To our faithful listeners,

We've decided to formally shutdown thesixtyone.com -- our servers will go offline at midnight, May 1st 2017.

Artist tipping and music purchases will be functional until then, so please spend any remaining credits by month's end.

2007-2017

Thank you for being a part of it.

Farewell,

James Miao & Samuel Hsiung
