Listen to KPIG
Somehow, we’ve successful avoided ever featuring KPIG in the Digital Media newsletter, despite it’s being the first commercial radio station to broadcast on the Internet. Unfortunately, their free live stream is no more, although they do have a pre-recorded show that’s pretty awesome. Broadcasting live from the Santa Cruz area, KPIG serves up radio the way it’s meant to be done, with real people choosing cool music, instead of letting trends and statistics dictate what will be aired like so much of corporate radio today. I’m now torn between KPIG and for my online listening attention. In an effort to survive, they’ve joined the RealOne RadioPass network of stations, ( I can only hope a competing service emerges so that Real doesn’t control the online radio market) which offers about 50 stations for $5.95/month.
