We are a listener-supported, internet-music radio station. Our mission is to search out and expose great new music to people who otherwise may never encounter it.
Since June 2016 our Streams have broadcasted content to over 402,577 listener connections.
The world of on-demand music streaming has never been more crowded. As more and more listeners shy away from physical recordings in favor of massive online music libraries, music streaming services keep popping up, each offering a varied amount of songs, features, and its own quirks. But only MPG Radio has a choice few that has what it takes to join our rotations of the best music streaming services that stick to traditional no cost music where you have the opportunity to listen to unsigned independent artists.
STREAM SPINNER and Tweets

Stream Tweet is a social media tool that auto "Tweets our Stream" when a specific artists music is played directly to twitter feeds. Any Artist included in our music rotation on any station that has a twitter account can subscribe to re-tweet their music when their music is played until you choose to stop the service; Twitter followers will be able to discover your music anytime when played on our station. We encourage you to consider this service.
Stream Spinner for Internet Radio Stations provides a feed of your stations streams on Stream Spinner feeds. To make this happen you will need a couple of things. 1. Twitter Keys and access tokens to send secure requests to the Twitter API. 2. Live Streams addresses to work with Stream Spinners TwitterOAuth library.
LISTENERSHIP and Music Placement and Duration
MPG Radio selects one composition from each artist placed in rotation on the Innovative Music Mix Stream (aka-Blended Music Mix). The criteria for music placement and duration is decided by listener-ship. To this end we reduce our play-list size and make available optional services on the Innovative Music Mix Stream. All other music remains on the stream stations that align with its music genre; Rock Town Lounge, Reflection Town, Metal Revolution, Digital City and Rebel Roads with multiple songs submissions by artists.
All Streams are subject to listener-ship placement and duration, this allows us to build a better play-lists to sort popular music and promote music that listener-ship desires.
From this process, music that qualifies will remain on streams stations that align with its music genre and selections that do not qualify will migrate to a New Stream Archive. This archive is the placement for music that has not received listener-ship.
How does music return from the archive? All streams will remain published and promoted through Stream Spinner and Stream Tweet services to remain open for opportunity to generate active listener-ship; when active listener-ship occurs, listened music transfers from the archive stream to appropriate genres bringing the music back to Rock Town Lounge, Reflection Town, Metal Revolution, Digital City or Rebel Roads streams.
