New onrad.io tool helps listeners share songs

A new website based in the United States will help people find and play any song currently playing on the radio.

OnRad.io has been created by Michael Robertson, who also founded MP3.com. It is designed to make online radio more discoverable while enabling users on messaging apps to share music instantly.

The new search technology tracks free online radio stations every second and determines what songs are being played at that exact moment. This technology opens up a vast library of popular songs, all of which can be searched, found and played in real time.

“Because Google doesn’t index online radio streams, radio is invisible to searchers and radio companies are missing out on more than 100 million users per day,” says Michael. “Our goal at OnRad.io is to make it one-click easy to find any song playing on the radio and to easily share those songs with friends, this ultimately drives more listeners to the great content on radio.”
