    ◎線上音樂串流媒體平台Radical.fm(也被稱為Radical Indie)宣布關閉,已於上週末下線並準備出售其資產。執行長Thomas McAlevey在一份聲明中表示「雖然我們有品質以及有用戶和股東的支持,不過Radical只是缺乏可以自己充分發揮這項技術潛力的力量」。

    ◎Radical.fm自2013年開始營運,經過了各種迭代。2015年它重新推出了一個沒有廣告和訂閱費用的個人化廣播平台,要求用戶透過「付出你想要的」捐贈模式做出貢獻。

    ◎該服務一直讓用戶有機會主持自己的廣播電台,並可選擇將歌曲與講話混合穿插,並通過文字聊天與聽眾互動。McAlevey之前曾在瑞典斯德哥爾摩成立了一家廣播電台,並於2000年推出了早期的線上廣播服務。

    Online music streaming platform Radical.fm, also known as Radical Indie, is closing its doors and putting its assets up for sale: Radical announced its closure Friday, and is set to go offline over the weekend.

    “Despite our quality, and the support of our users and shareholders, Radical simply lacks the muscle to reach the full potential of this tech on our own,” said CEO Thomas McAlevey in a statement.

    Radical.fm had been operating under a variety of iterations since 2013. In 2015, it relaunched as a personalized radio platform without advertising and subscription fees, asking users to instead contribute with a “pay what you want” donation model.

    The service had been giving users a chance to host their own radio stations, complete with the option to mix songs with voice-overs and interact with audiences with text chat. McAlevey had previously founded a radio station in Stockholm, Sweden, and also launched an early online radio service in 2000.
