This week, we’re introducing you to E3 Radio: Queer Radio Done Right. E3 Radio is an online radio network, created by Anna DeShawn in 2009, that produces authentically-edgy radio streams from a queer point of view. Their three pillars are to educate, empower, & entertain.
Can you briefly describe your project and the origins of E3 Radio?
E3 Radio is an online radio network curated from a queer point of view. We celebrate black, brown & queer music by not only providing a platform to be heard on, but also by playing the music in higher rotation. E3 was born out of a need for more visibility.
How did you hear about RadioKing?
I’d been searching for a platform where we could broadcast 24/7 and be heard all the time. We also needed a platform that provided us with the ability to curate, brand, and control what gets played. RadioKing was a great fit!
In your opinion, what are the essential features that RadioKing offers to a radio station?
We really value the ability to use tags in our playlists. The many features of the Radio Manager are extremely robust and really give us a lot of control over our programming.
What’s your target audience?
Our primary target audience is black, brown & queer folks who enjoy good music. In addition, we target people who want to hear something different than your traditional FM/AM stations.
What do you enjoy the most about this project?
Giving artists a platform to be heard on!
What’s next for E3 Radio?
An app. That’s all I can say for now but we are really excited about it!
To finish off, a word of advice for those who want to start their radio adventure?
