Until now the only services existing, focuses on large commercial/national radios in specific markets and countries, which is only useful and affordable to big record labels, publishers and collection societies. WARM on the other hand specializes in monitoring as many radio stations everywhere, allowing the industry to know, in real-time, whenever/wherever a song is being played on radio. We cover everything from BB1 to the Vatican radio.

WARM is a completely new data set to the music industry. By knowing, in real-time when your music is being played, you have e new tool to help you locate your emerging markets and fanbase. The radio is by far, the format with most listeners on, and according to the last UNESCO report, 94% of the worlds population listens to radio in a week.

We have seen a tendency that f.ex genre specific and college radios are playing a lot of independent music, and not necessarily the commercial top hits like the biggest radios.

By knowing when and where you are being played on radio, you can use this information to improve f.ex tourbooking, controlling of radio promotion and in general establish a better insight on where your listeners and fans are, as the demographics f.ex could be very precise.”

WARM is by far the biggest covering “radio monitoring platform” in the world. We monitor 25.000 radio stations in 130 countries, 24/7, and cover DAB, web and terrestrial stations.
