    uncomfortable with both its bad song results and its lack of artist support Through the 2000s I drifted from service to service online Rhapsody Imeem Lala iTunes eMusic I tried them all But somehow despite the cool music platform that the web had become something was missing Some days it was enough and I found treasures but most days it felt a bit cold clinical Listening to music on these services was mostly clean and efficient but it wasn t all that entertaining and it certainly wasn t magical These were algorithms and applications not good friends crafting music experiences The human element was missing For the first time in years I found myself missing the old WNEW FM Then in 2011 I found Slacker Slacker would have seemed like an impossible dream to the eighteen year old me It worked everywhere On my computer on my phone in my car Best of all is the curation At Slacker I have more than 200 pre programmed stations to choose from Sure there are the expected genre stations Today s Hits New Hip Hop Country and an excellent slate of Alternative stations But Slacker also digs really deep with Eclectic Rock G reat Songs You Forgot Old School R B and Grunge 20 Years Later These are thematic stations that terrestrial radio could never dream of With Slacker I can access the biggest hits or reinvent the concept of formats on a daily basis Only people who live and breathe music every day could come up with stations like Dive Bar Jukebox Broken Heart Radio or The 50 Most Embarrassing Facebook Songs No algorithm in the world can put a music mix together like these stations With Slacker I am able to follow hosts like Mat Bates and Scott Riggs whose expert curation routinely blows me away I love Scott s Indie Hits mix and I find Mat s New Music First stations invaluable I really couldn t live without The New 40 the Slacker station that plays the best 40 songs regardless of genre each and every week Yet as good at turning me on to music as Mat and Scott are I love being able to overrule them to have more power than the DJ to take a good station and make it better I can fine tune any station by tweaking the music mix based on related artists song popularity and song age Fine tune is an extremely cool feature I can add sports from ESPN news from ABC and talk from American Public Media At Slacker I have total control of a music library of more than 13 million songs I can lean in and make custom playlists I can lean back by simply typing a band or song name into the Search box and just let the music play For a guy who spent days as a kid making mixed tapes this seems unbelievably fast efficient and wondrous Most important at Slacker I feel like the

    this really is the start of a golden era I grew up in Manhattan in the late 70 s When I was a kid every Saturday I would walk from my apartment on 53 rd street and 1 st avenue to the Donnell Library on 53 rd street and 6th avenue to read Billboard I especially was focused on pouring over the charts and spent countless hours discovering songs artists and trends to pursue based on Billboard s charts During that walk I often made up dream music scenarios for myself Things like I dreamed I had the largest music collection in the world In my fantasy I had every song album and artist at my fingertips True in that era I imagined converting my Mom s midtown one bedroom apartment into one enormous record and cassette library but that s how childhood dreaming goes I wanted my stereo to be able to count every song and artist I played and tell me truly what my most played songs and artists were I imagined some kind of song kind of song counter connected to my stereo I wanted the data even then I dreamed of having my own radio station I wanted to be able to play The Ramones Smokey Robinson Grandmaster Flash Elton John Miles Davis Joni Mitchell The Grateful Dead The Talking Heads and Big Daddy Kane all on one station I wanted no formats Actually I wanted my own format I walked around with reams of paper with all sorts of stations and playlists mapped out documenting these concepts I fantasized about building a Music Clubhouse I envisioned a cross between a rock club and the perfect mom and pop record store dominated by a gigantic listening room equiped with a world class stereo and video set up so that all my friends could hang out and argue about music all day long Naturally I knew that we would have all the liner notes and lyrics for every album in the world at the Music Clubhouse as well as an unlimited supply of photos bio information and videos again all at our fingertips When I flash back on those music fantasies and then think about all the experiences available now across these subscription music streaming services I realize that fantasy has largely become reality These companies have built these new music experiences from a fan s perspective Think about it just about every song album and artist is available at your fingertips At certain services you really do have almost unlimited ability to create your own radio stations You really can an engage with all your friends online at once and in ways thanks to technology that I couldn t even imagine in my best childhood music fantasies Lyrics liner notes your most played data all of these things are available And I truly believe this is just the START This On Demand Songs Chart documents what has the potential to be a great era for music
