Grooveshark Unveils Broadcast

grooveshark-logoGrooveshark has unveiled Broadcast, which allows users to create and share their own live-streaming online radio show, including the ability to hand-pick songs to play and to record their own voice for listeners across the web.

Broadcast also features real-time chat, statistics, music suggestions and voting for preferred requests.

“We’re excited to launch the first ever truly democratized radio platform, and look forward to seeing web DJ’s grow into celebrities the way YouTube has created homegrown video celebrities,” said Sam Tarantino, Grooveshark’s CEO and co-founder. “This is a major leap forward for the web, as the world now has an audio voice to complement YouTube’s video voice and Twitter’s microblogging voice. If the 20th century was characterized by terrestrial radio DJs, the 21st century will be characterized by viral radio DJs and homegrown web personalities.”

Similar to other Grooveshark features, Broadcasts are free to create and share.

Broadcast goes live on Wednesday (April 24). Users can preview Broadcast at preview.grooveshark.com.
