Sub Pop launches internet radio station

By Katharine Schwab / Seattle Times staff writer

Sub Pop, the Seattle-based indie record label known for popularizing grunge music in the ’90s, is jumping on board the streaming radio trend with its own radio station on TuneIn, which hosts more than 100,000 radio stations and caters to more than 50 million monthly active users.

The radio station features music from Sub Pop’s artists with shows such as Subterranean Pop, cheekily described as “What popular music will sound like when Sub Pop takes over,” or Nighttime/Anytime, which is “The thinking person’s Sub Pop.” Others are artist specific or aim to introduce listeners to lesser known Sub Pop music.

As with other digital streaming services, artists will receive royalties when their songs are played and Sub Pop can earn advertising revenue generated by the station.

The station gained 3,000 followers after the launch today. Fans can tune in and subscribe here. Sub Pop music can also be streamed via SoundCloud or last.fm.
