Radiojar Wants to Add The Human Element to Online Music

Radiojar is a social music platform that allows anyone to create their own web radio station without spending loads of time finding the right software and hardware to get started. The Athens, Greece based start-up wants to add the human element to online music which we are currently lacking with services like Pandora, Slacker Radio and Spotify. Here is a interview I had last week with RadioJar’s co-Founder Stathis Koutsogeorgos about the his company’s creation, the future of web radio and the environment for start-ups with the instability in Greece’s economy.

What inspired the creation of Radiojar?

Our first idea was to build something that allowed online DJing among friends. Based on this concept in 2009, we begun researching what technology we could use to achieve it. We realized early in 2010 that there was a huge gap in the solutions available online for internet radio stations, and started to investigate this market further. We ended up developing a prototype for the server-side live stream mixing, and then continued focused on internet radio to come up with Radiojar in 2011.

Besides the lack of the human element, why do you think online radio is so stagnant?

People expect more interaction and control when they experience something online. The new, internet-only radio stations know this well and are adapting and we’re here to help them do it with a reduced cost. The terrestrial radio stations that simply broadcast the same stream online appear dated and non-interesting to an online audience: They are too corporate and standardised, and they are tightly regulated by playlists. We can help them get an internet strategy and expand on it.

I noticed that RadioJar is working on some pretty advanced technology. What has the development process been like?

We have been trying to find technological solutions that are as open as possible, trustworthy, reasonably priced, play well with others and allow us to scale. We’re implementing a complex platform, so we have to use many different technologies to achieve the result we’re aiming for and we’ve found the above guidelines have served us well in keeping things smooth and simple. We believe in open source software and we try to contribute as much as we can to the communities of the software solutions we’re using.

How has the start-up community been affected by the instability of the economy in Greece?

It is true that there is much pessimism and uncertainty for the future, but somehow networking forums and entrepreneurship events are blossoming. This caused a new wave of entrepreneurial activity in Greece and the future looks promising. We’re very optimistic. Things are tough, but there are always opportunities, even within a recession.

What do you think web radio will look like in the future?

We are witnessing a huge change in the web radio field. Numbers of internet radio listeners are growing every day (as opposed to terrestrial radio listeners), and this creates a need for quality, competitive online radio, strong enough to resist against other music related services. We believe that this, in conjunction with the new technology we’re bringing to the field, will lead to an increase in live, interactive shows that engage listeners in new and more meaningful ways.

What are some of the challenges you guys are currently facing?

We’re self-funded, so we’re in a constant battle to meet our targets while staying in budget. We are looking into securing some investments that will allow us to grow in the long term. As our project gets closer to launch, we’re facing the challenge of how to better reach our target market, offer a valuable service and stay relevant.

Why Do People Prefer Online Radio?

Studies have shown that listening to music while you are working can help you improve your results and your productivity. Sometimes you cannot take a CD player with you at work and the best solution is to listen online radio. Radios have been designed to satisfy the needs of all listeners: they help you keep in touch with the latest news, they play the best music and they also have interesting talk-shows to entertain you with.

The main advantage is that online radio can be listened anywhere in the world, so, even if you are abroad, you can still listen to your favorite programs. There have been various online radios launched lately, meaning that the competition is high. This is great for us, the listeners, because this means that the creators must improve everything to make sure that they will satisfy their old listeners while also gaining new ones.

Most online radios have very good DJ’s which try to communicate as well as they can with their audience. The best thing about online radios is that you can post your comments on the Internet.

If you have found the right online radio for you, but you hate to waste time searching for it every time that you turn on your computer, we recommend that you look for a radio software: there are various websites which provide this type of software, some of them even for free. You just have to make an account and you can afterward download the software to your computer. The main advantage is that you can select your favorite radio and store it, so that each time you turn on your computer, you can also turn on the radio you love. Ont he other hand, the main disadvantage is that you depend on your Internet connection – if you have problems with your connection, you will not be able to listen to the radio.

