They provide "Old Fashioned Radio for the 21st Century".
"Each hour of music is carefully blended together, just like real DJs used to do on FM."
They don't use the computer-generated playlists or "carefully researched
music libraries" that have sucked the soul out of FM radio.
The station is run using an innovative programming automation system designed
by Bill Goldsmith. Bill has been programming & DJing progressive radio
stations for a long time, but (as you might have noticed) there's not much
room for creative, eclectic, and diverse radio on the FM band these days.
Bill explains: "That's why I'm so excited about the possibilities of web
radio. It gives people like me the chance to tell the bean-counters who
rule the radio biz to take that FM tower & shove it where the sun...
Sorry. I get carried away sometimes."


Radio Paradise also depend on input from you to help fine-tune their music

you don't hear, but think would fit in with the music mix.
