Jango is a free online music streaming service that allows users to create and share custom radio stations.[1] Users choose artists to stream, and the station plays music from similar artists. Users can further refine their stations by rating songs and artists in their feed to play less or more frequently.[2]

In 2007, Jango became the first music streaming platform to introduce a social networking aspect to radio stations.[3] Users can share their stations or listen to stations created by others in the Jango social network.[4][5]

The site also provides independent artists the opportunity, for a fee, to showcase their music by recommending their songs alongside that of similar popular artists.[6]

Jango’s business model is derived from advertising revenues and transaction fees from selling music through the site. There is currently no premium services available for the site.[7]

Based in New York City, Jango was launched in November 2007 by Daniel Kaufman and Chris Dowhan, who were previously the founders of Dash.com.[8]
