The Only African-American, Woman-Owned and Operated Internet Radio Station is Launched

San Francisco, California (PRWEB) May 15, 2005 -- Baybop Radio is
launched as the first African-American, woman-owned and operated radio
station in the world. Mixing streaming technology and music, founder
and owner Adrienne Anderson programs music by independent artists and
features endangered music or music that wouldnt normally be heard
on todays radio.

Started in June of 2004, Baybop Radios audience has grown. Artists
like
indie Seattle rappers Optimus Rhyme and underground folk artist Edith
Frost are in regular rotationsomething youd never find on Top Ten
radio. San Francisco-native Adrienne Anderson knows the public is ready
for the next wave in radio streaming. Better equipment and better home
computers have revolutionized how people hear music.
People cant listen to their iPods at work, or keep rotating their
CDs.

What are they doing? Plugging into Internet radio, says Adrienne. Sick
of hearing the same music and a lot of commercials, Baybop Radio is
ahead of the pack with its creative programming and minimal
commercials. Baybop Radio is streamed through Live 365.com. In June
2005, Baybop Radio will be expanding because the number of listeners
keeps growing.
