Seattle WAVE Radio and Seattle NightOut Radio were established by Linda and Mark Gordon in September 2010 in Seattle, WA, USA. The goal of our multichannel Internet radio station is to be a community based online radio station specifically designed to showcase the "home" talents of Seattle's great music scene ~ not just locally, but at a national and global level. Our motto is "Your Town ~ Your Music."
You won't hear everybody you're used to because we only broadcast local artists we work with directly. This lets us do cool stuff like coordinate album giveaways and run promotions for new releases. If you want regular radio with the same old music and all the rules, it's out there. So, discover, explore and connect with killer Seattle artists and bands across a huge variety of genres with us. Check out their Facebook page, follow them on Twitter. Share their songs with your friends. Listen as little as you like. Or, just listen like a crazy fool.
SWR and SNOR is a team of music and radio professionals, marketers and technologists who realized that there really is no effective way to market new local music, except how we are doing it. We figure that building a radio platform designed to increase engagement between fans and bands is a smooth idea. We think online radio is the future of music discovery and that it ought to be used to get fans fired up and out supporting new music. If you love what you're hearing, buy their music.
SWR and SNOR is designed to support Seattle's solo artists and bands. We give exposure and airplay to numerous genres of music and hundreds of artists that virtually never receive broadcast radio airplay. The makeup of the programs will be Music, Talk and Lifestyle, "Live" and "Recorded" Podcasts, Light Entertainment, and Live Streaming of Events. SWR and SNOR values creativity and novelty, and will push online radio into new challenging areas. We wish to extend the boundaries of what an online radio station is perceived to be.
We value openness and honesty at SWR and SNOR. We encourage innovative programming and will always have a "can do" attitude to new projects. We look to include new presenters who will work with a sense of community. We are interested in the journey rather than the destination.
The station is solely internet based as we believe the future of broadcasting is on digital platforms like computers, iPhones, Androids, iPads and other on-line devices. We also believe in "Social Radio Delivery" where programs come to the listener rather then the other way around. So we use regular Facebook and Twitter updates to tell listeners what programming is coming next. We believe in clean quality programming. No trash here. Just good clean entertainment and business done the way it should be.
Aside from our current main website, we are additionally growing our lineup of mobile device radio players. We will be bringing many new features and expansions to make SWR and SNOR the easiest way to listen to your favorite Seattle artists and bands on the web. We believe that tuning in to our station should be easy, fast, and fun.
We're going to keep building stuff that makes you love our bands and artists, and our musicians enjoy making new fans by sharing their music. Basically, we're letting bands get back to making music while we help give them the publicity needed to make them successful.
Bear in mind SWR and SNOR is a recent development, so we are very much in the process of fixing and improving things. Please share your thoughts and suggestions on how to make it more useful at: firstname.lastname@example.org. We're here to help improve your radio listening experience on the web and mobile devices.
Finally, SWR and SNOR is a result of many months of dreams and faithful effort from a core group of volunteers, and credits to those people, organizations, bands and artists, and friends that have come along with us in this journey and helped give birth to Seattle WAVE Radio and Seattle NightOut Radio can not be overstated.Thank you!
We hope you like it.
