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.

Ivory Queen of Soul Teena Marie’s Death Caused by Grand Mal Seizure

teena marie Ivory Queen of Soul Teena Marie’s Death Caused by Grand Mal SeizureA grand mal seizure may have caused R&B singer Teena Marie’s untimely death at the age of 54.

The singer was found dead in her Pasadena home the day after Christmas. Marie was taking an afternoon nap in her bedroom where her daughter checked her twice while she was asleep. On the second time she was checked at 3 p.m., Marie was already unresponsive.

Pasadena, California police said the singer died of “natural causes” according to a TMZ report. The singer’s publicist, Lynn Jeter, said in her statement that Marie might have suffered a grand mal seizure. It was reported that the R&B artist endured the same type of seizure a month ago, but was immediately taken to the hospital, enduring another seizure while inside the ambulance.

A grand mal seizure, according to Mayo Clinic, is caused by abnormal electrical activity throughout the brain which features loss of consciousness and violent muscle contractions. Most of the time, this kind is caused by epilepsy while in some cases; the seizure is triggered by extremely low blood sugar or a stroke.

The seizure was said to have caused Marie two broken ribs from a fall; injuries are common for people who suffered from a seizure this massive. Marie’s daughter, Alia Rose, called 911 when she found her mom unresponsive. Despite a very emotional disposition, Alia Rose made the report herself and told the operator that her mother “lost her color…her color is gone”.

An autopsy and toxicology will be performed later this week. By then, questions about Marie’s death will be answered fully, though even now, illegal drug intake has been ruled out as a reason for the songstress’ passing, as law enforcement officials found no traces of such drugs. Marie struggled in fighting addiction to prescription pain medication before, according to the Associated Press. She became addicted to Vicodin when her ex-lover and mentor Rick James passed away in 2004.

Later on, she dismissed taking such medication and had shifted to using herbal medicines. When her body was found, herbal medicines were recovered from her room (not marijuana, according to police).

“Lovergirl” by Teena Marie

Born Mary Christine Brockert, Teena Marie was also known by the nickname Lady T and was dubbed “The Ivory Queen of Soul”. She signed with Motown Records in 1976. The multi-instrumentalist was regarded as “one of the strongest voices in R&B and soul music”. Her hits include Lovergirl, Ooo La La La, and Square Biz. Marie was able to release 13 albums throughout her career, two of which went platinum, and the rest of which went gold. Her 1984 single “Lovergirl” was Marie’s biggest hit, reaching number four on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

Marie was supposed to head to Atlanta to perform a New Year’s show; Jeter shared Marie’s excitement about her scheduled performance, as it was the singer’s first after the seizure she experienced last month.

The late R&B star received four Grammy nominations. Cathy Hughes, founder of Radio One, described Teena Marie as “a black voice trapped in a white body” for the soulful artistry the late singer possessed. She had worked with big names in the music industry in her three-decade career and was regarded by Hughes as “one of the greatest vocalists of our time”.

Cover Songs That Beat the Originals

happy mondays Cover Songs That Beat the OriginalsMusic is an incredible art form…can you imagine how monotonous life would be without it? What would a graduation be without “Pomp and Circumstance”? What about a wedding without the “Wedding March”? Songs have impact; this impact often inspires other artists to make their own version of popular songs from the past. Sometimes, the audience gives a negative review of the revision—inspired, no doubt by some fond memory they have of the original. At other times, the cover version makes much bigger waves than the original; sometimes  to the point that everyone forgets who initially sang it.  With all of that in mind, we have compiled a short list of covers that ended up better than the originals. page go Cover Songs That Beat the Originals Continue reading Cover Songs That Beat the Originals »
