RAIN 8/17: Car-maker Scion launches 17 web radio streams

Posted on: 08/17/2011

STATIONS NOT SCION’S FIRST FORAY INTO NET RADIO

Scion A/V — the creative division of car-maker Scion — has launched 17 Internet radio stations. The channels are non-customizable Live365 streams and include exclusive artist interviews as well as music. Each station focuses on a different music format, ranging from metal to dance to hip-hop, indie rock and reggae.

The new Scion A/V Streaming Radio can be found on Scion A/V’s Facebook page here. Users can embed stations as widgets. Find out more about the stations from Scion A/V’s press release here.

This isn’t Scion’s first foray into Internet radio. They launched Scion Radio 17 — along with an iPhone app that generated playlists based on BPM — back in 2009 (RAIN coverage here). From the look of Scion’s old websites, these earlier stations may have been around as late as November 2010.

Scion’s 2012 xB model includes dashboard support for Pandora via a connected smartphone (RAIN coverage here). No word on whether Scion plans to bring A/V Stream Radio into its dashboards.

8TRACKS, TURNTABLE.FM AMONG TIME‘S BEST WEBSITES OF 2011

Two streaming music sites, 8tracks and Turntable.fm, are listed among Time Magazine‘s 50 Best Websites of 2011.

The former is a mixtape service, where users upload their own music to build mini playlists. The much-publicized Turntable.fm is user-driven Internet radio with a strong emphasis on social features (more here).

Congratulations to My Damn Channel, which also made the list. The video site is run by the same folks who write the Radio and Music Pros (RAMP) newlsetter.
