American Media Services Interactive Launches Beta of TheRadio.Com – On-Demand Streaming Music Site
American Media Services Interactive (AMSi) announces the beta launch of TheRadio.com the latest free, online music streaming vehicle. TheRadio.com is an on-demand, interactive music delivery site featuring unique capabilities including song skipping, favorites tracking, and a robust search feature.
"With the ease of our search format, individuals accessing music via TheRadio.com can narrow their search by artist, song or genre," said Charles Andrew Whatley, President of AMSi. "TheRadio.com is the answer to the current music consumption notion based on consumers proclaiming 'I want music and media how I want it, where I want it and when I want it'." Created by American Media Services Interactive, TheRadio.com provides a seemingly endless selection of free music of superior quality coupled with ease of use. "TheRadio.com will feature 26 rock channels, 17 country, 15 rhythm and blues, 4 jazz, 18 oldies, 6 Christmas, and 13 religious," said Scott Johnson, Program Director, TheRadio.com.
Exclusively available on TheRadio.com are a dozen weekly countdown channels. Each is devoted to the continuous presentation of the current top 40 songs in multiple genres, as determined by MediaBase, a music industry website containing in-depth charts and analysis based on data from 175 markets in the United States. "TheRadio.com, through its exclusive relationship with MediaBase, is the only online entity where listeners can find all these countdown channels including Adult Contemporary, Active Rock, Alternative, CHR, Country, Gospel, Hot AC, Rhythm, Triple A, Urban Contemporary and Urban," said Johnson.
"Consumers are looking for more flexibility, customization and engagement in music consumption," continues Whatley. This availability of multiple listening formats has proven to be resonating with online listeners as TheRadio.com has seen over 1000% growth in audience within the first three weeks of beta release. TheRadio.com soon will continue to be upgraded and see enhancements in its selection process, monetization, and bandwidth. The beta version provides the opportunity for listeners to provide feedback for improvements and additions.
