All Day Play was created to provide an alternative to commercial radio. The station is programmed by DJs and musicians who push the envelope, including D-Sharp, Sake 1, Zumbi, Vinroc, and Davey D, as well as crews like the Wild’n'Krazy Kids, FingerFaderFunk (The Bangerz, the Oakland Faders, and 4OneFunk), the AmazingZooCrew, and Sweaterfunk.
AllDayPlay.FM stories and interviews have featured top Bay Area and international artists including Casual, Erk the Jerk, Bilal, Mistah F.A.B., Sonnymoon, IAMSU!, DaVinci, Little Dragon, Trackademicks, Coultrain, Moe Green, the Jealous Guys and Wajeed.
“It’s just not possible to get this kind of feng shui out of terrestrial radio. The new app will be an excellent way for folks to explore new music,” says Bay Area DJ Zumbi (Zion-I).
AllDayPlay.FM is hosted by the award-winning youth media company Youth Radio. Youth Radio’s high school interns are part of the publishing and promotions staff of AllDayPlay.FM, and it was these young interns who created the app’s prototype. Using App Inventor, a tool launched by Google and now housed at the famed MIT Media Lab, young people working in Youth Radio’s Mobile Action Lab conceptualized and created the app. Programming was provided by Drew Mason, with optimization from Kollective Mobile.
Built on the Android platform, the app features streaming playback of Youth Radio’s programming which consists of top notch DJ’s from around the Bay Area.
