New DAR.fm function allows listeners to share audio snippets from talk radio

Monday, February 18, 2013 - 12:10pm

DAR.fm is the online radio service that allows users to record streamed audio content to listen to later (like a DVR, but with audio, thus the service's name). DAR creater Michael Robertson has now introduced a "sharing" function he says caters to the Internet's "short McNugget-size" media appetite.

While listening, DAR.fm users can click a Share button to select a short segment to to upload to YouTube, along with a short description, and then share the link to the snippet on social media.

"Rarely does one see links to interesting radio bits on Facebook or Twitter," Robertson wrote in his blog, introducing what he's calling "Project Friendship" (yep, as in "My Little Pony"). "For the first time it's as easy to share a radio clip as it is a web page, picture or video clip."

Deal brings audio recording and time-shifting tech to IBS college and high school stations

Friday, May 11, 2012 - 12:25pm

DAR.fm has partnered with Net radio platform provider Backbone Networks to provide time-shifting and recording technology to the nation's largest network of college and high school radio stations.

Now, Backbone announces, "sporting events, news and other community focused programs can be captured and then played back at a convenient time for listeners on PCs, smartphones or tablets making it accessible to a wider audience."

DAR.fm (think "DVR," but with "A" for audio instead of "V" for video) is entrepreneur Michael Robertson's company which enables online radio listeners to schedule and record live content for listening at different times and/or on other devices (much like a DVR works for television). Robertson was a panelist at our recent RAIN Summit West event. See video of his panel (and all the Summit content) here.

The Intercollegiate Broadcasting System is a not-for-profit association of educational institution-based broadcasters and webcasters. Its IBS Student Radio Network is operated by Backbone Networks.
