Krypton Radio Moves to AirTime
  • After running a competing server side software for over four years, Krypton Radio has made the transition to SourceFabric's AirTime.

    Can you hear it? Fandom is singing. And it’s singing through Krypton Radio.

    Krypton Radio was founded in 2009 by movie industry
    veterans Gene Turnbow & Susan Fox along with a small group of
    friends who wanted a sci-fi radio station but couldn’t find one – so
    they made it themselves. Since then the internet-only station has grown
    from a small fan project into a full service radio station and fannish
    news site, and has marched to (and played) a different beat, one defined
    by the fans themselves - and has recently made the change to AirTime.

    “Airtime gives us unparalleled control over what plays when, and has playlist macros we can use to build up our programming block by block. We focus on science fiction, fantasy, steampunk and gaming music, and AirTime gives us the flexibility and reliability we need to build our business on. The station has a distinctive, unique voice now –
    and we use that to help bring worthwhile creative projects before the
    fans, and we help fans find the cool stuff they might not otherwise know
    about. We can connect with generations of people in ways others only
    dream of.”

    Along with the music, talk shows and radio dramas, they
    have a flagship show called The Event Horizon. They describe it as a
    sci-fi convention panel show, but without the convention. Their guests
    are writers, musicians, artists, costumers, filmmakers and other
    creatives from all over the sci-fi world, both pro and fan.  Over thirty-episodes later, its popularity has spawned an
    IndieGogo campaign intended to bring its production crew to various
    conventions across North America so shows can be recorded live with
    special on-the-spot interviews that would never be otherwise possible.

    The Event Horizon airs every Saturday night at 9PM Pacific,
    and has already featured a number of storied guests, such as actors Tim
    Russ (”Tuvok” from Star Trek:Voyager) & Bruce Boxleitner (”Capt.
    Sheridan” from Babylon 5, “Tron” from Tron, and science fiction novelist
    heavyweights David Gerrold & Jody Lynn Nye.

    You can listen to Krypton Radio on iTunes under Radio ->
    Eclectic, on TuneIn, on the Krypton Radio page on or just
    straight from their their web site. They even have an Android app, and
    they’re the only sci-fi station in the world of any kind to have one.

    The station’s log line is “Sci-Fi for your Wi-Fi.”

    amazing. We help people all over the world listen to music and shows

    ever hear, produced by fans for fans.
