Howdy local music fans!
We are Brad and Jennifer Golden, a dynamic duo husband and wife team and founders of Central Coast LIVE! Radio. Borne from our passion of local music, we champion bands and musicians here on the California Central Coast including Ventura, Santa Barbara, San Luis Obispo, Monterey, San Benito and Santa Cruz counties.
Central Coast LIVE! Radio is an Internet-based station that can be enjoyed through our radio player on CentralCoastLIVE.com or take us on the go and enjoy all this amazing music by heading over to your favorite app store and download our FREE music app for Android phones and tablets or Apple iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch!
Our station was launched in December of 2015, with the goal of connecting local musicians with current and new fans near and far. Since our kick-off date, we have streamed 24 hours a day, seven days a week and now Central Coast LIVE! Radio attracts loyal listeners from all over the world!
We originally started the station with the intention of funding our operation through the conventional model of selling air- time to local businesses for radio commercials. However, we’ve gotten such great feedback from listeners about how much they enjoy listening to the station without commercials, we’ve decided to reach out to our community and help us continue to broadcast and promote these great musical artists through a listener-supported model.
This has become a major passion project for us, but this requires time in sourcing new music, writing scripts, recording, editing audio files, station planning, scheduling and general management, producing live, on-location broadcasts of local concerts as well as covering expenses for equipment, travel, streaming and hosting costs, etc., everything a normal radio station would do.
There are so many things we want to do to improve and grow Central Coast LIVE! Radio but in order to do that, while keeping the station commercial free, we need support from our community of listeners.
