In the summer of 2015, the 24/7 Online Radio Group produced two online radio stations providing music 24/7. The stations were owned by Radionomy who paid the music royalties. However, as the radio service provider and station owner, Radionomy, was closing down its royalty fee paying service, they 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. We now run 20 stations playing sounds of nature and 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.
Also in 2019 for our friends, followers and the music loving community we launched our 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 podcasts.)
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 digital 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.

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. Music is international and travels across cultures. Therefore, we strongly support the UN International Jazz Day.

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 the internet radio service providers no longer provide a full licensing arrangement. If they do offer agreements, it is uncertain if they cover all countries around the world.
With our previous internet radio service providers, Radionomy, (who paid various performing rights organizations fees), closing down on the 30 December, 2019, we have taken the decision to take a different approach.
In January, 2020, when we set up our own stations, we transferred over to playing music that is Performing Rights Organisation (PRO) Free. Sometimes described as Royalty Free Music, the composer-musicians who have created the music provide a license which gives us greater freedom to play our choice of music without restrictions. They are not members of a PRO.
