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.
or on dat
nothing fancy but there's 500ish radio stations there most of them work
PRs to this file if you want to add stations
or edit your local dat version directly
@tulsi what a dope idea
@scottishwobbly thanks! mainly have done this out of annoyance. There's no good place to listen to good radio. https://www.radiofreeamerica.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
@tulsi annoyance is the mother of invention
@tulsi This is cool! What is dat:// ?
@lesbianhacker yep that's it! It is very cool. I'm just getting started with it. I wish other browsers than beaker would support it.
It does seem really cool and I will definitely be researching it further. So many new distributed and #P2P technologies recently
@lesbianhacker Oh of course I understand it too. It's been around for a couple years. No vetting as far as I know of.
@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
This is cool.
@hairylarry thanks 💚
@simone one of my favorites as well. Added
@tulsi Nice! Thanks! 👏 👍
Ooh very nice!
@tulsi this is so cool thank you!!!
@annabelle_lee I'm glad you like it! 💚
@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 !
@tulsi Nice! Listening now.
@tulsi unexpected comrade. ;)
