A Gift For Everyone – Radio Paradise

Radio Paradise

At my headshot session last week, the photographer (the wonderful Jonathan Vandiveer) was playing some awesome music via his iMac. I asked what it was and now I am a convert.

It’s run by Bill and Rebecca Goldsmith out of Paradise, California. I have been listening to it for a couple days now and I definitely think it’s worth throwing a little dough their way. It’s listener-supported, so if you like it, consider a donation to support this close-to-perfect radio station!

From their website:
Radio Paradise is Old Fashioned Radio for the 21st Century
Each hour of music is carefully blended together to flow smoothly between different musical styles & genres – just like real DJs used to do on FM. We don’t use the computer-generated playlists or “carefully researched music libraries” that have sucked the soul out of FM radio – and we never just throw songs together at random the way many web stations do.
We also depend on input from you to help fine-tune our music mix. If you hear something that you feel strongly about (either positively or negatively), please take a moment to post a comment on that song. Just click the song title on the playlist or in the mini-browser window. We’d also love to hear from you if there’s an artist you don’t hear, but think would fit in with our music mix. Registered users can upload suggested additions to the library for review.
