morning, urRadio launched an
impressive set of creative, music discovery, and social
tools empowering anyone to create, discover, and share
music and talk radio stations.
urRadio is putting the power to become an
on-air DJ in the hands of anyone with enough initiative to try
it out. Built specifically with creatives in mind, urRadio
users can host their own show, talk live with listeners
via audio or instant messages, and discover new music and other
entertainment by tuning in to an unlimited number of live
Internet radio stations curated by other urRadio users.
“urRadio is a live social soundtrack for your life,” said
Tyler Francios, CEO of urRadio. “Our platform
offers that which is absent in other music streaming services –
live, original content free of the geographical listening
limitations of traditional FM radio. In addition, urRadio
possesses the diverse and expansive content that is present in
satellite radio, but at a much larger scale. The
essence of urRadio derives from its capacity to allow users to
become a live Internet radio
station that can be hosted anywhere, anytime. Our
patented technology and extensive social features deliver the
most personalized and social music experience available today.”
has set itself apart, purposefully, by establishing itself as a
destination the inherently motivated creators within the music
industry instead of casting a net across the industry as a
whole. This has allowed urRadio to hone in on creating a
seamless live social music experience that
personalities, and artists can enjoy and benefit from.
In an interview with Hypebot.com, Francios elaborated on
the social connectivity that drives urRadio:
“You have these kinds of users: bloggers, design stars,
podcasters, YouTube personalities – people who
like creating content. We’re tracking those
users.” Francois continued, “If you look at the overall concept
of social media, it’s people following other people. I want to
know what you’re wearing, what you’re eating, who you’re
hanging out with… and that’s what urRadio does with music.
It’s for the people who follow their favorite celebrities on
YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter. urRadio keeps them connected –
now, that audience can tune in to their favorite celeb station,
listening and interacting live.”
At launch, urRadio is available on iOS, Android, and web based platforms and is
free to use with no ads or commercials, no software to
download, and nothing to configure. Over the next year, urRadio
will release tiered premium subscriptions that offer
subscribers additional broadcasting technology, more DJ
features, and unlimited ad-free streaming.
