Maybe we could use voice chat software like Roger Wilco (rogerwilco.com) to have a sort of low-budget de-centralized FSP Net based talk show.

Speaking of decentralized... I read about this app on /. :

http://www.peercast.org/

Peercast is a p2p broadcast service, based on the Gnutella protocol.  Actually, Peercast clobbers Icecast into Gnutella.  The Peercast FAQ indicates (I can't confirm or deny this) that when properly set up for the job, the Peercast server can act as a standard Icecast server.  So, if people won't download the peercast software, they would still be able to get the broadcast -- it'll just cost the host more $bux for bandwidth.

Using it would require a LOT less bandwidth than the centralized servers, spread out over many more connections.  But the FAQ makes it sound like setting the Peercast server up for dual operation is a non-trivial task.  Peercast is also a beta, where Ice and shout have stable production versions.

Instead of starting our own show we should be worried about getting the word out on the established national shows, especially Boortz who would love the FSP.  I am writing an e-mail to him but does anyone know if he is aware of us?  go to nealboortz.com and write.

ML:

I think it's apples and oranges, and we'll need both in our diet.   Existing talk shows are great for getting the word out. But starting our own show would be more for our internal entertainment, culture and community building.

Imagine how fun it would be to be able to dump an FSP talk show on cassette once a week and then run out and listen to it on the way to work.

Or to be able to call in and argue with Palindrome or whoever.  

Or to air our own music, our own internal ads, etc.  

Boortz' show will hopefully be good for getting the word out, but not so great for any of the above.  
He's been contacted, by the way, in fact I think I'm one ofthe ones that contacted him.  Not much has come of it yet, and I'm sure it wouldnt' hurt if you did the same.  Contact any talk show you like, really.

So, guys, why is this effort to get our own show stalled out?  I know people who have done more ambitious Net radio than this all by themselves.  See http://live365.com for more ideas.  Wish I could help more, but I'm bogged down with Activator and volunteer mobilization issues.  Hopefully going to the root of the volunteer deficit problem will do more good for the radio show than anything else I can do.

Arright, again, here's what looks like the answer when it comes to getting an FSP talk show on the air *now* for peanuts.  I'm talking 5 bucks a month.

http://live365.com/broadcast/packages.html

BTW, today I asked a local deejay where to get good info about Net radio and he sent me straight to that link.  But I had already found it on my own.  So people have heard of it.

Any takers?   I wish I could do something like this myself, but I have already strapped on about all the FSP projects I can handle.  However I bet I'd be able to contribute material here and there once the rest of you get a show going.

I just wanted to let everyone know about Ernest Hancock’s libertarian talk show here in the Phoenix Arizona area called “Declare Your Independence with Ernest Hancock”  

his website is
http://www.ernesthancock.com/

He’s broadcasted every weekday morning here in the valley on 1310 KXAM.  

He has interesting libertarian speakers on a regular basis who discuss the whole spectrum of libertarian issues.

Boortz has mentioned us more than once, and he spent about half an hour discussing us recently, I believe thank to Stumpy.

But as the previous post discussed, we will need local media specifically targeted to Porcupines. I'm hoping to pitch a show to a local station once the state has been chosen, and I have a few thoughts down on paper.

I won't be able to do it alone, this is going to be an ongoing effort that can be as big or as small as the number of people who get excited about the idea of freedom.

First step may be getting an internet based show off the ground; show em what we can do.   See my post above about how easy this is.

Since no one else has stepped up to the plate I'm thinking of doing this myself but not sure I can keep the thing going indefinitely.

Hello talk radio listeners,

     I happen to host my own talk show.  Previously on FM, and moving to AM here in Sarasota, FL.  I'm very close to becoming an FSP member and my co-host hails from Nashua, NH.  You can tune in at http://www.freetalklive.com
     It's not a politically focused show, it's open format.  Enjoy!

Regards,
Ian

I spotted this interesting site today and thought it appropriate for would-be FSP broadcasters.

http://publicvoice.fm/

It looks like it could have potetnial. Or at least, it looks cool.  ;)

What if Dada and I wanted to participate as well? How many "hosts" would we need to have a 24-hour a day ongoing show?

Any interest?

Dada,

If you get something going, I'll play a supporting role (co-host, or whatever). I am already spearheading one large FSP related project (a book), so I don't have the time to spearhead a radio station, but I think it is important to get started.

Hmm, our only competition when I checked that site was a German foofy music station. We might actually get some listeners that way :)

I'll investigate further.

I'm also like Pal. am probably not in a position to spearhead this, more in a position to provide content here and there.  Will inform if this changes.

Do you have any desire to be in charge of such a project?

A radio show for/by FSPers would be awesome. For at least one thing, it could be used to educate the local listeners on the advantages of freedom. I don't know how tough it would be to get a spot on a small station. The time slot might not be great, to start, but anything would be better than nothing.

We could also be sure to call in to existing talk radio shows.
