Avid Music Lover Runs London Marathon For Our Pilot Project Partner, AET

 

Around this time last year, RadioFlag did a TEDX talk, where we mentioned how internet radio and mobile technologies are helping to educate and empower people in Africa, including some of the most conflict ridden parts of Africa. RadioFlag put “it” (our beliefs) out there; one being that we believe internet radio can help provide remote education for children who cannot safely travel to classrooms to learn, and it can essentially create “social-radio powered classrooms” for those in Africa. Later part of last year is when RadioFlag and Africa Educational Trust first connected, with the feeling that there could be some great synergy in exploring this mission together, so we mutually decided to develop a pilot project, which is currently underway.

 In the spirit of collaboration, we invite you to learn more about AET and their 2016 marathon runner Charlotte, who loves exploring the world, discovering new music, bands and DJs, and is an avid festival goer; that is when she is not running to unwind, or as in this case, running for a worthy cause. You can support Charlotte and AET by donating to her virgin money giving page. All donation will be matched.

February 2016 ‘Top 55′ Song Chart: RadioFlag DJ’s Gave These Artists the Most Spins

RadioFlag’s  ‘Top 55 Song Chart’ is made possible by independent, live radio DJs from college and internet radio stations from around the globe. Every month the Song chart showcases mostly ‘just released’ (and many ‘not yet released’) music, comprised mainly of new emerging bands and artists from around the world. The Song chart is based on the number of spins Radio DJs give a track. Data is collected from the songs these radio DJs post on their RadioFlag profile via its playlist feature. This is then analyzed each week. January’s line up is filled with a colorful of assortment sounds and genres described as follows: rock-blues-funk-folk, piano prog-pop,  indie pop, garage rock, rock-blues-punk-alternative, hard rock, metal, electronic rock, futuristic, electro-indie, alt-pop, house, prog-rock, art rock, anime, j-pop, rock ‘n’ roll, indie rock, hip-hop, rap, art pop, post-punk, dark pop, R & B, and psychedelic. 

The Radio DJs on RadioFlag who are the first to us its playlist feature, are setting new documented music trends, and they authentically have their finger on the pulse of emerging music and culture both locally and globally; so they often discover and give airplay to new music acts before anyone else. So, if you’re a music artist or band, maybe think about connecting with radio DJ’s via RadioFlag. Check out their profile, tune in to a live show, and if you think they’ll like your style, send them a message or link to your music. If they like your sound and vice versa, they may just give you some spins. If they are posting the music they play, you will see their ‘Playlist’ button on their profile page. Click it and see if the tracks they play sync up with your style.  Music can even be purchased directly from the DJs playlist via RadioFlag’s app.
