Internet radio is older than you think. In fact, it’s at least a quarter-century old… and maybe even a little older. That’s the history Dom Robinson uncovered, and he joins to tell the story. He’s the co-founder of online video company id3as and a contributing editor to Streaming Media, and he reveals how he discovered what likely qualifies as the very first internet radio broadcast, which happened entirely by accident.
Dom then discusses the technology that brought internet radio to the masses – at least the masses who were on the internet in the mid 1990s. He also shares why he thinks internet radio is often overlooked, and why MP3 is an enduringly important technology.
