“Was nice while it lasted”.
Legendary online radio station Rinse FM has taken to Twitter to note that their SoundCloud profile archiving a legion of broadcasts over the years has been disabled. Links to any uploads and to their main profile leads to an error message.
Was nice while it lasted @SoundCloud. Shame to lose so many uploads, but life moves on. And having backups helps 😅 pic.twitter.com/tzQOMdFUnO

Yesterday it was reported that SoundCloud may only have finances to support 50 more days of business. Just a week ago, the pioneering indie streaming platform laid off 40% of its employees and closed its offices in San Francisco and London. While this story is still developing, rumors have sparked that Chance the Rapper may bail SoundCloud out.