As we have said before, online radio is a great invention simply because people can choose the music they want to listen to and the news they want to hear. For example, there are many people who love country music but do not have the opportunity to listen to it because not many radio stations play country music. This is why, the online country radio has been launched. This is just an example of how many benefits the online radio has as a standard radio does not offer you the opportunity to choose your favorite music.

Match previw: To say that Portugal were unconvincing in qualifying for the World Cup would be an understatement. Their place in South Africa was only secured courtesy of a play-off victory over Bosnia-Herzegovina, and they failed to even score against lowly Albania in a home qualifying fixture, playing out an embarrassing 0-0 draw in Leiria.

Add to that Cristiano Ronaldo’s failure to score in their qualification campaign, and a recent 0-0 draw at home to minnows Cape Verde Islands, and it would be fair to say that Carlos Queiroz is under as much pressure as any coach at the finals.

For the Ivory Coast’s Sven-Goran Eriksson, though, it is an unexpected chance to lead the best equipped of the African nations into the continent’s first World Cup finals. The draw may not have been kind to Ivory Coast, but having been grouped with unknown quantity North Korea and under-performing Portugal, Eriksson’s men will be confident of progressing alongside probable group winners Brazil.

Their success, however, hinges on the fitness of talismanic striker Didier Drogba. Should Drogba recover from a broken arm in time to play a full part in Ivory Coast’s campaign, they will be a team to avoid in South Africa.

Ivory Coast player in focus: Salomon Kalou. With doubts over the participation of Didier Drogba, following his injury in the friendly against Japan, the onus falls on his Chelsea team-mate Kalou to lead the attack. Quick, agile and with a good eye for goal, Kalou has been unlucky to be sidelined so regularly for his club and has a great chance to prove himself on the world stage.

Portugal player in focus: Cristiano Ronaldo. Having failed to score in Portugal’s dismal qualifying campaign, Ronaldo has the expectations of the entire world on his shoulders in South Africa. He already talked of feeling under pressure, but he needs to be at his best if a weak Portugal attack is to fire. Without Nani, Ronaldo’s trickery on the wings will have to provide a large chunk of the service for Liedson up front, and he will be the focus of all Portugal’s moves.

Key Battle: Emmanuel Eboue v Simao. With Ronaldo on one side, Simao will have the chance to run at his man and may target Eboue as a weak link in the Ivorian defence. Having burst onto the scene as a full back at Arsenal, Eboue has been moved further up the pitch for his club and Simao will be keen to exploit his lack of defensive nous. Perhaps a spiky confrontation is on the cards as well, as both men have been known to lose their tempers in the past.

Trivia: Portugal have six players in their squad born outside of Portugal: Deco, Liedson, Pepe (all Brazil), Daniel Fernandes (Canada), Rolando (Cape Verde) and Danny (Venezuela).

Stats: Sven-Goran Eriksson has been knocked out of his last two major tournaments as an international manager at the quarter-final stage, on penalties, by Portugal (Euro 2004, World Cup 2006).

Odds: Ivory Coast (3.40), the draw (3.25), Portugal (2.20) with Bet365. With Portugal looking unconvincing in attack, 2-0 to Ivory Coast at 17.00 looks good value.

Prediction: A combination of a fit Didier Drogba and passionate African support should see Sven’s men through to a narrow win but, if the Chelsea man misses out, a draw looks the more likely outcome.

The most successful side in World Cup history, Brazil are revered around the world for their free-flowing, attacking style of football that has allowed them to give the world the gift of players like Pele and Garrincha. But a new breed of Brazilian finds itself at this year’s World Cup, under the tutelage of their defensive midfield general turned coach, Dunga.

Fitting, perhaps, that Brazil will find themselves up against North Korea in the first game, as the defensive mindset that that has taken over the Samba stars is employed to full effect in Asia as well. Of course, the gap between the two sides is huge. Conventional wisdom dictates that Brazil should walk away with a comfortable win, but they will have to break down some stubborn defending if they are to do so.

