Mixcloud: joining the dots between radio shows, Podcasts and DJ mixes

"Quite simply, Mixcloud helps connect radio content to listeners more effectively. Mixcloud is re–thinking radio by joining the dots between radio shows, Podcasts and DJ mixes. We refer to them as Cloudcasts – audio shows that are stored in the 'cloud' and available to be streamed on–demand.

A Cloudcast is an extended audio show that is hosted in the 'cloud', in other words hosted somewhere centrally on the Internet rather than on your local hard–drive. Therefore, unlike Podcasts, Cloudcasts can be enjoyed via on–demand streaming without any waiting required. ...

Mixcloud is a legal platform for on–demand radio shows, Podcasts and DJ mixes which contain copyrighted music. The only licensing option available at present is a streaming format, and Mixcloud is committed to providing a legal option which supports artists and ensures they receive royalties for the shows and mixes which contain music. In addition, the site can keep track of what you (and your friends) listen to, so we can make better recommendations and provide a more personalised site tuned to exactly what you like to hear."
