There is a group of volunteers developing support for sharing the message of Peace via radio. 75% of the world population lives in rural areas and their main source of information is radio. Clearly there can be great benefit in joining forces to make the message even more widely available though this avenue.
The initial focus is on the U.S. and Latin America, but the model will be applied internationally. The project is being developed in collaboration with GPI and MSG, who will approve the promotional spots and creative audio media which will be produced. The Radio Initiatives Team is working on resources to explain how to approach stations effectively. Some communities are already producing radio shows, for example Asheville, North Carolina in the U.S., which currently has two Internet radio stations.
Right now there is a keen need for radio content.
A site is under development that will enable members of the worldwide radio initiative community to download material for use in radio initiatives. This site will be monitored and have access via a password. There is a recording studio in Otavalo, Ecuador in process of creating radio spots. Also several musicians have offered their material, including Kim O'Leary, Stuart Hoffman, Danny Ellis, Ron Clearfield, John Adorney and Eduardo DeSignore.
Any little effort towards this initiative counts. If you can share audio production abilities, recent events audio excerpts for introducing the message or other materials, everything will move even faster. You can reply to this message and it will be forwarded to The Radio Initiatives Team. When the site is up and running you will be able to reach the team directly.
