OMG, OMG, It’s the Debut of “SFGate Radio” from Earbits! – A “Free Online Radio Service Designed to Spotlight Local Musicians”

Wednesday, July 20th, 2011

It’s here, SFGate Radio is finally here, man:

“With Spotify coming to America, Pandora Media debuting on Wall Street, Rdio possibly hooking up with Facebook and Slacker Radio making a splash, the spotlight on online music has never been more intense. Today, SFGate.com jumps into the competition with SFGate Radio, a free online radio service designed to spotlight local musicians and performances. SFGate is the online home of The Chronicle and both are owned by Hearst Communications Inc.”

All the deets:

“Earbits, one of the more recent entrants to the online radio game which raised $605,000 in seed funding last month, has announced a partnership with SFgate.com, home of the San Francisco Chronicle. The service — dubbed SFGate Radio — will allow listeners to find regional shows and focus exclusively on Bay Area artists and those touring through the region.”

Here’s an early review from Bagdad By The Bay.

Hurray?

Give it a try!

So let’s say that you like what Marie Hines sounds and/or looks like – well then you can see that she will perform at a joint on Arguello tonight:

That’s kind of how it works.

Ever more deets, after the jump.
