Company Details

Update

Radical.FM is the world’s most accurate Personal Radio service, built on one of the most comprehensive music libraries available, "If Pandora and Spotify had a baby... it would be Radical.FM." - The Radio Agency Radical.FM marries the interactive nature of Internet with the programming expertise of the broadcast radio industry. While competitors like Pandora create complex algorithms to generate song lists, Radical is programmed by hand, by passionate music experts. With 25 million tracks at your disposal and a powerful yet user-friendly design, no other service creates an endless stream of songs that so accurately reflects your musical taste. Radical, free and commercial-free for as long as you make it possible. A corporation with a conscience, Radical.FM compensates artists, composers, and labels for all the music streamed. Yet the company chooses to offer the ad-free service on a ‘Pay What You Can’ donation basis because Radical believes in a quality musical experience devoid of commercials, even for the unemployed and working poor.

Radical continues a two-decade tradition of pushing the boundaries of online radio. Tracing its roots back to Tomsradio.com (a Swedish streaming music service that helped inspire Spotify), as well as Bandit Radio (Sweden’s biggest rock radio station, one of the first broadcast radio stations to simulcast over the internet in 1994), Radical’s broadcast radio roots helped inspire its uniquely effective interface. Unlike typical tech and algorithm-heavy online radio services, Radical.FM is programmed by hand, by human beings. With a powerful yet intuitive design, no other service allows such a high degree of control over an endless stream of music.