In Kaka, Robinho and Luis Fabiano, Brazil don’t quite have the same attacking platform as the three Rs of Rivaldo, Ronaldo and Ronaldinho from the last time they lifted the trophy in 2002 – but they do possess a very similar midfield with Kleberson and Gilberto Silva employed in the holding roles. For Cafu and Roberto Carlos, read Maicon and Michel Bastos – full backs so impressive that Barcelona star Daniel Alves is left on the bench – but the criticism of their style under Dunga has not lifted despite the players on show. Make no mistake: they may have topped their qualifying group but, to the Brazilian public, they have a lot to prove.

Their opposition, North Korea, have already won the favour of their fans simply by qualifying for the tournament. With a pedigree that includes a shock run to the quarter-finals in 1966, beating Italy 1-0 in the process, the Koreans head into South Africa knowing that just a draw in the ‘Group of Death’ will make them global celebrities. The secret nature of the country, and indeed the team, have many guessing how they will set up, but a 5-4-1 formation looks likely with every man behind the ball.

Brazil player in focus: Kaka. After months on the sidelines troubled by injury for his club Real Madrid, Kaka holds the key for the creativity of this Brazil side. This squad is not overly blessed with the usual array of attacking talents, but Kaka stands alone as one of the best in the world on his day. He will be well rested after the season and should be raring to go.

North Korea player in focus: Jong Tae-Se. The only North Korean to make himself readily available to the media before the tournament, Jong, who was born in Japan, has talked of his ambition to score a goal a game at the tournament. ‘The Asian Wayne Rooney’, as he has been dubbed, is basically the only attacking outlet for his side and has proved himself a dangerous finisher in some of the pre-tournament friendlies.

Key battle: Robinho v Nam Song-Chul. Robinho has a lot to prove at this World Cup after being shipped off to Santos on loan. His pace and trickery will certainly provide a tough test for the Korean defence, especially with Nam Song-Chul filling in on the left-hand side of defence and attempting to get forward as much as he can. Most likely, Nam will avoid any attacking urges but Robinho’s talent as he drifts around the final third could embarrass his opponent.

Trivia: Korea means ‘Land of the Morning Calm’ in Korean and the North Korean football team’s nickname is Chollima, a mythical winged-horse popular in central Asian folklore. It is said to be “too swift to be mounted”.

Stats: North Korea’s biggest win came in 2005 when it stomped Guam 21-0. Don’t expect the same attacking prowess against Brazil.

Odds: Brazil (1.10), the draw (9.00), North Korea (29.00) with Bet365. Jong Tae-Se to score anytime is 7.00

Prediction: No shock here, although the Koreans may win over a few doubters if they can avoiding haemorrhaging goals early. Brazil should put at least three past them.

So where can i watch Brazil vs North Korea live online video streaming? Here is a way that you can watch it, just hit HERE. The links will be updates before schedule the game live feed and stream coverage on 6/15. Stay tune in rugby if you want to watch another match.

Angel Stadium of Anaheim, Anaheim, California
WATCH LIVE NOW
Starting Pitchers
National: Jimenez (15-1, 2.20 ERA)
American: Price (12-4, 2.42 ERA)
ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Ryan Howard is sick of all the talk about the American League’s dominance in the All-Star game.

The Phillies slugger knows all too well it’s been 13 years of AL bragging rights. And, no, that wacky 7-7 tie in 2002 did little to boost NL morale in baseball’s Midsummer Classic.

In this year of the pitcher, the National League is downright loaded, even for an All-Star game with the best of the best coming to Orange County on Tuesday night.

“This should be the year for us to go out there and hopefully end this drought,” Howard said. “I’m getting tired of hearing about the American League winning and how long they’ve won, every year for the last 13 years or whatnot. Basically go out there and try to change it up.”

