Casual commentary about political, cultural and economic issues with a particular interest on the city of Winnipeg by John Dobbin
Oh, you know I'm down for this. The main obstacles to establishing a new co-op station in the city would be the CRTC licensing, the Industry Canada approval to secure a frequency, and the patience necessary to get through the application processes for both. Compared to those steps, the content generation and delivery seem almost deceptively simple -- although, of course, the end product would depend upon the declared intentions of the station and its category of its license.(I had some training and practice with open-source radio broadcasting software and organization during my Library and Information Science degree, as strange as that sounds. And, yes, I know that sounds pretty strange.) tl;dr: Yes, I might be interested in this.
Thanks for your reply. There have been a few emails as well to indicate that people are indeed interested.I have no doubt that this is not an easy task. However, the main objective I see right now is to get a list of people willing to form a co-op and assess the various tasks and the people capable of working towards those goals.There is one co-op already in the city in radio. I'd like to get some people together and meet them and see what they might suggest.
