MeTV, the destination for nostalgic programming, has announced the new MeTV Music streaming service now playing on MeTV.com. MeTV Music is a free music companion to MeTV, showcasing the best in timeless and memorable popular music.
MeTV Music, launching in association with AccuRadio, is the first ever music-streaming companion to MeTV and will be programmed with the same emphasis on timeless appeal. With a library that is thousands of tracks deep, featured will be hits, hummable favorites and many songs that traditional music outlets have long forgotten about. As a dedicated streaming music player, MeTV Music will allow listeners to log on from the MeTV.com homepage and enjoy music on their personal computer or laptop. Listeners can skip or pause songs, rate tracks and get detailed information on each song as it plays. And unlike traditional radio, MeTV Music will stream songs with limited commercial interruptions.
“MeTV Music brings back so many of the artists and songs that terrestrial radio has stopped playing because they ‘skew older’ or are unfamiliar to today’s program directors,” said Neal Sabin, Vice Chairman of Weigel Broadcasting Co. “Our Chicago MeTV FM station has proved there is an audience for this music with ‘hipsters, hippies, boomers and beyond.’ Now we are making a similar product available nationally via MeTV.com. The wow factor will hit you hard when you spend time with MeTV Music.”
The collection of musical artists will include Billy Joel, Carole King, Aretha Franklin, Elton John, The Carpenters, Diana Ross and The Supremes, Simon and Garfunkel, Chicago, Hall and Oates, The Four Seasons and The Eagles.
