The station began in early 2000 to the call of people who deserved more access to great music in genres like EBM, Industrial, Synthpop and Darkwave. The name EBM Radio was getting used before long, it seemed like a good idea to try Live365 to be able to service the number of people who needed their fix and EBM-Radio.com became a founding member. At the time there was only so much bandwidth to go around for Shoutcast connections and Live365 seemed like a good alternative.
Officially becoming “EBM-Radio.com” January 2002, due to a lack of creativity in naming but a need to get a proper name and website considering the rate that the stream’s popularity was increasing.
Having gone through many stages of evolution and operating out of pocket on a not for profit basis with zero sources of revenue of any kind aside from the rare and comparatively small but much appreciated donations here or there of money and/or music – as of now, I’ve almost died more times than we can count and with my health temporarily improving it’s time to get some momentum back as we approach about 20 here pretty soon!
We’ve been supporting the industry and artists every way possible and don’t plan on stopping any time soon.
