This Alpha test of our innovative player shows it to be a Ferrari in a field of Minivans.
VENICE, CA (PRWEB) August 09, 2012
Radical.FM, Inc.(Radical.FM) announced today that it has launched a new web based HTML5 Player for its streaming music and audio content service, Radical.FM . Access to the Alpha test player is available by invitation only. New features include a completely revised interface, SoundCloud™ integration, and many performance enhancements. Mobile apps are currently in development.
Radical combines passive Stations (like Pandora™), active Playlists (like Spotify™), and social RadCast™ (personal broadcasting). Patent-pending RadCast makes every listener the owner of a broadcast radio station and permits personal streams to be shared in real-time. The soon-to-be-available TALK function will allow a user to speak to all who are listening to their RadCasts.
Independent musicians, bands, comedians, podcasters, and spoken word artists are invited to upload materials for free worldwide streaming by going to Radical.FM. For every tune or track uploaded, five (5) invitation codes will be sent to them for distribution to fans and friends.
Music industry professionals, journalists, and bloggers may request an invitation by emailing maria(at)radical.fm.
“Radical is the most comprehensive music and audio content delivery service ever. We have 22 million major label recordings in the US, plus a rapidly growing Indie content library for worldwide distribution. Music and other programming blend freely just like on terrestrial radio, only now the user has complete control,” said Radical Founder and CEO, Thomas McAlevey. “This Alpha test of our innovative player shows it to be a Ferrari in a field of Minivans. Soon we will release TALK (in a Public Beta) giving users worldwide the ability to interject live audio for hosting music and talk shows, conducting interviews, and maybe toppling a dictatorship or two. The last bastion of old-fashioned radio - personalities and local content - is about to fall.”
Radical.FM is a complete music and audio content delivery service with unique features and controls. My Stations™ was inspired by audio mixing boards and terrestrial radio programming practices. Unlike other services, Radical Stations do not “guess” what listeners might like based on song choices and subjective computer parameters. Instead, Radical divides its library into Genres and allows listeners to blend as many as desired and assign each a value relative to the others. Blending can be changed instantaneously, creating an endless stream of precisely the kind of music and other material 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 twenty two million songs (where licensed) and Indie content and live programming worldwide. Listeners can share music and audio content streams in real time with any number of other listeners. TALK will harness their microphone so they will have a complete, personal broadcasting station.