There’s Colorado 15-game winner Ubaldo Jimenez starting at Angel Stadium. In the bullpen: Marlins ace Josh Johnson, Mr. perfect Roy Halladay and two-time reigning NL Cy Young Award winner Tim Lincecum. And so on.

The AL run is one of the more perplexing streaks in sports. Is it simply a quirk, or evidence of true dominance? The American League has ruled interleague play for several years, and also done well in the World Series, winning four of the last six titles.

You’d think the NL might have caught a break at some point in a span of more than a decade, just getting one ball to bounce its way.

In 2008 at Yankee Stadium, the National League had 15 innings to make it happen and came up short. The previous year in San Francisco, a crazy ball off the wall gave Ichiro Suzuki the first inside-the-park home run in All-Star game history.
WATCH LIVE NOW
With a star-studded lineup of New York Yankees gathered in sunny, surf-crazed Southern California, even the Angels’ infamous rally monkey will probably be rooting for the AL if things are close late in the game.

The last time the NL won was 1996, when the Milwaukee Brewers were still in the AL. Not that many remember the 6-0 NL victory at Philly’s old Veterans Stadium.

“This will be Charlie’s second straight year to try to beat that stupid American League jinx,” Phillies chairman Bill Giles said of the Philadelphia and NL skipper, Charlie Manuel. “Charlie, your job’s on the line, man.”

It was Giles’ father, Warren, the former National League president, who used to enter the NL clubhouse and give fired-up speeches to help rally and ready his players for the All-Star game.

These days, there are graphic monkeys bouncing all over the big screen, Thunderstix and Vuvuzelas — oops, not those noisemakers, they aren’t allowed at Angel Stadium.

CC Sabathia isn’t sure any of that stuff really matters much.

“I can’t say it’s better players,” said the burly Yankees ace, who won’t pitch Tuesday. “It’s just one of those things. What is it, 13 years in a row? It’s pretty much luck I guess.”

A new rule keeps Sabathia and other pitchers who started on Sunday from being on the active roster. Tampa Bay lefty David Price will start Tuesday for the AL.

The NL players believe it’s their turn to finally turn the page on this decade-old drought.

And why not think that way? This game is being played within miles of Disneyland — “Happiest Place on Earth” — where thousands of kids (adults, too) get to dream big every day. Six-foot-tall, baseball-themed Mickey Mouse statues, some painted in stars and wearing caps or holding baseballs, are scattered around town.

“We know everyone’s here to have a good time but at the same time our priority is to win the game,” Jimenez said.

To do so, Jimenez and Co. must hold down an AL lineup featuring Josh Hamilton in the cleanup hole and Vladimir Guerrero batting fifth — with sluggers Alex Rodriguez and David Ortiz as backups for manager Joe Girardi.

Boston’s Big Papi won the Home Run Derby on Monday night, hitting 11 homers in the final round to beat Florida’s Hanley Ramirez.

Beating the AL will be a daunting task indeed. Big swings often decide the game.

Still, with the likes of Albert Pujols and Howard on the NL side, it would look pretty even. “We came back against the National League bullpen in 2003,” said All-Star coach Bud Black of the NL West-leading San Diego Padres. “I can’t explain (the streak). I wish I knew. There’s mutual respect league to league. I don’t think the AL senses any superiority at all. Even going back to my playing days in both leagues there was never that sense.”

Aside from having fun with peers during a short break from the demands of the 162-game schedule, everybody involved wants to shine at the All-Star game. Just do a little something.

Angels center fielder Torii Hunter has plans to make the highlight reels.

“I’m going to take a home run away from somebody and duplicate what I did in 2002 taking a home run away from Barry Bonds,” Hunter said with a grin.

He insists he will crash into the wall to do it if need be.

Home-field advantage for the World Series is on the line.

“Now with what’s at stake,” said NL coach Bruce Bochy of the San Francisco Giants, “the National League needs to stop this.”
