AccuRadio: Programmed by real people, but customized by you! AccuRadio is comprised of hundreds of channels of music, spanning over 60 genres, that are programmed ... See more by people who love music (not by soulless computer algorithms). But our hundreds of channels are not like broadcast radio -- you can personalize them! How? * 1) Skip songs you don't like. * 2) Delete artists from the upcoming playlists. * 3) Mix various genres together in a single channel. How to Use AccuRadio AccuRadio is made up of hundreds of different radio "channels." Each one of these has its own playlist of artists and songs! To start listening to one of these channels, click one of the blue tiles you see around the site (like the one at right). This will launch a new player window where you can control the channel! Once you're within the player window, there's a few things you can do. We'll start with what you can do within the "player control bar" (pictured below). The "Volume" slider controls how loud the music is. The "Play" button will start the music after you've hit "Pause," which you'll find to the right of "Play." You can Pause in the middle of tracks and resume right where you left off with the Play button! Finally, the button on the far right is "Skip." This button will advance to the next song! If you really like the channel you're listening to, you can bookmark it so you can find it later. We call this adding a channel as a "Favorite." To do so, simply click the gray star in the top of the player (pictured below). It should turn gold. To remove a Favorite channel, simply click the gold star. It will return to gray, indicating that the channel is no longer one of your Favorites. To find Favorite channels in the future, head to this page. If you want to find a different channel to listen to, you can do so easily within the player! Just click "Subchannels" or "Other Channels," which you'll find as tabs along the top of the player. These will provide lists of other AccuRadio channels you'll enjoy listening to! What if you hear a really good song and want to buy it? Easy! Simply click the album art and you'll be brought directly to the page where you can buy the CD. The AccuRadio story AccuRadio is a multichannel Internet radio station specifically designed to showcase the potential of the exciting new medium of Internet radio! AccuRadio is also the first multichannel Internet radio station designed specifically for adults with sophisticated musical tastes. We currently reach over 400,000 unique listeners per month (and up to 1,000,000 unique listeners per month during the Christmas season) with an audience of as many 14,000 simultaneous listeners on weekdays during business hours (Internet radio's "prime time"). AccuRadio's audience is approximately 60/40 male/female and almost equally divided between the 25-34, 35-44, and 45-54 age groups, with an average age of 41.* (More details available here.) AccuRadio supports musicians and labels AccuRadio has been carefully constructed to help record companies and recording artists sell records: * (1) We give exposure and airplay to numerous genres of music and hundreds of artists that virtually never receive broadcast radio airplay. * (2) We constantly display the title and artist and album name for the song that's playing. * (3) We display the CD covers of the last three songs we've played, with each cover linking to the appropriate Amazon page for purchasing that CD. * (4) We sell almost $40,000 worth of CDs per month via our Amazon links, and, according to our listener surveys, directly influence the sales of $200,000 to $400,000 more from other retailers.* * (5) We stream at 32 kbps, which makes for a good-sounding Internet radio station but is not quite a quality level that most consumers feel is a substitute for CD ownership. * (6) We are always happy to work with record labels to help promote new releases (as we have done with Sony Music, WB Records, Angel/EMI, and Bloodshoot Records), including promoting those releases to our 600,000-person mailing list. ("Promo ideas" page here.) We are fully licensed by ASCAP, BMI, SESAC, and SoundExchange/RIAA. *Source: AccuRadio listener survey, April 2004
