AF Radio is a free Android app which launched early Thursday morning that lets anyone in the world listen to the hottest live Ghanaian radio shows and play back past episodes on demand. Using AF Radio, you can also see and join the online banter around the most controversial radio conversations of the day.
Says Bubunyo Nyavor, CEO of AF Radio: “The modern African radio station has a rich and diverse range of shows, from sports to politics and everything in between. But for modern audiences who’re used to the convenience of today’s digital age, it can be difficult to find and keep up with these great shows. This is where AF Radio excels. By providing a richer digitally native experience, we’re helping our users keep up with their favourite shows, discover fantastic new ones, and plug into the conversations and the hot topics of the day sparked by radio.”
AF Radio has three main benefits:
- Listen to radio shows live – AF Radio lets radio lovers stream radio shows live from anywhere in the world. Users can subscribe to shows and get notified as soon as the show goes live.
- Missed a show? Play it back on demand – When you miss your favourite radio show, you can immediately listen to a recording on AF Radio! AF Radio is the only app in the Google Play Store that allows listeners to play back African radio shows immediately after they air.
- Join the online conversation – AF Radio enriches the radio listening experience by bringing the online chatter about the show into one convenient feed. See a stream of real-time tweets about that show and jump into the conversation right from the app.
AF Radio launches with over 60 shows and over 40 stations, and will continue to work closely with radio stations to delight their audiences.
Petra Aba Asamoah, Head of Station at 3FM 92.7 had this to say: “We’re excited to be partnering with AF Radio to help bring 3FM 92.7’s world-class programing to an even bigger audience. 3 FM 92.7 listeners will be able to stream our shows from anywhere in the world, and we’re excited to be able to instantly refer listeners to past episodes using AF Radio’s unique Playback feature.”
