With online being the first choice of more and more people looking for new music, the decision was made to create a service where “real people, real passionate music fans, could recommend music to other real passionate music fans, without any sort of mechanical or electronic filters.” The concept was inspired by the success of Pandora and Last.fm. However, while Pandora and Last.fm work on complex algorithms, ExploreMusic was designed as a place where music fans could turn to discover new music and information about the artists involved, as well as be encouraged to make recommendations themselves with the goal of creating conversation and community.
The show has 1 million weekly listeners (five half-hour shows each week). Thanks to whoever sent us in.
