Remediating radio: Audio streaming, music recommendation and the discourse of radioness
In recent years, the consumption of audio material online has become a significant force in the media landscape. As this is often referred to as radio, we are led to address the way in which this user-defined, personalised experience relates to more traditional discourses of radioness. Are the existing concepts of radio, as deployed, relevant to this form of consumption, or do they serve to create false expectations and structures within the newer formats? This article charts the current and historical conceptions of radio, and compares this with the nature of the various online experiences available, in order to establish the extent to which these can be classified as radio, and to which it is reasonable for them to claim this title.
