From Studio B, where most talk radio shows originate? With a toggle switch between B and Master Control?
“My question still is what plans do you and your allies on the Pacifica Board and elsewhere have to bring Pacifica into the current era and capture a younger audience.
form a task force to figure out what has driven the younger audience
from streaming and digital physical media to retro electromechanical
phonographs (ie, “vinyl”). then adapt that driver for the type of
sound pacifica creates, to facilitate easy migration of this younger
audience from streaming and audio podcast / download to pacifica’s
retro FM broadcasts.
maybe what pacifica needs are more music programs certified to source
all sound from vinyl. i think free radio berkeley had a program called
“vinyl time machine” which did just this. fortunately for KPFA, they
never acquired an FCC license. so let pacifica seize this opportunity!
pacifica could augment the audio broadcast with jacket and liner notes
images over the Internet, and more fully recreate an album experience
which would be new to this younger audience. make sure the task force
examines any necessary licensing for the images.
too bad the younger audience will most often have to appreciate a
seventeen inch image on a six inch screen, but maybe they’ll gather
around the iMac for a nicer and more social experience.”
