At any time you can go from being a connected 'passive explorer' to an 'active and engaged' Connective Listener, simply by interacting with other listeners, and the live DJs utilizing RadioFlag who want to hear from you. These DJs appreciate the loyal listeners that tune in to them from all over the world. They show it by giving back to their audience in many ways; from Flagging you personal feedback, playing your requests, giving you on air shout outs, offering ticket giveaways, supporting new talent by giving Artists radio airplay, and maybe even sending you some sweet - fun radio station swag.

Here an on-air live being, will recommend your 'new favorite band', showcase your favorite genre, or highlight a topic of personal interest to you, in ways computer algorithm powered services simply don't offer.

✓ RadioFlag serves as an online global community with connectivity, personality and valuable human resources vs. solely being an aggregator of radio stations.

✓ RadioFlag creates a way for new talent of all kinds to self promote, and get radioplay on a global stage in an equitable way vs. 'under the table' pay to play, questionable payola arrangements.

✓ RadioFlag upholds a unified and diverse audience of radio enthusiasts that tune in through its app from most countries around the world, seeking to share, interact and connect with those with similar interests, and others who seek to discover new sounds, interests, and talent from near and far away places vs. a one station only app that limits and isolates listenership, to a single signal in one geographical area.

✓ RadioFlag supports its earliest adopters and most loyal users representing College Radio DJs from across the country and others around the world.
