Venom Radio was started with the express reason of doing it right. There are thousands of online radio stations out there who don’t and we look to raise those standards as hosts and as a radio station. Following the DMCA, our hosts play the rock and roll and metal they want during their shows–this is a true group of music fans of all genres of rock and roll and metal from the 60’s to present day. As long as it is hard rock or harder, you’ll probably hear it on one of the Venom Radio live shows!
Unlike many online radio stations, we proudly are self-supported and pay our monthly fees via StreamLicensing ensuring the artist gets their fair share. Not doing so not hurts the artist whether they are “big” or “small”. “Self-supported” also means no one “owns” us and we have ultimate freedom while following applicable laws. While these laws are somewhat cumbersome at times, we believe that this is the only proper way to do this.
We receive no pay for doing this, but have gotten some donations from time to time which have gone directly into the operating costs of Venom Radio.
We endeavor to bring the highest quality of interviews.
We are currently supported with music from Metal Blade Records, Prosthetic Records and Relapse Records, EMP Label Group and Mascot Label Group as well as other promotional organizations and from some of the bands we play. We also have our own personal collections.
