Bala Cynwyd, PA (September 24, 2008): Greater Media announced today it has officially partnered with AccuRadio to produce PhillySmoothJazz.com, a new, unique online music station which provides Philadelphia’s dedicated jazz and R&B fans with a place to hear all of their favorite Smooth Jazz artists.
PhillySmoothJazz.com is the worlds’ first multi-channel Smooth Jazz radio station, offering six different channels of Smooth Jazz. These options include a main channel, plus five additional channels: Smooth Piano Jazz, Smooth Guitarists, Smooth Saxophones, Smooth Jazz Vocals, and Smooth Instrumentals.
Once listeners launch a channel, they can personalize it to their individual tastes, including skipping songs they don’t like, or even “deselecting” artists they don’t want to hear.
Additional channels slated to be unveiled later this month include Broadway Jazz, Groove Jazz, and a Smooth Jazz channel devoted specifically to Philadelphia-based musicians. In addition, the “Other Channels” tab on the media player will provide Jazz fans with access to 14 channels of Mainstream Jazz.
PhillySmoothJazz.com is based on the infrastructure developed by AccuRadio.com, one of the world’s leading personalizable, multi-channel webcasters. AccuRadio won both the 2006 and 2008 “People’s Voice” Webby Award for “Best Radio.
“We are thrilled to be able to offer Smooth Jazz fans a place to hear the music they love,” said Greater Media Philadelphia Vice President and Market Manager John Fullam. “Now, with our new partnership with AccuRadio, former 97.5 Smooth Jazz listeners will have access to the music they love 24 hours a day.”
The webcast is available now at www.phillysmoothjazz.com.
