Furocity Radio, or just Furocity, also known IPAW, is a music internet radio show based in Second Life owned and operated by furries.

History[edit]

Furocity Radio was started in May 2013. The station started off as a strict classic rock format station known as Flux Aura Radio. DJ Cody, as the station manager, and partner at the time, DJ Woofy, as the owner at the time, started the station as a partnership. DJ Woofy owned the name Flux Aura and the DJ liners[clarify](Woofy owned DJs?) at the time and also had the connections to the voice over talents. DJ Cody was the main funding source, acquiring the stream and the rights on Second Life.

In July 2013, DJ Woofy resigned from position with Flux Aura, disbanding the company. DJ Cody took the current resources and started a new station named Furocity Radio as a sole proprietorship.[1]

Many friends and fans of Flux Aura came to DJ Cody's aid in helping to restart the station. Skan, one of the many voice talents used in Furocity's commercials, is credited for coming up with the name Furocity. After a short brainstorming session, many names were thrown around as ideas for a new "furry based rock station".

Shortly after the restart, DJ Cody appointed a new management staff. The staff included DJ Dustin, assistant station manager in charge of advertisement and DJ talents. In August 2013, DJ Foxxy (also known as DJ Allure) who was former owner of the SL rock station 97 Rock, joined Furocity staff as the station manager.

In October 2013, DJ Cody appointed a Public relations manager, Tobias Coulture, to oversee the station's social media sites (Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr).

DJ Cody also started real-world advertisement after commissioning an advertising image from furry artist Jailbird.[2]

During mid 2013 the station gained proper licensing for royalties.[3]

On December 30th, 2015, it was announced that Furocity Radio would close down internet streaming due to an increase in copyright royalty rates.[4] In the same post, it was also announced that its sister stations, Furry FM and Growl Radio, would be shutting down as well.

On 2016 January 8, post to Facebook said "Help stop the licensing boards from keeping rates High so small webcasters like us can come back."[5] As of 2016 June 26, Furocity's Facebook, Fur Affinity and Twitter accounts are still online.

Furocity went back on the air live on September 18th, 2016 [6]. The website is back up and running at www.FurocityRadio.com

Format[edit]
