Do you think it would be a good idea if we had our own internet radio station?
Here are facts about Internet Radio from Wikipedia – “Internet radio (also web radio, net radio, streaming radio, e-radio webcasting) is an audio service transmitted via the Internet. Internet radio involves streaming media, presenting listeners with a continuous stream of audio that cannot be paused or replayed, much like traditional broadcast media. Internet radio services are usually accessible from anywhere in the world—for example, one could listen to an Australian station from Europe or America. Internet radio services offer news, sports, talk, and various genres of music—every format that is available on traditional radio stations. There were “some 57 million weekly listeners of Internet radio programs. More people listen to online radio than to satellite radio, high-definition radio, podcasts, or cell-phone-based radio combined.”
I am thinking that with thousands of hours of bhajans, kirtans and lectures available along with devotee interviews, ISKCON News and even reading of our spiritual texts (Bhagavad Gita, Srimad Bhagavatam etc), we could have a 24-hour service available on any of the available digital radio devices out there!
Devotees can buy one of these radios and listen to them at home or office, offering them with a wide variety of programs they would have normally missed. They could be running in our temples and centres too. And with many cars coming with internet radios installed, the drivers and their passengers can tune-in. And perhaps, we may find even non-devotees wanting to connect and listen to our songs and insights.
