ay 1, 2013 - Los Angeles, CA -- Welcome to Transcendental Radio and Transcend Radio where creativity is fueled and inspired without bounds! Once a week musicians take over the DJ booth and lead our listeners on a journey into their minds and musical loves. Thanks to our relationship with the David Lynch Foundation and their name sake (iconic film maker and story teller - David Lynch) the Transcend Radio approach is a theatrical one. Here, we score our shows while creating soundtracks that illustrate the feeling behind each show and will keep listeners entertained 24/7. We ask our musician DJs to forget everything they know about radio, break the rules and do what ever feels right.
To help launch this new concept, Live365 has provided two internet radio channels to help raise funds and awareness for the David Lynch Foundation.
Channel 1. Transcendental Radio (ORGANIC / New Age) is 98% DJ free, meditation music and soothing sounds created to pipe into TMCenters, spas & health resorts, health food markets, yoga centers, and, doctor & dental offices. Carlos Niño (KPFK DJ, in Los Angeles) has stepped in as Program Director and will be the official DJ of the station.
Channel 2. Transcend Radio (Pop Culture) will redefine public perception of what Transcendence means, as we transcend music genres, cultures and beliefs. We've enlisted musician supporters of the David Lynch Foundation as host DJs of their own radio shows. Currently the programming ranges from straight ahead music spins, interviews, jam sessions, live concerts and even radio drama. All of our content is original and created by musicians with an affinity for the T.M. movement.
Transcend Radio will launch officially on May 01, 2013 online with plans to include satellite and terrestrial radio stations. Preview a few of the shows at Live365.com
"Transcend Radio goes to the core of what Live365 is all about," says CEO Hong Lau, "ensuring passionate groups have tools to reach and engage their communities with the anywhere, anytime accessibility of internet radio. Not only does this project leverage the capabilities we have developed over 15 years supporting some 50,000 independent web casters, but this particular project attracts my own personal interest as a part of the meditation, health and wellness movement."

Our DJs are musicians who also support the David Lynch Foundation, many of which have provided at least one new, previously unreleased song which will be launched exclusively by Transcendental Music and sold via ITunes and the TMusic Online Store.
