Win a 3-month Premium Subscription to Slacker Radio


Our friends at Slacker Radio are giving 5 lucky Gadgeteer readers a 3-month Slacker Premium Subscription to their streaming radio service.

While Slacker Basic Radio is 100% free for all, Slacker Premium Radio gives subscribers on-demand access to Slacker’s music library in addition to ad-free customizable radio. Here are some things you can do with Slacker Premium:

– Search and listen to specific songs or albums
– Cache radio stations, albums and playlists to your smartphone so you can listen without a connection (better battery life, no data usage and uninterrupted playback)
– Create playlists by typing in songs or by adding them while you listen to Slacker Radio stations
– Share playlists
– View and listen to real-time “top 50” charts for all Slacker genres based on listener and Slacker DJ interaction
– Listen to an artist-specific station that will only play songs from a specific artist or band (i.e. Michael Jackson, Jimi Hendrix etc..)

More information on Slacker Premium can be found at:

Full contest details after the jump.
