"It’s exciting and fun to have an audio-only platform that can be so spontaneous and spur of the moment. We really like the potential for being able to jump on to share something new, old, planned or improvised, whatever, whenever."
- Deakin of Animal Collective

Blast Radio operates kind of like an Instagram for audio. You create a personalized profile, which your fans can follow. Whenever you stream, followers get a push notification to tune in. Get the app here or scroll to the bottom of this page to learn more about the platform.
As a streamer, you also get a personalized web player address (blastradio.com/YourUsername) to add to your website, post on social, or send directly to people.
If someone has the app, the links takes them to your profile. If they don't have the app, it takes them to a web page where they can tune in. See an example of a web player here.
Download past streams as lossless .wav files and upload them to any platform you want.
- Download past streams from your profile
- We email you a lossless .wav file
- Upload it to any platform you choose
One reason creators love Blast Radio is that streams are only available to listeners for 24-hours before they expire. The ephemerality of the platform creates a low-pressure environment to share audio without worrying about it being perfectly planned out, polished, and edited.
That said, those low-pressure streams often turn out really great – and when they do, you will likely want to get more life out of them. An easy way to do that is to upload them to other audio platforms.
It's easy to do. Simply swipe left on a past broadcast from the app, tap dowload, and we will email you the lossless .wav file.

What streamers are saying:
“I’m always searching for ways to connect with fans. Whether I’m jamming in the studio or playing a DJ set, I need an effortless way to broadcast my music, instantly. Blast Radio has now made that process extremely simple.”
“On Blast Radio, I can broadcast what I care about right now, and do so in an environment built for high resolution audio - where it sounds great, isn’t restricted by low res algorithms, and isn’t competing against a world of curated selfies and cat videos.”
“I’m constantly creating, listening to, and playing new music. The simplicity of pressing one button to share that music is an amazing concept. Then add the premium sound quality and this is a game changer. Because the content disappears in 24 hours, I'm comfortable sharing works-in-progress or unreleased material and letting listeners come on the journey with me.”
Jesse Hughs, Eagles of Death Metal
“Artists have been chasing a way to share analog content in a digital world for years. With Blast Radio, that problem is solved. I can broadcast audio that sounds incredible with one button. The opportunities here are endless.”
Deakin, Animal Collective
“It’s exciting and fun to have an audio-only platform that can be so spontaneous and spur of the moment. We really like the potential for being able to jump on to share something new, old, planned or improvised, whatever, whenever. I really appreciate the minimal approach to feedback as well. It brings the focus to the broadcasting and the listening. In some ways I feel that actually opens up the door to more intimacy for the performer and for the listener."
Alan Pierson, Conductor, Alarm Will Sound.
"With so many musicians working together to create music, there's a lot of evolution that happens even from one rehearsal to the next. In the past, we've opened rehearsals to the public and received great feedback from listeners that want to share in the process of our creation. We're excited to use Blast Radio to give that same experience to more people around the world."
