WHO WE ARE

Spark FM Online is a digital radio platform that was created to empower and amplify the underserved voices of the community. Based in Boston, Ma, our station provides a local and professional platform where DJ’s, personalities, and artists have the unique opportunity to create their own messaging, mixes, and music, while engaging listeners on both the neighborhood and national levels.

WHAT WE DO

While sharing the artistry of both local and mainstream artists is at the heart of Spark FM, we are way more than just your average radio station. One of our primary goals is to intentionally invest in the community through partnerships, community service, and providing access to important information and resources. At Spark FM, our programming is reliable, relevant, and relatable.

HOW WE SERVE

Spark FM Online provides opportunities for more urban and upcoming talent to be heard and recognized on a professional broadcast platform.

 

We specifically work with DJs and on-air personalities who were born and raised in a city whose mainstream stations have consistently “turned down the volume” on their under-represented voices.
