Radio.co Streaming Platform Launches

U.K. entrepreneur JAMES MULVANY has announced the launch of RADIO.CO, a streaming radio platform allowing users to build and stream their own stations.
MULVANY, who launched tech company IGNISO ten years ago at age 18, evolved RADIO.CO from IGNISO's WAVESTREAMING brand. RADIO.CO opened with a soft launch six weeks ago, and MULVANY claims 40% week-on-week growth, with 300 subscribers thus far and partnerships with TUNEIN and APPLE.
“Video never did kill the radio star,” said MULVANY. “And far from killing off radio, the Internet has in fact made it stronger than it has ever been. Research proves that people are increasingly turning away from on-demand music and content, and back to live -- because in our busy lives we tend to trust our favorite DJs and presenters to select or ‘curate’ for us rather than always having to search for ourselves.”
