Naperville, IL (PressExposure) May 27, 2009 -- Blue Muse Publishing, Inc. announced the official launch of Blue Muse Indie Radio or BMND Radio set for May 31st, 2009. According to Jacob Boland, CIO at Blue Muse, "BMND Radio will provide a continuous broadcast of indie music in a variety of genres. Programs will be regularly updated with the latest submissions while songs receiving a lot of interest will remain in heavy rotation. We are seeing a lot of high quality songwriting and performance from independent artists. Production quality is also important, but it is not absolutely necessary to have the polish of a professional studio."
BMND has been in beta for several months, but the station will be officially launched on May 31st with the addition of a special program for top ranked artists. The playlist for this program will be updated weekly based on interest levels for specific artists and specific songs. Currently, there are generalized programs for Pop, Country, Rock, and Eclectic. A podcast program will be added in the early June and other genre specific programs will be added as more songs are uploaded. Until new genres are added, Eclectic will be album sides from a mix of artists playing various genres.
"We are starting to see an increase in listeners even though we are still in beta", says Del Boland. "It is our intent to provide an opportunity for independent artists to gain exposure on BMND Radio. Unfortunately, it is not enough to simply broadcast music online. It is necessary to launch a campaign to inform the public. I think we will build a respectable following over time through our advertising campaign and word of mouth. Ultimately, I believe that folks who are most likely to listen to independent music want a break from mainstream terrestrial radio which tends to be formulaic. I also think these listeners are interested in creativity but they also want to hear quality without so much commercial interruption and talk."
