FOREST RADIO!

Postby dylanross » Tue Jul 12, 2011 6:39 pm

Hello.

I'd like to start a forest radio station. I don't know a huge amount about radio (I've built a few receivers and transmitters but nothing much really) but I think it's a pretty cool idea which probably wouldn't take (too) much time/ effort. We could have it linked with Forest Records and Radio Awesome and get all sorts of other programmes on it. We could have an audio book session similar to the film mondays! Maybe it's an idea for wherever our new home might be, or maybe it's something we can start to work on before we leave. Is anybody else interested? Does anybody have any ideas?

YES. YES. YES.
Story Time (little poetic-philosophical-lifechanging-simple-story telling from you about your life), Forest Monster Tales (the best stories from your Forest), The Worst Song I've Ever Heard 5minute show (self-explanatory), Funky Astros (astrology and signs from dummies to dummies), Are You Talking to Me (love life, relationships and other stuff tips and general wise bonkers advice).

I could go on for hours, I've been planning a radio in my head for years now ahah

Can we make the Forest Radio happen, please please please pretty please with sugar and rainbow sprinkles on top? :D

Nice ideas! I think horoscopes could be pretty hilarious. I think we'll be able to fill up programming pretty fast. We could play some of the best live events to come through forest thanks to the forest documentation team.

Super! Yes yes yes YES! Do it please!!! One special invited guest every week? Maybe live streaming (as in people would do it on stage at the forest, some goldenhoury:-poetry-music-nonsense talk) and the audience could also get involved? (except weirdos :D)
online too, this way all the people who like forest but are not in edi anymore could enjoy our Real Talk

It's good to see so much positivity about the project. I'm back in England at the moment without much to do other than programming so as a break I'll look into what we'd need. Boletes, you should ask your friend too!

You think there is space for Radio Awesome ?

What do you think of a afternoon in August of Nonsens Radio ?

Cool

I'm pretty sure radio awesome should be on there.

Still haven't looked up exactly what we need. I remember a few weeks ago I saw a radio transmitter for small radio stations which made me think "oh that's cheap", but I can't remember how much it was.

So are you thinking like broadcasting in Edinburgh? thats a pretty cool idea if so because internet radio is great but theres so much of it....would be cool to pick up local transmissions and thats something that should be looked at by forest records...we're having a meeting in august i think...maybe best just message me what your thinking?

Thanks very much for that information Mike, it's good to know the legal side of stuff. Any idea how much it costs to obtain a license/ what the requirements are?

I think a 10 mile-ish radius sounds good- it should cover Edinburgh city (at least the center, where I think most of our customers/ foresty people live).

Don't have time to say much else but I have plenty of thoughts which I'll post asap.

i don't think we need one- it seems like we should only broadcast throughout the building...

I think broadcasting through the building is a good idea for the festival project, but in the future it would be good to have a city-wide radio station being broadcast from the forest.

Don't no government own the air.

This is very fucking cool, I would love to see it happen, I think it has been mooted a number of times, myself included,
I got as far as branding it
Radio Motherfucker
[MF FM]
Mother Fucker Frequency Modulation

but I had neither the technical nouse nor the driving chops to see it through.
But I would be more than chuffed to put together 1 hour of broadcast quality programming slotted in within its schedule.
If you operate sans license then maybe you should change your name from Forest Radio to some alternative, Hotel Du FM might be a siggestion.
Back in the not so distant day I recall a documentary on pirate radio, it made for equal part grim and hilarious & often embarrassing viewing, gangster wannabe frontings and such, hold on, it's up on Youhole, well worth a watch I should say
Towerblock Dreams

Anyways.

We could try and get a grant, buy a licence and relly on local sponsors to keep it going.....or we could do it pirate...forest is a collective so if anyone cared theres nobody to really pin down right? I doubt anyone would care anyway cause we'd not be making money. Maybe theres a loophole somewhere :p

Or go the internet radio route like http://www.live365.com/pro/index.html and post flyers around edinburgh....probably the easiest but least cool option.
