Hey if anyone likes community radio stations

I'm building a little app for listening to them in the browser. Kind of like a car radio dial but for the world.

commonradio.org/

or on dat
dat://e23a16781465a4a8f3607c82a7ee60f0866aec108f4f0ded21978c2753a1efb1

nothing fancy but there's 500ish radio stations there most of them work

PRs to this file if you want to add stations
gitlab.com/tulsileathers/commo
or edit your local dat version directly

I know the search box is broken before anybody @s me about it

@scottishwobbly thanks! mainly have done this out of annoyance. There's no good place to listen to good radio. radiofreeamerica.com
never works
soundtap.com/
is almost there but doesn't have enough stations

and I think they're both abandoned. Because there's no money in community radio. It's by nature anticapitalist

@bamfic @scottishwobbly
Yep I know that one but it's not easy to use it's more of an art piece. And not all of the radios are non-commercial community stations

@tulsi replying so I remember to add my uni station, love me some freshair.org.uk

@Jane lovely I'll add that for you. It's the first station from across the pond! Currently only have north American stations

@Jane this is added now. it takes a while to load for me (probably cause I'm in the US). Search for freshair in the box

@tulsi
Very nice! Please consider adding KGNU (Boulder and Denver, CO), probably my easiest go-to while driving.
kgnu.org

@tulsi hi tulsi! I'm volunteering (like 200+ volunteers in this radio) in a french non profit local radio station. I'd like to know what exactly is a community radio ? It could be a webradio or "hertzian" radio but with non commercial purposes.

Also, if my radio station (called "Prun" based in Nantes, FR) fit to the definition of community radio, how could I add it on the map ? And add others that I know ?

This is a great idea, thank you so much to create and share it !
