Radio Paradise is Old Fashioned Radio for the 21st Century
Each hour of music is carefully blended together to flow smoothly between different musical styles & genres - just like real DJs used to do on FM. We don't use the computer-generated playlists or "carefully researched music libraries" that have sucked the soul out of FM radio - and we never just throw songs together at random the way many web stations do.
We also depend on input from you to help fine-tune our music mix. If you hear something that you feel strongly about (either positively or negatively), please take a moment to post a comment on that song. Just click the song title on the playlist page or in the "Now Playing" display in the upper right corner. We'd also love to hear from you if there's an artist you don't hear, but think would fit in with our music mix. Registered users can upload suggested additions to the library for review.
If you have questions about RP, you can email us via the links below - but check our FAQ page first. It contains answers to a lot of the most frequently-asked questions about RP.
We'd also like you to keep in mind that we get a lot of email every day. We appreciate email that is brief (like 2 - 3 sentences) and to the point.

Radio Paradise is located in Paradise, California (hence the name...). Paradise is a peaceful little town in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains, far from the big city stress & turmoil. Hopefully we'll help to bring a little Paradise into your life, wherever you're located.
The station is run using an innovative programming automation system designed by Radio Paradise's Bill Goldsmith. The actual music servers are located in San Jose & San Diego, CA and in New York and can be remotely controlled from our Paradise studio or from anywhere else in the world via a laptop.
Our audio relay servers are located in New York, Chicago, San Diego, Dallas, Germany, Australia and many other places around the globe. They all feature high-speed redundant Internet connections to keep the music flowing smoothly.
