Active Worlds Radio (AWRadio) is an virtual radio statio broadcasting 24/7 within the Activeworlds universe.

History

AWRadio was founded in 1995 by PC hard/SilverFerret. Since then, it has been operated by volunteer Station Managers, the most prominent being Archergirl. Under Archergirl's leadership, AWRadio saw its best years featuring a full roster of shows as well as the highest rated show, The Goober Zone. After Archergirl's resignation, AWRadio saw a decline during the week, only peaking on Friday nights for the weekly Goober Zone.

In 2008, then-current Station Manager Keith Thomas announced that he would no longer be managing the long running station, handing over management to MrMeh. However, due to a lack of interest and declining universe patronage, MrMeh announced "AWRadio might not have the highest numbers anymore. AWRadio might not be hosting the events we were famous for. But I can tell you AWRadio will still be around in some form for years to come," before placing AWRadio on hiatus. In April 2012, AWRadio launched a 24/7 auto streaming service meaning that the station would remain online without human intervention.
