I found the following press release at Yahoo!'s web site on July 17, 2000. It refers to the launch of a web site called They plan to video stream radio programs, and one of the programs they plan to make available on the web is The Star Lounge, a live show that airs on radio station STAR 98.7 FM in Los Angeles, CA. (If you recall, Tori was part of the Star Lounge 99 CD.) The web site officially launched on August 16, 2000, but as of January 9, 2001, still said the Star Lounge material was "coming soon". (Click here to see this for yourself.) So keep checking the site for it! The press release specifically mentions that Tori will be one of the artists streamed on the site. You can read the full press release below. I will be keeping an eye on this and updating you as needed. Lands Stellar Deal With Star Radio
