Foster City, CA (PRWEB) April 20, 2010
Live365 (Live365.com), Internet radio pioneer and provider of premier broadcasting services, announces custom radio stations that help recording artists reach new audiences. Anyone with a computer and an Internet connection can listen to 24-hour artist-centric programming by visiting the artist’s websites or searching by name on Live365.com. Listener reach is further expanded by distribution through Live365’s mobile applications for iPhone, Blackberry, and Windows Mobile, as well as devices such as TiVo, WDTV Live, and Logitech® Squeezebox(TM).
For content owners and creators, setting up a custom radio station is rapidly becoming another powerful tool in the do-it-yourself marketing arsenal. Artists ranging from jazz great Pat Metheny to rockers Third Eye Blind and Santana have gained increased listeners through their radio stations powered by Live365.
Even loved ones left to manage an artist’s estate have been setting up Internet stations as a way to work around the limited airplay slots available on terrestrial broadcast radio. The most recent is Barbara Orbison (Roy Orbison’s widow), who enlisted the help of Live365 to launch “Roy Radio,” a 24-hour program to introduce the history of rock and roll to a new generation available at royorbison.com. Similarly, Gail Zappa, approached the company to power Zappa Radio, available at zappa.com/zapparadio.
The uptake in artist-specific stations suggests an interesting new market for Live 365’s broadcasting services available at live365.com/broadcast. “Live365 has long been an industry-leader for providing broadcasting services to professional and aspiring DJs,” says Jason Stoddard, Director of Broadcasting at Live365. “We’re committed to helping more artists use them to connect with their audience and gain new fans.”
