A new Maine radio experience

Maine Internet Radio brings local radio programming to the web


BANGOR - With new computer-based music services such as I-Tunes and Pandora, radio as we have known it is starting to become a dying breed. The need for that old time local radio feel on the internet is now filled with the recent launch of Maine Internet Radio.

Maine Internet Radio is a one-of-a-kind broadcasting company based in Bangor with the concept of delivering great local radio programming using state-of-the-art technology. Launched at the end of January, the company aims at bringing back the elements of local quality programming, advertisements and contests that made radio so fun for listeners to tune into. President and founder of Maine Internet Radio Jeff Solari says he's had this idea for a couple years now of bringing radio back to its original foundation.

If one were to distill the feeling and vibe of coastal Maine and turn it into a radio station, what would it sound like? Maine radio veteran Race Ashlyn asked that question before creating Coastal Maine Radio a new online station designed to reflect the eclecticism of the coast and the people who spend time there. 

Originally from Waterville, Ashlyn says he has always had a fascination with the coast. 'I've always loved it. Even as a teenager, I would load up the car with friends and we'd drive to Pemaquid or Camden there's a vibe that you can only get on the coast,' Ashlyn told me in an interview last week.
