LOCAL MUSIC DISCOVERY
We introduce you to local artists based on the music you already enjoy.
We'll be launching in Spring 2016 in Ithaca, NY.

Our primary goal is to promote the work of local artists by contextualizing their music with songs by more well-known artists.
Another goal of ours is to provide users with the most amazing music listening experience in the world. This is done by giving our users more control over their experience by providing novel interactive design features. We also utilize the data we collect from our users to feedback into our intelligent playlist algorithms.
Right now, we are focused on the community in Ithaca, NY but we have plans to launch MegsRadio in other locations with active local music scenes.
To learn more about the philosophy behind MegsRadio, check out our TEDx Talk.
