Radical.FM Launches World's Most Comprehensive Music Delivery Service

Bookmark and Share
Radical.FM, the brainchild of Thomas McAlevey, pioneer of internet radio and creator of streaming playlists with Tomsradio.com, announced the Swedish launch of the most comprehensive music delivery service in the world. Radical.FM combines a full-featured personal broadcasting service (TALK and RadCasting for deejays and Talk Show hosts) with curated radio (like Pandora), on-demand playlists (like Spotify) and a powerful distribution channel for indie artists. The innovative service provides users with a cutting-edge audio content delivery platform and a radically integrated music streaming experience. The full service, including unlimited on-demand streaming with music from all major recording labels and independent artists, is now live, free, and ad-free to all users in Sweden.

Radical.FM is also available worldwide with indie content, RadCasting, and TALK - but without label music. Major label music will be added to the global service in the coming months.

"Despite the choices currently available with online music services, until Radical no one has ever challenged the human commentary or musical curation offered by terrestrial radio stations," said Thomas McAlevey, CEO and founder of Radical.FM and a pioneer of online radio. "Radical.FM combines the best of today's cutting edge digital services with the advantages of traditional broadcast radio, including a local connection and personality driven programming. We're finally bringing terrestrial-type radio into the digital age, providing a platform for professionals and amateurs alike to create their very own radio stations and broadcast them to an unlimited audience."

Addressing a critical void in the online music market for terrestrial radio-type curation, commentary, and community, Radical.FM offers artists the unique ability to upload and broadcast their own independently created material worldwide, to access each other's live streams, and to complement their transmissions with their own live voice and video feed. Less active users can tune in to these transmissions, or simply create their own playlists and/or personal stations. These independent radio transmissions are known as RadCasts, with Radical.FM providing every user with a complete broadcast radio station including unlimited legal content. This unique feature set addresses the most significant limitation of the current online radio market, catapults 'old-fashioned' radio into the digital age, and makes Radical.FM the most important new player in the online music industry.

"Radical.FM will change the way online radio is used and perceived," said Christian Landgren, CTO of Radical.FM. "Artists, bands and music enthusiasts alike all get a chance to create a radio station of their very own at no cost. We've built an innovative, highly-customizable listening and broadcasting platform that opens up a new social channel and provides new means by which users can express themselves."

Radical.FM also supports independent artists in their quest for monetization and discovery. Independent artists worldwide can claim their own talk radio and indie distribution channel (RadCast) that will broadcast immediately through the Radical.FM platform and will be accessible to Radical.FM users across the globe. Dedicated to showcasing independent artists and giving them a voice, Radical.FM's Player provides a unique opportunity for artists to project their music and messages to new audiences.
