Paws Up Radio was an Internet radio station originally based in Second Life that was owned and operated by furries.

History[edit]

Paws Up Radio was founded in October of 2010 by Anora Peart, Buzzard Schuman, and Inferniel Solvang. From 2010 until it went offline, Paws Up Radio was licensed and legally recognized as an internet radio station under Canadian law. Since its early days, PUR partnered with the Xana Broadcasting Network, running simulcasts of Furcast and Friday Night Tech whenever the shows were airing.

In both 2012 and 2013, Paws Up Radio performed live at Fernando's Cafe during Anthrocon. Furlaxation was later chosen as their home convention.

In July of 2014, Wren Mikita became one of the four owners of Paws Up Radio. Shortly after, PUR underwent several renovations; the website and mobile app were updated, the station began to recruit more DJs, and the range of programming offered became much wider. [1]

As of May 2018, the website is down and the broadcast has gone silent. A tweet from the Paws Up Radio Twitter account seems to confirm that the station is offline indefinitely.

Format[edit]

Paws Up Radio offered a wide range of music, from DJs that played only rave or EDM music to DJs that focused primarily on rock.

As of September 2016, Paws Up Radio had 22 furries on its staff.[2]
