Online Radio – What Are You Missing Out On?

japanese pop music Online Radio   What Are You Missing Out On?

If you still haven’t tried out online radio, then now is the perfect time to delve into this mountain of information and entertainment.

Online radio is revolutionizing the way people listen to the radio and if you aren’t in line with this changing trend, then you’re missing out big time. Here are a few reasons why you should tune in to online radio:

Trusted Source for Fresh News

There have probably been times when you thought your local news station was missing a big national story. Or maybe they were too slow to report what was happening.

It takes time for a locally-staffed crew to report on stories that happened beyond their jurisdiction, but with the help of online radio, you can listen to the local radio stations from everywhere.

This means that you can actually listen to first-hand news stories.

Source for New Music

The top 10 charts are fine if you aren’t bothered by their constant repetition. However, for those who like to hear new music, online radio is the way to go.

One of the best features is that you can listen to exactly what you like and avoid what you don’t. With traditional radio, you were stuck with the few stations you had. Online radio can keep track of your preferences and it can present you with the kind of music that you like.

Custom Niches

Traditional radio stations are limited to playing music of the genre. For example, you can find a channel that plays popular country songs or pop or rock or rap or a top 10 chart. However, what if you want to hear rock and rap both on a channel?

Finding such seemingly impossible combinations is possible with online radio.

Explore Different Musical Cultures

Why just confine ourselves to the boundaries of western music only? The South Asians have a bulky music industry of their own, while the Japanese can also strike the perfect chord to create those incredibly attractive dance tunes.

Online radio lets you explore different sounds of different cultures without charging you anything extra.

Listen to New and Unique People

Many spend hundreds of dollars buying audio books. Guess what? Online radio to the rescue! Choose from a selection of hundreds and listen to the free lectures and interviews of your liking.

With such a mountain of information and entertainment so easily available, there is no reason for you not to try out online radio.

Recently, some paparazzi took pictures of Taylor Swift doing something extremely uncharacteristic. She wasn’t being arrested by police, nor did she come out of a night club without her underwear.

The shocking action in question? Buying stuff from Target.

While a guest on Jay Leno’s “The Tonight Show,” she explained that because of a video shoot, she is spending a few weeks in Los Angeles. Since she’s in LA, she doesn’t have her at-home necessities and had to pick some up, like a record player.

Someone told her that Target carried quality record players and she said she’s “been listening to a lot of music on vinyl.” Naturally, a trip to Target was in order. page go Taylor Swift Likes Hip Hop; Listens to 50 Cent, Rihanna and Nicki Minaj Continue reading Taylor Swift Likes Hip Hop; Listens to 50 Cent, Rihanna and Nicki Minaj »

Britney Spears Gasoline Britney’s Songwriter Claude Kelly Explains ‘Gasoline’

Britney Spears’ album Femme Fatale is a saucy but dark LP that has everything to do with club and dance music. One of the less talked about songs, which holds the essence of the whole album in it is the fiery self explanatory song ‘Gasoline,’- a Claude Kelly written song. According to Kelly, he wrote this song while focusing on the sexiest moments of Britney’s career.

Talking in an interview with MTV, Kelly said that when he was writing the song, the theme he wanted to emulate was that of the one displayed in previous Britney songs such as ‘Toxic,’ ‘Slave 4 U’ and ‘Boys.’  he said that Britney in the physically hot club with guys around her is a very popular theme and he thought that revisiting it once more would be a lot of fun.  He said that even though some may think that Britney would not have been able to recreate the kind of ‘man-eater’ persona that she was once known for in her raunchy songs, she actually pulled it off without breaking a sweat, proving that she still has what it takes to do whatever she wants. page go Britney’s Songwriter Claude Kelly Explains ‘Gasoline’ Continue reading Britney’s Songwriter Claude Kelly Explains ‘Gasoline’ »
