Interesting story in Wired
reports that media giant Viacom is creating a new AM radio station in San Francisco that will play content made up entirely of listener submitted podcasts
. This is a great idea, and one that less mega-corporate organizations should consider as well. Already shows like Democracy Now!
, the Global Shortwave Report
and Bad Cop, No Donut
are downloaded as MP3 files by hundreds of radio stations around the world and rebroadcast over the airwaves. How cool would it be to do something similar to Viacom's KYOURadio with a different editorial spin? It would be very cool.
