宠物网络电台崭新登场(一)

2005-11-08 00:00

    Pet radio purrs around the world

    A California pet lover has founded an internet radio station designed to ease the lives of lonely dogs and cats around the world.

    Styled as "the radio station all pets prefer", DogCatRadio.com goes out live 17 hours each day from a van in the car park of a Los Angeles recording studio.

    DJs speak to pets directly, and ask "pet parents" to send in pictures.

    Founder Adrian Martinez, 34, says the station aims to keep pets company while their "parents" head out to work.

    DogCatRadio's daily play list ranges from the soothing sounds of Irish singer Enya to Elvis Presley's classic anthem, Hound Dog.

    In between tracks, Mr Martinez and his fellow DJs offer practical advice to pet owners, plus a liberal sprinkling of the station's signature sound - barks and miaows.

    Mr. Martinez, an independent record producer, hopes that many of his audience will be listening in while at home alone, albeit with a little help from their human friends.

    "My cat, Snickers, asked me to do it," Mr. Martinez told the New York Times.

    Faced with a nervous, restless cat at home one day, Mr. Martinez discovered that Snickers calmed down almost as soon as he turned up the background music a little.

    "I wanted to do something for the pet community," he said.

    The station, which claims 8,000 listeners each week through its website, currently makes no money.
