Radical.FM Launches In Beta
June 23, 2011 at 6:30 AM (PT)
RADICAL.FM is offering an invitation-only private beta launch of RADICAL.FM, it's new, personal Internet radio service. Building and expanding on experience gained from TOMSRADIO.COM, an early 21st Century Swedish/American pioneer of Internet radio, RADICAL combines user tailored music radio stations (like PANDORA and SLACKER) with on-demand playlist functionality (like RHAPSODY and SPOTIFY), and adds social networking and personal broadcasting capabilities.
"Before RADICAL.FM, personalized radio lacked the flexibility to adapt to a user's changing moods," said RADICAL Founder/CEO THOMAS MCALEVEY. "I've enjoyed services like PANDORA, but it takes time to get a station just right. And when I do, I don't want to meddle with it just because I'm having a party. Using our unique Player anyone can create an ideal music mix, and then change its direction as quickly as their mood moves them too, without ever hearing an unwanted song."
"We made the decision to launch an invitation-only beta to industry professionals and journalists in order to give the system a shakedown before going public," continued MCALEVEY. "We are looking forward to the feedback from these early adopters."
