After a preview at the Coachella music festival in California, Clear Channel Radio debuted its erockster.com library this week.
The collection of on-air, online and on-demand content is aimed at 13–34 year olds, and will reach some 5,000 songs over the next month, adding 1,000 songs per week.
erockster.com content streams online; starting May 2 it also will stream from Los Angeles station KYSR(FM), Washington’s WWDC(FM) and Philadelphia’s WRFF(FM), and be made available as an HD2 channel. As additional stations are added, the show will be syndicated as a two-hour program for FM stations.
Listeners can influence what gets played by signing on to the site to register preferences.
Producer Eric Szmanda (who plays Greg Sanders on “CSI”) said the service gives fans an outlet to listen to a variety of music, discuss bands, concerts “and really anything that we have an opinion or comment on that’s music-related.”
