Station manager Solar Jenkins explains, “My Soul Radio is an internet radio station that primarily targets urban/black listeners. We feel that we have a strong advantage over our terrestrial cousin merely by the fact we can be broadcast to computers and other devices located in far-reaching parts of the world. We are the station that is keeping you connected to the old, the new, and the now!”
Urban contemporary radio stations feature a play-list made up entirely of Hip Hop/Rap, Contemporary R&B, Pop, Electronica, Caribbean, and NeoSoul. Urban contemporary was developed through the characteristics of genres such as R&B and Soul. Virtually all Urban contemporary formatted radio stations are located in cities that have sizable African-a.m.erican populations, such as; Los Angeles, New York, Atlanta, Dallas Fort Worth, Houston-Galveston, Philadelphia, Washington D.C., Detroit, Miami, Fort Lauderdale and Chicago. My Soul Radio will focus on those markets, as well as, markets that may not have a sizable African-American population. Urban Contemporary music is worldwide. Currently My Soul Radio is experiencing heavy listeners in Norway, Germany, Canada, and the Islands.
“What also makes us different from terrestrial radio is that we can play a larger variety of music and we are not told what to play, when to play, or who to play. When listening to music there should be a flow and not be so robotic. We are not saying that terrestrial will go away, but we do feel that we are giving people another option to hear great music” said Solar Jenkins.
There is another element to My Soul Radio. “Independent artists will get a chance to be heard! According to Solar Jenkins, “With shows like Love of Spoken Word & NeoSoul, hosted by Indie Soul writer Phinesse Demps, where the emphasis is on the Indie artist. We are accepting music, but they must fit a certain criteria for it to be played on the station.”
