Quotes:
Attributed to J.D. Heilprin, founder and CEO of AGOGO
"Awesome audio programming is bountiful, but today it is trapped inside content silos and spread across apps. Consumers are changing, but old delivery platforms like terrestrial and satellite radio are lumbering dinosaurs, entrenched in their archaic ways and unable to adapt. We built AGOGO to radically improve the audio experience for people on-the-go."

Attributed to Devin Sevilla, Sr. Software Engineer and API Tech Lead of Rdio
"AGOGO extends the Rdio service in an amazing way. We love working with developers who embrace our API and are aligned in our vision to provide consumers with instant, easy access to endless entertainment they already love and great options for discovering new things they'll enjoy."
