Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) September 20, 2011
Radical.FM, Inc. (http://radical.fm) announced today that it has integrated its streaming music services Radical.FM (http://radical.fm) and Radical Indie (http://www.radicalindie.com) with the popular social network Facebook™. Radical combines passive Stations (like Pandora™), active Playlists (like Spotify™ & Rhapsody™), and social RadCast™ (like Turntable.FM™). Listeners can now take advantage of auto-logins via Facebook as well as sharing their RadCasts™ with their Facebook friends. Patent-pending RadCast makes every listener the owner of a broadcast radio station and permits personal music streams to be shared in real-time. The soon-to-be-released DeeJay™ function will allow a user to speak to all who are listening to their RadCasts. Facebook integration makes finding an audience for RadCasting a one-touch operation and is available immediately on Radical’s beta web-based player; development for mobile devices is underway. To sign up for the free public beta, go to Radical.FM (http://radical.fm).
“Integrating our internet music services with Facebook allows listeners to more readily share their music streams in real time with friends” said Radical Founder and CEO, Thomas McAlevey. “When our Radical Indie service launches later this year, this integration will give independent artists unprecedented opportunity to have their music discovered and shared world-wide. We plan to offer even more Facebook integration for both services in the near future. ”
Two month old Radical.FM presents a complete music delivery service, with unique features and controls. My Stations™ was inspired by audio mixing boards and terrestrial radio programming practices. Unlike others, Radical Stations do not “guess” what listeners might like based on song choices and subjective computer parameters. Instead, Radical divides its song library into Genres and allows users to blend as many as desired and assign each a value relative to the others. Blending can be changed instantly, creating an endless stream of exactly the kind of music the listener wants to hear at any given moment.
RadCast makes every user the owner of a broadcast radio station, complete with legal access to over sixteen million songs. Users can share their music streams in real time. A woman in Pittsburgh can share her music live with her husband stationed overseas, or Lady Gaga can have millions of fans tune-in to her station. Users will soon be able to Deejay their own music streams as well.
About Radical Indie
Indie is short for Independent. Ranging from individuals to major acts like Nine Inch Nails, Indie Artists are musicians not signed with the Big Four or their subsidiaries. Often non-conformist, always creative, theirs is a world of music not optimally suited to mainstream services like Radical.FM or Pandora.
The Radical Indie Player will offer full, unlimited play-on-demand functionality free of charge. Both artists and users can create personal playlists choosing from all the music that independent musicians and bands have uploaded into the service. RadCast makes every musician the owner of a broadcast radio station, complete with independent content. Musicians will be able to have their fans listen to their music in real time. A DeeJay function will allow hosts to speak live to their audience, where they can discuss not only their music, but also conduct interviews, promote tours, etc.
Besides being able to upload their music, artists may include related images, lyrics, links to purchase music and merchandise, band bios, etc.
Users only need to sign up once to have access to both Radical Indie and Radical.FM.
