Slacker Radio Upgrades: How They Work & What You Get

unnamedOf course your Slacker Radio Basic account is awesome! You have access to a ginormous music library and tons of news, talk, and comedy content, and you get to customize your listening experience. So why upgrade to Slacker Radio Plus or Slacker Premium?

Allow us to break it down for you:

• Zero Ads
When you upgrade to either Radio Plus or Premium, we take away the ads. Every. Single. One. No commercials, just music. Or comedy. Or news. Or whatever you want.

• Offline Listening
Download stations so you can keep listening when your signal is weak, preserve your battery life, and save data, which can save you big bucks. Depending on your data plan & usage, upgrading to Radio Plus or Premium can pay for itself…and then some!

• Skips
Running out of skips can be pretty frustrating, but that will NEVER happen when you upgrade to Radio Plus or Premium. You’ll have UNLIMITED skips, so you can skip, skip, skip away until you find the song you want to hear.

• On-Demand
One of Slacker Premium’s cool features is the ability to play songs and albums on demand. You want to hear a particular song or album, you hit play, you hear that particular song or album whenever you want. Told you it was cool.

• Playlists
Build, listen to, and share your own custom playlists with Slacker Premium—you’re in total control of choosing the perfect music for any moment.

Kaleo Wins After Gambling On The One Commercial Without Talking Animals/Babies.

Kaleo‘s “Way Down We Go” is featured in this UK skin care commercial along with world class ballerina, Alessandra Ferri, dancing with a hologram of herself at 19…Between the song and her dancing, I was covered in goosebumps 10 seconds in.

Thanks to the spot “Way Down We Go” is the #1 most shazaamed song in the Uk. It is also edging it’s way up the Weekly Alternative Countdown.

Definitely an ad win. Sorry puppy/monkey/baby.

Katy Perry’s “Rise” Video Is Right On Time Because The Rio Olympic Struggle Is Reportedly Too Real.

Source: AV Club

Olympic determination has taken on a whole new meaning given the problems that have plagued Rio 2016 so far. From robberies to murdering the Olympic mascot, to the death of two people when the Olympic bike path fell into the ocean, to swimming in dead bodies and human feces. Yep you read that right. Oh and let’s not forget the Zika virus.

So thank you Katy for giving Olympians “Rise”. A song that might give them the extra oomph they need right now to finish a race….if that doesn’t do it, maybe these photos of her paddle-boarding with a nude Orlando Bloom will do the trick.

Insert obligatory “Rise” joke here.

Britney Spears’ Male Dancers Perform “True Test Of Trust” On Jimmy Kimmel’s Bed.

Remember when Rihanna woke up Jimmy Kimmel in the middle of the night? Now it’s Brit-Brit’s turn. Jimmy got a surprise bedroom performance of her latest single “Make Me”! As exciting as it would be to have her bump and grind on your bed, I’m pretty sure her dancers were the real prize.

via GIPHY

I could watch this move over and over again for two reasons. 1. Think about yourself doing that move with your friends, would you be that confident? Secondly, for the mesmerizing grace. I hope you too will make it your latest moment of zen.

Are You Excited For The Olympics?

Because I’m pretty excited for the Olympics. Parker here & I can’t help it, any event where nations are competing brings out my inner patriot. But overall, it’s just amazing what these athletes are able to do after years and years of practice and sacrifice and dedication.

A few Slacker artists are helping with the festivities this year – you probably already know about Katy Perry‘s contribution.

IF THAT DID NOT GIVE YOU GOOSEBUMPS, YOU MIGHT BE A ROBOT. I’M JUST SAYING.

Fifth Harmony are ready to cheer on the US Women’s Gymnastics team, too, retweeting a preview of the team’s theme.


YESSSSSSSSSSS! USA! USA!

I’ll be watching the Opening Ceremonies and tweeting Friday night – watch with me and talk back by following @parkeronslacker!


Get psyched up between now and then by listening to Party Hits on Slacker!

There’s Something Missing From Charlie Puth’s New Video…

…hmmmm, what could it be?

Charlie Puth finally released the much anticipated video for his track with Selena Gomez, We Don’t Talk Anymore, and it’s great – except for one glaring omission.

The first time watching I was all “wow, Selena looks different here.” Then, about a minute in “oh. That’s not Selena.”

Fans were none too pleased either, leaving youtube comments like “I SHOULD BITE OFF YOU OTHER EYEBROW FOR NOT HAVING SELENA IN THE VIDEO” and “CADÊ A SELENA? ESSE NÃO É MEU MUNDO!” which, loosely translated from portuguese means “WHERE IS SELENA? THIS IS NOT MY WORLD!”

I guess Selena’s been pretty busy on the road with the Revival Tour. Too busy for Charlie, apparently.

Charlie did pull off a pretty great, slowed down solo performance of this song at the Teen Choice Awards over the weekend.

See what Charlie has to say about the video on Buzzfeed, and listen up for all the latest from Charlie, Selena & more of your favorite Slacker artists on Today’s Hits!

ETA: Charlie’s response.


Justin Timberlake Has Completed His Metamorphosis to The Dad Phase

Justin Timberlake was presented with the first ever Decade award at this weekend’s Teen Choice awards. The award is meant to recognize “his continuous evolvement as an artist over the past 10 years”, plus this just happens to be the 10-year anniversary of his hit album FutureSex/LoveSounds. What a coincidence, right?

JT went full dad mode on this audience of kids, reminding them over and over that he is now old, dropping references to the Reverend Al Green (teen audience response – “huh?”) and slinging quotes from the late, great Muhammad Ali. He wore a buttoned up cardigan and rounded out his acceptance speech with a reminder to be nice to your parents.

DAD ACHIEVEMENT UNLOCKED!

All in all, though, it was a pretty touching speech. Check it out in full below, and spend some time with JT on Slacker – you can hear what makes Justin Justin on the Justin Timberlake: DNA station, listen to his biggest hits on Justin Timberlake: The Count UP, or throwback to FutureSex/LoveSounds – check out the deluxe edition here.

Snoop Dogg Probably Won’t See “Sausage Party” Thanks To Jimmy Kimmel.

You know the old saying hot dogs are made with “lips and a**holes”? You’ve heard that right? I don’t think any of us believed the process of making weiners was pretty however I’m not sure Snoop got the memo.

If you too felt betrayed, check out this list of worldly cuisine. Those dishes make a hot dog look like an avocado.

Consequently, the new Seth Rogen movie Sausage Party might be out.
