The Station

Psychedelic FM is a commercial-free internet radio station that plays psychedelic music from the 1960s. We also play psychedelic music that was released in the ’70s, ’80s, ’90s, or later, that sounds like it was released in the sixties. We broadcast 24-hours-a-day, 7-days-a-week in 128kbps MP3 format (stereo). Psychedelic FM started out as a small, unknown radio station on Live365 Radio Network back in 2015. Our station eventually became very popular among psychedelic music fans on the network. Unfortunately, due to changes in U.S. licensing laws, Live365 closed its doors on January 31st of 2016. They re-opened (with new owners) in May of 2017, but many of the things that we had loved about the original scene were gone (like the community forums), so we didn’t return to Live365. We decided to become “big time” independent internet broadcasters, and use SHOUTCAST to provide our listeners with an endless stream of groovy tunes. 😎
