SOMA FM San Francisco
Show: Groove Salad / Ambient, Electronica, Chillout
It’s a great honor to finally welcome this very special radio guest this year: The mother of all web radio stations. SOMA FM is the brainchild of Rusty Hodge, a pioneer, activist and fanatical music lover from San Francisco. Already back in the 80’s he developed software for broadcasters and in 1999 was one of the first to start his own radio station exclusively via the internet (commercial-free and listener-supported).
Today SOMA FM comprises more than 20 unique channels which serve specific genres that are rarely heard on commercial radio or are „not being done right“ according to Hodge. The most popular channel is „Groove Salad“. Here you have Rusty Hodge in person digging in his vast crates of ambient, down tempo and world beat records reaching over 4000 average current listeners.
