300 Members Sign Up For Instatone Do-It-Yourself Radio In One Month
It was a good day for radio around the world, despite the ever-homogeneous amount of 'the same old thing' on your typical Top 40 station. Instatone, the first DIYer community radio, announced a surprising popularity to its underground internet radio station that went live 30 days ago. It recruited nearly 300 contributors without even trying.
"It must have filled a void on the already-crowded social networking scene by providing a cozy stage for those that are new to songwriting but want to try their luck on the radio anyway, in front of hundreds of other complete strangers," said Aaron Cohen, founder, Instatone. "I won't be surprised if the next Beck gets found not on MySpace or Garageband.com but on Instatone. That's just how these things happen."
Instatone Radio caters to those who have recently started working with Apple Computer's Garageband Software and other easy-to-use music recording computer programs and inexpensive gear.
But unlike most underground or student radios, Instatone's format adheres to a Top 40 format, where the most popular songs get played more often. Cohen insists that there is nothing wrong with a Top 40, that it encourages more demo submissions and interaction with the site. The site is specially designed so that the higher the song's overall rating the more it gets played, and vice verse.
