Section 101, a New York-based company that develops simple and effective tools for artists to market, promote and monetize their brand online, is thrilled to announce the re-launch of Radio Woodstock’s website at https://radiowoodstock.com. Broadcasting out of Woodstock, NY, Radio Woodstock 100.1 WDST is one of the leading independent radio stations in the US. Progressively mixing classic rock with emerging artists, the station’s innovation has been rewarded with many industry awards and intense listener loyalty. In 2005, the station put together a one-day music event, Mountain Jam, to celebrate their 25th year on the air. It was such a massive success it has now grown into a four day Festival in May in Hunter Mountain, NY, featuring four stages of non-stop music. It is one of the premiere Festivals in the US, with Rolling Stone magazine listing it as one of the Top Eight Festivals in the Country. Mountain Jam is independently produced and owned by Radio Woodstock and artist Warren Haynes (Allman Bros/Govt Mule). Among the key features on the newly designed website are Radio Woodstock’s extensive Archives of audio and video from the past 31 years which include over 300 live recordings, ranging from Graham Nash to Jimmy Fallon. The concert and local events listings have also been expanded with detailed information on a wide array of activities, providing a comprehensive single source for what is happening in the Hudson Valley. In addition, listeners are able to easily submit additional local events via a form on the website. The site also gives the audience easy access to “Now Playing” as well as a recent station play list history. Radio Woodstock has additional audio steams available including Radio Woodstock 69, music exclusively from the original Woodstock Era, '67-'72, and Radio Woodstock Live, live music from the top festivals and concert venues around the world. Radio Woodstock’s president/owner Gary Chetkof commented, “We hold a very important position in the Hudson Valley as a source for music, news and event information, and at the same time we are also an international destination for everything ‘Woodstock.’ We are incredibly proud to have a website that reflects both of these functions.” Says Section101¹s CEO Liz Leahy, “We’ve worked with Radio Woodstock for a number of years and were so pleased to be involved in their re-design as well as re-launch. Radio Woodstock’s site is a reflection of the importance the station holds for its very devoted global audience. The station has been an important, and longstanding, member of the Section 101 family, as well as a seminal part of the Woodstock culture.” ABOUT SECTION 101: Section 101 has developed a revolutionary new web-publishing platform that enables music artists, celebrities and other entertainers to proactively take charge of the proliferation of digital content on the web and effectively market their brand across the growing number of online channels.
