The type of interactivity that Student.com Radio offers is the wave of the future
Irvington, NY (PRWEB) June 30, 2006
Student.com, a leading community and social networking site for high school and college-age students has launched Student.com Radio, a commercial free, 24/7 online music station. The radio station is at http://www.student.com/radio. Jeff Edelman, President, The Student Center, Inc., made the announcement.
"The type of interactivity that Student.com Radio offers is the wave of the future,” Mr. Edelman said. “The enormous popularity of Student.com has proven how integral social networking sites have become in the lives of students. Music is a universal common denominator and having it available via the same site they’re already using for other activities makes us the complete destination. We’re excited to be the first major social networking site to have an online music station and our users love the idea of being a major part of it.”
Student.com Radio brings a new dimension to the social networking of the Student.com website. Already an interactive destination, Student.com users can now be active participants in the radio station. DJs who hail from a variety of colleges serve up a blend of modern rock, alternative, and classic rock during prime time hours, with site users providing an added, integral element to the operation of the station.
Song requests, playlist suggestions and dedications can be made in two ways by users, first via the standard chatrooms and forums and communicating directly with the DJs while they are on the air, or second, by recording voice clips of themselves with these dedications, song intros or even messages to others online and submitting those for play both during DJ airshifts or during non-DJ hours. The variety of options offers users the opportunity to become an active part of their music station in a new and unique way.
Student.com and Student.com Radio currently have more than 760,000 registered users worldwide.
