Today’s digital music services offer very little differentiation in content and features, they rely on algorithms for programming and deliver what we see as an emotionless and solitary experience. The personal connection to music, the community, and the discovery from trusted sources have been forgotten and the passionate fan ignored. These fans are highly valuable - they are loyal and we calculate that they spend 4X what the average music consumer spends. Gimme Radio has found a way to serve these millions of underserved fans. We build new music experiences on a genre by genre basis that focuses on what the fan values: access to a community of like-minded fans, true music discovery from trusted sources, direct contact with high-profile DJs and artists, and multiple ways to support the music and artist they love.
On June 29th, 2017, Gimme Radio launched its first proof of concept, a 24/7 metal focused service where metal fans tune in to hear world-class DJs - like Grammy award winning Dave Mustaine of Megadeth, Jessica Pimentel (star of Orange is the New Black), and Randy Blythe of Lamb of God.
This proof of concept is working and Gimme just launched a monthly subscription tier of Gimme Radio.
Gimme Radio looks to launch its second genre, Country, in Q2 of 2019. The next step in building a network of fan communities in all genres.
