Today, I decided to support an online radio that I’ve been listening to for several months already. Here’s me writing a small introduction, and sharing a project I enjoy every day.
When I listen to music, I often just play my whole music library on shuffle mode, and let it run for hours. Whether it is in the background or I am actively listening to it. Not controlling which specific music I want to play allows me to endessly rediscover my library, which can only grow over time.
The idea behind Radio Paradise is to offer an Internet musical radio, without any commercial, and financially supported by its listeners.
“What you won’t hear are random computer-generated playlists or mind-numbing commercials.”
The music played on air will certainly appeal to many people. Genres vary a lot. However, a very special attention is given to the way songs flow together so as to make sense “harmonically, rhythmically, and lyrically”.
“RP is a blend of many styles and genres of music, carefully selected and mixed by two real human beings.”
The two people behind it work full time on Radio Paradise to manage it all, and to conceive cohesive playlists, without creating any too big of a gap between two tracks. And I must admit: they succeed admirably.
It was partly with this idea in mind that I had tried to set up my own personal webradio (fr) at the time.
I highly recommand it to you: radioparadise.com.
