Extend the listening period?

At FAWM, the period after the deadline closes for submissions is just about long enough to get through most, if not all, of the songs submitted by people I follow (with the exception of the incredibly prolific few who manage over 50 (mainly lyrics only) during February.

This was my first 50/90 and it is becoming obvious to me that with the best will in the world, I am not going to be able to find the time to listen to every song submitted by those I follow before the end of October.

Is there any financial (or technical) reason why the site will disappear a mere month after the show closes? I would dearly love to be able to do justice to those who have left me comments, let alone the folk I follow.

Is October 31st definitively the day the music dies?
