To use the radio's webpage you first must have a HTML5 compatible web browser, such as Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Safari or Internet Explorer version 10+. If you're having trouble you can download one of the playlist files and open it using a desktop media player or your mobile device's music app. You can also use TuneIn's app, available for most devices.

When did the radio start?
I got the idea of creating a internet radio in late 2014 after making a huge Idolmaster music playlist, so I could listen to it anywhere. I commented my idea in 4chan /a/ and people was very enthusiastic about it. After some time it was finally launched in January 1 2015.
What software do you use in the radio?
The stream is generated with Liquidsoap, then broadcasted with Icecast2. The webpage was developed using Flask, a lightweight Python web framework, which is served by nginx. The front end was developed with Skeleton, a minimalist CSS framework. All source code is available in Github under the Do What The Fuck You Want to Public License.
How are songs selected?
I try to include every song, excepting duplicated songs sung by multiple idols, talk radio sections (ironic isn't it?) and instrumentals. If you think a particular song is missing contact me and I'll add it.
