Briefly stated, Utah Internet Radio gives local music a home. Listeners can hear music they wouldn't find on the regular radio, and bands can gain exposure they may not get without being signed to a record label. This is best illustrated by the diagrams below:
Utah Internet Radio gives all bands an equal chance to be heard. The music is not chosen by broadcasting companies or record labels--it's uploaded by local bands and brought directly to the public.
Utah Internet Radio is free for listeners and free for bands. Advertising is what keeps it free. However, Utah Internet Radio does not play commercials between songs. Instead, advertisements are displayed where they can be viewed without interfering with the music.
