Why listen to RTDS?

Radio these days has become a recycling machine – the same songs, played endlessly all day, burning them out.  Even so called ‘classic rock’ plays pretty much the same stuff all the time, satellite is a bit better, but they still have tight playlists.  Want some variety? Bored with your eyePod?  Want to be surprised and entertained at the same time?!

RTDS is true free form radio/format free radio.  We hand assemble our shows, and provide YOU with one of the deepest libraries on the planet.  And we don’t just announce the tracks, we give you the back story – why the track matters…our Music Directors never tell the hosts what to play, they have complete freedom to tell a musical story in whatever amount of time it takes to complete the story.  Alternate versions of albums, B sides, rarities, solo work from classic artists…there’s a reason more and more people are demanding radio that doesn’t suck.  That’s why we’re here…try us, you might just never listen to anything else again!
