Dave's Homemade Radios Links Page
As you know, linking sites is important. This is perhaps how you got to my site, and when
you are done with my site, you can go to the next perhaps using a link found here.
As owner of this website, it is my decision what links will appear here. The main
rule is, the link has to go to a site that will benefit my visitor.
I do add radio related
links when requested to do so. I will
not link sites that have poop up ads or other annoyances. For less than $40 a year,
you can buy space on a web farm. There may
be other reasons that I won't link to a requested site, but overall, I am
pretty friendly. You should be willing to link to me on your site, if requested.
Because you link to me, that does not obligate me to link to you, unless I agree in advance.
I add only text links.
Linking to me
My main radio page is
This is a non-commercial web site. Nothing is sold here.
I would be honored if you link to me. You may link to any page that I offer.
Let me know where you linked so I may enjoy your pages too. I offer
banners for external links. They are at the bottom of this page,
or please take something you see here and make it into a banner.
Linking In Frames
If your website places links in frames,
please don't link to me. If you aren't sure, place the link in your page, upload it
to your server. Click on the link. If your URL, and not mine shows in your browser,
That means that you have put my page in a frame and thus taken ownership of it.
All these links are offered without any warranties or guarantees. I have found
these sites to be useful. Your milage will vary.
