When I am talking to someone about what I do, I tell them “my students and I are building a personalized radio system, like Pandora, but one that focuses on promoting the music and events of local artists.”
There are a couple of other important things to know:
- We are student-driven: MegsRadio.fm has been built by an amazing group of Ithaca College and Cornell Students. We have been jammin’ on this project since 2010.
- We are commercial-free: This project is supported by two grants from the National Science foundation and one grant from Amazon Web Services
- We are focused on the listening experience: Both our interactive apps (web, iOS, Android) and our intelligent playlist algorithms are designed to provide listeners with the best possible music discovery experience.
