ABOUT US, OUR SUPPLIERS, LICENSING FEES & OUR LISTENERS
24/7 Online Radio GROUP
In the summer of 2015, the 24/7 Online Radio Group launched two international online radio stations providing music 24/7. However, as our radio service provider and station owner, As Radionomy, was closing down its royalty fee paying service, we closed down those stations down in late 2019. We had a relaunch and in December, 2019 we set up Classical Radio International and Jazz Radio International. with a new streaming provider, Zeno Media. We now run 20 stations playing licensed music with a wide range of genres from jazz and classical music to Lofi and Synthwave.
Our stations provide listeners with quality 64K online streams. This is a careful balance between quality and relatively low bandwidth.
In the section below, we provide details of our services, partners and suppliers. You will notice that they are based in countries around the world which we believe is most appropriate for a provider of international online web-radio stations.
We use One.com for hosting this website as they provide a reliable, high quality and friendly service. One.com is uses Anycast DNS. This solution contributes to provide all customers access to a reliable and fast name server network, distributed across various data centers around the world.
One.com has registered companies in Denmark and Dubai, although they also have sales offices in Germany, the United Kingdom and Holland. Since the foundation of One.com (B-one) in 2002 by Jacob Jensen, One.com has experienced constant growth and has today more than 1,000,000 customers in 149 countries. It has achieved a wide recognition in some of the web-hosting industry’s most thorough and demanding tests. One.com has developers, engineers and support teams in Dubai, India and Denmark.
So who listens to our 24/7 Online Radio stations? As an international station provider we attract an audience from around the world. However, please note that our stations are not available in all countries.

On New Year’s Day, 2019, we launched our official Mixcloud radio cloudcasts. Our radio shows are listed on this podcast page and our 24/7 Online Radio mixcloud website. Launched on New Year’s Day, 2019, these podcasts are an advertising free zone! Just great music. (Royalties are paid by Mixcloud for the music on the cloudcasts.)
CENTRE FOR MUSIC PSYCHOLOGY
24/7 Online Radio is interested in how listening to music could improve wellbeing. In January, 2019 we launched the Centre for Music Psychology to focus on this area of research. Part-time Director of the Centre is Prof Stephen Palmer.
ROYALTY FREE MUSIC
On our Mixcloud cloudcasts and podcasts we are able to use most music recordings. Mixcloud has arranged international royalty agreements with performing rights organizations which collects license fees on behalf of songwriters, composers, and music publishers and distributes them as royalties to their members when their works have been performed. However, for small webcasters and internet radio stations providing a 24/7 stream over the internet and/or in mobile phone apps, the international situation has in recent years become more challenging since most internet radio service providers no longer provide a full international licensing arrangement. If they do offer agreements, it is uncertain if they cover all countries around the world.
With our previous internet radio service provider and streaming owner, Radionomy, (who paid various performing rights organizations fees), closing down this particular service on the 30 December, 2019, we took the decision to take a different approach. In January, 2020, we transferred over to playing music which we had obtained licences and agreements from copyright holders to stream their completely Royalty Free Music which gives us greater freedom to play our choice of music without restrictions.
