Dallas, TX (PRWEB) March 28, 2009
ChannelJunky.com, the top internet radio search engine, today announced a new look and feel, which now includes over 5,000 streaming online radio stations. The new format allows users to search for online radio stations by their favorite band, music style, or keyword. The new version also gives users access to over 2,500 streams so they can click and listen.
"I'm pleased with the new rollout," said John Patrick, founder and CEO of ChannelJunky. "It's a new way for listeners to find fresh music in a sea of online radio stations and portals. Never before have listeners been able to find quality radio based on relevance. It's like Google for radio."
In collaboration with Last.fm, ChannelJunky profiles radio stations based on the songs they play. Users can enter a favorite band to see what stations are most likely to play that band. Or they can search for stations by music style (or tag).
"We'll eventually be a one-stop site for internet radio, with our own web-based player for desktops, iPhones, and other gadgets," says Patrick. "You'll be able to listen to whatever you want - from Alternative to Zydeco - on the web from wherever you are."
ChannelJunky is an online guide and search engine for internet radio stations. Its uniqueness comes from the ability to search for radio stations by starting with your favorite band or music style. Stations are profiled and search results are ranked based on relevance and listener ratings. Founded in 2008 by 24-year-old John Patrick, ChannelJunky is beginning to make waves in the online radio scene. Patrick, the founder of online indie radio station, discoverRadio, found it difficult to find a one-stop site that connected listeners with relevant radio stations. The Web was full of directories and Pandora-esque sites that lacked a connection with new music. Patrick created ChannelJunky.com as a side project, and it is changing the way people listen to music.
