WHAT DO WE OFFER? René [2] : "Throughout the years our 'chefs' gained many stars from their broadcasting peers and Radio Listeners. They scored over 18k 'faves' from TuneIn listeners alone and have over 2k followers on Facebook. Listening to a radio station is a totally different experience than playing an album on your own. Radio listeners are always busy doing something else while our stream is on. Our radio format focuses on American songbook listeners throughout the world, who listen to their beloved music genre while carrying on with their everyday things such as eating, working, driving, cycling, athletics, cleaning, or even sitting in the waiting room of a doctor's office. We all know this from the listeners' feedback we've received".

THE SELECTION. "Is made by a small committee with an extensive background in process and a matter of professional taste. Personal preferences are not considered. Our menus are served in various tempos and settings, using a variety of instruments and arrangements. Our intention is to regularly surprise our listeners with unusual renditions of well-known songs by lesser-known performers. But, the icing on the cake is the streaming quality of the music itself, and luckily we possess the technical knowledge and the right tools to achieve this. But, we are continually striving for improvement. It’s never 100% finished, you know …”

THE SONGTITLES Jennifer: [3] "Our playlist comes from our 'Music Library' of over 17k carefully selected songs. These renditions are included along with other formatted items like: new album releases, vintage (sung or comic) radio commercials, internally produced station promos and the current Central Park temperature. Special attention is always paid to the Chairman of the Board, Francis Albert Sinatra! Without his existence this radio station would never have been born. This combination of music and features combines the feel and experience of its Manhattan base.

HOW OUR PLAYLIST WORKS. “We have selected renditions recorded by over 2200 artists and groups. Our system then selects them at random with the aid of a template. This template distinguishes female, male, duos, vocal groups and instrumental renditions. It picks a certain rendition just once and remembers that this certain song & artist combination is played. After our whole music library is played, this 'already played list' gets cleared and the database restarts, but at random again. The frequency of how often a certain artist is played also depends on the number of songs by this artist in our database. Special artist or album promotions, on the hour jingles, GAS radio promos, our vintage radio commercials and the real-time Manhattan Central Park temperatures run on a minute-based schedule."

OUR TOP 30 René: [2] "Our top American Songbook Song Stylists are: Frank Sinatra, Peggy Lee, Nat King Cole, Matt Monro, John Pizzarelli, Ella Fitzgerald, Mel Tormé, Dean Martin, Sarah Vaughan, Diana Krall, Anita O'Day, Nancy Wilson, The Four Freshmen, Doris Day, Julie London, Carmen McRae, Sammy Davis Jr., Rosemary Clooney, Steve Lawrence, Tony Bennett, Perry Como, Bobby Darin, Jack Jones, June Christy, Bing Crosby, Steve Tyrell, Andy Williams, Keely Smith, Vic Damone, Dinah Washington. Yes; only a few of these names are still with us. But, 20% of our 'Artist Top 300' were born after 1960 and still alive today. Our database system also looks at artist names. The exact same names are not played again within 60 minutes. This restriction doesn’t apply to songs by Ol' Blue Eyes."
