everything promised above to come to light soon.
Another planned project is moving all of my sites to a new server, which is why right now I do not want new User Accounts or Band Pages created; I don't want anything new lost in the transfer. Right now I just need some time to sit down, purchase the new server, set it up for my needs and then actually transfer all of my sites.
So in the meantime, if you had a Scrub Radio account, feel free to brush it off, log in and take a look around. I am also (as you can see) opening up the Site Blog. Feel free to post if you have anything you want out there.

Thank you for your time.
P.S. Some Closing Info:
Upon logging in for the first time since the new database was created, you will get a one time option to change your Username. Usernames are now alphanumeric only, meaning letters and numbers only, with the one exception being an underscore.
Band Pages can now be rated as well as posted in multiple genres.
