Are you looking for a way to fight boredom every Saturday night and to make new buddies at the same time? Then you should check out this highly interactive radio show.

"Saturday Night Online Live with Romeo" is hosted by radio veteran Tim “Romeo” Herbster.

Every week, Romeo plays hits based on listener requests, and also does candid interviews with music superstars such as Demi Lovato, Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez and Shawn Mendes.

His show reaches listeners across multiple platforms: on-air, online and via various social media platforms such as USTREAM, Facebook, Twitter, Skype and Snapchat, connecting listeners with today’s music superstars.

The SNOL audience can chat with celebrity guests, make new friends through social media, or choose the next song to be played – and they keep coming back for more. It’s like a big family reunion that goes on every week.

Romeo first took to the airwaves as a teenager in Pennsylvania.

He has worked in Nashville, Salt Lake City, Detroit, New York, Paris and Philadelphia, and now is back in New York, although his show is available coast-to-coast.

He has appeared on E! and MTV, and been featured in Rolling Stone, People magazine and the radio industry trade publication Friday Morning Quarterback.

His cast members include Maxwell and producers Coleen, Tony, Tracy and Tyler.

Some of the artists who have had their music world-premiered on the show include One Direction, Selena Gomez, Austin Mahone and Fifth Harmony.

“I’ve been lucky to establish incredible relationships and friendships on the label side over the years, and have had enlightening discussions with all of them on digital integration and breaking artists,” Herbster told Friday Morning Quarterback.

“We understand each other’s goals and hit a lot of home runs.”

SNOL also has an hourly 15-minute mix show called “The Twittamix,” with DJ Jay Mac and DJ Prostyle. All of the requests that are aired during this segment come from their

Twitter followers.
